Long post sorry v.v
Howdy, former overly expensive bra store employee here. So, I recently quit my job because I wasn’t getting the hours that I needed to justify actually coming into work whenever they scheduled me. When my boss asked me why I was quitting, I told her. Her response was that because I was shy and couldn’t hound the customers into buying things (my words, not her’s), she had to figure out other things for me to do (like stock bras or whatever) and it didn’t make sense for me to have more hours if I wasn’t going to be selling stuff.
Honestly. I thought I was doing fine. I was greeting customers, trying my best to sell stuff, but apparently it wasn’t good enough.
I’m actually 98% sure you’re not supposed to do that. Isn’t it discrimination or something?
Not discrimination at all… if you’re shy then you shouldn’t work in sales. Its your job to be outgoing.
There’s probably a conversation to be had here about white men and their belief that their needs and wants are more important than everyone else’s (in this particular case Black women) and white men not taking the anger of Black women seriously.
Also, part of that conversation is the discussion of “Have a sense of humor!” I can’t tell you how many times dudes have done sexist or racist shit and then when called out on it they always say they were “just joking” and to “have a sense of humor”. Such a fucking cop out.
GET HIM GIRL
lol The song at the end.
Am I the only person not on this woman’s side? Okay.. yeah the guy was rude but she went out of her way to be a difficult cunt. Then she maces him because she doesn’t like his attitude? He was laughing at her for taking her sweet time while selecting 8+ muffins just to irritate him. I would have laughed at her ratchet ass too. I seriously hope she faced legal action.
My old best friend is still a great friend of mine. The two of us have been through a ton together. Ever since we became friends at 14 I have always considered her my soulmate. She just called me and is going through and dealing with a lot of really hard stuff. We have always felt each others…
