My apology for the usual length but it will be well worth it...

Prologue

I have been patronizing the local 7-11 for over 10 years problem-free. The only thing remotely problematic has been the service I receive when the owner himself waits on me at one of the registers. Without going into unnecessary details, he treats me and certain other patrons like he’s doing us a favor by allowing our presence and patronage. Well my interaction with this snide, unappreciative, perfunctory-servicing owner finally came to a head and I was pushed to telling him in a conversational tone that he was being “an asshole as usual” when I came to his register. Unprofessionally, he threatened me with “something bad happening to me” and left to retrieve what I wanted behind the counter to return still upset further stating that I must have been talking about my father and family. I didn’t snatch him across that counter by his tie like some people I’ve known might have done because violence is not my nature. I laughed it off feeling that I had still gotten the better of the exchange and left “one-up” as far as I was concerned. Our unspoken and ongoing bad relations are partially due to my penchant for being intolerant of disrespect and due partially to his poor customer service skills.

I returned the next day to make a purchase with the secondary goal of reconciling with him because I realized that things would only get worse. I made my purchase with one of the polite employees and asked to speak to him. The person in-question who I later found was the owner (Farooq Sheikh) came out of the office to the counter. I emphatically stated and I quote, “Let me get something straight with you.” I informed him that I treated people with the same respect that they treated me with. I told him that I did not appreciate the way he treated me and had been treating me. I told him that he treated certain patrons as if he was doing them a favor when it was actually the other way around. I proceeded to address the insult he had made about my relatives. I informed him that my great-great grandfather was born in this country in 1840 and that I wasn’t so sure if his family had been here since last year. He imprudently started ignoring me and began threatening me with calling the police. I warned him about the danger of toying with a vengeful graphic designer possessing web design skills and internet and social media savvy. That did it. He told me to get out while I was still trying to talk to him and called the police like I was supposed to flee for the sake of freedom. He was still in my sight when I heard him describing me as a black male with other descriptions. I was thinking how unnecessary this formality was since it was my plan to be right out front waiting for the police to arrive. I took my purchase, stepped outside, and waited for law enforcement with my ID in my hand looking forward to the meeting.

A young white male police officer arrived. I initiated the conversation by introducing myself, telling him where I stayed and handing him my identification. His usual interaction with usual “suspects” was apparently thrown off from the jump. He listened to me, said a few things and went to hear the other side of the story. He returned outside where I awaited, went through a few condescending formalities, and informed me that it was the owner’s option to allow me in the establishment or not and stated that the owner wanted me banned from returning. This unfortunately is just the way the law works. I asked him to have the owner to come out and tell me he was banning me in-person. He told me that he was not going to allow us to argue. The owner came out and went on record with his request. I felt conciliation with this gesture alone. This was due to the fact that if I had been anything other than my normal, no-nonsense, thinking self I may have long since been kissing the concrete, sporting stainless steel bracelets in preparation for an escort in a citizen-finance, “black and white” transport in route to a one-room executive suite. I took the officer’s name/badge number, got the owner’s name and store number from the front window and sauntered off legally injured but with my dignity.
