The Best Thing That EVER happened at my job

  • Me:Did you find everything ok today Sir?
  • Male Customer:Yeah everything was fine, but prices on the cat food just keep going up! I remember when it was only .30 a can! But I bet you don't, you're like what...20?
  • Me:21, but yes.
  • Male Customer:God you're young, I bet you'd never go out with someone my age, unless you have some Daddy issues
  • Me:...........
  • Male Customer:so do you like working here? Are you in school?
  • Me:Your total today is 21.38 Sir.
  • Male Customer:Are you seeing anyone?
  • Me:......Cash or Credit Sir?
  • Male Customer:When do you get off work?
  • Male co-worker comes up next to me:Everything ok?
  • Male Customer:Yeah we're fine
  • Male Co-worker:Actually I think you're being really rude
  • Male Customer:What are you her boyfriend?
  • Male co-worker:No I'm not. And even if I was, why would it matter? Her job is to ring up your items, make sure your shopping experience was pleasant and give you change. You're making really creepy comments to a young woman you don't even know at a cash register, it's not ok.
  • Male Customer:You can't talk to me that way! I want to speak to your manager.
  • Me:It's really ok, everything is Ok
  • Male Co-worker:No no, I'll go ahead and call our FEMALE boss up here to address any grievances you might have *Sir*
  • Male Customer:slams down 25 dollars grabs his bags and leave*
  • Male Co-worker:You don't even have to take anyone's shit here. If anyone even looks at you funny, pick up that phone, call a manager, call me, call another co-worker and it will be handled. You are a valued employee and you deserve to feel safe and respected at work by *everyone*

We were grabbing a bite of lunch at a small cafe, in a mall, right across from a booth that sold jewelry and where ears could be pierced for a fee. A mother approaches with a little girl of six or seven years old. The little girl is clearly stating that she doesn’t want her ears pierced, that’s she’s afraid of how much it will hurt, that she doesn’t like earrings much in the first place. Her protests, her clear ‘no’ is simply not heard. The mother and two other women, who work the booth, begin chatting and trying to engage the little girl in picking out a pair of earrings. She has to wear a particular kind when the piercing is first done but she could pick out a fun pair for later.

"I don’t want my ears pierced."

"I don’t want any earrings."

The three adults glance at each other conspiratorially and now the pressure really begins. She will look so nice, all the other girls she knows wear earrings, the pain isn’t bad.

She, the child, sees what’s coming and starts crying. As the adults up the volume so does she, she’s crying and emitting a low wail at the same time. “I DON’T WANT MY EARS PIERCED.”

Her mother leans down and speaks to her, quietly but strongly, the only words we could hear were ‘… embarrassing me.’

We heard, then, two small screams, when the ears were pierced.

Little children learn early and often that ‘no doesn’t mean no.’

Little children learn early that no one will stand with them, even the two old men looking horrified at the events from the cafeteria.

Little girls learn early and often that their will is not their own.

No means no, yeah, right.

Most often, for kids and others without power, ”no means force.”

from "No Means Force" at Dave Hingsburger’s blog.

This is important. It doesn’t just apply to little girls and other children, though it often begins there.

For the marginalized, our “no’s” are discounted as frivolous protests, rebelliousness, or anger issues, or we don’t know what we’re talking about, or we don’t understand what’s happening.

When “no means force” we become afraid to say no.
