Revenge, humiliation, belittlement are all covered in this engaging short story. Amanda loves going to her favorite department store, but the store manager , along with the security guard, for some reason have decided that she is not 'good enough' or 'rich enough' to shop their store. They make degrading remarks to her and once the security guard followed her around the store watching her every move. When he stopped her as she was leaving the store and demanded to see her receipt for a scarf she bought, that was the last straw. Amanda and her brother put their heads together and come up with a plan that should eliminate any further nonsense for the store employees. Did they go too far? This is a very short story.. less than 50 pages. Although I'm not sure I would have taken these steps... it did make for entertaining reading. The 'devil ' in me enjoyed the just desserts. Many thanks to the author for the digital copy of this well written short story. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
