    Recently found out that a female customer that came to a retail store that I am currently employed at called the Store Manager upset about me working at a women's retail clothing store. She said I do not belong there and that I should be fired. She then later asked to speak to the District Manager, the Regional Manager, then later to the Vice President of the entire Company. She says that I do not belong there. She then goes on telling my manager I am an idiot, I need to grow up, and that I should start looking for another job. Thankfully my job is in safe hands , but it is still nerve-wrenching. Don't want to conclude that it is Homophobia, but it sounds alot like it to me.

    I've had similar experiences. I'm not allowed to venture into the female fitting rooms because I am so tall and could be accused of looking at the females.

    I'm not allowed to work 3 areas because of it. As a matter of fact, I've even seen the reverse. I was called into the suit department because the guy was extremely angry a girl came to help him.


    People, in general, are idiots. Don't let it get to you.

    Homophobia? More like sexism. Bitch is probably too stupid to realize that you're a homo.

    This because, lets face it, if sexuality were an issue the proper response would be "girl, that man over there can match a blouse to that skirt better than you can!"

    Snap Snap!

    Sorry to hear that man. Don't let it rattle you. This is America, and you are free to work wherever you damn well please.

    The general public is full of idiots. Some people have nothing better to do in their lives than complain. More than likely, the problem has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with the customer and some negative personal issue she has projected onto you.

    Good luck man!
