Pep Boys Complaint - Bigotry In Ri Pep Boys
This morning, 9/29/11, I was shopping at PEP BOYS store: 0196, located in 375 Quaker Lane, West Warwick, RI 02893. It was about 9:30am. I was walking towards the back to the oil section. Cashier: 306506 was complaining out loud that because she wasn't undocumented or minority she could not go to college. I was going to let it go until she said specifically because she was not 'Guatemalen or black and pregnant' she could not get into college. I was in the back of the store, she was in the front. She was loud! Non of the other employees disagreed, instead she was having a conversation. I paid for my items, went to my car and returned to talk to the manager. I told him I was latino born in Brooklyn, NY. I can also pass as light skin African American and was highly insulted because many of us shop at PEP BOYS. He apologized. I will never go back to another PEP BOYS!
