Dollar Generalopenly accused of stealing by asst, manager

J Oct 22, 2019 Review updated:

on 10-21-2019 @ 530pm I was shopping and wanted the one dollar bag cereals. As I was standing in front of the cereal aisle I did not see them. In the corner of my eye I saw a small framed black female peeping down my way. She hollowered to me " Do I need help finding something in a sarcastic manner. I said no, that I was good, She then said, He put something in his pocket very loudly and that she was going to check the the tape to see what it was. I was shocked after looking around me and realizing it was me she were talking about. I immediately retrieved my shopping cart to show her that I was there to spend my money not steal. I became very embarrassed and feelings were hurt because the other shoppers could hear everything-that I was stealing. I offered an explanation as to why I may have appeared looking funny like, I am 66 years old with glacoma. That is my personal business but I felt so humiliated in front of the other customers I tried to save face because they were staring in awe. I went on to explain to her and the black guy cashier that I don't steal and that I currently work in Loss Prevention . I have been wrongly accused and your camera will prove me right. I will not be satisfied with an apology-because after I purchased $32.00 of other product, she made no attempt to admit she was wrong and had made a terrible choice in her assessment of me. I want this company to show me on your camera what I did to warrant this kind of treatment. I had a very rough night of sleeping and somewhat depression. I want to come back to the store while your team examines the tape and if I did anything wrong I will stay there until the police come. I do have my receipts and also I did call corporate and spoke with Ms Darcie. complaint number is [protected].

    I like to give people the benefit of the doubt so I will accept this person was not stealing and was falsely accused. I wish something like this would happen to me because I would so enjoy embarrassing the [censored] out of someone.

    Putting a product in one's pocket is not an attempt to steal nor is it stealing UNTIL one is outside the store with the item still in one's pocket and unpaid for.

    Actually, once it is consealed on your person, in your pocket, it is considered theft! You've already consealed it ... that's why there's buggies and hand baskets..
