This morning my trust in people is being tested. It was brought to my attention this morning that last night someone tried to steal something from the store while taking a workshop. The product didn't make it into the persons bag but was on its way there when she was asked whether she wanted to purchase it. Of course she had a lame excuse.
I have had my suspicions about this person before but have never caught her with something in her bag. So what do I do? Do I go to the expense of installing camera's? Do I confront her? and then be accused of slander. Perhaps she has a problem and can't help herself if so get help. I am a small business owner who has enough paying the day to day bills I don't have a cushion for theft. Plus I don't want to have this distrust, I enjoy my store and my customers.
So if you are reading this and you know who you are then be aware that I and all my teachers are aware and will be watching.
