I used to be a regular customer of "Dollar Joe" as I will reference Dollar General Stores in this review. I become increasingly Pissed Off at the way they would follow me around the store to make sure that I wasn't going to rip anything off.
I don't like to leave my backpack at the front of the store, because then someone could rip it off and i often have valuable stuff that I have purchased from other stores inside. I don't think that Dollar Joe is representative of a Dollar Store. I think that they are representative of a store that is disrespectful of it's regular customers, and I think that the atmosphere of their stores is gross and icky. I used to a Homeless Person who lived out in the bush and under bridges.
i was not your "General homeless" person who is all stinky and rude and filthy, but I was always very clean and would shower at a campground everyday that I would pay for and I would do my laundry every single day and was always clean and smelled great and never acted rude to anyone, not like rude Dollar Joe Employees. Everyone would tell me that I didn't look like I was homeless, and that the only thing that gave me away was the bedroll that I was carrying around with me and my backpack. Dollar joe employees treat me like I am there to steal, simply because I am wearing a backpack. The backpack is so that I can easily carry all of the crap that I am planning to buy from their stores in.
I think that these Dollar joe emplyees that treat me like that I am there to steal are acting more like General Homeless Employees, because their behavior and attitudes stink and they are rude and their stores are icky and filthy. So, once again, i tell you, I Ain't goin' Back to yo Sto No Mo, Dollar joe!
