    (Note: This happened about 6 years ago when I was trying to spend my birthday money on comic books. A girl comes in all dressed up to pass in a resume; note that she has a guide dog. She gives it to the owner and smiles softly.)

    Girl with guide dog: *to owner* “I was hoping you’d be hiring.”

    Owner: *takes her resume* “How about you come in Wednesday at two for an interview?”

    Girl with guide dog: “I’m sorry sir, I’m hard of hearing. Would you mind facing me when you talk?”

    Owner: *gruffly* “Nevermind. There’s no openings. We just finished hiring.”

    Girl with guide dog: *sadly* “Oh…thank you anyway.”

    (Having overheard everything, ALL the customers in the store simultaneously left without buying anything. I haven’t been back since!)
