Don't roll your eyes and shake your head at me! "I'm appauled by that Security Guard, does he think we'd steal with a BABY?!"
FUCK off, lady. You walked right by me through the checkout without paying with a huge box sticking out of your baby carriage and all I did was LOOK at it.
I didn't STOP you, I didn't TALK to you, I didn't do ANYTHING except look.
Stupid question I hear every day: "Do I look like a thief to you?"
IF I KNEW SOMEONE WAS A THIEF BY LOOKING AT THEM then I wouldn't let them into the store now WOULD I?
Do you think having a baby and a husband makes you special? That people with kids aren't thieves?
Harsh fact: It's my job to protect the store and I have to assume everyone is a thief until they leave the store. If I don't then SHIT gets STOLEN because I would have STOPPED DOING MY JOB.
Lady: It's my job to watch people. There is no one person who "looks like a thief". If that were the case, then thieves would know not to look like that.
AND YES I HAVE TO ASK YOU FOR YOUR BAG WHEN YOU ENTER THE STORE. NO I DON'T THINK YOU LOOK LIKE A THIEF.
Put yourself in my shoes. Let's say you were me, standing here all day... you see all these nice innocent people come in with bags with their shiny smiles and clean clothes. And then GASP! You see some DELINQUENT come into the store with a bag! Your judgemental ass would POUNCE ON THAT SHIT and demand that they leave their bag with customer service.
That person would turn around and say to you, "But everyone else has their bag, why can't I have MY bag?"
And then you would have to tell them: Because I think you are a thief and I think that all of these OTHER people AREN'T thieves.
So the guy leaves. I can guarantee you that if that person WERE a thief he would come back a week later dressed like all of those shiny people with their shiny smiles because he would know that you wouldn't ask him for his bag and then he would rip your store off and you would get your ass fired and you would be a fool.
So forgive me for inconveniencing you by doing my job. Don't give me shit and don't try to tell me how to do it.
