Frustrated Woman Grabs Louisville Slugger, Smashes Target Store Windows
CBS Pittsburgh ^ | June 24, 2011 | staff reporter

Posted on 06/25/2011 10:33:42 AM PDT by Daffynition

MCCANDLESS (KDKA) — A frustrated woman took a baseball bat to the front windows of the Target in McCandless.

Donna Rosenberger, 39, of Cranberry, had an explanation for her actions.

“I tried returning two ice cream makers and they would not give me my money back,” she said. “So I made a scene yesterday.”

Rosenberger told KDKA’s John Shumway she went to Dick’s Sporting Goods and bought a high performance Louisville Slugger Dynasty and returned to the Target Friday morning for the attack.

““I tried returning two ice cream makers and they would not give me my money back,” she said. “So I made a scene yesterday.” “

Lady, “making a scene” typically involves speaking in a loud voice, yelling, etc.

What you did was willful destruction of property. That’s a crime.

Did she go to Dick’s Sporting Goods to return the Louisville Slugger too?

She went to Dick’s because she was behaving like one. It was a natural choice.

Didn’t read the story, but I’ll lay odds the ice cream makers had been used.

It doesn’t make much sense to plunk down $$$ for an expensive bat because one is angry at not receiving a cash refund for two ice cream makers.

Wonder what would have happened if the teller had a hickie[sic]“

'Like if I go to the bank, I’ve had this happen to me too where I tried to get money out of the bank and they say, ‘We don’t have enough money in the bank to give you your money,’” she said.'

In any event, this pig is guilty.

Unless I missed it in the story, no store is going to give you cash-money unless you have a sales slip...I didn’t see where she had a receipt. She should have been satisfied with the gift card and kept her mouth shut, IMO.

I admitted on another thread the other day...I’ve been lazy and complacent and have not been carrying when I go to town. I see, increments like this, that have me carrying religiously. You never know.

oh my gosh. LOL.

So, if a woman is frustrated in a certain way, she wants a Louisville Slugger to gain satisfaction.

I get it know. I am slow on the uptake!

Yes, and when they refused to accept the damaged bat back, she threw two ice cream makers through the window.

Basically a store credit. Sounds more generous than she deserved.

Hey, Ice Cream is a food group in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Barry and his Wookie would have done the same thing. How many times have we seen his lips wrapped around an Ice Cream cone? The Wookie loves Ice Cream, you don’t think she has a wide ass from only eating French Fries do you?

Her drug dealer would have demanded too steep a discount for accepting the gift card in lieu of cash.

Maybe next time she needs a fix, she can take them to a pawn shop, or hold a yard sale.

I like the gang scene too. He puts the bat to good use in that one as well.
