I went to the grocery store yesterday. I picked up a loose grocery cart from the parking lot and went in. As I entered their were 2 women waiting in the cart storage area for some carts to be brought in. They were both dressed in a non-western style. One woman was older. For some reason she seemed to think she should get my cart. The younger woman quickly stepped in, stopped her from pulling on my cart, and redirected her back to the storage area. The younger woman mouth sorry over the older woman's shoulder. I smiled and mouth it's ok. It could have been cultural differences, it could have been the woman had some type of dementia, or was just entitled. Doesn't matter, it was handled politely.
So I have no idea why the man who followed me into the store, thought it was appropriate to start complaining to me about the two woman in horrible racist terms.
I gave him the look and quietly said, "I have no idea who you are but keep your racist comments to yourself and leave me alone,"
I'm guessing I looked pretty angry, because one of the managers intercepted me and asked if there was a problem. I told her he had made a racist remarks about the women waiting for a cart just because of a small miscommunication.
The manager nodded and said, "Thought it might be something like that." She smiled and walked off towards the man. I noticed that if I saw him - I saw her close behind while I shopped.
So I guess he has caused problems before.
