Seriously, wtf is wrong with people? I can't afford a car. I have to walk about an hour each way to shop at your stupid fucking store. So yeah, asshole, I carry either a backpack or a messenger bag to carry shit home.
Yet somehow, "uh-oh, new policy, you aren't allowed to come in with that bag."
Well, can't I just leave it up front behind one of the registers?
Well, what about that woman with a bag pretty much the same as mine but twice the size? Just walked right past us and went inside, no problem. You didn't stop her.
"That's a handbag. She's allowed to have that."
It's the same damn bag; her's is just massive.
What really fucking gets me is that it's a god damned Savers. A fucking THRIFT store. You know, where a lot of poor people shop? You'd think a company whose customer base is largely made up of low-income people would understand the basic reality that many of those very same people obviously can't afford a fucking car, and therefore carry some sor... keep reading on reddit ➡
Before I start some context is I live in a rural area and folks are usually pretty friendly around here. I’ve lived here all my life and I’m a white man, I’ve never experienced any trouble and people especially in places like banks and grocery stores are pretty kind and nice to one another.
I was in line at the grocery store and there were 2 or 3 people behind me that I vaguely knew. No one had huge shopping carts or anything as this is a small store.
A girl came up to me, she was African American, and moving very slowly. Despite her color she was very pale and sweating and limping. She asked politely if I minded if she went ahead before me because she had just started her period and was feeling unwell. She looked like she was gonna faint.
She had milk, bread, bananas and sanitary towels and without hesitation I moved back so she could take my spot.
Now the idiots behind me started hollering that they hadn’t said she could cut, I’m physically a large man and turned around and to... keep reading on reddit ➡
My son (23) has a learning disability. He's great with jobs that involve cleaning, stocking and facing.
He previously had a care aid come 2x weekly. She had another job at a pet store. My son expressed interest in employment at this store and I asked her if she could discuss setting up a tour with her boss for him. I thought this would work great because she could drive him to work and he'd be more comfortable working if he knew someone.
She said no. Her excuse 'conflict of interest'.
She didn't last long. She said my son was making her 'uncomfortable' because of how he talks (uh, he has a learning disability). Certain comments made her feel 'harassed'.
Browsing online I found a hiring ad at this store. I instantly told my son to apply, because seeing as she no longer works with him it's not a 'conflict of interest'.
She still works there. I know this because I took my son in for an interview (yah!) and she walked away fuming the moment she spotted us.

I’m all for protests. I won’t say I condone riots or setting buildings on fire but I can understand why they happen (riots are the voice of the unheard), I can also understand looting when there is a scarcity of basic necessities in a time where an oppressor is stockpiling resources while people are dying.
I tried but cannot think of a valid justification for looting a store off the back of someone being murdered by a cop. It seems like opportunistic thievery. I know there’s clearly systemic racial issue leading to inequality and that a small percentage of people are getting disgustingly wealthy, and the elected officials don’t represent people, etc etc. I think that looting in this situation undermines the goal for equality/seeking justice - ie. stealing a bunch of lamps from Target is not only ineffective. This would be pure speculation but based on what George Floyd's family and friends say about him I don't think that he would have wanted to die so a bunch of people can steal from... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m currently living in a small rural area, and I guess news got around that things are starting to lift in other areas because I didn’t see ANYONE wearing masks at the grocery store today when I was walking in. I still had mine on, and I definitely felt like the odd man out, but when I turned down an aisle, I saw a mom and her son (probably about 10 years old) wearing their masks. I could tell the kid felt uncomfortable wearing his, but when he saw me (I’m 27, have some tattoos, weird hair, etc) wearing mine, I think it made him feel better! Any time I saw them around the store after that, he had some pep in his step and was striding around helping his mom get groceries.
Not a big “off my chest”, but I almost felt like I was the weird one wearing the mask today, and it just made me feel better having a little solidarity with someone that was just as uncomfortable as I was.
Edit: Thanks for all the kind words and awards! And I hope some of you don’t feel too oppressed by people bein... keep reading on reddit ➡
In a dad-a-base
Pains me to see people looting phones that are later remotely locked and traced by Apple.
Accessories include: Apple Watch straps ($49- $500+)
Charging cables ($20-$30+)
Adaptors and Chargers: ($50-100+)
So this didn't happen today, but rather about 6 months ago.
Im 19 and have some pretty good facial hair and as most men do when shaving, i tried different beard styles. First one was the goatee, then the cowboy, then just a mustache and finally ending up with the famous square. Unfortunately the trimmers battery died before I could shave it off so I put the battery on charge and left for a few minutes. I laid down in my bed and started scrolling through reddit when I realized I need some groceries. Completely forgotten about my face situation I went to the grocery store. I got some weird looks but didn't think much of it. Maybe I just looked weird without a beard, I thought. Then right as I got to the cashier she said
"umm, I assume that's a Charlie Chaplin cosplay?"
Then it clicked.
"Yeah yeah, umm he's my biggest uuuh, insperation..."
I grabbed my stuff and left as quickly as I could and shaved it off. So maybe don't do what I did.
tldr: went to shave, battery died, went to... keep reading on reddit ➡
TIFU by going into a store with my face covered with this respirator mask with my hoodie on, mind you that im a 6'1 Native guy with tatoos (every other canaidian thinks we are all criminals) while im checking out i pay with cash I then stupidly say put the money in the bag (as in my change from the 50$ bill I used because i dont want to touch the dirty money unless I wipe it down first with disinfectant hence COVID-19!) The lady freaks out and runs away from the register crying then the manager comes I try to explain through my heavy respirator while sounding like darth vader what happend she gives me my change back along with a dirty look I then awkwardly walk out of store with my head down in shame, im never going back to that store again.
I couldn’t quite figure out how to word the title but I hope that makes sense. Basically, here in Maryland, most grocery stores have a Maryland-themed clothing section off to the side. Lots of shirts and sweatshirts with the state flag, crabs, Old Bay, etc on it. I’ve never really noticed this in the states that I’ve visited (most of the east coast, and then California and Arizona) and I was wondering if any other states did it?
