I think I've mentioned before that when I'm at work, anything that needs to go over the PA system is given to me (Yay theater training). One of the cashiers ask me over the headset to announce on the PA for a particular customer to come to the font. Later, I found out why.
A police officer had been called to the Bullseye next door on some boys that were trying to steal stuff (and obviously failing), being loud & profane, destroying a bunch of items, and then smacking an employee when the poor thing tried to get them to stop.
Turns out Mom had told them to 'go play' in Bullseye while she got something at our craft store. The officer called Mom out of our store to go next door and pay for all the items and damages (and hopefully apologize to the slave), or her kids could go to a corrections facility, and she'd be getting a visit from Social Services.
May all your customers realize you are not their babysitter.
