Robbery while shopping
I have been shopping this weekend and talk about crowded. People sure don't look like they are slowing down on the spending around here.
Had an interesting experience shopping at Best Buy yesterday, the place was robbed! I did not see anything but could hear this guy yelling and a man who'd been sprayed with pepper spray came around the corner where I was. I have been held up 3 times when I worked in banks so I had my purchases in my hand and I was immediately expecting that I would not be able to make them because they would close the store. Well, I was finished my shopping and I did not want to have to go elsewhere so I headed for the cashier and she was unaware the store had been robbed. She thought it was just some angry consumer that was yelling, but my husband saw the guy had a mask over his head. There was also broken glass with all the yelling. I of course did not make my way to make my purchases until it was apparent the guy was gone and I was really glad I didn't have to go shopping elsewhere.
The third time I was robbed in the bank the rest of the staff was oblivious to what was happening. I was so mad. They didn't know until the guy was gone and I went walking around the counter, cursing my head off, to lock the door. You lock the door to preserve any evidence, although none of my bank robbers were ever caught. I suppose that event lead to me leaving the bank. I just became paranoid about everyone who came through the door that I did not recognize. And my friend who worked up the street got held up by a woman within a week of my third bank robbery, so I'd always been more cautious about the men after my first two bank robberies, but that week I started feeling insecure with every stranger that walked through the door.
