To preface this story I should say a few things.
1: This Manager has already had a talking to for being extremely sexist toward her male workers (myself included) 2: She also pins any work she might have to do off on everyone else in the store and sits in the managers office talking on her phone. 3: MLP:FiM has just been released and the new toys have just come in. 4: I've only been working in the store for a month and we just remodeled so it's taking longer than normal to learn the layout of the store.
I was an "Electronic Sales Specialist" at a popular overpriced toy store when a man and his son walk up to the Electronic Counter.
Me: Hi! Can I help you find anything today?
Dad: Not sure. Me and my son are looking for looking for the new My Little Pony toys but we couldn't seem to find them. He's taken a liking to the show. (At a whisper) and so have I.
Me: Ah, well we just gt done with a remodel and inventory so the store is still sort of jumbled. Give me one second.
I turn around and look into the Managers Office as its behind the counter and call for the Bitchy Bigot Manager (Hence forth called BBM)
Me: Hey, BBM! Where did the My Little Pony toys get moved too?
BBM: Oh god...Shouldn't you know that!! (Get's up from chair) I swear. (Walks out of office and sees the Man and his Kid) Who's the Pony Toy for?
Me: This Guest and his child.
BBM: What do THEY want pony toys for?
(At this point, I've had it with her attitude. She's made comments like this before and been written up for it. But this time, I take it into my own hands.)
Me: The same reason that Girls want Nerf Guns. You know what? Nevermind. I think me and the Guest can find them on our own. (On Radio) Service, I'm helping a guest. If someone needs the keys, I have them in girls.
BBM: You can't do that!
Me: Oh yes I can. I've had it with your sexist attitude toward Men and in general. Personally, I like the show as they (I gesture to the customers) do and there is no way I'm gonna let you demean them and me.
The BBM looks flabergasted as I walk off toward the back of the store but am stopped by another person who walks up.
Me: I'm sorry sir. I... (I stop as I notice that this is the District Manager)
BBM: AH HA! Now your gonna get it for talking back to me!
DM: Actually no BBM. I wanted to stop him because I wanted to commend him for handling you the way he did. (To Me) Make sure these guests get exactly what they want. (To BBM) I think we need to have a talk in the back office.
I walk off with the Customer and his son and together we find the Pony toys and I help them pick out their favorites (Dad included) and as I get to the front I see the DM standing there. He tells me that the BBM was fired once they got to the back and that the Guest's purchase today is free of charge. He also gave me and the customer a 50$ gift card as he says that his son has also taken a liking to the show and wants to make sure that anyone can get the toys that they want.
TL;DR Manager was a Bitch and got fired for it. I got a Gift Card for standing up to her.
Edit: A Words and Grammer (Further Edits may be made as I'm at work)
Edit: Also I am by no means a mens rights activist. If a woman had come up with her daughter and asked about Power Rangers and my manager did a similar thing. The outcome would have been no different. :)
Edit: Holy Crap! I Front Paged? I appologize for my grammer! I'm just leaving work now so I'll get to it when I get home!
