Thank you...

Thank you for all your kind comments. I am back on my feet, well sort of and taking antiobiotics. Now I need to craft all hours to be ready for this demo on Saturday.

I went to my local one stop shop here in the UK. I walked it there as I live locally, to be refused a lottery ticket. The lady behind the counter, her name was Laney, then she said her name was Elaine later, said I was buying a ticket for my brother. I said I do not know what you are talking about. I am 27, this is my money and I am buying a lottery ticket for myself. She said yes, you do know what I am talking about your mother just came in bought a lottery ticket, then your brother tried, did not have any Id. Then, your mother tried to buy a ticket. I said, just because I am asian, doesnt mean I know every Asian person in the world and you would not make an assumption about a white person. I said i wanted to speak to a manager, she said she was the manager. Well Managers in a store dont dress like up normal staff, and have a manager label - which she did not have. She was rude and very racist. I said I will come tomorrow, when your manager is in. She said she would go and get the details. She came back 5 minutes later. I checked online and she gave me the wrong number for the store and the wrong number for Customer Services. Then she was calling me bab, trying to be my friend. Well, Laney if you were so confident in your decision making why did you spend so long in the back in the hope I would go away.

I found the whole experience a racist one. I found her to be rude. I emailed Customer Services, so head office are aware. And i will go back to the store and speak to the manager Gill Robinson, which I doubt the name evern exists like the telephone number she gave me. .
