Mt. Pleasant Woman Denied Service at Whole Foods For Not Wearing Yoga Pants

A Mount Pleasant woman was asked to leave Whole Foods yesterday after violating the store’s strict Mandatory Yoga Pants dress code for females. Denied customer Amanda Mayo was escorted out by management after frightening other customers with her jean shorts.

Amanda said she didn’t intentionally violate the dress code. “I was running errands and needed to pick up some quinoa,” she said. “I just ran in and completely forgot I had jean shorts on. That’s when the manager quickly approached and shielded me with a blanket, saying I had to leave or they were going to call the cops.”

Whole Foods Manager Diana Callan said it was an unfortunate situation, but it was handled properly. “We don’t enjoy having to do things like that, but we need to when disobedient customers put us in that position. We have a reputation to protect at Whole Foods. If we allowed everyone to wear jorts in our store, we’d turn into Food Lion.”

Whole Foods customer Christine Short described the chaotic scene. “I had just finished a tiring morning of going to Barre class and was shopping for some gluten-free gnocchi’s when I saw this plain-looking woman in shorts enter the store. It was terrifying. I hid behind the fine cheeses until management took care of the situation.”

Whole Foods has committed to donating 1,000 pairs of yoga pants to underprivileged woman over the next year. They hope create a whole new generation of stay-at-home moms who overpay for groceries.

  1. Can’t believe that a grocery store can tell you how to dress . Dress Code , how about a price code ? Groceries are food and you cannot enforce a dress code unless you are a private store where every member has to sign in before they can start shopping.

    • Yes! Let’s boycott Whole Foods! *dies laughing*

      • JORTS are the American way! I was just in Daytona for the Chiwawa Cinco de mayo fest, and I saw JORTS everywhere! All the ladies were sporting JORTS! When did Mt. P – Whole Foods become ‘inane riean?’ Furthermore, how can the 1% support Trump without wearing JORTS? Beauty pageant’s aside, I’ve seen his rallies on FOX! Maybe this is causing the ‘establishment divide’ they all speak of.

    • Bless your heart, Bruce

      Ahahaha. You ever hear of a thing called satire?

    • John Griswold | August 28, 2016 at 10:01 am |

      Bruce, I love how all of these idiots are calling YOU the simpleton. Oh, what irony to find people missing satire on a satirical web site.

  2. Dear Bruce. Please look up “faux” in the dictionary.

  3. Please note that “faux” means fake, as in not real. So it’s “fake/made up country news.” It’s meant to be funny, like the Colbert Report or Daily Show. This didn’t actually happen. I’d love to see SNL play this out sometime hahahaha

    Now I wanna go to WF and get kombucha. And maybe a cookie from the bakery.

  4. I didn’t know they carried gluten-free gnocchi. I’ll try to remember to pick up some yoga pants this weekend.

    Bruce…you’re bringing us all down.

    Unbelievable!!!!! In today’s day they have to be kidding!!!! I love Charleston but this is crazy!!!!

    It was terrifying. I was busy squeezing mangos in the organic produce kiosk when I saw the whole terrifying incident play out. It was surreal. I can’t imagine how anyone would think it would be ok to be seen in public like that let alone in Whole Foods. And the strange thing was, she pranced in as if she totally didn’t care. Shocking! Mount Pleasant has to really nip this type of criminal activity in the bud before it blooms to horrifying epic proportions. I don’t think I will ever be able to unsee that woman. I had to call my therapist from behind the seedless naval orange display (which filled the sterile air with a plethora of spring citrus scents) as I was frozen in fear. Thankfully, she takes my calls immediately and she was able to talk me off the edge. My day, however, was ruined and I was unable to make my wine stroll on the beach that evening. People like that woman have no idea of the repercussions of their actions! Disgusting. Was she raised by wolves?

  8. Yes, we ARE this crazy in Charleston. You definitely do NOT want to move here.

    Bruce is a prime example of looking at the headline and posting without even reading the article. There are boat loads of these folks that opine without the “facts”. Pitiful as well as laughable.

  10. Neill Martin | May 12, 2016 at 12:00 pm |

    Almost as shocking. I witnessed a “woman,”definitely a “nottie” entering Earth Fair in capri’s!!! I just chalked it up to being in JI. Disgusting none the less! Management seemed to tolerate such “fashion.” Bye Bye EF!!!

  11. I think Bruce has a good point. Whole Foods is messed up they think they can discriminate against people who wear jorts. The SPLC should be all over this. This is a bigger deal than the “faux” controversy over their overpriced GMO food.

  12. I hope the outraged comments are tongue- in-cheek 🙂

  13. hilarious and so true! thanks for the laughs 🙂

  14. Why do people make a big deal out of something like that? It makes me feel like we’re living in the Middle East countries!

  15. OK. Now I see. It’s a FAUXCOUNTRY NEWS 🙂 . Well, I’m not the local and did not know such thing as FAUX…NEWS. I was a fool! 🙁

  16. Not only are yoga pants required but you go to the head of the line if you are sporting a camel toe.

  17. Big Momma | May 12, 2016 at 2:39 pm |

    This is an attempt at shaming fat women who don’t fit into yoga pants, or worse, who force themselves into yoga pants despite the obvious risks to their health (this could cut off circulation). And I’ll tell you why they do this. There is a malicious rumor that weight-challenged individuals eat too many free samples! Can you believe it? Well, I’ll tell you something, Mr. Walter E. Robb IV, CEO of Whole Foods, you wouldn’t be in business if it were not for us Big Girls! Who do you think buys your creamy French cheeses, Belgian chocolates, buttery pastries, and multiple carts full of food? Your skinny-Minnies would limit themselves to lettuce and spring water if they did not see us filling our plates to overflowing at the buffet and thereby showing just how delectable your store can make casseroles with lemon grass and kumquats. Who is it, Mr. Robb, that really adds to your bottom line as we add to our own bottoms? It’s not the yoga pants wearers, most of whom (in case you didn’t know it) are posers and do not even attend yoga classes, because there are none offered in Mt. Pleasant!
    This Is moreover discriminatory: sexist, fat-ist and age-ist. — No need to remind us we die early from coronary disease, and that you disapprove; it’s implicit in your advertising to a young healthy clientele. — and I am going to report you to Oprah!! See how you like them apples! … Hm, that makes me hungry….

  18. As she should. What in God’s name was she thinking?

  19. Mary Ann Gunter | May 12, 2016 at 3:03 pm |

    Ok, I’ve got to say it. Are they not worried about too many camel toes?

  20. Some of the responses are as ridiculous as the situation would be if it were REAL. I suppose they’re too busy supporting Trump to read all the two-syllable words.

    • Or maybe they’re too busy blindly following the criminal Hillary to read all the two-syllable words.

    OMG, this might be Fauxnews but NOT with this gem! This is 100% spot on. If you want a text book definition of pretentiousness, pompous, arrogant and smug, hit the Mount Pleasant Whole Foods any given day. This article had me rolling. It is spot on 100% truth!

  22. Thomas Hammond | May 12, 2016 at 6:59 pm |

    Well that’s nothing! I was told to leave Longhorn Steakhouse in Jax Beach because I was not wearing white socks with my sandals! What is the world coming to?

  23. I just pop in to read the comments from people who think that the stories are real.? I’ve got plenty of yoga pants that I can donate to you poor, under privileged souls, that venture East of the Cooper not properly attired. A sense of humor and the ability to understand satire…you’ll have to find that on your own.

    Naval oranges? Excellent. You mean the oranges I can get from the PX, or right off the flight deck of the USS Theodore Roosevelt?

  25. V Maguire | May 12, 2016 at 10:23 pm |

    Great spoof! Too hilarious.

  26. You guys are ridiculous, specially the lady who had go call therapist. You’re ruined day, stemmed deeper than a lady wearing shorts. You have mental issues, some VERY serious ones. This is America not the Mideast. Perhaps you people supporting this should move there. Get a life loosen up, that stick up your b*tt’s is the reason you ‘yoga pants wearing’ soccer mom’s hubby are out always cheating. Who wants to sleep with prude mental trains wrecks. 🙂 that stuff doesn’t happen in FL. Thanks gawd??

  27. This is priceless. First I am loving all the comments. Those of you who know what faux means your replys are funny and spot on. For those of you who have no clue what so ever what faux means your comments are just as funny. I love watching people huff and puff up a rude response and then sit back as they realize they have their foot in their mouths. I’m from Mt. Pleasant and this little spoof is actually spot on. Lol loved it. I now live near Brentwood TN. Here it is the same but none of the women have names, they just all wallk around saying ” Do you know who my husband is?” Learn to laugh people. Life is too short for drama all the time.

    I scored my first soccer mom at Whole Foods. Thanks WF!

  29. And the winner of best post of the day goes to… Jerry M.

    “Not only are yoga pants required but you go to the head of the line if you are sporting a camel toe.”

    You won absolutely nothing, but the comment was bloody brilliant, and spot on.

  30. I heard a rumor they were renaming Mt. Pleasant, “Milfville.”

  31. I’m tired of seeing all those women in Yoga pants. WF is too expensive anyway so I’m done with it. Hello, Trader Joes.

    I read an article that BBA (the Body Building Assoc) raised a fuss over calling them yoga pants. “Why does yoga get all the attention. We’re trying to raise awareness that plenty of people that wear them that don’t do yoga. We think they should be called “fitness attire” so that no one gets shamed or offended.” – Meet Heade, Pres of BBA.

  33. Agreed! MP has no room for these mental midgets who think they can defame the character of MY town by making these poor fashion choices. Why just last week, I ducked into WF to pick up some GMO-free, non dairy, vegan, free range, Kim-che tofu for our “Daddy’s and Douchebags” bruncheon and this very manager noticed my black Yorts and personally invited me to the front of the line! Yesirree, even mammeltoes get attention here!

  34. Oh my gravy, did anyone read the first few lines of the article?!?!?!?! FAUX folks, would be your key before making yourself look ignorant.????

  35. I came here for the article but stayed for the comments!

  36. If a woman has a right to display her camel toe in public at the Whole Foods, do I get taken to the front of the line for showing off my moose knuckle? I should, right? Otherwise….genital hoof discrimination.

  37. R.T. Shepherd | May 17, 2016 at 5:06 pm |

    They have some fetching milbs (mothers I’d like to befriend) roaming about Earth Fare on Folly Road, and I’m past my prime: the eyes still work, though.

  38. This is so stupid, 90%of people shouldn’t wear yoga pants, most people are disgusting in them. Owner should be arrested, sounds like a pervert !

  39. WF is not really that bad. I wore my camo cut offs there the other day for lunch. And I could tell that the chicks there were impressed with my black Harley t shirt with flamin sculls on it. I like HF. It’s the only grocery store where you can get lunch and dessert and not pay a dime. The got free food everywhere !
    As soon as you walk in the store there’s free fruit. And free pnut butter, and a ton of free cheese. I just stand there and eat till it’s all gone and then move on to the next course. Just today is there was this hot Whole Food employee gal with sort of a mop hair do an fishing tackle stuck in her nose, eyebrows and ears. Had a quarter inch lag bolt in her tung flirting with me while I wollfed down a whole plate of fancy cheese. I knew she wanted me. Gave her a wink and she spun around and sasheid into the back room. I’m going back at closing time and taking her home to the double wide. So I say WF is AOK. A little pricey if you buy somethin but who the hell could afford that stuff. I’m talking my grandma there for her 90th birthday. We’ll take lawn chairs and camp out by the fancy cheeses. Grandma could stand to be blocked up for a change.

  40. Hey Whole Foods! Did you forget that YOU are there for the customer and NOT the other way ’round? No customers no business! Maybe if we boycott your store you will thin about it!
    I have never been in Whole Foods and NOW I shall continue to stay away and encourage anyone else I can. What arrogance!!

  41. If Bruce is a stranger to satire. I’ve heard dumber things from Trumps mouth. Scary eh

  42. Does that include men too! mmmm LOL

  43. T. Dillon….. you really think this is a real story? Seriously? How nieve are you anyway?

  44. Im afraid to find out what a moose knuckle is…….lol. love it!

  45. David Lloyd | August 28, 2016 at 8:55 pm |

    Humour, eh! The haves and the have-nots. Don’t you just love these irreverent satirical humorous sites.

    So where’s Mount Pleasant. Canada? Probably the Isle of Man?

  46. Camel toes should never been seen, unless the camel toenails are painted. Standards people! Standards!
