Did you ever get insulted by a record store employee for your taste?

I used to sell porn magazines at W.H Smith years ago without batting an eyelid and all the old buggers used to wait on me starting because I was the only male that worked the tills at any point in the week (the same happened with gay magazines)

Haha, I love this story!

Just today I put on my best neutral face when someone was buying some super skimpy thongs and bras.

That reminds me when I had bought quite, er, sexy underwear and I was about to leave the store and the detection thingie at the exit went off and a cool bloke had to check whether the, er, price tag (?) was still on the underwear. He looked quite embarrassed.
 
Last time I bought 'sexy' underwear the woman at the counter started telling me about how early she hit puberty! I was just standing there trying not to take it and run.
 
I was today. Not really a big deal, but it still made me feel bad. I called a store to make sure they had the CD/DVD copy of Aphrodite (they were the only store in my area that had it and it was a bit of a drive, It would have been such a waste of gas).

The girl on the phone asked for the SKU which I gave and when she saw what the item was she nastily sniggered at me. She then tried recover, but it was clear that she couldn't believe I wanted Kylie's album.

When I got to the store, there was a guy at guest services (where the album was being held for me) and I thought "Shit, here we go." As it turns out, when he grabbed the cd and saw what it was, he said "Kylie Minogue? I didn't know she had a new cd, cool."

I know I shouldn't care, but it still stung me a bit.
