I would have called the police. That kind of behavior iunacceptable, and you should not have to tolerate that at all.

yes I would have. I worked at a gas station and had a similar experience and the cops were called and she was ticketed.

I would call the police station (not 911) and see if there are sufficient grounds for a restraining order. If your workplace won’t take steps to keep you two at a safe distance, it doesn’t mean you can’t. Good luck, sorry she spewed her crazy all over you.

I wouldn’t have asked her boyfriend what her problem was. I wouldn’t have called the cops. It wouldn’t even occur to me that there was such a thing as “verbal assault.” She obviously has some issues, but she didn’t actually touch you. Let your co-worker ring them up from now on and don’t talk to the guy. I would only consider police involvement if she actually came over the counter.

As for the policies at your place, your manager sounds like he sucks. You should be able to turn a customer away for that behavior.

@MrsRuby:  Do you hae any kind of security cameras?  I am a little shocked that the manager would not address this immeadiately.  But in the future, call the police.  You have a right to be at work and not be threatened or berated by anyone.

 

Shame on your manager for not barring her immeadiately, at least for the time being since it is your place of employment.  

ETA, I would also be looking for another job.

@MrsRuby:  you should be able to feel safe at work, not threatened. Call your local police station and file a report.

Can you file a report now?  I think her behavior needs to be on record.

@MrsRuby:  I am just floored that your manager seems so out of touch with her employees.  I don’t care what kind of job you work, that is not necessary…..EVER.  Nor should it be acceptable.  Especially since their is proof that it took place.

 

Please look for other work.  This company doesn’t seem to care about it’s employees.

@MrsRuby:  I can’t believe that your manager didn’t have an issue with you, in theory, being threatened.  I wouldn’t want to work there if my manager wasn’t at least considering talking to her as a warning, letting her know that this is a warning, that behavior will not be tolerated in tthe future.  

A lot of people are just big talkers.  But then there are some that aren’t.  Or usually they are, but then they had a bad day, or too much to drink….or a number of things.

I guess that I just wouldn’t feel safe if you don’t actually know her well enough to know she’s predicatably will never do anything.

She sounds like complete and utter trash.
