Why does a Sears floor manager need a gun? Simple, HE DOESN'T.
I have only been in the local Sears a handful of times, and everytime I had been pretty dissapointed. This last time, however, was quite disturbing.
I had only run in to get a SD card for my camera, which were on sale that week. I get up to the cashier, and he charges me TRIPLE the original price! I argued with him for sometime, and about 10 minutes later, the floor manager wanders up. He asked if there is a problem, and I pointed out the error. He sternly told me that that would be the price I would be paying, and that even though I had the flyer with the sales price, and even wasted my time to go back and get the sign that says the price, he would not be giving me that price.
By this point, I was peeved. So I finally tell him that I was done talking to him, and wanted to speak to the store manager. He 'subtlely' puts his hand on his waist, revealing the handle to a handgun under his vest. He then tells me that I would need to calm down, or he'd have to escort me off the premises. I wasn't even yelling! I barely even had an angry face on! So I told him to **** off, and void the order. I was done, and ended up sending a letter to corporate about my expierence. They responded with 'We are not responsible with employee actions, but will look into this matter'
I still see the floor manager outside Sears everytime I pass.
