    The Biggest Abuser

    | St. Paul, MN, USA | Health & Body, Top, Wild & Unruly

    (I’m a manager at a fairly large grocery store. We have a regular customer who is paralyzed from the waist down. He’s roughly 20 years old. He is scooting around on one of the store’s electric scooters, when an obese customer walks up to him.)

    Customer: “How dare you go around the store in one of those! You’re taking them away from people like me who do need them!”

    Regular: “Well, ma’am, I’ve been paralyzed ever since I was 14. While you can walk around and get your groceries, I certainly can’t, so I’d say I need this more that you.”

    Customer: “You make me sick; pretending to be a cripple!”

    (The customer then PULLS the regular out of the chair and drops him. I run over to try to help him.)

    Customer: “You! Get this sick piece of trash out of here! He’s pretending to be a cripple and—”

    Me: “I’m going to cut you off right there. [Regular] is most assuredly disabled, and you just picked him up and slammed him into the ground. Get out of my store, now, before I call the cops.”

    Customer: “This is an injustice! I’ll sue you!” *knocks things off shelves and leaves*

    (I get a call from corporate around a week later, because the customer has filed a complaint. I explain what really happened, and get the regular to confirm my story. The complaint is dropped, and the rowdy customer never returns.)
