There were two customers together, I’ll call them 1 and 2. 1 was buying beer so I asked for his ID.
1: “What, you don’t think I’m old enough?"
Me: (internally rolling my eyes) "I just have to ask if you look under 40."
1: "Oh okay. You can’t be more than… what, 16?"
Me, a 25 year old who gets mistaken for a teenager like every day: *smiles and shakes head no*
1: "Well you’re too pretty to be 17."
Having just looked at his ID, I know this guy is 34. So this 34 year old is hitting on me, thinking that I’m 16 or 17. Then his like 50 year old friend comes up and says:
2: "Hey, that’s my daughter you’re talking to.” (No this guy was not my dad, I didn’t even know this guy.)
1: “Well, she’s pretty”
2. “Yeah she’s gorgeous isn’t she? I like her eyes.”
Me: *internally screaming*
Now some people might be thinking, “what’s the problem, they were just complementing you?” No. They were being super creepy, first of all, and second, they were hitting on me thinking that I was a teenager. This is not okay. And male customers are creepy like this all the time with me. It’s not flattering, it just makes me uncomfortable.
