They are free to ask.This is why they ask you to take off your helmet - don't be a dick, it only takes 10 seconds...
Thief dons motorcycle helmet in attempt to rob Bowmanville Shoppers — Bikernet Blog - Online Biker Magazine
You didn't read the OP or did so selectively.Wow....what's with the entitlement in here? A store owner asks you to take off a helmet because it could be a robbery, could've just had a robbery, and they want to protect their own interest?
Why the fuss...I find people have too much free time on their hands that they get offended by the littlest things. OP...grow up. You're not special. Take the helmet off or go elsewhere. No big deal.
Nope, people need to get real.i usualy take my helmet off to go in the gas station if im not paying at the pump i dont see the big deal here. it only takes a few seconds to put the helmet back on. i always take off the helmet when going to the ATM at the bank. I have gone in a few times when the bank is already closed to use the ATM while others are there and you can see their reaction is somewhat unpleasant they might feel as if they are getting robbed. reverse the roles for all you entitled people, if you were a convenience store worker and see someone coming in with a fullface and tinted visor you would be acting the same way.
Over reacted because someone attempted to infringe on his rights? I disagree.You’re right. Message stays the same but I didn’t explain myself clearly.
OP didn’t need to get offended but say ‘ok fine ‘ and either pay or walk away. No need to get angry or upset over it.
Owner is an idiot for claiming a fake law but has every right to request removal of helmet as it’s not covered under any religious or any other exemption.
100% you have the right to refuse by taking your business elsewhere.Mimico- let me get this straight - you think they have the right to ask you but we don't have the right to refuse?
What rights exactly? Motorcycling isn’t a right. Wearing a helmet is a law when on the motorcycle, not when off. All it is is being inconvenienced and nothing else.Over reacted because someone attempted to infringe on his rights? I disagree.
For what it's worth i don't think he over reacted. I'd likely tell anyone who approached me in the same way to get bent.
Feel special about wearing a piece of protective head gear while paying for a service?What rights exactly? Motorcycling isn’t a right. Wearing a helmet is a law when on the motorcycle, not when off. All it is is being inconvenienced and nothing else.
Fact of the matter is riders feel entitled to act special because we ride, and others don’t. This isn’t a right that was infringed. It was an idiot owner calling out a ******** law. All I said is there’s better ways to handle it than being a tough guy about it. Don’t like it? Leave. Shop elsewhere. Find a place that doesn’t infringe on your ‘right’.
I'm not pressing the issue because i feel like it will just spiral into the Charter of Rights debate, but whose playing fast and loose with 'rights' now?Ya man! **** them and their right to feel safe and secure in the workplace....losers.
