Dear Asshole Drugstore Clerk

Posted on Wed, Oct 12, 2011 at 12:04 PM

I get that some youth like to steal things, and some of these youth are male. But just because me and my friends are male teenagers doesn't mean that you can follow us around your store. We're not stupid, we can see you peering down the aisles. I don't know why you think you can just spy on us while we browse, and I don't think you need to question our use of a cart. (We put food in it! It's what a fucking cart is made for.) It makes us fucking uncomfortable, and it is almost humorous how you do it. You can back off, because we're not going to steal anything. That would just conform to the stereotype about teenage boys that has already tainted your brain. —Suspect Teen
