I was briefly detained at Walmart (I know, but I needed house-y stuff as well as groceries) for refusing to show my receipt to the bouncer at the door. A cashier, one security guard and two Sheriff's deputies got involved, all of whom claimed that I was required to show the receipt as requested, and I attracted a small group of on-lookers. "Look at that crazy white girl."
I'm sick of these stores making me prove to them that I paid for my merchandise. Showing a receipt is voluntary (unless you're at a store like Sam's where it's written into the membership agreement) and these poor employees are being instructed by their managers to treat their customers like thieves and to risk their own personal safety by detaining/obstructing people. I've had it!
