I would like to start by explaining that I work with a local Farmers Market and today we hosted a Face Painting Company to entertain the children at Market. I joined in on the fun and had my face painted with the kids. Once I was home from work, I made a quick trip before dinner to the local grocery monopoly, IGA.
When inside (with face paint still bright and beautiful), I was very obviously laughed at by my cashier and the cashier working alongside her. Another employee came in as I was picking up my bags and stared so hard that I had to glance over to make her aware that I noticed her awful gawking.
If this had been the first time that this had happened, and if it were only because of my face decor for the day, I wouldn't be so bothered. But sadly enough, the times that this has happened to me with even no face paint at all is genuinely uncountable.
Today I made the vow that I knew I should have long ago.. I will never step into Manchester IGA again. I have never been treated so rudely by anyone, especially employees, in my entire life and today is the day it finally ends!!
