have offered words of support for a bullied supermarket worker with Asperger's.
This week, thousands of strangers
Chris Tuttle, 28, has been working at the Wegmans supermarket in Clay, New York, for seven years.
He has Asperger's syndrome.
On Saturday night, Tuttle, usually assigned maintenance duties, was asked to help out at the register. One customer was not happy with Tuttle's performance — he was checking her out too slow, she claimed — and ended up rattling the man with her loud complaints.
Tuttle's sister, Jamie Tuttle-Virkler, shared the story on Facebook:
"[Yesterday] at Wegmans, a customer yelled at him and then in the middle of her transaction, left to complain loudly to a manager, came back to his line and he was so shaken, dropped a candle she bought on the ground and it shattered. Luckily the manager took him off register immediately because clearly he was upset," she wrote, adding that the customer "yelled at him, the manager and anyone else who would listen."Read More »from Humiliated supermarket worker with Asperger’s syndrome finds support on Facebook
