Re: “Bruno's

I had one of the worst experiences of my life last night at this place. I stopped by to buy a six-pack at the store in Bruno's on my way home. I was listening to a friend on the phone and walked straight to the back to browse. The employee at the front of the store started yelling at me to get off the phone. I was confused and wasn't even sure he was talking to me. He ran back and shoved a ratty cardboard sign in my face and started telling me to "get out of his store" (plus several harsh expletives. I said, "what is going on? I'm not checking out, I'm not even talking." THE SIGN SAYS NO CELL PHONES! And he began screaming at me. I left and called the police, then he came out to the sidewalk and started calling me anti-gay slurs and pushing up against me.

The police were of little help, but I am horrified by my experience here. I will never go back and am actually afraid to walk by the place now. I love this neighborhood and am beside myself that I've been terrorized by a store employee at Bruno's.
