Please do return them.Every business that required masks AT ALL, EVER should suffer the consequences of participating in totalitarianism.They will whine that they were "just following orders".Fuck that. Buy stuff and return it, over and over and over.
Nazi REI is still a great place to buy brown shirts.
Today I walked into a store, bought what I needed, and somehow managed to feel victimized.
Patrick saysyou were indeed victimized.I see no victims here, only volunteers. Buying shoes in a store is voluntary.
you were indeed victimized.
just_passing_through saysWe have a new lefty trolly troll!Personal responsibility used to be a foundational conservative principle.

I don't understand what you are talking about
I'm returning these damn shoes in two months after I've worn them to shreds due to REI reconfirming my thoughts that they were Nazis.
So you would be OK with store not serving black, Asian, or white customers? If they don't like racial discrimination, they might as well go somewhere else, as buying shoes is voluntary.
Patrick saysBut being forced to wear a mask was mandatory.He didn't wear a mask. He walked in, purchased shoes, and left. Where is the victimization?I practice personal responsibility. If I disagree with store policy, I simply go elsewhere.
But being forced to wear a mask was mandatory.
Either way, they have guilt for "just following orders"" or for overtly discriminating on the basis of one's vaccination status.
I know Fallopia was being sarcastic, but I really do feel uncomfortable every time I go into any store or restaurant that used to require a mask. I think it's because I sacrificed a little bit of my dignity each time I did it. It certainly gives me a negative feeling about everyone who works at these places. But no one physically put a mask on my face, I did make the choice every time. And now I'm feeling in a bad way about it.But I don't have to shop at those stores. I don't have to live in a state that practiced those policies(not every state and country did). And if it wasn't for my family, I'd be living even further out in nature, and somewhere that respects my human rights and dignity. But I don't, I live here, and I can definitely relate to joshuatrio's experience.
richwicks sayswhy the fuck would I want to give money to an asshole? What? Am I fucking stupid?EXACTLY. We have choices.The OP sold himself out and bent over for nothing more than a pair of shoes, then cries about it.
why the fuck would I want to give money to an asshole? What? Am I fucking stupid?
also deeply resent Peets and Trader Joe's now, places I used to like before they became mask-enforcers for the whole virus fraud.
I don't understand what you are talking about. The OP walked into a store, purchased shoes, and left without incident. Where is the victimization?
Patrick saysYou're missing the point.No, I am not missing the point. You are.People WANT to feel like victims. They LIKE to feel victimized by Biden, Trump, Dr. Fauci, China, Raffensperger, AOC, MTG, REI, Gavin Newsom, COVID, Deep State, Kalifornia, Republicans, Democrats, Google, Facebook, and a ever growing plethora of villains. This thread is a perfect example. The OP walked in, purchased his shoes without a single incident, yet managed to feel victimized. There is something wrong here.

I generally refuse to support REI. But, they had the shoes I needed for a hiking trip
Planning to wear the shoes out then return them is nothing but a low-level, petty revenge fantasy. Revenge fantasies pair well with a victim mentality.
input into store policies
joshuatrio saysI generally refuse to support REI. But, they had the shoes I needed for a hiking tripSo, instead of going to a competitor or making your own damn shoes like the self-made-and-sufficient man Republicans love to larp as, you're entering a business you dislike, acting belligerent with the store level employees who have zero control or input into store policies, for the express purpose of taking something you want and need with deliberate intent to abuse the return policy in a manner tantamount to stealing?But booooy, do loudly hypocritical Republicans hate being called out as deplorables!
Fine that he didn't, but you're not standing on solid ground by running back to the victim shit. No one is claiming they're a victim in this story. Pointed out an illegal request from a business by the sign on the front door. Then complained about the employees because it was likely they thought or believed he wasn't vaccinated. Precisely like you keep calling him a victim. He's never complained he was wronged and only had to use REI because of time constraints. This isn't complicated. It's perfectly okay to bitch about a business even if you involuntarily have to use them. You kind of sound like the victim in this thread, that's for sure.
Time is money.
He just wants attention and to troll. Employees had no idea if I had the shot or not. They were just typical hipster, leftists who treated others like shit. It's been so long since I'd been around negative people like that, I then realized I would never set foot in that store again.
This. Flat outta time.
If I can click a button and get something 2 days later where I'm at, that's what I'm doing.
Yes...its a private business...they can do what they want. Anytime i feel that i'm not treated well in any place of business, i just dont go back. And I tell my friends. Why make a big deal about it? Why do people put up with those doormen at nightclubs that only let certain people in? Is there a difference between the rights to enter a nightclub and the rights to enter a shoestore?
Agreed, but there should be consistency
I would like to add my inflation adjusted 41/2 cents for the falling purchasing power of the dollar . I think a lot is being read into this post .I haven’t worn a mask in months ( outside of going into a restaurant cooking area) most all stores I’ve seen still have the mask and maintain distance that for whatever reason is still on nearly every store but not required in no case has any retail store require vac .Simply put this guy is full of shi* Since he lied about that and he felt the need to quiz the cashier about policies he already knows ,we are taking for granite that the cashier was arrogant but when I read his post this guy is the one who is arrogant and it’s reflected upon his comment about the person who was helping him find his shoes as well .This clown thinks he’s all cool by returning the shoes after he’s worn them .What we’re all missing here is he in fact iss ripping off the system by taking advantage of the stores return policy it hurts the manufacturer ( unless R...
I'd encourage you to read everything I wrote and what others have written, before posting such nonsense.
