I had the idea to go and get some food at the corner store.
Little did I know, that when I was almost done paying for my goods,
it occured to me that this guy didn't give me my receipt. And this always
happens at other food restaurants, most notably some blue chips in Canada.
So I said this exactly, and sort of arrogantly:
"- You know what, every time I come in here, and it's not just here; other places too, but I never
get my receipt. And this is an issue and a legal "thing.", and as a customer I feel that
I am entitled to my hard-copy receipt at my point of transaction. And each time I come in here
from now on I'm going to start asking for it
It might have sounded rude, for sure, but I definitely did not raise my voice. Nor did I swear. And that's when "it" began. The "hate." It's
happened before apparently. This guy does not like people on disability or "low income" citizens, because he feels that people on welfare are
"bums." who do nothing all day except "mooch off the gubbermint."
When he replied "You have to ask for it."
I said "I know, I'm going to start asking for it."
So what he did, initially after that acidic reaction was: he began swearing like he was rinsing with shampoo.
Swear. Repeat. Swear. Repeat. You get the picture.
That's when I involved a nearby customer who said.. absolutely nothing.
And that's when he yelled at me to get out of his store.
At this point I believed him to have thought that I wanted the receipt right now and then, which
of course is not possible because he is running a manual machine. I replied "Can you
stop swearing at me? This is ridiculous. You're coming off as aggressive and threatening.
This is the exact moment when he raised his arms from his body, and physically shoved me away
from the front of his counter and told me to get out of his store one more time. At this time,
another couple of customers were inside the store and had seen the whole event. At this point
nobody was saying anything again.
This is when he ran around the side of the counter, grabbed me by the collar of my coat, and literally tried
to drag me out of his store forcefully. I tried with all of my might to hang on to whatever I could as he
hurled a deuce set of punches to my face and my back, until
eventually I stared him in the face after he walked away to get his phone to call the cops, and began punching him as he tried to defend himself in
the side of the head.
It was at this point when eventually I walked outside and said
"Why didn't you say something? This is what happened in 1938 when Hitler was lining
up the Jews on the side of the road and shooting them in the back of the head. When
nobody says anything, violence and brutal force occurs."
The understanding was that next time I would come in and ask for my receipt, however, after
asking somebody to refrain from threatening me and basically becoming a "domestic terrorist."
after using brutal force on me.
I refused to leave his store, because I didn't think it was against the law, or against
corporate policies to ask for a receipt next visit. Nor was it against
corporate policy to request one of your employees to refrain from threatening,
swearing or using excessive violence against you.
