What would you do?

I was in the supermarket with my neighbour the other day. They have a disability and I noticed two of the staff behind one of the counters making derogatory comments about her and laughing to themselves. My neighbour didn't notice because she was busy with other things but I did and it's really bothering me now. Should I complain to the store manager on their behalf because I don't want it to happen again and there is no point talking to the members of staff themselves as I don't imagine much filters down with those two. The worst thing is they were both in their forties so old enough to conduct themselves with at least some degree of decency. What would you do?

Well I have a temper and probably would have loudly pointed out their own faults, but if it is really bothering you, call and complain to the manager, make it a point to tell them that this behavior makes you uncomfortable in their store and that another incident would cause you and your friends to shop else where. It is amazing how fast peoples behaviour changes when faced with fewer customers.

I would have looked at their name tags and then as soon as I wasn't with my friend I would have called their store manager, unless your friend wouldn't mind a fuss, then I would have found the store manager right away. I don't put up with that nonsense and would have made it clear that if I saw anything like that at that store again I would take my business elsewhere.
