Driving while white ? Disabled ? Human ? Went grocery shopping this morning . Searched for a short checkout line . Spotted a friendly cashier . She's a Muslim woman . I think , first time I saw her , I asked how to pronounce her name , I saw on her badge . She's always friendly and smiling and we chat a little as she checks me out . I had pulled up to the round bagging platform and was collecting the bags from it , although she was bringing the heavier ones to me and putting them in my basket . Once things were rung up , I pulled out my credit card out, and , holding it up , twisted in the seat , to tell the person behind me , who had pulled up against the back of the scooter , "Hi hon , I need to back up ," to reach the machine to swipe my card . WOW ! Was I surprised . The woman behind me , in a very loud voice , yelled out , "You need to apologize to me . You need to tell me you're sorry ! " It went downhill from there . I looked over at the poor Muslim cashier . Her smile had sunk to the floor . I feel so bad for her . We were having such a nice morning , and now it was ruined . I touched her hand when she handed me my receipt , and apologized to her and wished her a good day . My face must have shown my distress /angur . As I reached the door , a very sweet woman who always greets me with a huge smile , and has on occasion helped me with a scooter , asked what's wrong . I kept telling her , ti wasn't the store , it was a customer . We wished each other well , and I left .
