What is a hipster, and why did hipsterism provoke this encounter?

We Prefer Hipsters Over Hellcats
Retail | Toronto, ON, Canada | Physical

(A customer comes over to the small cosmetic service station that I am posted at. All the while, she’s talking on her phone and sounds quite upset.)

Me: “Hello, ma’am. What can I do for you today?”

Customer: *to phone* “Sorry, got go.” *hangs up*

Me: “Ma’am—”

Customer: “SHUT UP YOU, D*** HIPSTER!”

(Note: I’m wearing prescription Ray Bans and have an eyebrow piercing.)

Me: “Uhm—”

Customer: “You heard me the first time! Not another word! You probably don’t even need those glasses!”

(Without warning, the customer rips the glasses from my face. She throws them on the ground, shattering the lenses.)

Me: “Oh my God!”

Customer: “Look! You are fine!”

(My coworker comes over to see what all the commotion is about.)

Coworker: “What is going on?”

Customer: “This b**** was trying to look like a hipster!”

Coworker: “Ma’am, she actually needed those to see. Now get out before I call security!”

Customer: “F*** you! F***ing hipsters taking over!”

(Enraged, the customer grabs a makeup display, tips it over, and starts throwing around items from a nearby shelf. Security rushes over and takes her out of the store while she screams profanities. The total damage cost is over $200 worth of products, not including my glasses.)

1. This is someone who was gonna blow over something. Anything.

Someone with 16 items in 15-or-less-items line, children selling band candy, a low-flying traffic copter. She's walking, seething anger, looking for a place to land.

2. She should have been looking to get

her prescription refilled instead of cosmetics.

3. Hopefully she'll get some help....

... but thanks to Ronald Reagan she probably won't.

4. Sadly, we can't blame this one on Mr. Raygun

it looks like it happened in Toronto.
