Oh, the People We Meet

As you may have noticed, it has been several months since I’ve had a new post. I wanted to break the unintentional hiatus to share a story with you:

I happened to be working yesterday when a man walked in and asked if we had security cameras in the store. He gives no immediate explanation as to why, so I have no idea what to say. I wait to let my manager be the one who tells him no. He then asks whether there are any cameras in the parking lot and, again, the answer is no.

He finally tells us that he was in the store a few weeks earlier, didn’t buy anything, and needed to prove that he was there. We tell him sorry and he leaves.

And I’m left wondering why this guy has to prove where he was on that particular day…
