Something happened today that made me really angry.
My boyfriend and I were going to Target, and I saw a Sally Beauty Supply that I had never been to before. I usually go to a different Sallys. I told him that I wanted to go in and look around, so we did. I'm the kind of person who can probably walk around a beauty store like Sallys or Sephora for hours. I never get tired of checking out the products. I'm also a very indecisive person, so I spend a lot of time thinking about whether I should buy things or not.
The woman working there asked me three times if I needed any help. Each time I said to her, "No thank you, I'm not looking for anything in particular. Just browsing." We were in the store for around 10-15 minutes when she comes up to me and says, "Look, if you don't need my help with anything I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. You've been walking around the store for a while, and it's suspicious of burglary."
At first I thought she was joking, but she wasn't. I couldn't believe that she was accusing my boyfriend and I of looking like thieves. I didn't do anything wrong or weird while walking around. I was just looking at the products like I usually do in any other store. Just because I wasn't in and out of the store in a minute makes me look like a thief? Not needing her assistance means I have intentions of stealing? I was SO angry. I put the product I was holding back on the shelf and told my boyfriend that we were leaving. I was planning on buying something, but I definitely changed my mind. I wasn't about the give that store my money.
Now that I think about it, I should have said something to her. I should have told her how rude she was. That it was wrong for her to accuse us of looking like thieves when we didn't do anything wrong. But at the time, I was so angry and shocked that all I wanted to do was leave and not deal with her. I have NEVER been accused of looking suspicious. I was so upset that I started crying afterwards in the car.
This happened at the Sally Beauty Supply on Maryland Parkway in Las Vegas. I definitely won't be going back there and I wouldn't recommend anyone else go either :(
