We have to ask ‘Would you like anything else?’ at the end of a sale…

New submission from Emma

I work in a shop. Recently, the staff have been told to ask ‘would you like anything else?’ at the end of sales transactions. I’ve begun doing this and recently two men have said ‘I would..*meaningful look*..but I can’t have it’. This made me really uncomfortable. I couldn’t walk away because I was working and I didn’t know how to respond. One time I actually did respond without thinking. I said, ‘you couldn’t afford it’, which in retrospect wasn’t great as it just objectified me further! The worst part is these men are regular customers so I’m likely to be seeing them again.
