To continue the title: What would you have thought, and how would you have reacted ? Last night I went to Giant, one of the "superstores" here in Waldorf, Maryland. Among the items I bought were two wrappers of salted Mackerel fillets. At the check out, the cashier, white, pretty and attractive, and conscious of it, reacted in a manner which I found to be insulting, tactless, and bottom line: racist. When she got to the two items mentioned above, she said and did something right there in front of me, other customers, and her bag boy. She made a slight face, with the remark that the "stuff" is smelly, she doesn't like it, would not eat it, held the stuff the way one would when handling a dead, rotting rat. I repeat, all these, within hearing distance of me, who sometimes have to wear a hearing amplifier, the shopper who bought the food THEY were selling, treated like a mountain man who eats live chicken, yuckie, yuckie. I was sorely tempted to put her in place right there and then, but that would cause a scene, hold up other customers who had nothing to do with the problem, so I kept the receipt which had her name on it, and fired a complaint to Consumer Affairs of Giant. What would you have done if this happened to you, and how would you have felt ?
