    Post Friends Grove City Outlet Shopping at the Steeler Store encounter

    What do yous think of this? A co worker of mine is a Browns fan, and has grandchildren that are Steeler fans. She lives in Warren, Ohio. She was Christmas shopping in Grove City Outlet Mall at the Steelers Store there. She goes in wearing a Browns jersey. (I'm thinking, 1st mistake) She says she was totally harassed and mocked the entire time she was there, mainly from the sales clerks there working. Which in a way I don't think they should do that considering that she was there to buy gifts and spend some money. But I figure that they were just kidding with her. But she probably took it that they were serious. I told her, what do you expect? I wouldn't go to a Browns store wearing Steelers stuff. And if I did, I would expect them to berate me.

    every team has their fair share of d-bag fans...i'm sure they were just messing with her, but if they weren't, chock it up to them being the d-bag fan percentile

    No offense here, but c'mon. You have to have some coomon sense. Were the employees and customers rude or inappropriate? Perhaps, but would you expect any differently were the situation reversed?

    My nephew is a colts fan and when we went out shopping for his Christmas stuff here in Indiana I wore my Steeler's gear. Colts fans just love my 6-time champions shirt

    The year that the Bucs won the Super Bowl, I was standing outside the Reno airport waiting for a taxi beside a young guy wearing a Raiders sweatshirt. I told him I was from Tampa, put my hand out, we shook hands and laughed about it. Whoda thunk that the Bucs would win a Super Bowl!! ...but I'm glad they did!!

Ive seen enough ****ed up **** happen when I was ounger going to games and penn state games where I didnt wanna be that person giving **** and being an ***. But thats just me.

    I can see the customers doing it, hell I would too. The employees though should show some self control since they are to sell merchandise.
