Small business, big mouths

Posted By on Thu, Aug 17, 2017 at 11:00 AM

I'm sure it gets boring behind the counter of a small store, and maybe you hadn't seen your buddy in ages. Regardless, if someone you don't know comes in the store it would make good sense not to shit all over another independent business, especially when you don't know if that 'new' customer in your store has know the business owner you're saying rips people off and is a general asshole for almost 20 years. I hovered close to you and your bud while you dumped on the guy. One of my greatest flaws is that I can't keep my feelings off my face—even your 60+ eyes had to see my eye-rolling when I was by the cash looking at items behind your friend, planted in place like a statue in need of removal. There's nothing sadder than 60-something men gossiping about other small business owners, basically calling them scammers and failures. Had the actual owner of your been in she would have turned her attention to the only paying customer in the store, and wouldn't have been gossiping in the first place; sadly it was two geezers who couldn't care less who was there, who they might know, or what they wanted.  The customer service sucked, but hearing two silver-haired men tearing apart another small independent business owner was  well beyond pathetic. Easy to see  who deserves my money and who doesn’t. —Not My Typewriter
