This didn't happen to me but I was in the store when it did happen. My friend and I were walking up to the corner plaza to get a chocolate bar. We went in, looked around, and headed to the chocolate bar section underneath the front cash. She said, "Do you have any Peanut Butter Oh Henry's? I really like them but I can't find them anywhere!"
The guy behind the counter says, "No... no more just White Chocolate. No more..." He continues to repeat himself for a while as my friend talks about how it's her favourite.
I poke her and point to the box near the floor. "Hey, there's some here," I say. She's like, "Oh awesome!" Then I look at him, kinda curious why he said he didn't have any, and he goes on saying "It's the last box, they're not making them any more... "
So, my friend spots a Maple Oh Henry (seems to be the latest fad here... Maple Chocolate Bars.. Maple Caramilk... it's just disgusting, IMO), and she remarks about how gross it is. I agree. She continues to look at different chocolate bars and picks up a Mr. Too Big, or something to that effect. She remarks about it's size, about it being really too big, and that's when the guy chimes in with:
"Yeah! Just like you! Just like you! Hahahaha. Too Big Just like you!"
I stop short in my chortle about the Too Big being Too Big, and give him the Evil Eye®. Did he just call one of my best friends too big? Now, my friend isn't anorexic, but she's not 500lbs either. She's pleasantly plump as some might put it, but even if she was 500lbs that's totally inappropriate to make remarks like that, especially in a place of business. After some silence on our parts (and my Evil Eye®) he apologizes, still laughing.
My friend says, "It's alright, I usually get that." (I've never heard her "get that" before, so I can only think she just wanted to leave ASAP). She turns to me and asks if I'm going to get something. I look at him and pointedly say, "No thanks." I believe I mumbled something about not giving someone my business who insults my friends, but I can't be sure.
We leave with the Peanut Butter Oh Henry (although if it was me, I would have slammed it down and walked out of the store at his comment), and make jokes about what we should have said as a come back.
"Oh, what's this? Jaw breakers? Oh they're so shiny... just like your bald head! Hahahahaa.. Just like your shiny bald head! hahhaah Just like a jaw breaker, hahaha!"
My friend came up with: "What's this? Licorice? It's so limp! Just like you! Hahhahaha. Licorice limp like you! Hahaha" then joked about how he'd probably come back with "Who are you? Why have you been talking to my wife?"
I don't think there's anything that can be done as it was an independantly owned Dairy Mart (and I'm sure he's the owner). We never shop there (it was a fluke) even since it changed from a Hasty Market, but he guaranteed we won't be returning - ever - until the place is under new management, or becomes another convenience type store.
