Safeway Security Keeps Me Safe

Safeway, 8:30 pm.

After a homeless man saunters out of the store, an alarm is immediately sounded via telephone. Two security guards and a bagger book it out the door, and with an apology, my cashier runs out mid-transaction to watch the scene unfold.

Two minutes later, one of the security guards returns, triumphantly brandishing….soap.

    god damn. these companies need to just do the right thing, let the dude have his soap, and write it off as a loss. or better yet, give away some free soap. but oh right, if they give anything away, it has to go through the “correct channels.”
