Letter: ‘I felt humiliated’

Published on August 21, 2018 4:37PM

To the Editor:

Regarding an incident at the pool, I gave (an employee) my money, and she counted my money and said, “You’re short 5 cents.”

Then (another) came up and counted my money again and said, “You need 5 cents.” Then he told me, “Go scavenge the parking lot for a nickel.”

I went and looked for a nickel, but I didn’t find one. So my friend called her dad, and he came in and gave me 5 cents. Then I gave it to (the employee) and she said thank you.

I felt humiliated when I had to go look for a nickel in a parking lot and ask my friend to call her dad to give me money.

I didn’t do anything to deserve to be treated like that. (The employee) knows me.
