We are not racists. We treat everyone equally, black, white or polka dots.
Most of you have seen pics of my hubby. He is 6'6" massive, with a long, greying beard & deep voice. Most 'lil' ones think he is 'Santa'! Older folks think ZZ Top.
OK. So last week I posted about my medical problem. My darling went to our local pharmacy we have used for 30 years. He had just moved to bigger storefront across the street. All Tom wanted was another pack of large band aids to cover the blisters. (hang with me here) Ya know how, at the grocery store, when cashier has a problem and needs a supervisor to 'key' register to clear or authorize? Well, at the new location, the pharmacist (John) WAY upgraded systems. To clear register requires a FINGERPRINT SCAN! Cool Beans!
So the poor assistant makes a boo-boo on the band aids (or system did, still new) & needed the pharmacist on duty to 'print' register to clear. So.. there is this black woman standing there (among a few other customers of assorted heritages) when cashier asked for help and she says..." Just get HIS prints from the Post Office" Tom & cashier both do a double take. Took a few tries, all during which this woman made derogatory, nasty remarks aimed at my husband.. I am SO proud of him! He keep his tongue! But, he (and others) shot her some dirty looks. Out of the blue to be 'profiled' and attacked like this? Geeze!
