Couponer attacked by store manager

(WMC-TV) - An extreme couponer claims she was attacked at a dollar store when she said the manager refused to honor her coupons. The entire ordeal was caught on camera.

The sign at the store states coupons are accepted at Dollar Tree but a shopper is now nursing a busted lip and popped blood vessels in her eye after she says the manager refused to deal with her "wad of coupons". She said she was attacked while leaving the store.

Missy Monzo-Marte says she was shopping at the Dollar Tree in Germantown with a friend, both of whom belong to the DeSoto County Coupon Club.

Jennifer Hill says they had a similar run in with the same manager last week. Now, they want answers from corporate.

1. Managers believe they are in line for rewards

from the big pigs who employ them. Thus, the "heroic" and stupid actions against people just as economically disadvantaged as themselves. This kind of shit has gone on for decades, but has accellerated in the past few years.

Store manager: go to jail, and you'll find you're less employable than the woman you hit. She'll be your boss someday, as should always have been the case. You forgot the basic rule of society--treat others as you want to be treated. Yeah, some "golden rule" in there, too.

25. and coupons are redeemed by the "acceptor" ay face value + a percentage

so the stores do not lose out..

He may have been upset at the fact that the couponer (I used to do that before it was fashionable...back in the 70's...once got $1100.00 of stuff for about $25 ..made the paper too) cleaned him out of some items and that it may have sent other customers away because stuff they wanted was no longer available.

and he might have been worried that all the couponers would descend on his location and make ordering a nightmare for him..

no matter the reason,. he acted inappropriately.

3. Uff da! Somewhat an overreaction.

OTOH, being the next customer in line at the supermarket when a rabid couponer is ahead of you can be trying. I try to avoid such situations, but sometimes, they don't pull their filing cabinet full of coupons out until everything is rung up.

4. I sort of feel bad for the Manager

 

As much as people want to take the side of the extreme couponer I have ran into people like that at shopping places. The express lane is suppose to be for 20 items or less the lady with extreme coupons comes in with over 30 to 40. The store has a policy of not doubling down on coupons so the lady clearly had more items then the 20 item limit. What does the Cashier have to do stop his line and deal with the person. It's annoying! Having to wait behind these people because to them it is fun and games. If you have ever been a Cashier having to scan lots of coupons it is annoying even more so to wait behind them. There should be a limit on how much they can get away with coupons. I refuse to go to walmart because of the coupons and ad matches. I would be in line for hours because of these people without warning. I honestly wanted to go hostile once on them when I was in a hurry one day.

Maybe even Debit or Credit only.

People fishing around for a minute looking for that last seven cents when they have dollars is annoying as hell also.

56. Dollar General..

... often only HAS one checkout open so there is no easy solution for that.

If I were the manager AND there was a significant line (4 or more people) AND someone hit the checkout with a wad of coupons, I would either open another register if possible to deal with the coupons or I would ask the couponer if s/he would mind waiting until the line wound down somewhat. If s/he didn't want to wait I would tell everyone in the line that I was sorry but there would be a small delay.

Hitting or even yelling is not called for here.

7. I've never understood the whole extreme couponing concept...

To me, a coupon gives you 50 cents off, or 2 for the price of one, something like that.

What's this about having so many coupons you are paying almost nothing? I don't get it.

14. One example

When an item is buy 1 get 1 free they use a coupon for each item and take advantage of the double coupon deal that some stores do. So if a cereal is $4 and buy 1 get 1, they can use a $1 coupon for each box and get the coupon doubled equaling $4 in coupons.

31. Agreed -- it's like a hoarder mentality with a lot of those folks

Getting stuff just because they can, even when it's stuff they don't use and never will. And, in edition, they clean out items for other customers.

I don't agree with assaulting the woman, bu it sounds like she and her fellow Extreme Couponers are "regulars." I have done retail management, and it would be very frustrating, although there is no excuse for abusing a customer in any way.

41. I'll use the coupons they dispense on the aisle.

Or in racks at the front of the store.

Very....very rarely do I even look at newspaper coupons.

They are normally for processed overpriced crap I generally don't buy.

But I did....just happen to spot one coupon In a flyer for Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breast...and they were On Sale.

We do love those over processed stuffed chicken breasts the way they do it.

15. It is not so much the work, but the time

 

You have to understand some of these people who do the coupons are nuts. They will fight any price difference that comes up, try to call a manager over when there is a problem with something, and yell at you if you do not take the ads. I feel sorry for the Cashiers because it is all put on them and stresses their job out even more. The Walmart cashiers I feel really bad. Everytime I used to get behind one of those people in line they were rude to the costumers behind and yelling at the Cashier who was trying to do his/her job. Plus the lockouts on the machines. I saw one person with 4 carts go through the line nothing but smalls. It's crazy my advise on how to avoid a line with these people is if you see a lot of ad papers GO TO A DIFFERENT LINE. If you see smalls in there carts that do not make sense run to another line. You can be hours waiting for these people when the person behinds them only has one or two items. It's scary how rude they can get.

29. In the 70's when I was couponing, I would go to the manager BEFORE I shopped

and would tell them about how many carts I would have...He would usually be the one to open a separate checkstand and would check me out himself.. No "funny-business"..just hours and hours of real work putting the list together and lots of postage spent sending for the special offer coupons.. and much of it was donated..

38. I have one horror story of a african american lady using false coupons

 

She kept buying drinks at the discount ad matching of another store and then when the Cashier was having trouble she jumped on the cashier neck. The cashier had to call a manager over just to deal with the coupons because it was to many and they were false coupons. Turns out someone had created a set to look real that were printed coupons. Half of them wouldn't scan as well. She just kept pulling them out making go through all the coupons. Finally the Cashier just gave up. You could tell it on the Cashier face. The worse part is could hear the Cashier telling the Manager he/she was suppose to be gone 1 hour ago.

Once you go over the limit.

Ten items: normal price.
Eleven: 2% added to your bill.
Twelve: 5%
Thirteen: 10%
And so on.
If you're in a hurry pay extra. If not use the proper lane.

11. What's really sad is that you save more by getting store brands than using coupons.

 

I admit to using coupons, but only for products I prefer the brand name over the store brand or other brand. I've done the math. Even with double coupons it's usually more expensive to get the advertised brand. The in-store sales save you a lot more money. Extreme couponing is like meth - keep going and get more addicted. You won't get anywhere.

It's not an over-generalization - it's simple math. I've done almost all of the grocery shopping for 30 years and it holds true. I'll admit I like Campbell's cream-of soups, Progresso soups, Tabasco, and a few other brands, but for the most part I go all store brand (or lesser known brand) because they're less expensive and are the same damn thing.

23. I am amazed by some of the comments here!

First of all the manager needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law! In no way did she have the right to assault that woman. As far as coupon users taking a lot more time to check out, well, the cashiers are paid an hourly wage so what does it matter if servicing that particular customer takes longer? They have to be there anyway. As to other customers behind them there may be a grip there. I make sure that I go to the express lanes if I`m in a big hurry and usually get through very quickly otherwise I just figure that it takes as long as it takes. I have used coupons and saved lots of money but I`m not rude about it and if I see someone behind me with one or two items I just let them go ahead of me. This is just common courtesy. I hope some store manager does not decide that it would be a good idea to assault me over it. Too much!

And what appears to be a problem customer/group. However, having worked retail management, you can't hit customers.

I don't think feeling a bit of empathy for the manager translates to thinking it's okay to hit a customer.

If the manager does not want to deal with customers maybe she should get a different job. How anyone can even excuse this behavior in the slightest with something close to, well these people are hard to deal with, is beyond me. If you work in any type of service industry you will have to deal with people that will irritate you. And yes I have had to deal with obnoxious customers in my past working life.

47. This is what the Republicans have done

Make a store manager believe she needs to defend the profits of the rich who run the company.

It's sad really. She really believes she's helping herself by denying the use of a coupon, when she would really only benefit the top of the company.

50. the profits of that store

directly affect the manager's bottom line ... i would wager dollars to doughnuts that the manager gets a bonus based on said profit. the manager was protecting no one's 'profits' but his/her own.

51. That's even sadder

What would she get, a 1% cut of the money on the sales for that month?

You can't seriously think she's reap in all the profits on a sale.

Edit: And there's no way she's even come close to 1% of the monthly profits. Not going to happen.

52. and you can seriously read into a post

"You can't seriously think she's reap in all the profits on a sale."

Is that anywhere CLOSE to what I said? I don't think so... let's make sure to pay a little closer attention.

In response to your edit ... no shit. that's YOUR statement, not mine. you're just making stuff up ... to what end? i have no clue.

55. That's EXACTLY what you said

She's in it to help herself is what you said. I disagree and take the stance she's made to believe it's in her best interests to deny coupons.

58. you're post is full of shit

i never said anything about getting 'all the profit' (your words) or even about '1%'... once again, you're words (well, number in this case). but just about every retail manager in the FUCKING WORLD is bonused on sales. and i can just about guarantee this one is as well.

she was protecting herself... not the store.

thanks for making shit up and making it easy to shoot down you're crap.

61. The fact

That she even needs to "protect herself" is what is complete shit.

She's not working hard for herself, she's working hard for the people running the company. They profit way more than she does for her ridiculous actions.

It's not my fault or hers that this country is too fucked up to the point where rich company owners dangle the carrot in front of their managers faces for them to chase.

She should be compensated enough not to have to try and deny someone's coupons.

67. perhaps that's what you're doing instead of actually reading...

you got called for putting words in my posts and then decided that line wasn't working for you and then you jump on the 'workers of the world unite' post to try to shift the argument... into something i don't disagree with. she should be paid a proper wage. i don't agree that a bonus is something bad like you seem to. bonuses can be a great motivator and reward to someone who goes above and beyond.

68. Right

Just like treats for dogs are motivation for them to be good and sit and roll over on command.

70. Not sure how you don't recognize the parallel

Be good deny coupons = get some more money (treats)

Sit and roll over = get some more treats

71. The store probably profits just as much on manufacturer's coupons as it does cash

I'd be willing to bet that the manager just didn't want to deal with hundreds of coupons on a regular basis. Have you ever seen the extreme couponer show? There can be hundreds of items and hundreds of coupons, registers locking up from overload, and calls to to district headquarters. The process can take hours.

It doesn't justify the manger's actions and it was especially stupid of her considering there was a camera rolling, but I can see how if you catch the wrong person on the wrong day something like that could happen.
