this store sucks.

Complaint Rating:  14 % with 7 votes
14% 7
My mother and I picked up four items and she told me that if I wanted one of the items that I would have to play along with her and say that it was on sale when it was not. So the cashier said that it was not on sale and my mother said the sale item rang up as full price. She already wroted a letter on this. They refused to check to see the item if it was on sale or not so my mother said she did not want the item it it did not scan at the sale price. It was on regular price but one of the item i wanted was in the wrong spot so my mom said to pretend that we dont know it is regular price. My mom was mad because they refused to check the item and there was more of the toy item i wanted because she said while i get in line you put the rest of the toys in there so they give it for that price when they see it is on the sale rack. They refused to check it out two people refused so she said forget it and now because of them I am sad and won't get my toy because they refused to check it out. She says thanks for making a little child sad.

Fake or not, it is possible that this letter is true. If this poster really is 11 and her mother does this kind of stuff all the time it is possible the child does not know that it is illegal. I have heard of many cases where the parents use their children to steal all sorts of stuff for them because in some cases they are too young to be held responsible if caught. These children don't know right from wrong because they trust their parents are not doing anything wrong. They don't find out until they are older. Now an eleven year old would know that putting a chocolate bar in their pocket and walking out of the store without paying for it is wrong, chances are they won't know that putting merchandise on a cheaper bin to try and get it for that price is also wrong and illegal. They think as long as it is paid for whether they pay the correct price or cheaper that they did nothing illegal, and unfortunately parents like the person who wrote the review encourage this behavior so much that a child thinks it is perfectly okay and does not question the parent. Thought I doubt this person is 11. They are just claiming to be 11 for trolling purposes. They are purposely making spelling and grammar mistakes to make them look 11. At 11 they would be right not sixth or seventh grade and by then you can type a more legible letter. Sure there will be some errors but not like this. Unless the child is special needs.

While this seems like a fake letter it is very possible that the letter is true. I have often heard of parents getting their young children sometimes even younger than the daughter steal. While an eleven year old knows that taking an item off the shelf and putting it in their pocket or bag is stealing they don't know that putting an item from a more expensive bin to a less expensive bin is also considered stealing. They think that because they paid for it they did nothing illegal. A child trusts their parent and does not think they are doing anything wrong. So it is possible for an eleven year old to be unaware that what she is doing is wrong if their parents encourage this sort of behavior.

Also note that at 11 a child right now should be in grade 6 or 7. By that time(unless they have a learning disability) they should be able to write a better review. I think that this person is pretending to be 11 by purposely making spelling and grammar errors for trolling purposes not knowing that at that age you should be able to type better.

Ums, huh? The store sucks because the staff wouldn't accommodate your mother who was trying to steal from them? Ok, where can I go to review your mother?

The mother probably has 4 other children, is illegally here in the Country thanks to Czar Harry "Traitor and Marxist" Reid, and reporting 6 children to feed her fat face on food stamps. This is why we need FOOD STAMP REFORM WITH CHILD LIMITS, and US CITZENSHIP REQUIRED. But we need to throw Saddam Hussein Obama out next year!!! Romney is ObamaLite, so be sure you pick a winner. She is also probably a ### child. She loves to destroy merchandise. The mother needs to be sterilized but thanks to the God and United States of America hating liberals that is considered cruel and unusual punishment. Illegals think condoms will kill them. CALL YOUR ELECTED OFFICALS AND DEMAND FOOD STAMP REFORM WITH CITZENSHIP REQUIREMENT AND CHILD LIMITS. DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER KEEP CALLING THEM PLEASE!!!

This person is not eleven. This person is an adult troll pretending to be 11 for attention.
