Early Warning Alarm

| Related | February 15, 2013

(I work in the electronics department of a major retailer, so there are security alarms. Normally, they’re supposed to go off when unpaid merchandise leaves the department, but sometimes it reacts to certain customers’ clothing. This happens to an unattended child, who looks to be about 5 years old. He finds this amusing, so he goes in and out of the entrance repeatedly.)

Me: “Excuse me, can you stop doing that, please?”

(He doesn’t listen to me at all. He keeps going back and forth, setting off the alarms and giggling to himself. While this is happening, I am also serving a young married couple, who also witness this.)

Husband: “Honey, I’m having second thoughts about starting a family.”

Wife: “Me too, sweetie…”
