‘What Would You Do?’: Grocery Clerk With Special Needs

A hard-working supermarket clerk is bagging groceries at the end of the express checkout lane. He’s doing a good job, but an impatient customer checks her watch and starts to criticize.
“What Would You Do?” gets reactions to verbal abuse of clerk with special needs.
“Hurry up,” the customer harps. “I don’t have all day.”
Rude customers are nothing new, especially in a grocery store located on a busy street in New York. What makes this scenario so objectionable is that the person bagging groceries has Down syndrome, and the customer starts to use indefensible language.
“Can you not understand me?” she yells, “You’re absolutely retarded!”
Would you stand up and say something if you witnessed this cruelty?
