Re: 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

Just continue to report to manager until he gets fired or leaves you alone. All it takes is the right manager.

Re: Advice Needed In Dealing With An Asshole Store Clerk
I own a personal shopping cart that I got for about $35 at the hardware store. It doesn't look anything like a grocery store shopping cart, so no one bothers me about it. They know it's mine.

To the poster who recommended that you personalize your cart, that's a great idea. The more you can make it look like it belongs to you and not the store, the better.

Interestingly enough, almost everything sold in Panama is made in the USA.

I still have the paperwork for my shopping cart, and it was made in Clifton, New Jersey. It's also very sturdy and well made.

I use the cart because, like most people, I don't have a car. I walk to the grocery store, and I can't carry all the bags back home. That's where the cart comes in.

My cart came from another grocery store that went out of business 5 years ago. They sold all inventory including the carts. I paid $5 for it. My cart is sturdy, well made and not a problem.

He waited until I got stuck and had to borrow one of the store's carts to get my stuff home. He then lied and said that I had not brought the cart back. Which he seen me do when I brought it back to store. He was watching me.

Ignore him. Don’t look at him. Don’t talk to him. Nothing. Go about your business like he’s not there, even if he addresses you.
 Quoting: THNKuCLLR


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.

It not worth going to prison over OP. If you hurt this person society will put you in prison and see to it that unspeakable things are done to you. Forget it, move on, the clerk probably won't be at that store a year from now anyway. Why lose your freedom over an idiot?

That is not true. Unless the store specifically prohibits outside carts, people are free to bring their own. I have seen several people shop with collapsible metal carts in Florida so they can walk to and from stores.

Personalizing it is fun. Ribbons, fake flowers, funny plastic animals, fake jewels - be creative!

You aren’t me so don’t try this unless you can back it up but I would get as close as necessary to him so as not to be overheard then I would politely tell him if he doesn’t stop with his bullshit harassment I would remind him where he lives and any other information I had on him which would be everything.
Some people might just tell you to go fuck yourself but I understand violence very well so then it’s that road we go down. I fucking Hate power tripping bully’s and I love correcting them however that has to be.
Proceed with caution and don’t let yourself be bullied.
Or laugh and taunt him trying to get him to swing on you if you think he is that dumb and then file a lawsuit against the store.
Or just blow it all off and continue with life? It’s all your choice

You sure your name isn’t Sisyphus?
Most people buy a car, you bought a cart[fuck even auto correct and grammar thinks that sounds wack]
my mind is afire (probably due to your screen name) wondering:
How you got to this site and at what point in time do you think your peers are living asking for help with a shopping cart for fucks sake.

Next time order pizza and have them bring the groceries, When they show up ask if they’d like to play some of your stand up arcade games....then when they say say your name back as ‘LONG’.....show them this post and they will you you theirs,

Re: Advice Needed In Dealing With An Asshole Store Clerk
I don't get the people that use shopping carts to transport good home without a car. I get the need for something with wheels, but a shopping cart??? Hell, half of them don't even roll right on linoleum floors, let alone some gravel, dirt, cracked road. And in Panama??? Why not a wagon, or a wheelbarrow? I would leave those damn carts the minute a wheel goes sideways and walk the stuff home, even if it meant many trips. I just don't get the use for them outside of stores, and believe me, there are many of them being used for your stated purpose around here.
