Well yesterday was like any other roll out day at work.
I had spent the majority of my day up on ladders with props and tools in my hands, when suddenly I heard my visuals manager, in his thick puerto rican accent, beckon me over quite urgently.
He told me, "Ashley, go outside and tell the security guard the man he is looking for is in here."
I tried to inquire about what the background story was, since I know this is not how we handle shoplifting situations, but he would not say anything more and urged me out the door.
Still very confused, I delivered the cryptic message verbatim, and to my surprise, the security guard knew what it meant. All he said was, "Don't worry ma'am, the police are on their way."
My curiosity got the best of me and I had to ask what was going on, but never had I expected to hear what I heard next--
Apparently in a different store (not ours thankfully!) the man had exposed himself and started urinated out in the open!
When the security guard told me, I kept my composure, but when I had to relay the message back to my manager, it was just too much. I had a very unprofessional awkward/confused/shocked laugh attack.
Later that day on my lunch break, I saw a lady in line with her entire rear hanging out--and I don't mean just sort of, I mean I could describe her very tiny undies in detail and entirety. I'm still not sure what was going on there, but what i learned that day was that people are crazy.
I know it's hot in arizona right now and wearing clothes can be a challenge, and i know sometimes finding a restroom in the mall can be really inconvenient, but people, no.
