Most of us are used to policies like “You break it, you buy it” or “No shirt, no shoes, no service” when we enter certain retail establishments. But the “No picture without purchase” policy at Rasheeda Frost’s clothing store Pressed led to her mother and two customers cussing each other out over the weekend.
Things went from 0 to 100 quite quickly when Rasheeda’s mom Shirleen informed two women who traveled to the store from Austin Texas that they could not take any pictures without buying something. Ms. Shirleen told the ladies rather nicely, “There’s no videos and no pictures without purchase…that’s Rasheeda’s idea now, not mine.”
When one of the ladies told Shirleen “that’s the rudest sh-t ever” and made an all too familiar comment about why Black businesses can’t get ahead, Rasheeda’s mom told the women what’s rude is “Black folks coming in here b-tching about how other Black folks do.” And then it was all downhill from there.
After one of the women told Rasheeda’s mom she’s just like the “b-tch” from TV, the would-be customers got to see Shirleen’s bad side up close and personal. And while most people agree the customers were dead wrong for fighting the policy that’s clearly posted on the store’s wall behind the cash register, after a series of “b-tches” and “f-ck yous” went flying in both directions, others said Rasheeda’s mom was also wrong for the unprofessional manner in which she handled the situation. Especially since there were other customers in the store, including children.
