ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY

Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.

Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?

This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”

At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”

"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.

"How is white a feminine color?"

She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.

The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.

A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.

And the son is more mature than her.

This definitely happened, for sure.

Don’t even though. When you work in a position of customer service, like a real one at a mall or at a busy restaurant, in an area where people are willing to bitch as much as possible til they get their way, things like this seem very possible.

I literally had a lady refuse to accept an orange cream slush because it looked slightly yellow. Work a customer service job ever and you will learn how petty people can get about their products.

Absolutely true. I work in customer service at a grocery store the amount of petty crap people do is ridiculous. I had a customer come in and told me that we need to replace his money orders because his girlfriend destroyed them. I told him that it’s not our fault if your GIRLFRIEND destroyed your money orders we can’t replace them. He looked at me like i had three heads. And don’t get me started on price differences, people will stand in line for 10 minutes just to get 15 cents back and a two dollar courtesy coupon. It’s all about the coupon.

I think everyone should have to work in customer service/retail just to see how people really are.
