#13, and perdix, because they have the best price on Sugar-Free Popsicles and other frozen confections, but I may fall into one or more of the aforementioned categories, although idiots and morons seldom use "aforementioned." ;) Oh, you forgot cheapskates!

That gives me an idea... I think I'll order a hundred thousand rounds of 9mm and 45acp to be shipped anonymously off the internet. I'll bet that brings plenty of people to my door to practice my mediocre social skills on.

She could have been buying bullets, a holster, a file, a meat cleaver, heavy-duty trash bags, bleach, a shovel, a flashlight, rope, duct tape, a map of the local woods, rubber gloves and an alibi.

I mean, if you're gonna go off the rails about how your randomly made-up constitutional right is being violated you'd at least pick one that less well-known. I'm damn British and I know the 2nd is the right 'bear arms' - and if 'arms' includes a longbow, a morningstar, and a ride-on cannon I'm in.

I think this is the first thread where commenters finally realized that she didn't actually know what she was talking about. Kudos to you. Everyone else is sitting here trying to figure out how it could've violated her 2nd amendment rights... *facepalm*

Yes, it's called Chronic Stupidity. Luckily I'm an expert at diagnosing this condition, and I'm sorry to say that you're exhibiting the early signs. I can treat you, but it's going to cost two bags of gummy worms and a packet of bacon. I'm not sure you can afford it.

But they could be fired for conducting themselves in a manner unfit for a service industry worker. It's the sad truth of the position, you take the crap so they give you the cheque. I agree that in theory it is justifiable self defense, but the unfortunate truth is you're being paid to put up the happy front in the face of animosity. In some cases companies even have simple contracts/agreements for service workers to sign along those lines.

True it's part of their job to put up with difficult people but not with physical abuse! Inflicting pain is never justifiable (unless it's self defense) ! I doubt that enduring physical pain or harm is part of OP's contract.

It's also not self defense unless there's a clearly apparent threat at the time of defense, if the customer simply slapped the OP and walked away, and was no longer a threat, they could be arrested themselves for going on the attack, both parties would be at fault. I agree wholly, It isn't part of their job to endure abuse, but it is their job without argument, to act professionally. There are always options like walking away, calling your manager, or just keeping your cool.

Well I wasn't suggesting for op to run after her and tackle her to the ground! Self defense is using some sort of force in the face of danger I know that. All I'm saying, IF op had reacted during the time of the slap it would've been counted as self defense. If it's true that an individual would've been fired for defending themselves (because i'm not sure how it works here in US) then they'll have to choose between walking away with their self esteem still attached and not ripped to shreds or keeping their job. I choose the first one but that's just in my opinion.

I'd feel more esteem in myself if I Kept my cool and could say that even though someone was completely out of line, I kept my professionality intact, and didn't bring my own dignity into question, in my opinion.

The customer is ALWAYS right... Until they are wrong. And as it stands even self defence can get you fired in a service job simply due to the "threat you put on the store and other customers". And it is unprofesional to talk back or act against a customer, you do not gi e the company money. The question becomes is your job worth losing your dignity by getting slapped around.

Did you scream that she violated several of your rights and call then police? I hate it when people claim a violation of their rights and then turn around and violate someone else's in the same breath.
