Anime Fan Faces Sexist Employee, But When His Identity Unfolds, the Store’s Fate Hangs in the Balance.

In a test of wits and wills, the Original Poster (OP) contends with a misogynistic employee at a local anime store, igniting an unexpected online movement. As the store’s sales dwindle and the owner begs for mercy, we are left wondering: will OP stand her ground, or will she cave to the pressure?

A Tradition of Love

OP and her boyfriend have an adorable anniversary tradition. They go to a store, separate, and buy each other gifts which they exchange in the car. This year they decided to visit a new local anime and video game store.

Unassuming Encounter

OP, a self-confessed anime enthusiast, started browsing for a gift for her boyfriend. Suddenly, a store employee approached her and initiated a conversation. The conversation took a surprising turn when he pointed out her leg, adorned with an impressive Kakashi tattoo from Naruto.

The Interrogation

The employee began questioning OP about her tattoos and their significance. He seemed skeptical of OP’s devotion to anime, insinuating that she got her tattoos for her boyfriend. Defending her love for Naruto, OP showed him her other anime tattoos, including the leaf village symbol and Gaara of the sands gourd.

Unpleasant Confrontation

OP didn’t take kindly to the employee’s underhanded attempts at challenging her knowledge. She told him she wouldn’t have invested a significant amount in tattoos for an anime she didn’t fully appreciate. However, the employee audaciously suggested that she, as a girl, could never truly comprehend the story and depth of Naruto.

The Retort

OP firmly told the employee she didn’t require his services and asked him to return to the front desk. In response, he insultingly called her a “rude wannabe b****” before disappearing into the back of the store. OP, determined not to let the encounter ruin her day, continued with her shopping.

A Public Review

Later, OP left an honest review of her experience, warning other feminine-presenting individuals about the store’s potentially problematic employee. She recounted her experience, expressing her disappointment in the employee’s disrespectful attitude.

The Owner’s Plea

The owner of the store responded to OP’s review, requesting an email conversation. He asked her to take down her review as it was causing a drop in his sales revenue due to other complaints about the same employee. However, OP was undeterred by his request.

Standing Her Ground

OP refused to take down her review, suggesting the owner should reconsider his hiring practices to avoid hiring misogynistic employees. She remained firm, even though the owner claimed that the employee was causing him financial troubles. Her commitment to revealing the truth about her experience was unwavering.

Mixed Opinions

OP’s friends offered their perspectives, suggesting that she might be overreacting. However, OP stood by her actions, maintaining that it was important to hold the store accountable.

The Unveiling

In an unexpected twist, OP discovered that the rude employee was, in fact, the owner’s son. This made the situation even more complicated, as it wasn’t just a matter of poor hiring practices but also familial bias. The owner was not only protecting his business but his family’s reputation.

The Boyfriend’s Stance

Upon learning about the incident, OP’s boyfriend decided to return the gift he had bought from the store. He stood by OP’s side, reinforcing her stance against the store and its employee.

The Boycott

OP’s review started to gain traction online, leading to an unofficial boycott of the store. This greatly affected the store’s revenue, leading the owner to reconsider his handling of the situation.

The Apology

The store owner, feeling the pressure of the boycott, publicly apologized to OP for the incident. He assured her and the rest of the online community that he would address the issue with his son, promising a change in his store’s conduct. However, the sincerity of his apology was put into question, given his initial reaction to the incident.
