Link works fine. Dense this morning; assuming the incident happened to you, right? Sorry to hear, but then there are many people in our country that are currently behaving in abnormal and paranoid ways.

Don't know anything else that is "okay" to say here. Don't want to stray into controversial, but did want you to know that I read your post.

I Believe that the security guard needs to be repramanded and to loose the job for a year and within that year cannot seek employment in a field where he/she has any control over the public.And to make a public apolagy to the victim.As far as the assistant Mgr. she needs to find a new job she would not be working for me.And i also believe that the district attorny's office should file charges against both the security guard and the assistant Mgr.

Well Sea sorry for what took place but i did make a comment on that to planetfeed back.hope fully it will show up.

yes, it was me......... Michael S. = Sean Michael (aka)

I thought long about weather or not to post this in the guide at all. This is my main place on the web, that I come to at ALL hours of the day and night.

I decided to interject something other than pc stuff, and want to thank all that took the time to read this post.

All opinions are welcome, I have allot of trust and in the peoples opinions that share here, and respect for their ability to reason.


YODA, KAY,- I appreciate your support. I guess I wanted to see if others would feel as I do, if it were to have happened to them.

Hi Sea,
Can't add alot but it seems that the staff at this store have bad attitude problems. Which could be dangerous for an elderly person. Not sure of the law here in England but the staff member could be done for assault.

I listen to a lot of talk radio, and one program I tune in Is the G. Gordon Liddy program. He was discussing a similar confrontation with a caller who had been stopped physically by a security guard outside a Best Buy store. Liddy, who is a lawyer, advised this man that with good representation, there is no reason he shouldn't own the very store he had a gripe with. His reason was that if a security guard puts his hands on you without a really good reason which can be documented, then he is in violation of some very serious laws.

kfh, what you mentioned is true regarding old people, but think about the fact that the really dangerous part was that I have an instant reaction to whenever I am hit/attacked. I attack back, instinctively. Certainly I would have felt terrible if this had happened, but who expects a lady store clerk to assult you??

Sea,

Read the post! An unprovoked attack as you described is an assault. I would suggest that you head down to the local Police Station ASAP and file assault charges. In a lawsuit the defense attorney will come at this like an accident victim who didn't get medical attention immediately, i.e., as if it wasn't that big a deal!

I would say this individual (like a domestic assault) needs to be responded to with criminal charges, or the behavior will be repeated. This individual needs to know the seriousness of her actions, and probably needs some personal help...like anger management.

You probably do have a tort case in the making, however I do believe that you have to prove some sort of damages, i.e., loss of income etc. Your attorney will be able to help you in this regard...and I would definitely suggest that you contact immediately. In Minnesota you have a limited amount of time to notify a corporation of intent to pursue legal action.

As Yoda also mentioned, I too am sorry this happened. No one deserves to be treated in such a manner!

------------------
May all your dealings in life be win/win!

This can serve as a notice of intent to file action.

Sounds a really weird incident - but some people just behave abnormal, when they get into positions of authority (esp if they are in uniform)! Be real interesting to see how they reply to you. You'll have to let us know in due course, now that our interest has been aroused! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/tongue.gif

Personally speaking, I'd stay away from the law if you can reach an accomodation with the company. Going to law can be a lottery (even in what seems open and shut cases); and a lottery that can be lost.

Best of luck though.

kfh <<Not sure of the law here in England but the staff member could be done for assault.>>

Have just phoned a solicitor friend of mine, and the answer is definitely YES, an assault charge would certainly stand up in court, assuming witnesses are prepared to come forward to testify.

sea Sorry to hear you were involved in such an unpleasant incident.

Whyzman
12-01-2001, 07:34 AM
Sea,

I am unsure if your notifying the company by email that you intend to proceed with court action is sufficient.

Depending on State Statute you may need to "serve notice" on the corporation which would entail an "affidavit of service." This may then need to be filed with the court. Again, I would check with your attorney.

Called BBB and Rite-Aid 800# yesterday, they promised action within 4 days.

WHOA SEA http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/eek.gif
Just got back in town so this is the first time I have seen this. Man, I am sorry to hear that.
As for suggestions on what to do, I think that has been covered well enough. It sounds like you are on the right track of taking action. Only thing I would add is, "Be prepared for the long haul." These things take time (I know), so you must be patient. Also, don't let anything they say or insinuate bother you. It is their job from here on out to discredit and belittle you in order to win the case. Any offer made by them at this point should be concidered 10% of actual case value.

Good luck Sea. http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/wink.gif

What a bummer.

Where's F. Lee Bailey when we need him.

The first thing I was taught a long time ago about dealing with the public. You don't put your hands on anyone for any reason. Granted sometimes you feel like doing so. But it is never warranted.

A place of business is in a world of doo-doo if thier employee/employees are guilty of such action.

What would I do if I were wearing your Nike's ? I'd find myself an Attorney who is willing to take this on a commission basis (incentitive) and turn him/her loose.

bassman gotta aggree w/you.

Luck.

"TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Citing his handling of funds in a drug case, the state Supreme Court on Wednesday barred defense attorney F. Lee Bailey from practicing law in Florida.

Bailey, who has represented such high-profile clients as Dr. Sam Sheppard, Patricia Hearst and O.J. Simpson, was disbarred for the way he handled 600,000 shares of stock owned by a former client now serving life in prison for drug smuggling." Washington Post, Wednesday, November 21, 2001

My witness (friend) that was there for the entire event says that he thinks she struck me out of frustration because I asked the sec gaurd herself what her name was instead of waiting for her (asst mngr).

A Corp. like this can throw Ivy-League attorney's at you until who laid a chunk.

But they fear the ACLU. There's some pretty good boys and girls play ball for them.

Have no sympathy for the other parties involved. So the Corp. terminates one or two hoping you'll call that good and forgive and forget. However, the Corp. only admits guilt by termination of involved parties.

Got this strange feeling the tapes from the store cameras are locked in a vault somewhere.

Turn the Big Dogs loose.

I don't know, boss.

If you start down that road, you want to be really sure that revenge is important to you, and an adequate end for its own sake. You aren't likely to make jerks like that regret what they did, and you aren't likely to change corporate policies and (more importantly) training processes.

It _could_ happen, but not likely. Its a gamble.

If it doesn't change, all you got left is revenge, which might end up in monetary form, or it might not. Even if it does, the legals are going to get more of it than you do, anyway.

You gotta decide what's important to you - what's at the center of your life. It might be better to just admit that you're a better human being (and I'm pretty convinced of that, I might add), let go of it, and get on with life. That vengeance tao can leave you pretty bitter at the end, even if you win. You might not want to focus your life on that event, even for a little while.

Just my put, lookin' back up the road I've been walking...

Well spoken fred.

My post was not meant to convey revenge or vengence. Although we've all heard the old adage... Revenge is Sweet. It doesn't always work that way.

My line of thought is only that this incident goes on to show what today's society is comming to.

I'm a very easy going kinda guy. Live and let live type of person. But don't push me around.

In England an assault is a threat of violence or personal injury to another ie: the violence/personal injury does not need to be carried out. (the person commiting the assault must be in a position to carry it out, ie: close enough to strike or throw a missile etc. and/or the 'injured party' must believe that the 'aggressor' is in such a position to do so.)this is punishable under criminal law

if the action is carried out it becomes an aggrevated assault.

As such the Police should confiscate the tape as evidence of a crime.

I hate to see this happen to you or anyone SEA, but i'm a %100 behiund you on this. Except in my case i'da just busted him in the chops ( spent a little too much time siting in small rooms when i was a teen http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif }.

You're going about it in the right way however. As satisfying as it is to " get some back "-most times it causes more trouble than it's worth.

Reading your post has reminded me of an incident i witnessed at a local Wal-mart a few years ago; i was standing in the sporting goods section trying to think up a good excuse i could give to my wife for why i needed a new shotgun ( http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/tongue.gif ) when i overheard one of the associates and a manager ( standing in the aisle almost directly behind me ) make a lewd comment about an attractive lady who had walked by and was bending over to inspect an item on a bottom shelf.

Just so happens that the guy standing next to me was her husband ( we had been discussing the merits of different brands/models of shotguns ) and he was, needless to say, not very amused at what he over heard!! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/eek.gif


Well, to make a long story short-he gave them a very verbal dressing down; then his wife did, and later i was asked to go to court as a witness to a sexual harassment suit against Wally-world. I went gladly-because even though i could identify with the guys making the comment-you just DON'T do that in a public job like that!!


I believe that the gentlemen and woman eventually settled out of court for a pretty neat chunk of change.

Strangely ( or not ) i never saw that particular associate or manager there again! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/eek.gif

Is Rite Aid a drug store?

Never heard of this place before. We have Shoppers Drug Mart and Lawtons in Canada, eh.

We do have Wal-Mart though. Over 120 locations across Canada.

We also don't have Krispy Kreme...and I hear their doughnuts are amazing. We have Robin's Donuts and Tim Horton's donuts. I like Tim's myself...even though I don't drink coffee. I refer to coffee as "Demon Semen". I like tea.

Sorry to hear about your plight Sea. Sounds like a person on a power trip or with no sense of humanity what-so-ever.

On another note. Has anyone ever had their wisdom teeth removed? I'm not sure, but I think I have one that's impacted and sore as hell. I'm 26 and I've never had a tooth pulled before. I'm going to my dentist on Wednesday and hopefully get this problem solved. I only hope it doesn't involve me being conscious while getting an extraction(s). I'd rather go to the hospital and get knocked out and have all 4 pulled at one time. I've heard about people going that route and it's painful but at least it's all done at one time.

Hopefully I can wait until after the holidays so I can enjoy my turkey and pie. Thankfully I can chew on my left side with little pain.

Happy holidays everyone! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

kayden azagthoth It all depends on the tooth (and the wisdom!!! of the dentist). http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif Some are real easy and some real bummers. I had one that gave similar problems and a lot of pain when I was your age; it didnt grow up to the same height as the other teeth and thereby got infected round its rim (pericoronitis). Though there were no problems with the other three (all half grown too) they decided to extract all four under General Anaesthetic. It was a breeze and just a bit sore for a couple of days. Apparently the lower ones can be more complicated coz their roots can get caught up in a nerve to the tongue. Enjoy your turkey!! and dont bite on any bones http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/wink.gif
