Today, I went to a store. I was wearing a shirt that I'd bought from the very same store, and was accused of stealing. When I tried explaining, the manager said I was lying because I'm a teenager and "all teenagers are full of shit." FML

PapaMoti tells us more.

Thanks for all the helpful comments! As to what happened next, security was called and we ended up looking at the camera footage which proved that I didn't steal the shirt. The manager was humiliated and apologized, but either way I am not going to be shopping from that store ever again.

Come back again with your receipt purchased?

What a presumptuous prick. What, is he bitter and jealous of the younger generation? Should've brought the receipt and humiliated him.

Along with a very strongly worded complaint for the manager!

And then laugh at him for good measure

Why should he prove his innocence?

#45 where is the manager's proof?

Psshhh screw that. Tell him to check the security cams that would have you on them entering with the t-shirt, and to get his head out of his ass!!!

Presumption of innocence, people: innocent until PROVEN guilty.

His proof is "they're a teenager"

Negative. Leave and don't come back. If they try to hold you then threaten to sue for depravation of liberty. Keyword, threaten. It's usually enough.

Ironically most teens are reading this on the toilet, so in a way he's right!

As a 38 year old I have had experience with similar situations. In the past I have simply looked at my accuser and said if I stole this call the police, all of which I do while walking out the door as I normally would. Io date I have not even been questioned by the police. Some ass hats should not work in retail.

I assume they lost a repeat customer then.

the manager is probably going to say that the receipt is fake

And that teenagers are full of shit.

If it is a typical store, just tell the manager to look at the camera footage when you entered the store.

He'll probably claim that the OP somehow faked that as well.

I say YDI because you should've just skipped being a teenager.

OPs name is just right, forget that particular store, or the least complain to the corporate headquarters if there are some.

If it's a chain, complain to the manager's boss. If not, just never shop there again and tell your friends to do the same. Let's see how well they do without all those lying teenagers.

Surely there is CCTV it can show entering wearing the shirt

Dunno how it is in Canada, but most of the "cameras" we have in stores here are just empty cardbox props to scare potential thieves.

Otherwise the shirt might look a bit worn or OP could perhaps have shown that she didn't have an other shirt with her, meaning that she should have walked in the store half naked if she had stolen the shirt. Either way I hope OP convinced them. A friend of mine once had the alarm go of when she walked out and she had the high heels that she bought there previously in her bag that caused the alarm, they actually believed her because they could see there was a bit of sand on the sole of the shoe meaning that they weren't a new pair she'd just stolen.

I wouldn't have given him the time of day. I'd have told him to go jam a fork into an electrical outlet

Insert toothpick under toenail and kick wall.

Or tea bag a bear trap

Maybe sit on a cactus

All at once.

Or insert fork in dick

Weird how these all got thumbs up until 73's comment.

Or step on a Lego....

Or paper cut that little hole in your penis that you pee out of

Apparently shop managers can be full of shit too.

Guy is such a fucking ignorant moron. Hopefully they have surveillance to show when you entered the store. Sorry OP.

Piss in the dressing rooms

Haha this made me laugh!! Good idea!!

14 - Sadly, the only person this would bother is the cashier that the manager sends to mop up.

Sneak into managers office, piss in coffee pot, profit?

This is where I'd mess with his head, run off or something. And if any trouble comes of it just dig out the receipt :)
