Customer Rants About 'Arabs And Democrats' After Hearing Two Employees Speaking Arabic

Ah, the holiday season! A time for joy, a time for warmth, a time for peace on Earth and goodwill toward men, except for those who have the unmitigated temerity to speak another language in a department store! *sings "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire"*

That was the scene, anyway, at a Macy's in the Dallas area during this holiday season. In a video shared to Twitter by user @rickyy_____, a customer was seen having a bit of a meltdown as two employees sold him a purse. What set him off? The women did not have a box available that would fit his purchase, and spoke Arabic to each other while discussing where to direct him to find one. Yuletide cheer at its finest!

The video, in which the man insists the women should speak English and calls everyone challenging him "a bunch of Democrats," quickly went viral.

User @rickyy_____ has since protected his account, but the New York Post has part of the video featured on its site:

A second excerpt has also been posted elsewhere on Twitter:

The incident erupted over the most mundane of issues: the unavailability of a gift box that fits the purse. In the second excerpt, a fellow customer is heard saying, "Ladies, he doesn't have one dollar to buy a gift box!" and "Give him a dollar!" Another customer exclaims, "Oh man, for real?! Is that what the issue is?!" The angry man replies, "No it isn't!" before continuing:

"All you Arabs and all you Democrats! Why don't you go back where you came from!"

Of course, most Democrats come from *checks notes* right here in America, including Dallas, and it's possible to be fluent in a second language even if you were born here, but something tells me fact-checking this guy is probably a fool's errand.

This is, after all, a man who's most heated reaction came when one of his fellow customer's called him a "snowflake." "F--k you," the man erupted.

As you might expect, Twitter was heated about the man's tantrum:


A spokesperson for Macy's told Yahoo Lifestyle:

"We believe our Macy's employees and customers should be treated with dignity, respect and kindness. We aim to create a welcoming environment, and we apologize for what occurred in our store. We are investigating this incident."

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod

Hehe this gave me a good chuckle this morning. Now wish I had a boyfriend so I could do this to them. - MidnightMadness21

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The best birthday present I ever got was from a girl who baked me a cake secretly. So thanks for doing that for him, I know I'd feel great about it. - Levitr0n

Others have found inventive ways to use the meme as well:

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.

Not many people know what it's like to get married that young, but Reese got real about what it was like.
