Dollar Tree

Okay, this happened a while ago but it STILL pisses me off.



I was in my "friendly" neightborhood Dollar Tree, looking at these cute little glass tealight holders they had, when suddenly come crazy lady with a cart and way too many kids decides I'm something that deserves to be hit in the shins with a shopping cart. I fall forward and the poor glass thing falls and breaks. After a brief argument with the lady in the cart I start to head to the counter to let someone know there was broken glass. I would have gone aorund the front of the aisles, but it was a Dollar Tree on a saturday (READ: BUSY!) So I went around the middle of the aisles only to be accosted by some bible-thumping morong in a gawd-awful floral print dress. She gets a few inches from my face and...

Her:: "IF YOU BREAK SOMETHING YOU SHOULD TELL SOMEONE!"
Me:: O.o "I was on my way to the register to get someone..."
Her:: "BULLSHIT YOU WERE YOU JUST DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR IT!"
Me:: Now, just so you know, I'm cranky. I have anger problems. And I don't tolerate rude or sutpid people. I explode. "LOOK! If you had WAITED one fucking second you would have seen me going to the register for someone. I didn't go THAT way because there were to many people. THIS was the fastest and most efficient way to get there. I don't have ANY problem WHATSOEVER paying $1 for the damn thing, but considering it was an ACCIDENT I didn't think I would have to. You need to back the FUCK off and stop picking fights with people you don't know. NOW, if you would kindly fuck off I will be heading to the register to tell someone and purchase my products for my grandmother."
Her:: -utterly shocked- YOU CAN'T TALK TO ME THAT WAY!
-Now the manager is on his way over, hehe-
Me:: "I CAN and I DID. Why don't you kindly FUCK OFF and I will be gone in a few moments!"
Manager:: "What's going on here?"
Me:: "I'm sorry. There was an accident by the glass products and your employee jumped the gun on accusations and assumed quite a few things. I apologize for losing my temper in your store, I'll be gone in a few moments."

The manager just nodded, and walked off with the huffy lady. I proceeded to check out and even went ahead and paid for the broken lamp. I have not been back nor do I think I want to.
