I know I should be happy that things have changed a lot since the second robbery. I'm glad that Jacob and Bonnie are doing something about our safety.
What I DON'T like, however, is feeling like I have to walk around with a group of employees. Yes, I'm grateful that Dan watches me walk to my car when I leave the store at night, but that's something that he's always done. I don't like that now we have to be suspicious of everyone that walks in the store. Retail involves a lot of being suspicious, sure, that's how you reduce product shrinking, but really, I don't think that that lady with 4 kids is going to hold us at gunpoint. When the other employees walk away from the counter, I don't like that they feel they have to ask me if I'm going to be okay up front by myself if they go and take a piss! Yes, I'll be fine. Acting like this is making me feel even more unsafe.
I can't even think straight anymore.
