Dear O’Reilly Auto Parts Staff:
I am very sorry that I had the audacity to walk into your store and attempt to purchase car cleaning products this evening. I was not aware of your store’s policy requiring all female customers to be accompanied by an adult male.
I appreciate your attempt to handle the situation diplomatically — rather than embarrass me by coming out and explaining that I was not supposed to be in the store without my husband, you simply refused to wait on me, speak to me, or even make eye contact with me the entire time I was there. Especially diplomatic was the way you looked past me to strike up largely pointless conversations with all the men who came into the building, even after I got in line to buy something I needed.
I apologize for attempting to do business with you. It was an honest mistake, and I certainly will not let it happen again.
P.S.: Your gearshift-knob selection righteously sucks.
