Tonight me and my fiance were accused of shoplifting from a 7-11 in Longwood, Fl. We make several trips a week to this store.
We went into the store and I was looking at some Ice Cream and my fiance was a couple feet away from me when a clerk approached us and told us she "saw" us steal from there a couple nights ago and that it "wasn't going to happen again" so I became rather irate! I said, "Oh, really now, did we??" and then I said "CAN I SEE THE VIDEO?" and she did not reply she just said "Buy what you need and leave" so then we got our stuff and went to check out and she accused my fiance of "stealing because he had his hands in his pockets" and she said "I will give you one chance to show me what you stole" so me and him both went thru his pockets to PROVE he had nothing!And then.....She goes on to say "I saw you steal the other night because you were both in here for so long looking around & didn't buy anything & walked out" & i just had to laugh because then i said "BECAUSE THIS STORE DID NOT HAVE WHAT WE NEEDED SO WE WALKED UP TO PUBLIX. I'm sure they could prove it on video at publix!" She then said "Just go" & wouldn't let us make our purchase.I said "I want to speak to your manager." she said "Ok i'll give you his number."Then i pulled out my phone & said "Ok, what is it?" She says "I change my mind.Just come back in the morning."My fiance told me to let's just go we were wasting our time with that idiot & we will go back in the morning.But I'm angry & embarassed! There were other shoppers in there, all of them staring at us. I wanted her to show us video proof so bad but everytime i asked she just ignored my request and demanded us to leave.We had nothing to hide & stole nothing.I don't feel i should have to worry about being harrassed when i go to the store...Thank you.
