That was either Hack or an early version of Nethack. It's still the same way, if you are in a shop, grab something, and teleport out the Keystone Cops show up and mob you with cream pies and rubber hoses.

It's best not to do that unless you're a high-level chaotic character (with some item of reflection, for some reason all shopkeepers carry at least a wand of magic missile and usually some elemental wand) and really don't like the shopkeepers. Just leave poor Izchak alone.

I think I had a YASD at some point where I was in a shop, fighting a mimic IIRC, and stupidly decided to read an unidentified scroll. Turned out to be teleport, the shopkeeper came after me and that was the end of that character.
