Why would someone do this? Have you ever "hidden" stuff at a store?

My husband runs a Hastings. For those who don't know, Hastings sells books, movies, CDs, video games and stuff like posters and t-shirts etc etc etc.

People come in all the time and hide things they find offensive. They bury it in with other products or turn books around. One time they found all of the copies of a book bashing Obama hidden all around the store. Just recently someone turned all the issues of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue around so you couldn't see the cover. One lady used to come in every year and complain about the sex books and love coupons being displayed around Valentine's Day...

I just don't get it. If you're that offended... don't buy it lol.

Have you ever done that?

  • Yep. I have turned around a copy of Maxim magazine at a grocery store. The woman was naked! They should sell crap like that at porn shops.

  • The only thing I have ever done was while volunteering at a thrift store and we get donations of sex books, shirts with naughty sayings those are things I don't put out in the store and set aside in case some other volunteer wants those things

  • No I don't do that but people can be really annoying. One of our cherished freedoms are freedom of press. Freedom to be heard whatever your viewpoint is. I find it wrong to try to hide the media you disapprove of. Plus it's just crazy to waste your time at one place doing this, there are tons more out there.

  • That's sort of funny, but really, some people just have way too much time on their hands.

  • Yes... If its immodest or offensive I flip it around at the register that I'm at.
