I had an encounter with 2 anti mask customers

at my job today. The company i work for has told us if another customer complains about someone not wearing a mask, we as managers are to offer the non mask person a mask. If they refuse, we have to let it go. They don't want us possibly getting into a violent situation.

So I offer this guy a mask and he looks at me stupidly and says "Nope!" His wife just shakes her head at me as I try to offer her one. I was livid at how they reacted, but I just walked away.

My District Manager comes in about 10 minutes later and asked me how I was doing. I told him I was fed up with these non mask wearing people and told him that he can fire me if he wants, but that I had just texted my store team and told them they are not obligated to treat these idiots nicely. Yes, we have to let them shop, but just scan their groceries quickly and get them out of here. If they ask you where something is, just point in its general direction, etc.

He wasn't very pleased that I had done that, but too bad. I understand they don't want us getting into violent situations but damn i wish they would hire armed security to deal with these idiots. But they won't because businesses are looking out for their bottom line. That's the problem with government leaving it up to businesses to enforce these mandates.

This is in Texas by the way.
