I was in line when I told the cashier I forgot to grab something real quick. She said that was ok. When I came back, the old white lady behind me was upset and demanded that I get behind her. I explained that the cashier told me it was ok to leave and come back. I looked at the cashier straight in the eye and asked if she had given me the ok to go grab something. The cashier told me I was correct. Well the lady behind me pulls her cart forward anyway and the cashier processes her while making me wait for the manager who took his sweet time. I was livid. I told the cashier she shouldn't have processed her, she agreed but shrugged her shoulders, as she processed the old bat. I wanted to push the old lady's cart aside, but I knew that would make me the bad guy and I would be called ghetto. When she is absolutely rude and aggressive for no reason.
At first I just thought it was an old lady thing and not have much to do with her being white, but then the manager said that for some reason that store always has customers like that. I'm sick of the white people thinking they deserve more than anyone else. The old lady should have just waited her turn. And the staff should have done something about it, instead of letting their customers be marginalized.
At the end, the manager finally came and discounted me $10, for my inconvenience. Which I was ok with at first, but I bought $186 worth of goods, he could have at least deducted the tax amount ($15). There was a half assessed apology "I'm sorry but there is nothing I could do". Untrue, managers can always do something, furthermore, she could have been escorted out or at least told to just wait. If I was rude to someone in that manner I wouldn't have been allowed to cut in front I'll tell you that right now. Why was she allowed to cut in front of me? The old lady got on her high horse, pulled the racist card, and Petco just conformed, leaving me with $186 instead of $196. Big Woop!
I returned all my items at another location where I felt like I would be treated fairly. Screw her and screw petco I'm off to get a Costco membership.
