I had read something about this randomly somewhere. This just happened to me about 5 minutes ago.
Im moving with my boyfriend into a new house and we are in the process of packing. In the past, I had luck at gas stations and Starbucks for free
boxes. So I went to one gas station and they said they didnt have any right now.
I went across the street to the next gas station. I walked in and went right up to the counter.
Out of courtesy, I dont usually just start talking to the clerk I wait until they say 'can I help you' or whatever.
So Im standing there (there are two clerks) and a woman comes in, walks in front of me, and buys gas and walks out. So now Im like "Umm" and I look
at the clerk woman. Shes looking down at the desk reading.
So then a guy comes in and buys a soda and walks out. Meanwhile I am standing at the counter, with my hands on the counter.
So finally I say "Uh. Hi. Um. Im moving so I was wondering if you have any boxes?"
I got completely ignored. After about 20 seconds, the woman looked up kind of in my direction and looked back down at her paper.
I wait another 20 seconds, just looking around, thinking 'wtf?' and she finally looks over to the other guy and said something like "That big
wall" and I said "Ok, nevermind" and walked out.
What the crap? It made me feel like no one could even see me. Im not a little person or whatever, Im a 20something in a tank and jeans with a tattoo
on my arm.
This ever happen to anyone?
