Hardware Store Shenanigans: Cute Manly Girl

As a woman who worked in a hardware store I was pretty used to dealing with people assuming I couldn’t do anything. On this day I was working on the roof top garden and just doing my job. A man came up and began asking me about the mulch options.

“Yes of course. We have many options of mulch. You can go with cedar mulch, which can be a natural pesticide. We also have a wide variety of colored mulch, but be careful as it may stain the trunk of your car.”

As the customer was weighing his options I took that opportunity to run to the main floor.

When I came back I found out that he had noticed my leaving and before leaving asked the cashier “Where is the cute manly girl? I wanted her to load my mulch.”

  1. You are a full grown adult. You can load your own mulch.
  2. Did you seriously just say you wanted to watch me load your mulch?! That is just fowl.
  3. “Cute Manly Girl”? How is that supposed to be flattering? Just because I’m not weak and I know about mulch?

So Bad…
