Re: “Police Dispatch

They should've explained that you cannot get the free bag if you do not participate, accepted the cash payment, sold you the food and moved on. If you wanted to not participate the only consequence should've been losing out on the free bag. The fact that you have done it one way in the past does not preclude the business from changing the way they operate, especially when it comes to free bags of food, which they probably have had issues with people gaming them on.

I suspect your role in this escalation was probably more than what you write, cameras usually do not capture audio so the cameras won't prove anything in any way. In the end it is 3 employees word against yours. Comport yourself better in the future and recognize that if you do not agree with their business strategy ask kindly for a manager to explain the changes to you or you can take your business elsewhere. Fighting with low wage employees makes you the ass.

No, a cash paying customer should not have to give their name. If I owned that business, those 3 would be fired.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Good for him. Businesses are entitled to set rules and if you want to refuse to comply they are within their rights to refuse you service. And that type of language has no place in society. Had you been reasonable they could have explained the benefits afforded you through their computerized history software.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I may be on your Police Dispatch next week. TPD may be looking for me after the manager of the Pet Club Tucson told me to "GET OUT OF MY STORE!", and called the police when I refused to do so.

At 9:15 this morning, I had just enough time to stop there and pick up a bag of dog food before meeting friends for breakfast at Robert's. I've been buying her food there or at the Broadway store for years because Wonderdog has allergies and needs grain-free (read: expensive) food and I'm kind of locked into buying it from PC because after you buy 10 bags, your 11th bag is free, and I'm into my 6th bag an the way to my free one.

I brought the bag of AvoDerm up to the counter, held out my $60.00 cash and the cashier asked me for my name. I told him, "No, it's OK. I'm paying cash." He said he still needs my name for "the system", but I told him again that I'm paying cash and I'll just hang onto the receipt for when I bring the others in to get my free bag. He said something like it doesn't work that way ( despite my doing it that way for YEARS!) and, again, I told him I'm just paying cash. He refused, at which point I said loudly, "This is fucking BULLSHIT!", at which time he made the managerial decision to insist that I leave.

(If you don't believe any of this, there's a camera right above the entrance door for just such situations when we 'troublemakers' want to spend cash at Pet Club.)

So what does a person do here, except to say, "No." That was the point at which he said he'll call the police and have me ejected. Now, I don't know if he did actually call them, but he appeared to be talking to somebody who was asking him questions about the situation and about me. (I helped him with my correct age when he estimated too low.)

After some verbal badinage between me and 3 employees, I simply ran out of time in order to get to my appointment on time, and decided to leave, with the manager calling me a coward several times for not engaging him in a fight. (REALLY- this is all on their video!) He even followed me outside, calling me a coward again and recording me and my license plate.

Does he have a name and address? Are we talking the large Guyamas blue shrimp, or the ones like the picture? Is he open Saturdays?

Re: “Police Dispatch

Charmin bears don't have these problems. Everything is clean and fresh in their world. Everything put in their toilets goes down, ESPECIALLY when Charmin ass wipe is involved. The Charmin marketing department has made sure of this.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Wow! The power of American marketers is amazing. The whole time I read this article, all I could think of was the Charmin bears in place of the humans playing out this tawdry tale of toilet troubles.

Re: “Police Dispatch

IF, the Cop documented the intersection in that way, it's grounds for the ticket to be dismissed. No mention of alcohol but the kid did the right thing by saying nothing and I recommend you do the same. They only ask the question for self incrimination.

Always, and I mean always, roll down your windows the second you see those blue lights. They count on that big whiff when they approach and you wait to roll down the window causing the difference of pressure to blast them with "evidence" right up the nose. "No sir officer, I don't think you could mistake the smell of alcohol with my cologne so I won't be moving or answering any other questions without a lawyer present." *crickets*

Mari, can you please straighten out your possible oversights on this one and the "San" typo. Is there a difference between the print and electronic version?

This is the new and improved TW. What any Tucsonan should know need not apply.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Where does Campbell intersect with 6th AVENUE? I thought they both ran north-south? Did he screech to a stop at the North Pole?

Or perhaps it was 6th STREET--a difference any Tucsonan should know.

If he "peeled out" at about 90-100 MPH, that is one hell of a Camaro.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Unpleasant, but it seems to me that the woman most likely was not a danger to herself or others. I've heard worse in New York. I wonder whether "disturbing the peace" charges are easily misused to arrest people who are not really doing much of anything dangerous and keep idle cops occupied.

Is he now on the no fly list? Do we have a no drive list? How about a no beer list? No tool? No machete?

I now understand Obama's plan for job creation. Government jobs watching watch lists.

"Once a great nation." Now, not so much.
