I forgot to tell you guys a very important story that happened at my new job. I’m working at this secondhand bookstore, but we also sell DVDs and video games and other things. And the company is very proud of the fact that they are very anti-censorship (which I like very much). So because of this, we happen to have this one cabinet in the store that is stocked with porno DVDs (it’s called the pornoire). So occasionally (a.k.a. rarely) I ring someone up for porn, and it’s whatever… like I don’t say anything and the customer doesn’t either.
But this one time this guy came up to the register with a stack of video games and he says something like, “Oh, just a heads up, there’s adult content in this pile and this is very awkward for me. Because you’re very pretty. Like you’re the type of girl I would usually try to flirt with.” So then I’m like, “Um… okay, it’s fine. Um… thank you… ?”
So I’m thinking he’s just a super weirdo and he’s just talking about how some of the games are rated M… but then in the middle of the pile of video games was a hentai DVD… and I froze for a second and got really angry and disgusted because a) it’s porn, b) this dude lamely tried to flirt with me, c) I’m obviously of Asian descent, d) therefore I’m OBVIOUSLY a cartoon character made for his sexual pleasure… the list goes on. So I got done ringing up this white man piece of shit in silence and shoved his bag across the counter and walked away.
