You’re psychopaths. You guys don’t think. You just obey’
A man who says he’s unable to wear a face mask documented how a Home Depot store actually shut down all of its self-checkout stations to prevent him from making a purchase.
The unidentified man who says he runs a construction business recorded video of himself in late April inside the Home Depot in Morgan Hill, California, strolling through the aisles as he heads to the checkout area with a single item.
“Look at this. They shut down self-checkout just for me,” he says, “all because I’m breathing fresh air. They’re practically shutting down half the store. This is incredible. This is amazing.”
As store employees begin to engage the man, he explains: “I’m going to send this to my attorney and, by the way, my half-a-million-dollar account with my ten-million-dollar business, all the business is going to Lowe’s … because they’re not psychopaths like you guys.”
Lowe’s is a competitor of The Home Depot hardware chain.
“I’ve been shopping with Home Depot for six months, no issues,” he continues. “This is the only Home Depot I’ve had an issue with.”
A store employee tells the man, “We can simply call law enforcement,” and then apparently proceeds to phone police.
“Holy smokes! Look at you people. You’re psychopaths,” the man declares. “You guys don’t think. You don’t use your brain. You just obey.”
