Anyway my friend ended up kicking the shit out of the manager with his chaos, and guess what, he gets banned.
Did the manager cry cheater, or was it just out of spite without a given reason?

And I hope the kid who got framed got unbanned :S

I wonder if the kid got banned for unsportsmanly conduct. Maybe even just a playful "AHA!" probably might have pissed off the manager.

He didn't even say he was cheating, he just said "get out of my store"
and yeah the kid did get unbanned but as I say it' still pretty akward between the manager and the kid (this is a diffrent manager then the bastard btw)

I don't really understand why it would be awkward, he got framed for theft, the manager's reaction was reasonable, it should all be fine (if a little uncomfortable) between them after the truth came out and an apology was given.

I do, I've almost had a similar scenario happen to me but for something way less serious. At least for me, if someone who doesn't really know me blames me for something I didn't do, punishes me and finds out I didn't do it, he could apologize to me to the end of the world, but I will always have that feeling like "I can't believe you thought I would do something like that. Do I give up that type of Vybe? Do I look like a bad person?"

If they don't know you, how are they supposed to determine what you would do?


If i found a guy with a load of stuff in his bags he hadn't paid for, i'd assume theft if i didn't know them.

This.
Obviously there will always be irrational emotional impacts, but the concious mind should be able to accept that it was nothing more than a mistake.

If people thought with their brains and not their emotions, cigarette ads would be completely unsuccessful.

Oh I was just referencing something I read once that was making the point that people's decisions are made by their emotions, not their reason. They cited the example of a typical ad in a magazine for cigarettes. It's usually something like a photo of a group of happy, young, attractive people having the time of their lives, associating this with the product. Then, at the bottom of the page, big as life, is the Surgeon General's Warning saying, essentially: "If you use this product, you will die." The photo appeals to the emotion, the warning appeals to the reason, and yet the ad is effective.
