    Bigotry Is His Game

    | OH, USA | At The Checkout, Bigotry, Employees, Top

    (I go to a video game store with my brother to pick up a guidebook for a new game. We look about the same age, and are often mistaken as a couple. I go to the cash register to ask about the book, while my brother looks in a different section.)

    Me: “Hey, do you have the [Game] guidebook in stock?”

    Cashier: “Yeah. Does your boyfriend want one?”

    Me: “Uh, no, I do. That’s my brother.”

    Cashier: “You’re still buying it for your boyfriend probably. They’re [price].”

    (I know how much the book costs, which is lower than the price the cashier gave me.)

    Me: “That’s not the price. It should be around [correct amount].”

    Cashier: “Sorry, girly. That’s the price. Take it or leave it.”

    (I go back over to my brother, and ask him to get it for me. I can hear them from where I’m standing.)

    Brother: “Yeah, one [Game] guidebook.”

    Cashier: “All right, it’s gonna be [correct price]. I knew she was just gonna get it for her boyfriend.”

    (At this point, I’m fuming. I storm over to the cash register.)

    Me: “Look, boy. I’ve been playing [Game] longer than HE has. He is NOT my boyfriend. He is my brother. I’m a f***** lesbian, and my girlfriend already has one. I want your manager out here NOW.”

    Cashier: “I AM the manager.”

    Me: “I want your boss’s number.”

    (He reluctantly gave me the district manager’s number. I called and explained to him what happened. The next time I went in, there was a new store manager.)

    The Situation Is In Hand

    | FL, USA | Coworkers, Health & Body

    (I’m working a normal daytime shift with my coworker. As I take a box cutter to cut open a box to take in some inventory, it accidentally cuts my finger.)

    Me: “Ouch! D***, let me go get a bandage and clean this up.”

    Coworker: “You baby.”

    Me: “What?”

    Coworker: “You’re worried about a little cut like that? You’re such a baby.”

    Me: “Well, I’d rather it not get infected. You know how many boxes this box cutter has cut? Better to be safe than be sorry.”

    Coworker: “Whatever, you’re still such a baby.”

    (I get it cleaned and treated in the bathroom. A few days later…)

    Coworker: “Hey, do you mind if I cut open this box?”

    Me: “Sure, go ahead.”

    Coworker: “Ow! I cut myself!”

    Me: “You wanna go get that cleaned?”

    Coworker: “Nah, I’ll just use a paper towel.”

    (True to his word, he dabbed a paper towel on it and didn’t even bother to wash it off. No surprise, it got infected.)

    Losing The Game

    | FL, USA | New Hires

    (I’ve recently quit my job at a game store. I still go there to buy games periodically. I see a new guy calling people, letting them know about the current special offers.)

    New Guy: “Hello? Is Mr. Smith there?”

    (I hear audible yelling from the other line.)

    New Guy: “I’m sorry, sir; this is [Name] from [Game Store]. I just want to let you know about some specials we have right now…”

    (The new guy goes on to tell the customer the deals.)

    New Guy: *after finishing the call* “Dang! I hate it when they yell at me!”

    Me: “Hey, I used to work here. I highly recommend telling them who you are first before asking for them. People don’t like getting calls from people they don’t know, so if you say you’re from [Game Store] first, and then ask for the person, it should go a lot smoother.”

    New Guy: “Uh, yeah, okay, I’ll try that.”

    (He makes another call.)

    New Guy: “Hi, is Ms. Smith there?”

    (Once again, I heard audible yelling from the other line.)

    Me: *facepalm*

    Call Of Duty: Misogynist Warfare, Part 5

    | USA | Bigotry, Employees, Technology

    (I love video games. My brothers and I were basically raised on video games by both parents. My brother and I head to the local game store near our house to check out the wares. I’m a girl.)

    My Brother: “We are going to look for more Bioshock Infinite stuff today.”

    Me: “Okay.”

    (He and I begin looking at shirts, DLC and other items related to the game. All the while, I am getting dirty looks from the male clerk. I assume he is new, as I’ve never seen him before.)

    Clerk: “You’re a girl that plays games? Don’t you know girls are supposed to be in the kitchen?”

    Me: *shrugs* “So? I play video games all the time dude, so chill out.”

    Clerk: *scoffs* “I heard you and your brother talking. I bet you don’t play Bioshock Infinite.”

    My Brother: *chimes in* “She beat it before I did.”

    Clerk: *glares at me* “Prove it.”

    (I’ve had enough of the clerk’s attitude, and tell him the ending to the game. He remains silent for a while, and doesn’t bother me again until my brother has me buy him another game.)

    Clerk: “So, I don’t believe you. Where are you in the game?”

    Me: “Stuck on Lady Comstock’s second battle—”

    Clerk: “Ha! I knew it!”

    Me: “—on ’1999 mode.’”

    (’1999 mode’ is the extra-hard version of the game that is unlocked only by completing the game once. The clerk shuts up, rings up my brother’s game, and then asks me for my phone number.)

    My Brother: “Back off a**-hole; she’s got standards and no way in h*** would I let you treat my sister like you did today.”

    Me: “I don’t date dudes anyway.”

    Call Of Duty: Misogynist Warfare, Part 4

    | Port Lincoln, SA, Australia | Bigotry, Employees, Technology

    (My older sister and I are buying ‘Ape Escape 3′ to play together. We go up to the counter and a worker I’ve never seen before is there.)

    Me: “Hi, could we please buy this? I also have [store reward card].”

    (I give him the game and card. He puts the game back where it was on the shelf.)

    Sister: “What are you doing?!”

    New Employee: “That game would be too hard for a couple of stupid girls like you.”

    (I am offended, as I love video games and I am intelligent.)

    Me: “Okay, I don’t want to deal with this. Is [employee I am friends with] here today?”

    New Employee: “Fine, but he will just say the same thing.”

    (The new employee gets my friend, and my sister gets the game again.)

    My Friend: “Why did you call me out here?”

    (The new employee explains what has happened.)

    My Friend: “Okay, let me get this straight: you aren’t letting [Me] and her sister buy a video game just because they’re girls?”

    (The new employee nods.)

    My Friend: “You idiot. [My Name] is a frequent buyer here! She loves RPG games like Dragon Quest, Pokémon and Ape Escape, so let her buy the d*** game!”

    (We get the game and take it home. A week later I go back to get ‘Dragon Quest VI,’ and I see that the new employee isn’t there. I ask my friend about it.)

    My Friend: “Yeah, apparently he did the same thing to heaps of other girls, and he even got an extra $300 from an old man who was buying a video game system for his grandson’s birthday. He got fired!”
