One might call this the over-reaction of 2007. A patron of a Walgreens in FL became angered due to a dispute over the change she received was incorrect. So what does any rational, thinking person do? You guessed it … attempt to burn down the store. Angry customer? Might want to do a mental evaluation on this one. I guess this will be one more reason to prevent cigarette smoking in public.
Store employees said their night turned from frustrating to scary, Monday. One moment, the customer was angry. The next, she was going up and down the isles lighting merchandise on fire.
“I smelled smoke in the cooler and I was like, ‘What’s going on? What’s going on?’ Ran out and I see big black smoke all over the store, black on the ceiling, black everywhere,” Ambriose said.
Employees said an angry customer was to blame.
“She just came into the store and she got pissed off because the change was incorrect or something,” Ambriose explained.
That’s when the anger turned into action. The woman started going down the isles, employees said, with a lit cigarette and started setting merchandise on fire. (WFTV)
