    Redditor u/teacherspet5859438e asked the 'Women of Reddit' to share their most bizarre experience being basically ignored when it came to customer service. There were far too many responses to fit them all, but I managed to filter through them and find the ones that really made me go "Darn you toxic masculinity!" Prepare to feel a little fire igniting inside you as well.

    Font - autumnrenarde 1 month ago Wasn't my husband, not even my boyfriend, but a guy friend I happened to have round when a joiner came to fix something in MY home. I welcomed the joiner in, started talking to him about the issue, then he saw my friend and did a 180° to talk to him. He literally turned his back on me while I was mid-sentence. In MY home. 1.2k Reply Share

    How bizarre is this? It's not even her husband, yet the worker feels that the only way to fully explain what he is doing, there needs to be a man there. Honestly, he has a point, women are sooo emotional. If he said two words she would probably cry her heart out.

    Font - Blondeinsideandout 1 month ago My scenario doesn't quite fit the bill but I'm a female business owner with a male business partner. I've had a few customers born in the dark ages and reps that ask to "speak to my boss" but the worst was a guy who snapped his fingers and told me to "put the kettle on girly". Needless to say he didn't get his cuppa and he certainly didn't get the discount he asked for.

    Font - leafypaq 1 month ago & S I took my colleague out to lunch. He wasn't a subordinate he was at the same level, however I was given a company card and he wasn't, due to the nature of our jobs. When the bill came around, the waitress gave it to him because she assumed he would be paying. He graciously grabbed the bill and gave it to me and said "she's the boss". Smart move: made me feel validated, and he got a free lunch. 3.3k Reply Give Award Share Report Save

    Font - Fire-Kissed 1 month ago Husband and I took my daughter to urgent care for stitches. Husband is holding the kid, and I check her in at the front desk iPad. Front desk man looks to my husband and asks for the insurance card.... we're on my insurance so I hand him the card. Next he tells my husband the copay, looking at him, behind me, when I'm the one standing at the damn desk. I pull out my card with my name on it, and pay. Asshole. 283 Reply Give Award Share Report Save

    Product - Dakizo 1 month ago It's not so much a particular story but when I was shopping for a car several years ago the salesmen at every dealership kept talking to my husband instead of me even though I was the one who contacted the dealerships and made sure to introduce myself first. My husband got sick of it and started telling them "Don't talk to me, it's not my car. Talk to her." I wound up buying from a saleswoman who treated us equally until she pretty quickly figured out my husband was

    Font - messicanamerican 1 month ago & 2 O & 18 More This August I bought a new truck and took my boyfriend with. He is white and I am mexican, we arrived at the dealership and I asked about the explorer they had front and center. Salesman comes over and is asking a bunch of questions to my bf. He told him its for me. I was ignored for the entire conversation. I got up and started looking at the truck. A Hispanic Salesman comes and asks me if I need help. I was out of there within 1.5 hours keys

    Rectangle - celesteb4 1 month ago Was invited to a weekend away with a supplier to launch their new range. My husband went with and on the 'order day' the Financial Manager of the supplier came up to my husband and asked him what he thinks about the new range and what he is considering to buy. My husband replied very dryly that he is only the plus 1 and that he must speak to me seeing that I am the one with the chequebook. 14.0k + Reply Give Award Share Report Save

    Mammal - CybermanCat 1 month ago · edited 1 month ago When I was buying my house, I took my boyfriend with me to the viewing and realtor was talking mostly to him and even ended up calling him with bids on a house. Yes, the house I purchased all on my own and is mine. I don't take myself too seriously and I'm not easy to upset or embarrass, so I didn't really care, I was riding high on a wave of winning a bidding war.

    Font - flagrantgrouch 1 month ago 2 3 2 E & 2 More I have a chronic pain disease that runs in the family. I noticed that my father and male relatives had no problems securing pain meds, but that my doctors would never give me any, despite clearly indicating how much pain I was in. So I started bringing either my father or my husband to my medical appointments (which is hugely intrusive), would have them repeat how much pain I was in, and low and behold suddenly I get pain medication. 12.9k Reply

    Font - DundieAwardWinner525 1 month ago A S When I had my appendix taken out, I asked my doctor when sex would be OK again. He turned to my husband and said whenever you feel ready, you can begin sexual relations again. I don't know if he was uncomfortable talking to me about it, or was deferring to what my husband would prefer. Either way, it was strange. 19.5k Reply Give Award Share Report Save

    Font - clittle24 1 month ago I have issues constantly when going out to eat with my boyfriend. They always put the bill down directly in front of him no matter what. Even when I reach across the table to grab it and put my card in, they almost always put the check back down in front of him after swiping the card. They will often turn to him and thank him or tell him to have a great evening or which copy to sign. It's infuriating. 3.5k Reply Give Award Share Report Save

    Font - CH9791 1 month ago S 2 Trying to collect a parcel from the post office that was addressed to both me and my husband. Was told that my husband had to come to collect it. I asked whether they meant both of us had to be there and the response was no just him. Needless to say I was not happy and after a while arguing they gave me the parcel. 23.8k Reply Give Award Share Report Save
