I walked out of a convenience store last night (UPDATED)

Last edited Sun May 3, 2020, 02:52 PM - Edit history (2)

I ran in to get some pop after buying gas. I was wearing a mask.

The cashier was wearing neither mask nor gloves. He gave me a condescending look.

As I approached him, I noticed a sign taped to the wall behind him saying, "NO MASKS REQUIRED. THIS IS A NO-FEAR ZONE." This despite the fact that both the state governor and local city council have issued mask orders. I put the pop down and walked out.

I'm thinking of contacting the national chain office to let them know what one of their franchises is doing.

Additional note: this was in Illinois. Strictly speaking, the governor's order doesn't specifically require wearing masks in stores. It requires wearing them if maintaining social distance is not possible. Which would be true for pretty much any convenience store.

UPDATE: This particular store isn't very close to where I am in Illinois. (I'm not a full-time IL resident, but for a couple of reasons, I've been here for most of the pandemic.) But I thought that if I were to contact someone about this, photographic evidence would be useful - so I went back to get some.

Long story short - neither the sign nor the idiot behind the cash register was present. I'm not the only person who saw them, nor am I the only one to have had a problem with either. Turns out, this wasn't the policy of the local franchise. It was entirely on the single late-night staff member, who is evidently now a former employee. He was one of the don't tread on me, and don't stop me from treading on you types, and the store had gotten complaints about him before, mostly for running his mouth at people who really didn't care what he thought of the current state of affairs.

5. Many convenience stores are locally owned franchises -

with little connection to the national chain other than permission to use their name.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try - just don't be surprised if they tell you it is out of their control.

Some are not much more than the right to use the name for a fee with restrictions that tend to be related to misuse of trade name and trade dress.

i dont think they print an nyc phone book any more, but that's about what their contracts are like.

also went to school w a guy who flipped burgers at 16 in one of the first mickey's stores. saw him a few years ago. never worked for anyone else, owns 23 franchises in ariz, and is a very, very, very rich man.
that only happens in a corp that sees the whole picture.

If the national chain has any kind of stipulation in their franchise agreement about following state & local health guidelines and the chain's policies (as they most likely would), they've got leverage.

They absolutely can tell them they ahve to abide by state and local orders, laws, and policies. Period. They can yank the franchise for that. At the very least, they can come and take all the signs down, including gas pump signs.

17. Nothing you are saying disputes the obsservation I shared

from my professional experience both as a tax professional and as an attorney who has worked with convenience stores. Many such agreements impose very few requirements in exchange for the right to use the name.

You are absolutely right that IF what they are doing violates the law - AND - if their contract with the franchise requires it - they can have their franchise yanked.

I never said otherwise. What I said was that from my experience of working with such agreements in a professional capacity - many (specifically convenience stores) impose very few restrictions.

If the restrictions aren't there in the first place, there's nothing the franchise can do.

30. They also have to abide by local

and state laws. Report this to city AND state officials.

A local CVS employee told me that she is not allowed to tell a customer without a mask to leave. This is in NY state, where Cuomo has publicly said that businesses serving the public are entitled to turn away people who come in without masks. The employee told me that management is concerned that if they turn away someone without a mask, the person might start a FB campaign against the store in retaliation.

6. Absolutely you should call the national chain office and complain with....

....all the specifics that you can use. Time, place and date for sure. Maybe call the store in question and talk to the manager first to see if it's his initiative to post that sign first, and not just one of his idiot employees. But if he's on board I'd make sure to mention his name.

The second: "Me staying at home when (my state) re-opens. In chess, the pawns go first."

42. What if one isn't afraid for oneself but rather for someone of fragile health that they take care

of or just live with?

For example my sister's husband has serious COPD (and no, he never smoked), and is elderly, and she worries a lot about infecting him.

What if the fearless person doesn't want to put someone else that they might infect through this?

https://www.propublica.org/article/a-medical-worker-describes--terrifying-lung-failure-from-covid19-even-in-his-young-patients
... The ventilator should have been doing the work of breathing but he was still gasping for air, moving his mouth, moving his body, struggling. We had to restrain him. With all the coronavirus patients, weíve had to restrain them. They really hyperventilate, really struggle to breathe. When youíre in that mindstate of struggling to breathe and delirious with fever, you donít know when someone is trying to help you, so youíll try to rip the breathing tube out because you feel it is choking you, but you are drowning.


Sorry about this, I don't like posting it. But if a few more people are extra careful as a result of reading this, and if consequently it spares one or two people from ending up in this situation, then I will be very gratified. I know it's affected how much risk I'm willing to take. Not just for myself, but for others I might infect.

Too many people assume they will be pretty much knocked out with drugs, so won't be that bad, ... may not be a good assumption.

They won't be happy to learn that their employees are so off-putting to customers and so inconsiderate that they won't be responsible to the public and wear a mask, just out of sheer courtesy and consideration of others if NOTHING else, that the chain is going to LOSE CUSTOMERS.

They really don't want YOU, anyway. They want YOUR MONEY. Which, don't forget, comes in through their door in YOUR pocket, and is transferred from YOUR pocket or wallet into THEIR cash register. THEY'RE the ones who should be showing respect.

They need to know this. Definitely and even more definitely!

49. Walking out, and notifying the national chain is the best way to handle it.

They may be fear free, but they are also intelligence free.
They are risking their health and the health of their customers.
It's only a matter of time before the people who work in that store contract the virus, if they haven't already.
Non-protected customers will probably get the virus also, and the cycle of transmission continues.
At this point, I consider that kind of brainless response to the situation to be a sort of natural selection process. Unfortunately, innocent people are subject to their idiocy.
Hearing these kind of reports, and seeing unprotected people mixing with large numbers of other unprotected people in public places tells me the second wave will be ramping up in a month or so.

And so it continues.

61. Convenience store franchise....

The last bastion of free wheeling capitalism, rugged individualism, the Marlboro men of commerce.

64. A lesson to learn I suppose

We should't assume that just because something is going on at a business that the business is the problem. It might just be that one asshole working at that moment.

On the bright side, atleast this guy won't have to worry about being forced to wear a mask at work. lol

75. I just hope this numbnut doesn't have kids.

Not so happy for them if he does. Their father is no longer merely a right-wing nutjob; he's now an unemployed right-wing nutjob.

(Why someone would act in a way more or less guaranteed to end with "your services are no longer required" when so many businesses are shuttered defies explanation.)
