Ok, I know people make fun of people...whatever, it's human nature. But since when is it ok to make fun of a customer in front of another customer? Especially if that customer is mentally challenged? This clerk just irritated me! And the fact that he spoke to my sister and I in a tone that insisted we make fun of the poor man too was even more irritating.
So basically we were at the register, ready to purchase stuff, when this poor man walks up to the guy who was helping us, and goes "Is it ok if I try these shoes on?" Harmless question right? Not to the clerk. He tells the guy kindly "Yes, of course it's ok" then when the poor guy leaves, turns to me and sister and proceeds to make fun of him. Calling him stupid and slow and a retard. We just looked at him very shocked. And he did not stop at one joke, he had to keep rolling them out for our entire transaction. He was very arrogant.
I guess I am more sensitive to this because I used to work at a drugstore that was right across the street from a cafe that only employed mentally handicapped people. So I would see them everyday and get to know them and think they were the sweetest people. I am honestly outraged. And am considering filling out a complaint form. However I'm not sure if this is going to far. What does everyone think? Am I taking this too seriously?
