TIFU by responding to a racist customer in a not so professional way

I (17m) work at an entertainment center. It’s a combined movie theater, arcade, restaurant, and bowling center and I’m the bowling attendant. Have to be there by 8 am. I was the only one looking after all 22 lanes because my coworker called in. For whatever reason, people fucking bowl in the morning. This family came in an hour ago. A middle aged man and his three small children. I greeted all of them and he just stared at me blankly. So I just took them to their bowling lane (Have to do this because of covid)

I got their balls for them (Again have to do this because of covid) The man got mad at me for grabbing their balls for them. I told him that I have to because we can’t allow customers to touch over our stuff due to the pandemic. He got mad and threw the ball down near my feet. I moved out of the way luckily. That was plain evil and he could have crushed my toes. I had to look away for a second because I have a short temper, literally the only thing that kept me from throwing it back at him is the fact that I absolutely can not get fired right now. Holiday season is here and I need money for gifts. He went “Well if put your hands all over this shit how is that safe? Let us get our own damn balls and the ones that we touch but don’t get just fucking wipe it down.”

I explained to him that again, I can NOT do that and that I don’t make the rules. He gets in my face and goes “Look I know with those tiny eyes your vision is blurry but it doesn’t take good eyes to see that I’m clearly pissed off.” (I am Asian and this a white man.) I told him he needs to get out of my face because he’s setting a bad example for his kids. He got outraged and yelled at me for threatening his kids (I did not) and called me a “Ching chong, virus spreading, dog eating, yellow retard” (Sorry for typing that word out, just repeating his words) I responded with “It is too early. I only make $7.50, I’m not getting enough to deal with this shit. You look like you’ve got one foot in the grave so you should really be nicer to people while you’re still alive. I can call you cracker and a white motherfucker all day but I’m not, are you gonna sit down or not? Because I will turn your damn game off.” He got surprised and told his kids he’ll be back.

He came back with one of my managers and told them everything, but twisted my words a little to villanize me even more. My managers have a very strict “The customer is always right” policy so I was written up. They sent me home and cut my hours for the rest of this week. Again I need money for the holidays and now I’m losing a weeks worth of it. I knew I should’ve ignored the dude but I was just really not dealing with it today. Not in the early morning. But oh well. It’s my fuck up, hopefully I’ll be back next week.

TL;DR- I work as a bowling attendant in an entertainment center. Guy got mad because I grabbed his bowling ball for him (customers can’t grab them anymore) He got racist, called me “Ching Chong virus spreading dog eating yellow retard” I got very rude with him, he called the manager, I got sent home and had my hours cut for this week

Edit, 5:03 PM: I appreciate you guys wanting to help out. I did post the name and city of the place but someone told me that I shouldn’t include it because people will call to my job. Also to those of you offering to send me money, thank you so much for that but keep your money!! And I am definitely taking all of the advice I’ve received and will pursue action.

Why do my guy friends seem to fall of the face of the earth the second they get a romantic interest?

This is really starting to take a toll on me as it has happened to all of my guy friends and as well as my brother. Is this normal or is it perhaps something I am doing that is making these people too busy to hang out anymore
