I tend to agree with the other attorneys who answered this question. Sometimes it is just best to walk away and avoid the conflict. If you had standing to sue and you did, in fact, sue you would probably see Aderia and Jasmine again at a court appearance and deposition. Do you want to see them again? Sometimes bad things happen to good people. It takes a wise person to walk away.

By giving out your phone number repeatedly to store employees, it is clear that you were converting these business-retail relationships into personal or potential personal relationships. So, it will not be persuasive to a finder of fact for you to launch a legal offensive against the store on these facts.
Just move on. Stay out of that store and consider not being available for personal relationships with retail employees during their work hours.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
