Man ticketed after 'fat and ugly' barb
UPI ^ | 8/19/2010

Posted on 08/19/2010 3:18:03 PM PDT by markomalley

SAUKVILLE, Wis., Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Police in a Wisconsin town said they issued a $429 ticket to a man who allegedly told a fellow grocery store customer she was "ugly and fat."

Saukville police said the woman was shopping at the Piggly Wiggly and obtained permission from a clerk to use the express checkout lane, despite having more than 10 items, Milwaukee's WTMJ-AM reported Thursday.

However, another customer expressed displeasure at the woman being allowed to skirt the item limit.

"The female subject, the complainant, then turned back toward the man (and said) 'I got permission here. Is there a problem?' That's when the person said to her, 'Yeah, the problem is that you're ugly and fat,'" officer Barry Effinger said.

Effinger said the man allegedly continued to harass the woman until she called police.

The man, who Effinger said has a history of anger problems, was issued a citation for $429.

Such a feminine way to describe a person who speaks unpleasant truths. Another: "that was inappropriate".

Feelings

By Morris Albert

Feelings, nothing more than feelings
Trying to forget my feelings of love
Teardrops rolling down on my face
Trying to forget my feelings of love

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it
I wish I've never met you, girl
You'll never come again
Feeling, woo-o-o feeling
Woo-o-o, feel you again in my arms

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you again in my heart

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you again in my life

Feelings, woo-o-o feeling it,
woo-o-o, feeling again in my arms
Feelings

BTW, beauty and fatness is SUBJECTIVE.

Piggly Wiggly is a good place for her to work!

Perhaps she is a walking, talking advertizement?

If the employees said they would ring up the woman’s purchase, another customer should just shut up or shop somewhere else. Ideally, the (allegedly) fat woman should have kept silent, paid for her groceries, and left. Who cares what trash think or say? Scrape ‘em off your shoe and move on, honey.

I’d like to know what law this guy actually broke to warrant a ticket. 1st amendment mean anything to these stupid cops? The guy was rude, but the last time I looked it wasn’t against the law to be rude to someone. I wonder if the “fat and ugly” woman knows the cop in question?

The guy was an incredible jerk. I doubt anyone would appreciate having their mother, sister or wife endure this lowlife’s harassment. I wish the cop had punched him in his snout and given him the ticket.

It’s hard to find a “good guy” in this story. Guy gets worked up and rude and apparently continues to verbally assault another customer in the checkout line at a grocery store. (Employee should have called a manager to deal with the situation or at the very least tried to diffuse the situation.) Woman overreacts by calling 911 to report being insulted. Cop writes a “disorderly conduct” ticket for the guy (but apparently does not write up the woman for using 911 for a non-emergency call).

So if I happen to be in that town and a woman comes up to me and asks, “Does this dress make me look fat?” and I reply, “It’s not the dress, but the fat that makes you look fat.” does that qualify me for a $429 ticket, also?

Since when can you get fined for stating an opinion?

D’oh! I just remembered that Nazi Pelosi is wanting to investigate any dissenters of the mosque. That probably now translates into fining Joe Sixpack for anything the Left and women find disagreeable, distasteful, or not to their liking.

Yeah, but we don’t know what they mean by “continuig to harass her”. Did the guy follow her out of the store? Did he threaten her? Apparently, the cops have had problems with this guy before, so they understood the woman’s fear.

I don’t blame the guy for getting upset !

About a month ago I went to Whole Foods here in Colorado Springs during my lunch break from work. The place was busy. All the normal lines had customers with a lot of merchandise. I went to the < 15 item line and there was this jack@$$ who had a large cart of stuff. I got very pissed ! The express line got very long. He finally paid and left and I remarked to the cashier that the guy should not have used the line - very inconsiderate. Many people behind me were not happy either ! The cashier tried to hint to the guy but he flat out ignored her. The cashier told me that she was not allowed to directly make a comment to him that he needed to go to the regular line.

I went and talked with management that the cashiers should be allowed to tell the customer not to use the express line when they have a lot of stuff !

In actual reality, the customer who objected to the fat woman’s violation of the 10 item limit should have demanded to see the store manager instead of directly confronting the woman. Just like what I did as per my earlier posting in this thread. I said nothing to the jack@$$ but expressed my displeasure at the management.

A lady unloads her cart at a grocery check out. A half gallon of milk. A frozen chicken. A head of lettuce. A box of donuts. A loaf of bread. A box of cereal. A pound of hamburger, a bottle of detergent...

The cashier remarks: "Ah, you must be single."

The lady, surprised by the cashiers insight, looks at her groceries, seeing nothing that would give away her status, and replies: "Why yes, but how did you know?"

The cashier shoots back: "You're ugly."

Ding Ding Ding!
I think you just might be the winner here!

I can't believe the number of FReepers taking the bait here!

People, get a clue.
Harassment is a crime.
Some idiot initiates a spate of verbal harassment with me in public,and he/she has one to deal with one of three options.
Stop, deal with me reacting in any manner I choose, or deal with the cops.
“Stop” would be the safest choice for all concerned.
The second safest choice would be the belligerent fool dealing with the cops.
The least logical consequence is my “taking the law into my own hands”.

This article does not say she called 911.
This article does say the harassment was escalating, but does not say to what level.

And if any idiot thinks they can safely verbally assault a woman, as opposed to a 6'5” 250 pound Marine in uniform....
I would submit they are probably safer insulting the Marine.

But this jerk wouldn't have done that, now would he?

This is the way the nanny staters treated smokers when the political class gave them permission to attack other citizens. It’s like we have rabid dogs in society waiting for the cue to act like...little black shirts. The fatties are getting it now thanks to the bamster’s wife.

I got a funny story though. A prissy medical research marched over to a biker who was smoking at an outside cafe...where it is permitted. The priss got into his face like all the self appointed black shirt citizen aggressive agents do. The biker gave him up to three to move five feet away from his table. I was sitting there thinking, “MOVE, IDIOT.” But he did not move - he kept his high horse parked right there about a foot from the biker. One punch and the priss was out cold.

All the customers (this is Texas) told the police the priss was acting threatening and was told to stop but got more aggressive...Priss got arrested.

Most communities prohibit using 911 for non-emergency calls, and people who abuse the 911 system can be ticketed for it.

You are correct that THIS article simply says she called the police. The other article about this story posted on FR said she called 911.

IOW, there's more to the story than the misleading headline. As usual.

One should be ticketed for not reading to the end of the article.

Were one to do that, one would learn that the guy -- who has a history of anger problems -- continued to harrass her until she called the police.
