You’d probably never expect a visit to your local Dollar Tree to be comparable to something out of an Indiana Jones movie, but there’s one dude out there that would beg to differ. Apparently this unfortunate customer had a rat bite his finger while reaching for ribbon and actually had to shake the damn thing off. He claims to have then spotted a nest of rats in a box on the shelf. When employees came to assist him, three more rats allegedly jumped out at them.
The store manager instructed the customer to go to the hospital and send the bill to Dollar Tree, but instead the customer went to the hospital and hired a lawyer, and now it’s sue time. The customer claims he has suffered mental anxiety and anguish as well as severe shock to his entire nervous system and has been unable to work. He is seeking over $50,000 in damages. That will probably keep the store in the picture from getting their “R” fixed anytime soon.
