How I got screwed at Rite-Aid

By tomp12 ·
12 13 2003 The Rite-aid on Ball and Brookhurst in Anaheim, Orange County, California

around 4pm: I was shopping around for a radio to give to a friend of mine, and upon leaving this vile place, I was taken to a back room where 2 Rite-Aid staff showed me some items that they said I took. I said to them "I did not take these items" but they did not believe me. the pooice were called and I was handcuffed and had to pay a fine. More than likely these two Rite-aid staff were so fucking pissed off upon learning they won't get their Christmas bonus, they decided to take their anger out on me. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WILL NOT GO TO THAT VILE PLACE AGAIN.

E-MAIL ME AT tomp12@netscape.com if you had similar experiences!

Dang!

by Dr Dij In reply to How I got screwed at Rite ...

Did they have video of you? I can't believe they would charge someone without evidence. However I had a similar experience: about a year ago, I got flu or cold I think real bad. walked into a drugstore (maybe rite-aid, maybe savon, near you, in Costa mesa) at adams & harbor. I hadn't washed my hair for a day or two, since I was sick. wearing casual clothes; nothing terribly scruffy. went directly to the cold aisle.

I'm the type who ALWAYS reads ingredients. I hate having things I dont need in cold medicines. Tylenol, for example is added to all but a few brands. (and it destroys your liver at near the max suggested dose).

well, anyway, I was taking my time reading the bottles and this heavyset young lady employee decided that I was about to steal some cold medicine. (she didn't say anything to me) but she hung around near me, watching me and doing busy work on shelves near me.

Hey, I'm a programmer, and don't need to steal anything. I'm sure I make X integer times her salary. Would be pretty stupid of me to, esp. with today's cameras anyway. But it was in a way wierd and somehow sad, pathetic or funny, to see this attitude among the drugstore's employees.

sorry about your problem.
