My daughter, uncle and myself went into Family Dollar, my daughter opened up a small pack of cookies , when we got to the register my uncle said ring this up I’m paying for it. The cashier rung up the open cookies and did not say anything else
I am directly behind them with a small bag of dollar candy that I opened
While he is ringing up my uncle things
He ask me in a rude manor did you come in here with that, I said no, then I opened my hand so he could see the 4 quarters and dime I had in it
He immediately starting screaming and said I’m tired of y’all always stealing, it’s to much stealing in this store and I’m tired of it
I said how am I’m stealing if I’m in line to pay for it with money in my hand
I raised my voice and said I have never stole anything don’t put me in a category with other people he screamed on and on and kept repeating I’m tired of y’all stealing
We are going back and fourth for about 4 minutes
I slammed my change on the counter he refused to pick the money off the counter until I said I’m not leaving without a receipt
He picked the money up rung my bag of candy up and then threw the receipt in my face
