    Yeah. But, It was nearly impossible to hear with that Damn Moog Synthesizer blasting the " Baroque Hoedown" at 200+ Decibles over the loudspeakers during the Frozen Electric Night Parade...

    I think its more they would rather not create another incident that garners any bad publicity..

There is Michael's too, you know.
    So what? I am sorry, but scammers like that when NOT stopped just continue scamming people.

    IMO the simpler solution is to remove it.. If they want one, just have them bring in their own.

    You'd be surprised how long some have been in the store..

    Which is why they don't want you trying to handle customer service issues. Do your guard job and just stand there to act as a deterrent and stop being a busy body.

    So what? I am sorry, but scammers like that when NOT stopped just continue scamming people
    Is it your job to investigate people trying to get coupons from customer service?


    If you want to be a cop, try getting hired by a police department. Until then, you aren't a cop, stop pretending you are one.

    Maybe you should confiscate it and make it your "police vehicle."

    Better yet, just chill out and don't get involved with that aspect of the store.

    ...but, she wasn't there first.

    i get that....just suggesting from a personal improvement standpoint, you might ask yourself 'why can a manager handle this, but not me?'
    So what? I am sorry, but scammers like that when NOT stopped just continue scamming people.
    she may be overdoing it, but you were outta line

    simpler in that you don't have to handle any more high stress situations....but doesn't improve the shopping experience for the customer.
    You'd be surprised how long some have been in the store..

    I think he has a horribly boring dead end job. If he has to work there, he should do as little as possible, which isn't hard for a security guard.

    If he wants some excitement, he should try talking one of the more attractive store clerks into having a tryst with him.

    The last thing he should be doing is trying to mete out justice in the usage of the store's mobility scooters, or launching investigations into counterfeit coupons.

    It is none of his business.

    Here's the solution for Garhkal to get about doing his bidness, while looking very suave, debonaire, and sophisticated. And also it would look professional.

    @Absinthe Anecdote. I know you think that you’re trying to be funny. But, you’re not and this is not a joking matter. As a former Intelligence Officer/ Homeland Security Expert, you of all people should know, that Our On-site security guards are our Nation’s first line of defense in the long war against the Islamo Fascist Jihadist Terrorist Network.

    Thanks to the Modern day Gutenberg press, It’s become common knowledge that the Khazarian Mafia Cabal has seized control of Global fabric distribution industry.
    Joann Fabrics could be the “ground zero” for this sinister threat.

    In a perfect world, we’d have the highly professional Behavior Detection analysts of the TSA on site (to keep us safe).

    It hasn’t been announced yet. But, insiders say, that the Marines have seized control of the Federal Reserve board of Directors and Nationalized the Banks, so the huge Orwellian style police state we all love, is no longer going to be possible to maintain (in this resource constrained environment we now live in).

    It’s a real paradigm shift, I know……But, (unfortunately) We’re all just going to have to learn to do “more with less”.

    @garhkal
    Rainmaker not sure about the rules in your state. But, if possible recommend Garhkal carry a .357 snub-nosed revolver (unholstered) in your pocket or butthole, just to be on the safe side. Nomsayin? Rainmaker Out//

    I think I just might build a fleet of security drones for use in retail stores.

    I'm sure that I can program them with enough intelligence to perform the duties of a fabric store security guard.

    Plus, I can guarantee that they'd never pester customers over mobility scooters or overstep their authority.

    Sorry @garhkal, you are out of a job soon.

    My security robots will be replacing you.
