A couple times per week Evelina works at a small women’s boutique here in town. It’s a neat gig because she gets a discount on the clothes which she loves because they carry things she’ll never see anyone else wearing. Anyway, last night she went in to work the store for a couple hours and I get a phone call from her. One of the girls was attacked by a lady who was attempting to steal a couple dresses and was hit in the face and neck about 20 times.
The girl was taken to the hospital and checked out, then released. She has some bruising on her face but no cuts or permanent damage. The police stayed at the store for the remainder of the evening and eventually reported they caught the attacker.
I worked retail for over 7 years and I can tell you I saw everything. The first thing you learn working retail is people are crazy. It’s just a matter of time before you see the next level of craziness.
I’m glad this girl is okay, but it has me wondering if Evelina should continue. After all, is a discount really worth it?
