I heard the dumb comment from a Sears employee yesterday.
Jersery City, NJ 2pm
There was a white 40s year old guy trying to buy a Blu-ray player and an Indian (maybe Pakistanian?) employee at a register next to me. They were comparing a blu-ray player on the Sears website and the one at the store.
Employee: "It's the same thing, but the website is .05 cent cheaper".
White guy: "Are they the same model?"
Employee: "Yes, this one is model number xxxxxxxxxx."
White guy: "What, wait, can you write the model number so that I can compare it with the one back there."
Employee: "It's model number xxxxxxxxx, just remember the number."
White guy: "My memory isn't that good." He looked embarrassed.
Me to the employee: "You're an asshole" "This customer asked you to write the model number and you said "just remember it"?"
Me to the white guy: "This guy is an asshole, you should complain".
Employee to me: "Don't use that kind of language."
Me: "Then do your job, you lazy ass."
Employee print a little piece of paper and wrote the number down.
White guy to me: "Thanks"
By the way, this is what was left.
PS3 Wet $9.99 2 left
PS3 Wolfenstein $9.99 1 left
PS3 Forelore $14.99 1 left
I'm still not sure what race has to do with any of this.
(By the way: it's Pakistani, not "Pakistanian".)
