I was in San Marcos, CA. and it was hot and the first place I saw with shade was in back of the Home Depot store. As I drove into the back I did not notice any signs saying no parking or stay out of this area. I did notice signs on the doors that said stay clear swinging doors. I did notice ther was yellow post on each side of every door opening. I was clearly away from any door opening. I was resting for about 10 minutes and a lady came up to me and said that the security will be making its rounds and they would not be happy with me being here. I did not know who this lady was and she was not in any home depot attire or apron, so I just told my self if the security does come I will move. In about 10 more minutes this guy comes up to my window and yells at me, and tells me I had 30 seconds to move my car or he was going to call the police. I told him call the police, I said I did not see any signs that say no parking or do not enter this area. Then he yelled at me again and said it was up on a pole near a bunch of pallets and outside displays. I am sorry but if you want someone to see the signs, make them more visable or put them on the walls of the building. I told him I did not need to see the sign. Then for the third time he yelled at me again and said I was told three times to move. This guy was a donkies behind. I told him that he was just that and the lady that had told me in the first place never introduce who she was and she did not have any home depot attire on. And then I told him that he was only the second person who ordered me to move. Then he said lets start over. I said that would be a good idea. He said that I was not suppose to be back here and that I needed to move. I said ok. I watch as he went in back of my car and started writing something down, probably my lisense plate number. All this guy or the lady needed to do is be a little more pleasant. I felt like I was treated like a bum or a teenager in trouble, I am 52 years old. This guy is lucky I was not a lose cannon or some mental case or he may have gotten his donkies behind kicked, hard. I just want to write this and hope someone takes head to what happened. To many times people jump to conclusions and it will work against them. I was in the wrong for being there, although it did not deserve the turn of events that took place. I do not wish to ever shop at home depot again and I will tell this story to many people I know. What is the formula for loosing customers, 2 percent die, 10 percent find a better price, 86 percent are lost because they had a bad experience. We are in troubled times and it does not seem like it will get economically better any time soon. There are plenty of other stores like home depot to shop at. Maybe this guy had a chronic pain, I do not know what it was, but maybe as big as home depot is they need to have lessons on how to treat this type of situation. And why did home depot pull all there HR employees out of the stores?
