In the following video a culture-enricher in Sweden demands the right not to interact with female shop assistants during his commercial transactions.
I may be imagining it, but I swear I can detect an Apu-like Subcontinent accent in this irate customer’s Swedish.
Many thanks to Kronans Martell (Ullis News) for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. Note: this video is audio-only, and simply has still photos of the commercial area where the exchange took place.
|00:00||I am the one who decides whether I talk to girls or not!|
|00:03||If you have rules against this, bring your documents and prove it to me.|
|00:07||Bring evidence which shows that I can’t [decide not to talk to girls].|
|00:11||You can’t behave like this! —I absolutely CAN behave like this.|
|00:14||We have the right to reject him as a customer.|
|00:17||This is how it’s done around here. Both girls and boys work here.|
|00:21||Would you do the same in ICA stores [major retail food chain] if girls worked at the checkout?|
|00:26||It is up to them, but I don’t talk to girls.|
|00:31||Okay, then it’s up to you.|
|00:34||But I still want to shop here! You are disrespectful|
|00:37||towards my colleagues. You can’t continue doing this.|
|00:40||You can go to another store. If you’re lucky, girls might not work there.|
|00:45||I will bring the police and come back here. —You can’t just talk to my colleague like that…|
|00:50||I say it! I say it one hundred times!|
|00:55||Okay, then I would say no.|
|00:58||Then I’m calling the police here. —Sure, call security.
