I walked into the dollar tree without a mask with friends. I was the only one without a mask due to a medical condition.

When asked by the man in front, I told him I couldn't wear them due to a medical condition. He told my friends could shop for me but I had to wait outside because he couldn't have me in his store. When I asked, "Even if I have a medical condition", he added, "This isn't my first rodeo." According to the law, no business can discriminate against someone due to a disability.
