This story reminds me when I was in a bakery associated with Whole Foods and some dude was being extremely rude to the girl behind the counter taking his order. Like in this story she couldn’t have been more polite or accommodating. It was over quickly so I didn’t say anything, but as soon as he walked a bit away, but still well within earshot (which I made sure of), as she was about to take my order I said in a loud, cheerful voice as I looked over at the guy, “Some people can be total jerk assholes! It’s unfortunate!”
It was Whole Foods, full of snooty yuppies, and I knew that guy wouldn’t say anything or do shit and of course he didn’t. Most of those types have never been challenged in their life outside of a corporate meeting, and have never challenged anyone, either. I glanced over at the dude again and smirked, but he wouldn’t even look at me. Fine with me.
Anyway, the point is that of course she couldn’t say anything, but I found a free cookie in my bag when I got home that I hadn’t ordered. She was always equally friendly to me the other times I visited, too, but after a while I stopped seeing her there. I’m guessing she quit; good for her.
