Good gosh, we know they are in every state, but it’s still annoying to find people like this. Last spring a woman ran into her grocery store to run a few quick errands, she probably went a little like a scrub since she was in a hurry and threw on a comfy t-shirt and jeans.
However, things turned VERY wrong when a cashier took notice of her attire and flipped her biscuit over something seriously dumb.
She was told to leave because she disgusted a particularly sensitive employee who took one look at the shopper, and said she was sick of people like her.
Meredith, who was uncomfortable releasing her last name, checked everything off of her shopping list and headed to the register. Once she finished putting her items on the conveyor belt, she was informed that she shouldn’t even bother since the cashier wasn’t going to ring her up.
The employee said that it was time for Meredith to go because the shopper’s shirt was a slap in the face, and the clerk “was doing everything she could not to cry.”
This wasn’t the first time Kroger has turned away a paying customer for the same reason as Meredith, and like the others before her, she wasn’t going to let it slide. Wearing a blue t-shirt that said “Police Lives Matter, All Lives Matter,” Meredith was showing support for her hero husband who puts his life on the line daily, serving and protecting the “offended” clerk and the other citizens of Spring, Texas. However, the cashier didn’t like what she was advertising and kicked her out of the store, regardless of the fact that she’s not in charge of anything but her cash register.
Right after Meredith left the store, she let others know what happened to her there, including Kimberly Colley who is the executive director of the Blue Bow Foundation, which supports police officers and their families. Colley was disgusted by this employee’s actions, but more so by the complete lack of response on the matter from Kroger.
“Our husbands risk their lives every single time they put on those uniforms, they’re walking targets and this is the least we can do to show there is support out there,” Colley said, according to KMOV. She added that her non-profit group which used to support the store has cut off all ties with the retailer.
SERIOUSLY? Could this retarded liberal be anymore overly sensitive?!
This is now at least the second time a Kroger employee has disrespected police officers and/or their families. A worker at a Louisiana location refused to serve a cop, to top it off the store didn’t seem to care when it was brought to their attention.
Any business who disrespects police, especially when they go as far as to kick them out, doesn’t deserve the protection they provide when called upon.
The police force should have a blacklist of companies that go at the bottom of their totem pole when they call for help. Does anyone else think they should be forced to sort out tense situations for themselves?
I bet that after a few weeks of this, as well as a loss of customers who don’t feel safe shopping there, they will realize that the can’t rely on their “disgruntled” employees or Black Lives Matter to save them.
