Taken aback, I explained that I have trouble seeing blue/green and asked if the dress I had was indeed blue. I was still being polite at this point. The girl on her cell phone turns around and says "If you can't tell then maybe you shouldn't be buying it"
So I said "Normally I wouldn't but it's for a theme wedding. Could you simply tell me the color please"
The girl on the cell phone scoffs and goes back to her phone conversation and the snaps "It's blue" and walks away from me.
I thanked them and went to find someone else to ring up my purchase when I hear the cell phone girl say "Duh...what a moron"
WTF? How difficult was it to say "Yes it's blue" or "No it's green"? Needless to say I complained to the cashier who ended up ringing up my dress and she got a manager who apologized and said he would take care of it. He offered me 10% off which I told him was very nice but not necessary. You know, I've worked in customer service over 15 years in everything from retail, to serving, to phone work and I've never been so offended. In what world is it OK to chat on a cell phone and make comments to someones back? I said I had trouble seeing colors...I didn't say I was deaf.
