A woman threatened one of my supervisors when said supervisor was about 6 or 7 months pregnant, and we got a no trespassing order against her.
And about a year later, when we had new management, the same woman came in and got into an argument with our pharmacist on duty, calling him a dirty fucking n-word.
The fight between her and the police that went down that night was epic though.
How low can you go to do that to a girl scout? What is wrong with the scammers and theives of Sothern California! Don't they have children too? First we have a guy pulling a gun on a girl scout at the door, another guy calling one a hooker, and now there are people buying their cookies with fake cash! They will have to all now go through counterfit fit bill training just like we did at our stores! And they will need armed security guards at their table which will be covered in protective plastic glass. Girl Scout Cookie selling of the future...
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) -- At least two local crooks managed to swipe cookies and cash from a Girl Scout troop in Rancho Cucamonga using counterfeit money.
The Girl Scouts had just begun their annual cookie drive. Not only did the thieves buy several boxes of cookies with counterfeit money, but they also asked for change to be made.
"The girls are heartbroken," said troop leader Cheryl Williams. "Because they do trust, this is a life lesson for them."
The incident happened last Saturday after troops set up a table outside a local grocery store. A man and woman passed off the $50 counterfeit bills within minutes of each other.
Williams says the transaction seemed innocent enough.
"(The girls) used the counterfeit pen on the money, and it worked," Williams said.
They had been on the lookout for this type of crime after another troop was hit.
Law enforcement is reviewing surveillance video taken from the store in the hopes of identifying the suspects. Rancho Cucamonga Police Capt. Anthony Onodera said they also reached out to the troop to provide training on spotting counterfeit money.
The troop believes they are out a little more than $200 from the incident, and Williams said the girls are liable for that money.
LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (KABC) -- A second case of crooks using counterfeit cash to purchase Girl Scout cookies has come to light in the Inland Empire.
Deputies on Tuesday released surveillance images of a person of interest seen at a shopping mall Feb. 27 in Lake Elsinore. The photos show a young woman with long black hair, jeans, sneakers and a black hooded sweatshirt. No names or other identifying details have been released.
Authorities say unknown suspect(s) bought several boxes of Girl Scout cookies with counterfeit money in that area. The suspect(s) had already fled when deputies arrived.
Hot off youtube RHUers! Posted a few days ago. Custy spits on a Grocery worker (video says he's a manager, but he looks more like store security). Most of the video is somewhat far away and hard to listen to, so I wouldn't recommend not even bothering with the first four and half minutes. But at the 5:00 mark the custy does his thing and erupts with colorful swearing. It's really a disgusting, despicable act to do that to someone and I wish they all could be held accountable.
I was spit on at The Big Fancy a couple of times. It's not something you expect to have happen to you when you go to work at a high-end store and mall. On the playground, by the bully, yes.
Have you ever been spit on or witnessed a custy doing it? How did you handle it?
I basically ran to the employee bathroom for a shower in the sink trying not to throw up from the smell.
Unfortunately, my post holiday shifts have been bug-nuts. We buy used cds, dvds, blu-rays and games so all the people who forgot to budget, or who now have exceeded max capacity on their shelves bring in their stuff to sell.
I also had one guy trying to save me for 20 minutes and another who mumbled about asking me to dinner, but then continued the regular customer, employee interaction as if nothing had happened, not even pausing for me to reject him.
Then all the other customers complain that we don't have their movie. We rely on people to sell it to us, and it's been Christmas AND THEN we had a boxing week sale. If our shelves look a bit empty it's not because I've decided to hoard "Failure to Launch," in the back room. Although it would make an acceptable dart board...
Then there was the crazy guy who wants no French writing on his films (this is Canada, a bilingual country). He doesn't come into the store, but calls and makes me run around looking for titles and then rejects them all because he wants the American versions. Go to Amazon, stop wasting my time you strange little Francopobe.
If you want Macy's service, go to Macy's; not Walmart or the independent store down the street. Go to a boutique.
Sorry, had to vent. Post Holidays just suck at my store.
I worked in a cigar shop for two years. Just about every week some douche would walk in, try to impress me with is "vast" knowledge of cigars and then walk out without buying a damn thing!
They'd ask to see the $40-50 stogies, run them under their noses, (thereby leaving a trail of snot on them), crush them between thumb and index finger and then try to put them back in the box.
When I pointed to the sign that said, "You damage it, you're BUYING it!" they'd tell me they're a personal friend of the owner, and they could get me FIRED!
My response was always the same: "That's not the threat you seem to think it is!"
From Reddit: Female pilot for Westjet received this lovely note from a passenger yesterday.
Here is her response:
To @David in 12E on my flight #463 from Calgary to Victoria today. It was my pleasure flying you safely to your destination. Thank you for the note you discreetly left me on your seat. You made sure to ask the flight attendants before we left if I had enough hours to be the Captain so safety is important to you, too. I respectfully disagree with your opinion that the "cockpit" (we now call it the flight deck as no cocks are required) is no place for a lady. In fact, there are no places that are not for ladies anymore. I have heard many comments from people throughout my 17 year career as a pilot. Most of them positive. Your note is, without a doubt, the funniest. It was a joke, right? RIGHT?? I thought, not. You were more than welcome to deplane when you heard I was a "fair lady." You have that right. Funny, we all, us humans, have the same rights in this great free country of ours. Now, back to my most important role, being a mother.

This took ploce 6 months ago at a Ross and is one of those instances where our cell phones can come in handy against Psycho Custys! It looks doubtful the woman got prosecuted but nice to know so many people came to the old lady's aid (who was probably sticking up for the cashier, I'm guessing?) I also rather enjoyed the spirtual lecture one woman gave the angry custy!
Today wasn't just another day in hell. I got to meet a new operative who started operating in the field as well, and as a result I had to give her advice on what to do a few times. Now this I didn't mind at all, because we're all new at some point, and if I can't help, I'll just page for a supervisor manager. That I don't mind. But what I absolutely DO mind is people who cut in line, regardless of the reason.
To help you understand better about the situation, the checkout registers are positioned at a counter that's shaped in an L formation. The registers are on the long part of the 'L' while the short side has a bagging area for the first register, that's also lowered so that we can step over it if need be. I've had to tell a few youngsters not to sit there, which has gone remarkably well. But I digress...
Today, I was ringing someone out, and a middle-aged woman (forties or fifties maybe) was waiting to go next. She was standing at the corner of the L, since the registers had the scanners on their left-hand side, when all of a sudden an elderly looking woman just walked up and walked right in between the corner of the counter and the woman, and behind the customer I was finishing up with!
I told the elderly woman that the other woman was next, followed by the woman explaining that she was next. However, the elderly woman shook her head a little, and it dawned on me that this person barely spoke English. I was trying to explain to her that she wasn't next, but she was shaking her head. Fortunately, the new trainee opened up and took the elderly woman while I helped the middle aged woman. Incredibly enough, the woman who WAS next didn't take it personally nor did she take it out on me. She accepted my apology about what happened and explained she knew it wasn't my fault.
Unfortunately, it didn't quite end there. When the trainee tried to tell the elderly woman the total, she simply shook her head a few times. We wrote it down for her on a piece of receipt paper, but she only gave us a few dollars. We had to point it out a few more times before she FINALLY got it through her head that she needed to give us more money. I admired my trainee for having so much patience.
Before I go any further, I understand that not everyone in this country speaks English, and I have nothing against people who don't speak English. I only pointed that out because it's relevant to the story and how things were made difficult.
Also, remember how I pointed out that scammer in my last story? Well, it appears that there's a pattern to this that I've noticed, in that they tend to come in on the weekends. One of my co-workers, who I haven't thought of a name for yet, thinks that's because they figure they could bring in returns without receipts and get away with getting a store credit because they figure the store manager isn't in. I agree with what she's saying, but unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Namely because if it's a high priced item, we have to have a supervisor check the internal computer system to see if we sold any of that item in the past month or so. If we haven't, we can't take it back.
Also, did I mention my manager is working weekends as well?
Today, I had the misfortune of having about five or six customers in a row making returns. The first one was a woman who I'm fairly certain I've seen before (although I do know it wasn't the scammer who yelled at Little Miss Cheerful,) who was trying to make a return of a store brand item that was fairly expensive. I immediately notified the manager, and while he was coming up, the customer in question claimed that she had talked to a man and that they said she could bring it back to the store to get a store credit.
When my manager came up, he took it into the office and checked in the computer for a record of sales. He then came back and stated he hadn't sold any of that item for at least a month. That was when the custy turned into a crusty, claiming that she'd called the corporate hotline, and that they stated she could return it to that store and that the manager would OK it. The manager denied this, saying he'd never heard anything like that, and that she'd have to call the corporate hotline again.
The crusty then claimed she was unable to do anything since the hotline was closed for the weekend, and that she knew she'd gotten it at our store. She then pointed out how I'd handled another refund without a receipt, giving that customer a store credit. The manager explained that it was a LOT cheaper, that was why. The crusty then tried to point out our refund policy without a receipt, at which point the manager stated it said, 'the item MAY be returned.' Eventually, the crusty realized she was fighting a losing battle and left.
May all your customers be polite and may the scammers stay away!
