I was a cashier at a local store working a very busy weekend. There were huge crowds of people walking around hastily. If you looked at these customer’s faces it seemed like each and every one was frowning, or glaring at the situation. Since we used minimal liquor bottle security, it was really just a matter of time before this kind of situation happened.
There were long lines at the registers. You could see the people were restless, one man in particular. He kept stepping out of the line to see how any people were in front of him. He would crane his neck to see if any of the other registers were shorter. When he saw that they weren’t he would step back in line.
After a few minutes (I am sure it felt like forever to him) he threw his hands up in the air and yelled this is ridiculous. He then stepped out of line for the last time and started walking out of the store.
For most people, we would have left the merchandise behind, but not him. Maybe it was because he felt it was owed to him because he had to wait. Perhaps it was because we didn’t use Alpha Security EASy Bottle bottle locks for our liquor bottle security. Maybe he was simply frustrated and forgot that he still had bottles of our liquor in his hands. Either way, he took it with him, and we lost a potential sale, the inventory and a customer all in one.
