A dying grandma was left crying her in car for 20 minutes after claiming a Lidl security guard banned her from her local supermarket after ‘looking her up and down’ and mistaking her for a drug addict. Karen Sahiti, who is terminally ill, says she was told she could not return to shop at the discount supermarket.
The 55-year-old says she was confronted when she popped in to Lidl to buy beer for her son and use the toilet earlier this month. Karen, who suffers from lung condition emphysema and brittle bone disease, says she was allowed to use the toilet but when she returned to buy the beer she claims she was banned.
Karen said: “He looked me up and down a few times and said: ‘Look at the state of you’. I was so confused. The guard and the manager banned me from the shop and I went home and told my daughter. When she went down to complain and get their details she recorded the security guard say he had mistaken me for a druggie. It broke my heart.”
