publix employees bother customers for parking in fire lines. Yes it's not acceptable to park in a fire lane, but people do it sometimes, for their own reasons and are taking the risk of getting towed. It's really not necessary for employees to walk out to bother people doing it...Publix makes it a concern of theirs to have their employees walkout to harass people parking in fire lines or on the side of the stores, or make them feel as if they don't know they are parked there....immature people, and they need help...

It
would be a royal shame if someone were to park in a fire lane for a mere ten
minutes or less and then come out of the store and see that one of their tires
was flat, not low, but completely flat. These
morons think it is no big deal when they park on private property in a fire
lane clearly posted, which is required by the local municipality for the owner
of the property which could be Publix or whomever holds the title to the
property to properly display with the proper signage on the ground, and or posted
with an upright sign near that fire lane,
Normal 0

stating no parking, which also means no idling with
someone in the car waiting on you to come out.
Normal 0

Think again.  A knife,
screwdriver, or a case cutter works quite well to flatten a tire.  Not
that I am in any way shape or form advocating violence.  The individual
that parks in that fire lane when they did not need to, will be quite
astonished to the fact that they cannot change that flat tire within another
ten to fifteen minutes, which will give the local municipality a chance to show
up and ticket them, if not have that persons vehicle towed away. Of course, that is an extreme way to handle the
situation.  Let that person go into whatever store, if not Publix, park in
a fire lane, just to purchase something and pray to whatever they pray to, that
something bad (heart attack> Boy,
13, is youngest
heart attack victim < stroke, or whatever) does not befall
them.  They will have a new attitude, if the emergency vehicle has
problems parking in the fire lane to rescue them.  Time matters (even
seconds), when the emergency vehicle does not have an unobstructed fire lane to park in when the paramedics come to
save them.

Are allowed to load and unload items in those exact same fire lanes you're the one who needs the doctor you sad retard for being such an egotistical arrogant jerk and loserwho focuses on measley parking issues as if cars that are parked in fire lanes are a hazard to society or people no store has the right to run people off' just for parking in fire lanes, or harass them as if they're committing some huge wrong..they have nothing better to do than police parking like the other idiots in this society who are on powertrips and need ways of making themselves feel superior and to belittle others and find faults in themthere are also many cars that park/stop there but aren't policed regularly.. it's called discrimination for targeting random people for no good reason...you're probably also the same losers in society who get drunk and who get stopped during dui's and get away with it because every really bad thing no one could care about, while yelling at insignifncant parking issues...you are also the angry bitter freaks who yell at cars driving not so fast in the left lane and try to cause accidents or tail gate them...you're the scumbags with the issues for being so angry over menial trivial things...and trying to throw blame on people for no reason...what next you rejects....let's police people who decide to have 11 items...in the 10 item check out lane... you are so petty and stupid it's beyond a shame...get a brain and some real balls you sad bullies you are such cowards and imbeciles...for the jerk who wants to feel big and superior...hope you are harassed and followed around as well so you can know what it feels like, though im sure trash like you is the kind of scum that actually does the harassing of others...

How exactly is this a ripoff?

AUTHOR: Kaptain Morgan - (U.S.A.)

How exactly is this a ripoff that you bother to post this comment here? So the employees ran you off for parking illegally in front of their store? Good for them! You shouldn't have been parked there to begin with. Why don't you park in the handicap spaces instead and complain about being asked to move (or ticketed) when you don't have a decal to park there either. If you think they were knit-picking about where your car was, I think you are equally to blame to use this medium to gripe about something so trivial when you were so clearly in the wrong.

What has this world come too?

AUTHOR: Clarence - (U.S.A.)

What seems to be your problem? I have the name of a good Doctor perhaps you should call and get an appointment.

FIre Lanes are there to protect the people inside a building in the event of an emergency, not so that you are inconvenienced in any way. I don't think that it would have been such a big deal to park in the alotted spaces provided in the parking area. Perhaps you should take this into consideration suppose you were inside that building and needed emergency assistance, or the building was on fire, would you still feel the same way about a person who parked in the emergency lanes in front.

True they are stripped through, but if a fire or other emergency is inside that particular store I would think that the vehicles should be able to park outside that particular store and not some 15-20 feet away. Seems to me that these people in that particular store Know you very very well. What would you think if ten or fifteen of your neighbours parked in your driveway for "just a minute or so" and suppose they blocked you in? Rules are rules and they apply to EVERYONE. You seem a little paranoid in this matter. I am sure that the employees are not out to get you!

Publix is responsible and has every reason to chase you out

AUTHOR: Steven - (U.S.A.)

As Robert said Publix could be fined in case there was an emergency and the firetruck or other emergency equipment could not get in place because someone parked their car in the emergency lane. Publix is just as responsible for trying to enforce this code as they are for making sure their employees don't put boxes in front of emergency exits or create other fire hazards. As you said they could just as easily hire a policeman to come spend the day in front of the store. If parking in the fire lane was that big of a problem I am sure that they could do that. Maybe even the city would love to collect this additional income as well. Who knows maybe when they run your tag they will find all those other fines and unpaid tickets.

One question though Melissa/Anonymous --- Why would a person who was just laughed out of a store during a job interview go back to that store and shop???

Wow. Perhaps you just try not to park in that spot...

AUTHOR: J G Shrugged - (U.S.A.)

Ten minutes is a VERY long time to use a fire lane for anything....

Stopping to drop someone off is one thing. Parking for 10 minutes is another. How much time was saved vs. parking in a regular spot???

Anyway - I find that it's great that someone is standing up for what is right and confronting it rather than pull the "it's not my problem, let the police just handle it...." which permeates our society today.

thanx GOD I do not live in Orlando anymore

AUTHOR: Cat - (U.S.A.)

Geesh, I am thanking GOD I no longer live in Florida, I pity everyone left who has to deal with this person! If people are really this stupid then I for one hope they call the cops and they throw you in jail where you belong . btw........it is ILLEGAL to do this, just like the truck that parked in the handicapp zone this weekend that was had no tags or license plates for it. So, I called the cops and guess what? It is no longer there! Hmm, some of us actually FOLLOW THE LAW!!

Melissa/ Anon, you can never be anonymous. But you are still WRONG!!

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

I guess you are saying that the store is singling you out because you are an Asian Female, right? That is what I read from your posts. You say they are targeting you and have no legal right to do so, right?

You couldn't be more wrong, legally.

First of all, that Publix is on PRIVATE PROPERTY. Any employee on that property, pursuant to Florida Law can TRESPASS you from that property at any time, without cause. That is their legal right.

You DO NOT have a legal right to go there or to be on the property. They could "legally" put up an enforce a sign that says "No Asian Females with bad attitudes". It would be poor business sense, and would be in bad taste, but would be perfectly legal. It IS private property.

Second, the publix employee DOES have both the RIGHT and the RESPONSIBILITY to tell you to move from the fire lane. It is NOT your legal right to park there. And, it is a violation of both state and local fire codes to park there. You ARE breaking the law. Would you rather get the $500 ticket?

Third, as far as parking in handicapped spaces goes, that is illegal too and carries a fine of $250. I personally call the cops when I see this act of stupidy and laziness.

The bottom line here is, you have no "rights" when on someone elses private property. You also have the choice not to go there.

Problem solved.

as usual, more idiots with discriminatory comments...

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

that is completely untrue. picking on 'one' person for parking in a fire lane is totally uncalled for. I have witnessed 'many' people park, stop, do various things in the fire lane...it is not the responsibility of 'publix' to bother people parking in fire lanes as they do not bother anyone else appaerntly except those they choose to bother and harass for it. At first I did feel bad for parking there as it is clearly 'not ok' to do so...but that does not give publix employees the right to harass only me for doing this....if they are picking on me for doing it, they should do it to everyone but they don't...and if safety was the concern, they should have said that from the begnning but it wasn't....their primary remarks were "your car might get towed" not..."safety"...they threw safety in there later because they had to find more reasons to try to make me feel bad, or harass me....for doing something that many people do and that is not anything that bad or wrong.... that is like treating someone in a criminal manner for doing a harmless thing...and it is also not jeopardizing anyone in any way shape or form...or the safety of anyone....that is like saying that parking in a handicapped spot is jeopardizing the safety of other people when it's not...it's not right in some form and tickets could be issues or fines could be issued....that dose not mean that if someone is regularly parking in certain palces that publix employees have the right to come out and harass them regularly.....for doing so... if they are caught or given a ticket, they will be-- that's the job of law enforcement, not idiots working at local stores....people park in fire lanes all the time....or on the side of the curb-- or stop there...if employees came out harassing everyone who did that regularly, there would eb chaos....but they don't...no one does, but when employees witness someone doing it who they want to bother for their own sport or their own reasons...they will do so then 'everyone' will pick on and pathologize random person A...for doing what others or many do....be fair and stop discriminating against people just because u have no morals or decency or are just stupid ignorant classless idiots....which is what many of you morons out there today are....jerks...

Response to "parking in fire lanes"

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

There is a reason for NO PARKING in fire lanes!!
Consider a bit further before submitting such nonsense to ROR!
Thank goodness for the concern the managers of Publix have, in sending out their employees to remind people not to park in these lanes, so in case of a fire, firetrucks can get to the building and SAVE PEOPLES LIVES!

Thanks...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

One again Melissa thanks for posting. Your reports always bring a good laugh to start off my day. You have had many lines that could be considered classics, and as always this report has another one.

"what is wrong with the psychos that are in orlando, florida-- they seem to be very msesed up sick people who have nothing better to do with their time than bother or annoy people"

Reading your many reports I have to ask this same question but in reference to you. Have you ever gone to a business where you were not harrassed or bothered?

But unlike your other reports where you were just a nuisance, you actually are breaking the law in this case. The Fire lanes are there for a reason..Public Safety. In looking at this and other reports I know you could care less about anyone else other than your selfish needs. So the next time you go I hope that they don't talk to you but just call the cops and have your car towed immediatly. Of course once they do I bet we will see a report on the towing company and how everyone there is a psycho.

No RipOff here, the store is just being responsible for everyone's safety.

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

This "complaint" is simply ridiculous.

First of all, out of all of the stores I use, I have found Publix to be among the best as far as quality of employees goes.

As far as the fire lanes go, you do not have the "right" to park there, and you do not have the right to endanger others by doing so.

Fire lanes are there for everyone's safety, and the store employee was being responsible and looking out for the safety of everyone in the store.

Next time, maybe they will just call the police and get you ticketed and towed.
If I see you parking there, I'll make the call.
Bet on it.

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

this stupid publix in oviedo, florida is regularly harassing me for parking
in the fire line for about 10 mins tops. Again it's not right but I would say
it's my loss if my car got towed and my problem, not theirs, nor is it jeopardizing anyone because if an ambulance did have to come they have an entire strip...
The last time I went there, and everytime I go, there is some loser employee standing outside the door trying to get my attention saying to me "u can't park there" and he threatende me and said he had my 'license plate' and that i was 'jeopardizing the safety of the entire parking lot and plaza." You have got to be kidding me...these psycho idiots have nothing better to do than literally harass women who are parked in a fire lane...yeah i undrestand it is not right.... what is wrong with the psychos that are in orlando, florida-- they seem to be very msesed up sick people who have nothing better to do with their time than bother or annoy people....is their job that boring that they know when a particular customer comes into their store and have to take the time to get in their path and insult them and make their experience just terrible...even worse I've witnessed many people park in the fire lane in more 'hazardous' spots...and even one today...and a white male-- nothing was said to him of course....but publix low life discriminating scumbag employees make it a mission to try to pathologize an asian female for something like that...now luckily I found a very close parking spot and did so just to avoid getting harassed because I know had I parked ni the fire line, there would be an entourage of psychopaths ready to pounce on me or treat me like a criminal and interrogate/harass me had I not done that... seems to be a common theme in orlando a city full of ignorant jackasses...they have nothing better to do than pick on lone females who they're seemingly trying to get attention from or trying to just pathologize for any stupid little thing because they are so distraught within themselves and are bullies and sickos it gives them some kind of fun in getting together in groups and bullying women....screw this company and these sad disturbed people....
