This Mom’s Reaction After Her Son Harasses A Supermarket Cashier Is Brilliant.

The vast majority of youth I encounter are well-behaved, polite and friendly towards their fellow human beings. But there is, unfortunately, a minority that seems to have lost all understanding of the word “manners” and have no concept of what it means to be polite to strangers. Here’s a story that reflects just that. The story, which I came across online, is told by a store cashier – but it’s difficult to know if it happened in real life or not. My feeling is that it may be slightly exaggerated – but the storyline seems otherwise very realistic to me. Basically, the cashier has the misfortune of encountering a miserable teenage boy who seems to believe he is God’s gift to women. A sudden surprise encounter quickly changes everything though… Read for yourself below.

Here’s the story:

(I’m up working the cash register on a slow day, when a teenage boy comes up. He looks to be about 14. He’s sagging his pants, trying to look tough.)
Customer: “Hey, baby.”

Me: “Hi there, sir. How can I help you today?”

Customer: *leans on the counter* “You can get me your number.”
(I’m 25, and engaged.)

Me: “Sorry, but that’s not going to happen. Can I help you with anything else?”

Customer: “Why the f*** not, you stupid b****?!”

Me: “One: That would be illegal. Two: I am happily engaged. And three: even if I ignore the first two, it’s against company policy.”

Customer: “You’re a f***ing b****! You should be happy I want a piece of your a**!”

(As the customer continues ranting and raving, a woman appears behind him. She reaches out and taps his shoulder twice.)

Customer: “What the f*** do you want—”

(He turns around. All the color drains from his face. He manages to squeak out some words.)

Customer: “Hi, mama.”

(She smacks him across the face.)

Customer’s Mom: “I did not raise you to be a self-entitled douche-bag! I did not raise you to think you are better than this poor girl!” *she grabs him by the ear, and shoves him against the counter, facing me* “Now, apologize!”

Customer: “But mom!”

Customer’s Mom: “Now!”

(He looks close to tears. He mumbles out how sorry he is, and how it wasn’t fair of him to treat me like a piece of meat. His mom, by his ear, pushes him towards the door.)

Customer’s Mom: “Go.”

(He walks out of the store, ready to cry. She turns to me, gives me a huge smile, apologizes again, and even buys me a gift card. Apparently there are some good parents still out there!)
