Hey guy's, I have a interesting story about a employee freaking out about nerf. So I went to pay for my longshot at the cashiers desk, and I am only 13 so I don't know why he asked this but, " Aren't you a little old to play with gay nerf guns?"

I was a badass at the moment so I replied, " The only thing gay here is you."
Then, " SHUT THE HELL UP YOU LITTLE PRICK!"

The manager comes over and says, "Is something wrong?"

" Yes, your employee is treating me like shit."

The manager talks to him, fires him, and gives me a free $50 dollar gift card to TRU.

That's the end. So, has this happened to any of you?

Dude, you realize you just got a person fired, don't you? Don't you think that you shouldn't be the one complaining? And besides, the employee has a point. We are too old to play with toy guns. If you really care about what you look like then you wouldn't be doing nerfing. Funny story though. :lol:

EDIT- I suppose he could relax a bit though...

Funny story, You got some guy fired, and free money.
Don't worry about the age thing, wait until you realize that you are buying toys, and the cashier is rather hot.

edit: upper, the guy works at TRU during the holidays, give him a break

That's not the point. The point is, it's not illegal for us to play with stuff for kids, is it!? No it is not. He wouldn't sell it to me 'cause I was 13. 13! So obviously he got fired, and I am glad he did.

Holy shit, silentsnipe, that is so like you. I had that happen to me once, but it wasn't as fierce. When I was buying my first longshot while I was 12, the employee said " Do you big hefty men want to carry this yourselves?" ( Sarcasm ). Then I just walked out.

I got a 20$ giftcard to Home depot because one of their employees told me he had better things to do than help me find 1 1/4 PVC... He probably did but another employee overheard him, and told the manager. I don't think the guy got fired, but the manager was pissed.

See, exactly. Some people don't know what nerf gun's can do to you, especially modded.

What, did you type that wrong silentsnipe, or did he actually say "aren't you a little young to be playing with gay nerf guns?"

Because if he did, that's just weird. No one's ever given me crap about buying nerdy toys. Maybe it's because I'm 6 feet tall and generally look kind of grumpy. Even though I'm a toothpick...

Ha. Going to have to keep this story in mind the next time some employee decides to treat me like shit.

Target is a lot different, though. The way they handle their disputes:
  • conflict
  • manager approaches
  • conflict somewhat resolved
  • No GC's given
  • Leave. End of story.
This was a customer dispute, so If an employee was involved a bit more with the conflict, I am pretty sure that there would be some compensation for my trouble...

I get a lot of comments on the NERF toys I buy, but nobody's ever called them gay before.

That's probably because of my charming charisma. I just flash them a smile (assuming it's a female checker) and they ask some silly question. I then tell them that I like to have fun and am really a kid at heart. If it's a guy and he even tries to give me a hard time, I just look him in the eye (at which point he realizes I could crush him like a bug) and say that I modify them to put holes in dry wall.

That's how I roll.

When ever I need to buy a gun, I bring my 6 year old brother along (Im 16) and I use him as a scapegoat. It works especially (Spelling) with the ladies they all think Im the caring older brother. and thus I avoid all conflct with any employees. But serioiusly there is employee customer etiqutte that most employees have to know.

I guess being 30 they just assume I'm buying toys for my kids or something, but I've never had anyone give my purchases a second look.

Of course, I don't understand why someone would automatically assume that something being purchased by a teenager is necessarily for them, especially during the holiday season. Do they not understand the concept of gift-giving?

Regardless, a store employee should never intentionally insult a paying customer like that, especially with no provocation. Telling someone they are "too old" to play with a "gay" toy is fairly offensive in my book, and I would not wish to be spoken to in such a manner by a person employed by a company with wich I am spending my discretionary income.

I don't think the manager did anything wrong, especially since it is likely that someone who would make a comment like that has likely done (or would likely do) other similar things.

Ambience hit it right on the head.

If you pay decent money at a store for reasonably over-priced toys, then why should you be treated like shit?

I just always aim to get in a womans checkout line. It doesn't bother me when someone says something if they do. I kind of have that air of "I don't give a shit what you think." My hair is dyed red, I dress well, and I've had to put up with it for a year that I'm a Fashion Design major. Stuff like that doesn't bother me.

I'd hate to tell you, but it's quite possible that the guy was in a bad mood just like you said you were. And just because you're both acting like you're having your periods doesn't give you guys to act like 5 year old girls to each other. So, he got fired from a job he quite possibly needed and you walked away with more money... where's the justice in that? Plus, if your 13, you shouldn't be acting that way to someone older than you no matter how crappy they act to you.

He wasn't in a bad mood just that day. He always has done shit to me. Once before this, he was all like," Ohhhh nerf guns, I am so scared, Grow up." When he said that I walked away.
