Advice Needed In Dealing With An Asshole Store Clerk
So I live directly behind a grocery store. I have no car so I walk to grocery store with my own grocery cart that I bought years ago from another store closing shop. So a male clerk I call Frankenstein who works the service desk there one day tried to take my cart. He said it belongs to the store and it obviously does not as my cart is blue trimmed the stores are red trimmed. I told him it is my cart and noone is taking it. He told me that had I stolen it. I went and got a manager who just rolled his eyes and went on.

So yesterday it was raining and a friend gave me a ride to grocery store. She dropped me off and had car problems never returned to get me. I had $100 worth of groceries to get home. A lady manager came by and I asked her if I could borrow the store's cart to get my groceries home. She said yes that is fine that she knows im honest and would return when done. Yes I did return it right after I was done. So today I have my own cart and I was getting some Sprite, some meat for spaghetti and some snacks. I turn a corner and there stood Frankenstein again glaring at me with another cashier lady who asked "Did you return that cart you took yesterday?" I said "Yes and fuck you both" Then I went and found the lady manager who had given me permission to borrow the stores cart. I told her she needed to have a talk with her help as I returned that cart. She proceeeds to go tell Frankenstein that unless he has a managers badge on then he needs to shut his mouth to me. I told her thank you and left out giving the asshole a dirty look.

So I know he will give me problems again on my return. I want to choke him but then ill be arrested. Any advice on what to say or do next time? I really want to teach him a lesson. Thanks

Why waste a bunch of energy? I mean if you're just ornery like a ill tempered mule, you could haunt that business every single time he's there and waste his time and just rub his nose in it.

Seems like folly though and pointless.

Do you own a machete or a spear?

If so, can you modify them for "everyday assault"?

Do more than expected, take less than allowed.

When dealing with a friend, if you aren't getting the short end, you're doing it wrong.

I didn't realise you were an older woman. My apologies. However, if he does poke at ya you can not only sue the store, but you can have him fired. If you enjoy the store let them off the hook(they will love you for it) But the jackass will be fired for sure. Problem solved.

Decorate your cart with ribbons, flowers, etc. Maybe even attach a fake license plate like a kid’s bicycle. You could even change up the wheels and put on some heavy duty ones. If you got a receipt when you bought it, put it in a laminated pouch and keep it handy to pull it out when he gets in your face. (You could always make up a fake one, too.)

He’ll look like a jerk hassling you about a cart that obviously isn’t theirs and I bet you even get some complements on your creativity.

Pray for him. He’s obviously got issues.

Does he have a good view of his scooter while he's at work? If it's obscured from him, you could call a towing company and get that shit hauled off somewhere haha.

Good idea. That makes it obvious to other shoppers that you aren't stealing a cart as well so they will never side with the store worker if things get heated. Maybe also put a bicycle squeeze horn on it too, so if the worker bothers you again, all you have to do is squeeze the horn and say loudly "sir, I have already told you nicely, please leave me alone. This is bordering on harrassment now. I am just trying to get my groceries in peace."

That's honestly probably the best advice. It'll make him feel little if not responded to. I know when someone ignores me like that it makes me very self conscious. It also gets me to think about my behavior and how I could improve my social skills.

DO NOT DO THIS. It is highly illegal and will get you in major trouble.

The best options I can think of are:

1) Ignore him, like others suggested
2) Carry a Bible, book of Mormon, or some other religious book with you, and talk their ear off about religion every single time you're there. They'll learn to avoid you. If they mistreat you because if it, sue for religious discrimination or just tell a manager or the business owner. Finding another job in this economy might be difficult. The religion angle also gives the impression that you're opposed to stealing.

Keep everything legal, and remain above reproach, no matter how you feel.

If it's a lefty area, make it a Trump or anti-BLM bumper sticker. That way you can get his scooter keyed without actually having to do the crime yourself. You might even get a crazy lefty caught on surveillance camera and put in jail for vandalism as a two for one special.
