In the first incident, the manager apologized and claimed that they comply with all state laws. How convenient, considering that there aren't any. . There's an effort underway to change that. But until then, what is the best way to respond to someone who tells me to cover up, go to the bathroom, leave the premises, etc?
Oh, and by "best," I mean as positive and productive response as possible....but still firm. I'm afraid that while extremely tempting, any snarky responses or middle-finger extensions won't fit that bill! . I probably won't be faced with this awful scenario again, but does anyone have any ideas in case I am?
