We had to stop by the store before the Christmas parade Dec. of '08. My daughter is suffering from ADD, so it takes a little more scolding to get her to come out of the store with us.
Well, my husband, after making his purchase was standing at the door ready to leave, and our daughter was running through the store upset because they didn't have a certain toy...needless to say, she was given the 3 count, and daddy had to raise his voice a little more sternly. Not yelling or verbally abusive, mind you.
The manager yelled across the store to my husband to leave this instant and leave the child alone.
He responded in kind that it is his daughter, she suffers from add, and has to be talked to this way to grasp her attention.
She then said she didn't care, to leave before she called the police on him. He was standing at the door! What, did she want us to leave our child?
I went in after wards to quietly discuss what happened, because I was waiting out in the car, but could see everything.
My hubby is not a mean guy, nor a bully, he is a Doctor in Childhood ed.! I mean, come on!
Anyway, she then rips into me, and I started in nice with her. Well, that got me riled and she told me where to go, how to get there, etc. Stupid (yet shaking mad) me called her the b-word, and she got on her phone to call the police. We didn't do anything! We are customers, were, for heavens sake. The police understood, but because she was the all-mighty manager, she placed an order for us to never go in her store again. Gladly, poorly ran anyway. I will be seeking people to contact over her head. Just needed to vent.
