Complaint: During a night out with the guys, We decided to have a drink at the Garage Door Saloon. I stopped at the bar, grabbed a beer, and proceeded back to the pool tables. After finishing our game of pool, I left my 2nd purchased beer on the side table. Upon exiting the bathroom, i noticed it was missing. I asked the guy who was sitting next to the side table, "Do you know what happened to the full Blue Moon that was sitting here?". He replied "One of the bartenders took it". I walked up to the bar and notified the ladies who were working, that one of their employees took a full beer, which i had just paid for. They told me, Tough luck and shrugged off my complaint. I asked the lady to close out my tab. She mentioned that the owner was here, and if i wanted to, I could talk to him about it. I approached the owner and explained that one of his employees took a full beer i had recently purchased. He replied "Im not your ***** Mom or Dad. Im not gonna hold your ***** hand while you go to the restroom!". I replied " I can hear you fine there is no reason to yell about this situation. Im only trying to resolve the issue". To where he replied "Get the ***** out, Now". I tried to reiterate my statement by saying, "Now...(I dont think thats necessary.)" He decided to pick me up by both arms and proceed to carry me out of the Establishment. Leaving my hands in my pockets the whole time, I made the statement "This is a little unnecessary, dont you think? I will be contacting the BBB about this". To which he replied with slamming me against the wall and saying "I dont give a ***** He threw me out of the saloon. My friends were out the door shortly after.
Desired Settlement: The whole situation was blown out of proportion. I dont see myself, Or anyone i know, wanting to go back to the Garage Door Saloon. The Owner embarrassed me in front of my friends and my Peers. He slammed me against the wall and intended to cause bodily injury, because of a simple misunderstanding. I tried my best to handle the situation maturely as the owner decided to take this opportunity to bully one of his patrons. At the very least, I'm entitled to an apology. As for any type of refund, I already tried, He would rather have a fit of rage than to reimburse a patron of a single beer.
