Few days ago, I went to the mall to buy important things to bring on the vacation. I was on the counter area waiting for the cashier to finish punching the amount of the items that I bought. I am so shocked when the cashier told me the amount of the sunblock that I bought. Her voice irritates me because she asked as if I cannot afford to buy such. I am angry and her in a sarcastic way. I saw her face turns pale when I answered her. I did not mean to say those words but her approached does irritates me and makes me angry. I am so discriminated I guess because of the way I look. I asked myself, what is wrong with my attire?
What the…..! This is what I keep mentioning after paying the items that I bought. I was shaking and wanted to scold the cashier but was able to control myself. I felt humiliated in front of the other shoppers who are waiting for their turn. I know that my answer is not good, but I was just giving her back the thing she give to me. A dose of her own medicine as they say. I just hope that it was a lesson she has to learn. For her to not look down every shopper. Wearing simple clothes does not mean a person cannot afford to buy expensive one. Let us not judge the book by its cover because looks is deceiving sometimes.
