Notice the head covering. Not a hajib, not even a scarf or wrap. It is a floor throw. If she were devout Muslim the arms would be covered. Her ploy? She stood in line, demanding a senior discount but refused to uncover her face.

She starts yelling about discrimination and making a scene. After like 5 minutes I’d had enough. I told her and I quote, “why don’t you stop with all the screaming. I was walking behind you while we were headed here and by your conversation, you are not Muslim nor are you a senior. If you stop this nonsense I’ll buy your damn sandwich.” to which she only shook her carpet covered head in abrupt silence.

The clerk charged me for her sandwich and gave me mine free along with a very grateful smile. Not to be outdone she sat an ate the sandwich under the throw getting oil and mayonnaise all over it…
