I stopped to chat with them, and as we were chatting, some guy pulled up in his p/u truck, jumped out, and showed them his receipt. My firend and his co-worker began to load the flooring in the guys truck.

The guy was watching them, then turned to me , and said "are you just going to stand there, or are you going to help load my truck?" I replied that if he had asked nicely, I would have helped him, but since you acted like a prick, I'll just watch. He then replied "Who do you think you are?" I'll go inside and report you to the manager!" I replied, I'll do you one better, and walk you in by the hand asshole, and we'll look for the manager together.

By that time, my friend and his co-worker, who had both stopped loading the guys truck, were watching and listening to the exchange. My friend then leaned over and told the guy that I did not work there. I said to the guy "bet you feel like a bigger dickhead than you appear to be." He put his head down, helped load the truck, and drove away without saying another word, or looking up.


I will admit this story is kind of funny, but I have to be honest, if you spoke to me like that I would not care what mistake I might have made, you would have gotten a serious ass kicking and I would not care how big you might be.

There is a difference being in a funny/awkward situation and having fun with it and taking to the level that you did.

You need to take it down a few notches.

Honesty is it's own reward. I try being honest, but sometimes I'm not, to be honest.

It is a funny story...

I don't like people with attitude...

The guy could have asked to his friends if he could give them a hand and the all drama would have avoided.. ...

Well done...

People can sometimes be quite belligerent. There were times when I've been asked by a random person to help them, sometimes quite rudely. On occasions when one responds politely, they expect more and get angry when politely declined. And ironically, when they are confronted with the fact that you do not work at said establishment, they tend to walk away in a huff, rather than apologize. Although on one occasion, my then-girlfriend (now wife) snarked at a guy's girlfriend that she should perhaps find a better dressed man, when she pestered me even after realizing that I did not work at the store. Then again, now that I think about it, we were on our way to a party to pick up a gift, so we were rather nicely dressed (black tie + cocktail dress).

That's when I often say, "You're welcome" ... or ... "Sorry to have interrupted you." I say it sufficiently loud for them to hear. Not that it will change anything in the long run.

But typically I find that on those rare occasions when I'm mistaken for an employee and I politely explain that I am not, people are apologitical.

I never had the guts not to tell them I wasn't working there and advising the guy on the worse combo on offer...

As I wear a lot of navy blue suits ,I tend to get that a lot in England...

Next time ,I will do it or say that sales will be on in a week time with 70% discount on everything.

We both would risk getting collared.

If a person wants to act like the way he did by calling a person profanities and generally escalating the situation when all he had to say in the first place was that he did not work there, then he is the one also taking a risk.

Then if he gets whats coming to him and then decides to call his mommy (cops) because "the big mean man hurt me just because I called him and asshole and a prick and a dickhead" then I guess he should have kept his wise mouth shut in the first place.

Calling the cops after you get what you deserve is for pussies.

It is all those Allen Edmonds' "Seconds" bought on sale.

Well, RSS, to channel Vox, evidently you get the TC (Houston) and olddog/trix pass for being being old.

Yet another itoughguy. I think if anyone needs to take it down a few notches it's you, Mr. Soprano.

Being old has its priviledges.
