This is how a guy reacts.

Sorry, I should have put this in a spoiler because of the coarse language in the video. I will do that now.

 

I am sorry but this person’s voice and mannerisms are masculine. I really think this person could have laughed it off. That is what a woman would do. “You need new glasses, Buddy.” or “Thanks for calling me ‘Sir’ but my friends call me ‘Madam’.

  1. It’s all about the rage. You could say that being offended is all the rage. The guy behind the counter should not have apologized and should have called the police after the guy became violent and abusive.

    Never apologize to SJWs; it only emboldens them. If there is anything can be learned from the incident and countless similar ones, it’s that.

  2. I wonder if the counter clerk had been a woman, and she called him sir, if the guy would have become abusive like that. I have a friend, a tiny Italian grandmother, former RN, and she’d have set him straight if he’d given her any lip about genders.

    The clerk handled it as best as he could. The main thing in that situation is be the one that is calm because then it emphasizes the problem is on one side.

    I wonder if this person will lose their job since this went viral. No company wants an employee that can’t handle things like this. Instead of calling the store’s corporate, the corporate that is most familiar will want to talk about this.

  4. What I wonder is who made the video and why.  My guess is that this was a set-up “gotcha” with the guy verbally abusing the clerk in cahoots with the person videoing the confrontation.  Note that the clerk says “you guys” at one point, implying there is more than one involved.  This looks like “guerrilla theatre” staged to embarrass the store, clerk, and get clicks for the perpetrators.  It’s just a cruder version of the set-up “bake the cake” assaults on independent businesses.

    I was wondering who was recording too.

  6. This goes beyond rage; I suspect a little mental illness and I’m frankly weary of watching people insist they are something they’re not. There is enough subterfuge in this world as it is.

    Have any of you ever heard a woman go “take it outside”? I haven’t.

    No indeed. Most women are smarter than that and will run outside.

    Disagree. We don’t know how the story ended but it wasn’t going well. There was a clear threat of violence and action to back it up. This is a job for the cops. The video only makes the wacko look… wacko.

    The fact that you’re even asking this question proves the situation was not handled well. Did the clerk’s apologetic stance prevent you from thinking his job was in jeopardy? Apparently not.

    I was talking about the customer not the clerk losing their job.

    What do you think the clerk should have said?

  9. Could you image if this person came in wanting to be seen as another ethnic group? Cultural appropriation BAD. Sexual appropriation GOOD. Things are so crazy now.

    Explained in a previous comment. More explicitly, tell the wacko he’s calling the cops, to stop wrecking the store, stop threatening violence immediately, and most importantly, no apologies.

    The clerk would immediately proceed to call 911, saying there’s a violent, deranged person in the store threatening people. That idiot would run out of the store so fast that it would make everyone’s head spin.

    The first person to call the cops gets the presumption of innocence.

    I disagree. The first option is to try to calm the person down. If one called the cops every time a customer went off the rails no work would be done. I do get that your way is the just way but it causes a lot of paper work. I didn’t see the clerk saying “I’m sorry” as an apology but as being empathetic to the customer’s concern.

    There is also the safety concern. If the clerk is working alone who knows what this guy might do. It looked like it was at night. If you have more people you can call a manager to deal with this person while the clerk can continue his job. That didn’t happen so I figure he was by himself.

    I used to work retail and I could tell when the holiday season was around. People were under stress and reacted differently. After New Year’s it settled down.

    Do you think this kind of incident is a daily, or even weekly occurrence at the Game Stop? I mean, including kicking over displays and threatening the clerk with violence. It’s a serious question. I’ve never worked retail over the holidays. I have shopped in stores over Christmas and have never observed such an incident.

    I didn’t take the threat very seriously. I think you have customers who get out of sorts but usually not at this level.

    This reminds me of Sen. Boxer being upset about being called “ma’am”.  Maybe this person also “worked so hard” to get to be called “ma’am”. I know if I had to “cut out” some things I might be really upset too. (Okay, the last part was trying to add some humor.)

    It was a non “testy” comment I thought. 😉

  15. I think he should have been taken outside, called an ugly man in makeup, and then gotten an old-fashioned whuppin’. But then, the whupper would be in jail on “hate crime” charges.
