Berated by LOD for potentially “scaring” guests
I had this story come to mind late at night.
It was a normal shitty day as a Cart Attendant in the summer of 2012 and I was trying to bring in a load of carts but I noticed the lanes I took to bring in the carts were blocked by police cars
In fact, there were police cars all over the parking lot. Maybe 2 at each entrance. I radio on channel 1, the main channel, that I cannot bring in the carts due to the amount of police in the way. They finally give me way to get the carts in and I saw that they were there to arrest 2 elementary age black kids for shop lifting. I kid you not.
Later, my LOD came all the way out to the back end of the parking lot where I was just to get in my face about possibly scaring the guests by talking about that on the main channel. What was I supposed to do? I was doing my due diligence by communicating the delay. And any guest would have come out and saw that there were cops everywhere. They are being stupid. My feelings weren’t hurt I was just appalled by her stupid thought process.
