frustrated and angry
First off why I'm frustrated, I loosened my trucks because they were so tight I couldn't make easy turns. Now I don't like how loose they are so I'm going to tighten them little by little to find a spot that I'm comfortable with high speeds and able to take easy turns. It's so hard finding the perfect tightness or looseness for the trucks. The only problem is I don't have my skate tool on me. That leads me to why I'm angry. I went to a tool store that's supposedly nice and chill and known for not having a problem with people coming in and using a tool if they need to. So I go in and to the back where the used tools are and I find the right size to tighten my trucks a little bit, it wasn't as tight as I wanted though, but when I go to leave they asked for it back and I said I left it on the table, like your supposed to, than they ask me to empty my pockets, than I ask why and they accuse me of stealing it. I said that I was offended and that I would not empty my pockets and they replied with well we will call the police than. I said go ahead I'll wait for them. So the police show up ask me to empty my pockets and surprise it wasn't in my pockets than I went to the back picked it up and said here it was back there the whole time. Have a good day. And than I left. I believe that they treated me like this because I had my board with me and they must have some hatred towards skaters. Now they will never get my business again. I'm so angry.

There is always some people who hate or don't trust skaters and it's bull when they treat us like that. I get that type of stuff too cause I'm a longboarder and teenager. The fact that people think some people will steal just because the way they look is ridiculous, I know people that would steal and don't look like they would. I hate being judged cause I have long hair, have gauges, longboard, and in the future have tattoos.
