I was on lunch break yesterday and was looking through the Valentines selection. I bent over to take a look at a very cute stuffed bear, when I was slammed in the ass with a cart. It hit me so hard I was knocked to my hands and knees. I hopped up and turned around to find a very miserable looking woman scowling at me.

SC: That should teach you for being in peoples way.
Me: Excuse me?
SC: You work here right? *gestures to my uniform*
Me: Yeah, and you just hit me with your cart.
SC: Isn't there some kind of rule that you people can't shop with the customers?
Me: :headscratch: You can't be serious.
SC: It's busy enough in this store with out all of you shopping to.
Me: Well, you're the one who decided to come into the store even though the parking lot was full.
SC: *Huffs and walks away*

I mean seriously, do these SC's think we are some how not as much as a human being as them because we work in retail?

No one put a gun to her head and forced her to shop there. You had a genuine point. A full parking lot usually signifies that it IS busy.

I just don't believe someone would be so upset by an employee browsing that they'd take a cart and literally ram it into them so hard that they fell over....

Good lord, that woman is overdue for a house to fall on her pretty soon.

People get pissy at associates for eating lunch in the Duncan donuts in front of the store when it's busy too. It is insane. I just think she was in a bad mood and it is easier to take it out on me a stranger who technically can't fight back for fear of loosing thier job.

:eek:

Reirei, please tell me you filed assault charges against this asshat!

It was more annoying than painful, and even if I were hurt, my store doesn't really have the best history of backing associates in that type of thing, so I wouldn't even bother.

Seconded. At the VERY least she should be banned.

Short answer: Yes. They do.

And you know if you had been the one to knock her down with the cart, she probably would have tried to file police charges and get you fired and sue your store for millions...

Doesn't matter. Call the police from home and make a report. The police can ask the store for any videotapes. It is not for your management to make decisions on criminal behavior.

What a miserable bitch! This is why I hide my work clothes with a jacket and take off my badge when I shop on my breaks, other than the fact that angry customers mistake It for a bullseye, it somtimes prevents the "Do you work here?, and "can you help me's". Notice, that I said sometimes.

dayu..er...darn! and reirei works in a pharmacy! What was it that she needed so badly that required a shopping cart on a busy day?? I'll use a shopping cart at a grocery store, or Wally World, but not at CVS or Walgreens! I'm usually in there for very limited, and specialized, shopping!

*grabs end of cart and pushes it back so it throws the woman down*
And that should teach you to look where you're going.

Lately customers have become way more ravenous when it comes to biting the hand that feeds you.

RW: No, ASSWIPE, I do NOT work here! I'm in *insert description of uniform* because that's what I fucking chose to wear today! Don't like it, FUCK OFF!

Aside from the "asswipe" part, I've said that to some hickabilly asshole in Wal-Mart. I called him a jerkoff (it was in my pre-cussing days, and when I got home I had to shower because for some reason I felt, well, dirty after saying "fuck". I have since learned to use it "properly").

Me: Excuse me?better than what'd I'd be saying right off the bat.

i'd prolly be saying, "WTF!!!" ... and ... just Grrrrrrrrr.
... females (and i'm thinking something very nastier right now) like that don't have a right to be shopping. they deserve being booted out to the street until they can behave properly in public!

Oh, no effing way, man. I probably would have lost my job for making an old lady cry.

Honestly, can anyone say 'battery' ? You should have called the police and pressed charges.

I haven't had people ramming carts into me (on purpose anyway), or mouthing off that much. That might have to do with the fact I'm 6-foot-2 and a pretty hefty guy who, despite not being in the best shape, looks like I could kick your ass if you piss me off.

When I go on my breaks, I take my vest off, but of course, I've been working at my job for the last eight years now, so most customers recognize me even on my break. If I'm just aimlessly wandering and browsing, I'll answer their questions if it's a simple thing. If I'm trying to find something specific to buy before my break is up, I'll inform them, "Sorry, I'm on my break, but <so-and-so> over there can help you."

If someone rammed me with a cart and copped that kind of attitude with me, I'd probably have knocked their head off.

Dont you know dear?

We retail monkeys are NOT human beings. We are just human shaped pieces of carpet, and our only function is to bend to their will and allow them to walk all over us. ... Customers feel very uncomfortable when the carpet starts to act like it has it's own free will or is even a sentient being. In fact this unspeakable act usually ends with Said customer screaming things like "I'll have your job!" "I want to talk to the manager" "Your a Fucking bitch" or "WITCH WITCH! BURN HER AT THE STAKE!" .......

Quoted for truth.

What if the next person that bitch does it to has a pain disorder, fragile bones, or is in some other way going to be seriously hurt by it?

She needs a lesson before she injures someone: and the only way she's going to listen to the lesson is through her wallet and the public embarassment of being called to court to explain her assault.

Someone needs to find her parents and slap them for not putting her in her place when she was a spoiled little child.

"Ma'am, you seem to be operating under the same mentality that was so prevalent in the Postal offices during the 80's and early 90's. The mentality that the employees there somehow become robots when the uniform is put on and do not require things like breaks and lunches. This attitude caused stress in the workplace and the postal employees then snapped under the pressure and so the phrase 'going postal' was coined. Again let me point out that you are exhibiting the same mentality that led to those unfortunate circumstances. As such it would be greatly appreciated if you could acknowledge me as a human being and apologize for your rude behavior. <wait for response which will hopefully be an apology> Now was there anything I can help you with?"

The last bit is only if your on the clock.
