Target Complaint - Clerk's Bad Behavior
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- Last evening, I was the victim of blatant racism, sexism or both at the Target store in midtown Miami. I waited patiently while the clerk took care of the customer that was in line in front of me. When it was my turn, the clerk asked the customer behind me in the line what he needed and served him first before assisting me in making my purchase. He did not acknowledge that I was at the head of the line before he made me wait while he helped the other customer. I did not protest because the other customer did not ask for special consideration and had a small child with him, who I felt did not need to be exposed to conflict. By the way, I am white, and realize that I was a minority shopper in the store.
I treated the clerk respectfully and believe that I deserved the same treatment. Perhaps Target should look at "diversity" in all of their stores.
