    you're lying again Bob, as I've said nothing about govt. or govt. stepping in.

    The point that I think keeps getting missed is that, from the way the story was written, she wasn't expecting special treatment, she just asked for it. The manager could just as easily given her a job working in the produce section or stocking isles or working the customer service desk.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No customer was denied anything; they were just asked politely to use a different line.

    In any case, that's between the store and the customer.

    Like I said, they have every right to grant it. I'm arguing against the concept.

    well, I guess "the customer is always right", is now in the toilet.

    stores exist to sell people stuff.

    if you make it harder for folks to buy things, they will shop elsewhere.

    How is the customer wrong?

    stores exist to sell people stuff.

    Then that's the risk they take. It needn't concern you.

    Uppity?

    She wasn't expecting special treatment. As an employee she asked her employer for something and it was granted.

    Perhaps you should explain your reasons behind the use of the word uppity here........

    I have no problem with the stores actions. My question is, how long will it be before the push to enshrine this in federal law shows up?

    It's functionally no different than an express lane with a limit to the number of items.
