1. Don't break her cane. She's legally blind, I'd wager we're talking about her "white cane." She needs that.

2. If it were me, assault charges would have been filed.

3. If I were your manager, she would have been perma-banned immediately. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.00.

What's done is done and you can't change the past, however you can refuse to help her in the future. I suggest talking to management and getting the complaint in writing to cover your ass.
My mom knew exactly who I was talking about; this SC used to monopolize the electric cart and ram into people. ASM told me she doesn't come in that often, but he would tell all the shift leads not to ask me to help her again (he didn't ask why, which leads me to think he knows about her).

So she's a known entity in the store; were she not disabled, her behavior would mean an insta-ban.

Her disability should not be taken into account. She should be banned.

What should that have to do with anything? She's rude, thoughtless, monopolizes the valuable time of the employees, and, oh yeah, assaulted you! Allowing her to continue shopping at your store is akin to a customer using "the race card" as an excuse to bully additional services and free shit and getting away with it. I don't care if you're black/Hispanic/[insert race here] or physically handicapped, it does not excuse terrible behavior and literally striking the employees.

Her disability is irrelevant -- or should be. In no way does it give her the right to be a Grade A bitch. Maybe if she is refused help in enough places, she'll smarten up.

The law might not see it that way. It would be all too easy for the SC to bring the ACLU into this and raise a huge stink.

I have been a card-carrying member of the ACLU. They do not support people assaulting other people, or any kind of violence, short of self-defense.

As for the SC, apparently for once I'm the nice guy here. Because if she did that to me, I would stop what I was doing and address her directly: "Ma'am, I am trying to help you with your shopping. However, if you strike me again, I shall stop helping you, I will leave you here to do your own shopping, and I will call the police and file assault charges against you. So, you can knock it off and act like an adult or you can continue to act like a spoiled little child. Your choice."

People with disabilities have the SAME rights
As everyone else. Unfortunately, a lot of them
Think they have MORE rights.
