    Taking Truth Down To The Wire

    | WI, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology, Theme Of The Month

    (When our store first started using spiderwire (an alarmed wire wrapped around packaging) we weren’t allowed to tell people what is was, for whatever reason. When asked, I would just say it is a security device. I am pressed on how it works by one belligerent customer:)

    Me: “This is a sophisticated anti-theft system we’ve just invested in. If one leaves the store it will automatically engage the alarm and trigger the GPS tracking. We then relay the information to the police. It’s so we can not only stop theft, but bust thieves in their own homes.”

    (The customer’s mouth was open with shock.)

    Customer: “I didn’t realize [Store] was capable of that!”

    (He then set his item wrapped in wire down slowly and literally ran out of the store.)
