I was going to try to get through this whole post before I left a comment, but I could not bypass this one. One white lady, after telling her I did not work at a store, stopped to ask me a second question. I told her “I already told you I do not work here. Why the fuck are you asking me what aisle something is in?” Her response, “Well, I just thought you would know.” Why? Would? I? Look? Like? I? Know? It took everything in me to just walk away and not read her from top to bottom.
