jerks

As a girl working in an EB Games/ Gamestop, I get a lot of shit. Constant “fake gamer” comments and “do you even like video games”, or “do you even play video games?” thrown at me almost every day. I’m put on the spot and if I don’t know every minute detail about some game no one’s ever even heard of I’m asked why I even work here. There are times however, when genuinely great human beings show up.
I have a group of regulars, all around 14 years old, who are always in my store and sometimes witness this. Anytime they’re in the store, as soon as the others leave they talk me up and tell me that they’re just jerks and not to worry. Today, I was especially tired and was having trouble with my words. Because of this, I had a few rude remarks about my intelligence and performance. These kids show up just as the rude customers leave to purchase a game with some energy drinks. I jokingly said I needed one of those today before they left. Ten minutes later, these same kids show up, one with his hands behind his back, and hand me an energy drink with a bow on top, telling me they hope I feel better. They went on about how they usually don’t even come in the store if I’m not working, because I work hard and deserve their business. I’ve never been so close to tearing up in front of customers my entire life. The kids gave me a hug and went on their way, and I never felt so sure of myself at this job before. Being a girl in a largely male dominated culture is hard sometimes, but stick with it because we deserve a larger spot in this culture, and we should NOT have to “prove” ourselves just to be accepted. I’m getting more genuinely curious questions thank rude ones lately, and it feels so good to be talking on the same instead of being interrogated. It’s funny how something as simple as an energy drink from some regulars can lift your entire day, but hell yeah, I belong here. And not one of those jerks is going to convince me otherwise.

  • Family: Why are you in a bad mood?
  • Family: *acts like jerks for no reason*
  • Family: *gangs up on me*
  • Family: *lectures me for being upset because I should be happy at all times*
  • Family: I think you just have a bad attitude
