Pattel Manager has a short fuze and is very unprofesstional.
I decided to stop by your Palmdale Circuit City on 2-25-09 at approx 7:00 Pm. Located at 39331 10th Street West Palmdale, CA 93551 (661) 224-1467 to see if the store had some fixtures and or shelving for sale at a decent price. I walked around the store and walked toward the rear of the store hoping to find a sales associate to help me. I opened the door which appeared to be the back stock room and looked inside. I did not notice anyone there so I closed it. As I closed the door I noticed a Gentleman (Later Identified as Pattel Store Manager) Walk towards me in a hostile way from approx 40 Feet away. Pattel Shouted at me from the 40 Feet distance and stated, "Hey get the hell out of there". I was so in shock that I turned around thinking that he was talking to someone else. He then came closer and Stated in a loud voice, "Yeah you, what the hell are you doing back there". I Stated, "Wow, do you always treat your customers this way, I'm looking for an employee to help me find fixtures for my business". Pattel Stated, " You have no business back there, get the hell out of my store, I'm calling the Police". I was so in shock as some of the Customers were as well, in fact I have the Contact information of a Customer who witnessed the whole incident and is willing to testify in Court on my behalf if necessary, His name is Dan H. I asked for the Mangers Name and told him I was going to Contact the Corporate office to complain about his unprofessional behavior. He Stated, "I don't Care". Approx 5 Minuets Later as I was leaving the store in disbelief in what just happened The Sheriffs Department Arrived to the location and I explained my story to the officer. He told me to wait while he talked to Pattel. Approx 15 Minuets later the officer told me not to worry about it, Pattel has a short fuse. I went home and I was embarrassed to say the least. I feel like my Civil Rights were Violated, I was falsely accused of something, and My character was defamed by this incident. I'm requesting attention in this matter as I'm prepared to go public and seek legal council regarding this matter. I'm outraged and can not belive that Circuit City would employ and trust a business in the hands of Pattel.
Please contact me with any questions related or not related to Pattel Manager or this incident.
Please Note: The Back Stock Room Door had no Signs on it whatsoever ( I took Pictures) and Also there are several signs saying that everything is for sale including all fixtures and shelving.
