I agree that what that woman on the phone did was wrong but you didn't have the right to take her property. You crossed a line and treated her like she was your child.
You should have called a manager and helped the woman that was hurt, it isn't your job to discipline a stranger in a grocery store.
Sorry to say but jayblackman had a point. If you had taken my phone and hung up on my call I would have knocked you down and taken it back. What if she was talking to a hospital about a sick family member, doing a phone interview for a potential job that called her with no notice, or was taking some other important call? You had no right to put your hands on her or her property, no matter what she did wrong.View Thread
