A customer came in today trying to buy a few hundred dollars worth of electronics. He and his buddy smelled of alcohol enough to be able to smell it a few feet back. A new employee was ringing them up as I approached them at the register. The guys credit card would not go through and so they left with empty hands and a bad attitude. I'm not sure if the new employee had checked his ID to match with his card or not. Later in the evening, when I was about to go clock out, the guy returns with a different friend than the first. This time he was trying to buy a laptop. A different employee was helping them out but came to m e and asked if I would help them. I walked up to them and the original guy was on his phone so I stood by. He then asked me if there was a problem in a manor like I was suspicious or something. I replied with no, that I was just there to help him. After he finally decided what he was getting, I retrieved the item and took it to the register to ring him up. As he attempted to swipe his card, I asked him for ID. He gave a very pissed off look and claimed he didn't have it with him. I politely stated that I needed ID to complete the sale. Now he got angry so I called for a manager. While we wait for the manager, who by the way never showed even after a third time calling for them, the guy is cussing at me, getting racial, threatening me and saying that I was accusing him of trying to steal. As this was happening, my adrenaline is up and I never took my eyes off of him. Since the manager never showed, they finally decided to walk off. Now its past my time to get off so I cancled the transaction, put the laptop back and went to clock out. But I was pretty nervous not knowing if he was still out in the parking lot waiting for me. After all he did threaten me. As I walked out I kept aware of all my surroundings. Fortunantly he wasn't there, but who knows. If he is really that pissed, he knows where I work. This wasn't the first time that I have been threated for doing my job. And that is why I carry at work.
