In the supermarket this afternoon, waiting to pay, unfortunately the card machine was not working, a woman who i can only describe as Jabba the Huts female twin huffs loudly and says "Fuck this, the stupid fucking Ginger is taking too long" , I can't decide if I am annoyed at her for referring to me this way, or whether I am pleased I am still passable as a red head.

She wasn't very nice. But you don't sound so nice either.

Six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Did you really need to describe someone that way?

welshpixie Wed 31-Aug-16 18:53:46

I said nothing to her, just turned and smiled sweetly, then watched her reaction

SoleBizzz Wed 31-Aug-16 18:54:04

She sounds vile.

a woman who i can only describe as Jabba the Huts female twin

hmm

You sound lovely.

Six of one? hmm Woman swears at OP and insults her. OP says nothing but has a moan on here.

You kind of lost the moral high ground in your post OP. Would you have been less offended if she's looked like a supermodel?

If you need to post to AIBU to find out whether it's offensive for someone to call you a "stupid fucking ginger", I'm surprised you found your way to the supermarket in the first place.

You sound lovely!

Hutt's.

The possessive apostrophe. The twin belongs to Jabba the Hutt. Not one T either, but two.

Hope that helps. A link for you if not.

Oh bloody hell, everyone's up their own arses and is sooo perfect and tolerant to everyone who insult's them not! She is not exactly saying it to the woman, don't you ever mutter things under your breath if somebody gets on your tits? I sympathise op, let it go.

JenLindleyShitMom Wed 31-Aug-16 19:12:06

grin doreen

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Wed 31-Aug-16 19:12:22

She was being a twat

So were you with your PA smiling and the way you described her.

HTH.

BuggerLumpsAnnoyed Wed 31-Aug-16 19:12:58

Hmm MN is the only place I've ran into this holier than thou attitude. Everyone's assuming that op declaring this woman fat and ugly, when it could just be the lady mirrored jabbas grumpy personality.

BuggerLumpsAnnoyed Wed 31-Aug-16 19:14:19

And the grammar police, to add to MN twat bingo.

Aeroflotgirl Wed 31-Aug-16 19:15:22

Exactly, hate hate hate the hollier than thou attitude. Op did well to smile back and ignore her, she had the upper hand, what would you have liked her to do, walk up to her and slap her!

missyB1 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:17:22

I'm presuming OP's thoughts about Jabba the Hutt were not spoken out loud - unlike the woman's thoughts about redheads, therfore not really six of one territory. We all think things but some of us manage to keep the thoughts in our heads, the ginger hater needs to learn to do that.

grin yeah yeah.

I feel sorry for your children.

we are playing Mumsnet bingo, aren't we?

CalmYaTits Wed 31-Aug-16 19:32:12

Chucks OP a goat

And a biscuit

TheNaze73 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:36:37

YANBU, her behaviour was out of order

ilovesooty Wed 31-Aug-16 19:38:58

If the OP were that offended she could have said something at the time. She'd have been perfectly justified. But no, she thought smiling sweetly and posting derogatory stuff on here was the way to go...
