I am walking alone in the mall and a man (gay to be exact) asked me from where did I get my lipstick. I answered him politely "In the Philippines." And he started talking in tagalog and inviting me to give him two minutes. (Asking me where did I get my lipstick is a part of his marketing skills. I know. 😊) He said he loves Filipino women because her Mom is a Filipina too. Honestly, I am in a hurry, but I still managed to give him some time because I know the feeling if someone ignores you while doing your job (sales). He was really nice, telling me "flattering" things and all (Part of the marketing skills 😊). In the middle of his session, I said "This product must be expensive. I don't think I can afford it. Maybe, you just give me some brochure and I will read it at home." But still, he was really persistent and he say to let him finish. So I waited, and let him finished. At the end, I did not buy (Because I don't have money 😅) To my surprised, he is really pushing me to buy, asking me to use my credit card. I explained to him that I don't have money, I don't have credit card neither and I said that I will just come back on another day if I would have money. And he was a bit upset (mad should I say), saying "So why did you sit and come inside? Why are you in the mall if you don't have money?!" I answered him "You voluntarily invited me, and asking about my lipstick and I am here being so nice to you and I don't want to be snob thats why I listened to you so you would not be feel neglected" He answered back (ofcourse) "You are kuripot! You are so CHEAP! You have a good brand of bag but still you are CHEAP! Don't come back here anymore, CHEAP!" I was so shocked. And just said "I'm sorry for being so cheap."
As I walked out, I wanted to come back to him and defend myself. But I did not. .
I am mad on what he said. Really.
I sit for awhile and I was about to cry because I felt a bit insulted.
I've realized how some people judge other people by merely looking to "what brand" that they have in their clothes, bag, jewelries, etc.
The sad part is, other people will make you feel miserable just because you said you don't have money. 😔
