Ran errands after work before the weather worsens again.

Went into the autoparts store. No greeting from the employees at the counter. A hot woman walks in right behind me and the employees leapt to help her. They also jumped to help a couple who walked in a minute after here. I couldn't get anyone to answer a question until I was up at the counter; it was like they purposely avoided eye contact.

Next went into a general store. Stood for a minute or two behind a lady checking out. She gets her change and grabs her bags. I'm just about to set my things down when another lady squeezes past me, put her item on the counter, and says 'I'm with her.' Cashier takes her (performing a completely separate transaction) and she takes off with the first lady.

I was too tired to argue with anyone regarding either scenario, but geeze, I know what stores I won't be going back to.

That happened to me a couple of months ago... was at the grocery store. Guy at the register (50's? maybe early 60's?) never said a single word to me... but as soon as he saw the pretty girl behind me in line he couldn't wait to strike up a conversation. I complained to the grocery store, not that they'll bother to do anything.

Let the managers and/or corporate know. If they are at all interested, there'll be words ... if not, you haven't lost anything except a few minutes and possibly a stamp or two (unless you've used email). But in case the manager and corporate really do care, they should be told that their staff are driving customers away.

I'm a man and think I'll get a sex change next time I go to Auto Zone. Lovely bunch of employees there.

As a chick that enjoys working on cars, I've encountered the worst behavior imaginable out of parts store employees, but also the best.

One of my favorites, however, was the time I decided to get the attention of the store employees by taking off my top (there was a bikini top underneath and I am generously endowed in that area) and asking them what I had to do to get a fucking part around here???

Maybe I was in a tiny bit of a bad mood that day.

I think many employees that day were happy to give you their fucking part.

They might have been, but they didn't stand a chance.

Yeah, there's a reason I have this particular parts store I go to. They have a girl working the counter and helping out. She probably knows more than the general wishes-he-knew-more-about-cars that comes in. I firmly believe that because of her being there, the male staff treat the female customers the same as the male.

Second one? I think in my tired moods (which is when I become bitchy) I'd have told her and the cashier, "Welp, I'd like a member of management please. Call them while you're waiting on 'I'm with her, but not really with her, because I can't stand her enough to stick with her in the store.' Oh, that's rude? Lady, rude is cutting the line and even more rude is accepting your stuff to ring up." I do not handle tired well. Tired is when the aches start and misery loves company.
