Just when you thought you had heard everything, then comes the insane and ridiculous. Our law enforcement officials work grueling schedules to protect and defend citizens they know nothing about and they deserve to be treated with respect.
This particular situation happened when a police officer was trying to buy balloons for a memorial ceremony in honor of another police officer killed during an off-duty incident. The employee at the store heard the balloons were for a cop and refused to help.
When I hear a story where an employee refuses to wait on or serve a police officer that’s almost like a slap in the face for the service that they do. I can’t believe some of these employees think they own the store and can make decisions based on their approval system.
I say train them on how to properly treat customers, then fire them so they will know how to react on their next job. Police officers are being killed by thugs on the street every day, so they don’t deserve this type of service from anyone.
A customer said a Party City employee refused to fill her balloon order after finding out it was for a police officer’s memorial ceremony.
Karly Lane told Channel 11 she went to Party City on Saturday to buy a dozen blue and black balloons for her friend, Duquesne officer Robert GoGo Jr., who died in an off-duty motorcycle accident almost a month ago.
Lane told the clerk that the balloons were for a memorial ceremony in GoGo’s honor. The clerk allegedly told Lane she refused to support a police officer and had someone else wait on her.
“How can you not support a police officer? It doesn’t matter. They don’t know my brother. They don’t know what kind of man he was. They don’t know what he did in his job. It just hurts,” GoGo’s sister Jennifer Martino.
Channel 11 reached out to the Party City and their corporate offices released this statement:
“Party City is committed to our customers and the community. Corporate management is looking into the matter to uncover what transpired and will take action accordingly.”
Channel 11’s Mike Holden contacted the manager at Party City who said, “We support all police officers,” and to follow up with corporate.
I am so done with all this crap. If you are a business and you serve the public, then serve the public or be fired or close up your shop. It’s that simple. All this hate and discrimination have got to stop! Enough already.
Common Sense Solution: Have the local police not show up when someone throws bricks or molotov cocktails through the store window or just get rid of the disgruntled employee.
If you were the owner of the store, how would you handle the situation? Would you fire the employee or develop some other discipline? Share your comments below.
