The other day I was in a grocery store checkout line. There was an elderly lady there with a small child, a little girl, with her. The girl was maybe five years old. As soon as the kid sees me, she gives me the thumbs down sign! Kinda pissed me off. I’m picking up my bags for checkout, and I turn around, and the kid gives me the thumbs down sign again. I turn around and give the kid the thumbs down sign and say, “Thumbs down to you!” Then I grab my bags and leave.
I go to the same store today, and security comes up to me and tells me I’m banned for six months based on my conduct – my conduct with customers and with staff, I think he said. I told him I’d never had any negative interactions with the staff. I told him that some little kid was insulting me to my face and trying to start a fight, so I insulted her back.
Now I’m banned for six months, but I’m probably never going back. I’m sure they all think I’m a psycho in there.
Ok, peeps, tell me what I did wrong. Did I do something wrong by insulting that little brat right back? Were they right to ban me for six months?
