Today is 7-Eleven’s annual free slurpee day, a day that should be fun for our children but instead has turned into a lesson on treat others how you want to be treated. As my kids and I walked into 711 we noticed the line was huge and it was going to be a wait. The kids didn’t mind, that is of course until we witnessed a disgruntled customer dump his free slurpee on top of the employees head who was pouring them for approximately 20-30 customers!
It all went so fast and I think I was in disbelief and shock. WHO does that. Who is that disrespectful and mean. As I watched who I think was either the manger or their security person grab the guy by his shirt and pull him to the front of the store I listened to what he had to say.
” Let me go, I’m leaving. She got slurpee on my face, I had to wait 30 minutes to get my slurpee. she wasn’t being careful, she got it on my face” dang now I don’t even get my free slurpee”
And I loved what the lady said to him. I don’t condone violence but man he really deserved it.
” If you try to leave I will punch you in the face, I swear it. Do not move! “
I left before the police arrived. I feel like it took the police a long time to get there. I was in the store approximately 15 minutes after the incident and they still were not there. I watched the lady call the police so I know they were on their way, but I do not understand how it could possibly take that long when the station is literally around the corner from this particular 7-Eleven. I mean what exactly are we paying these guys for? Just sayin…
As this went down I have to admit I did think about taking the guys photo to post all over my blog and fan pages to teach this guy a lesson. I mean had I done that he surely wouldn’t be walking around Vancouver, WA without consequences. I didn’t but boy did I want to. My phone was burning a red hot hole in my purse as this went down. In the end I decided I wouldn’t take that photo. For one thing could I be sued? And another, I had my kids with me so I was really trying to be cool as a cucumber when inside I really wanted to punch the guy in the face to.
