In our lobby at work we have a crane game and an ambulance for kids to ride. They are both plugged into the same outlet.
Well around closing time last night these kids about 15 and 16, thought it would be HILARIOUS to come into my lobby and unplug my machines.
The first two times they ran away before I could get out there since we were so busy, but the last time I did yell at them.
I said *This is not acceptable. If you come back into my lobby again, I will call security to escort you off the property* Now when I say *Yell* it means I may have raised my voice a little but I didn't like scream at them or anything.
So they ran home crying to Mommy like little brats because the big mean lady at the store yelled at them for unplugging my stuff.
Their Mom CALLS MY STORE and yells at me! Says how dare I yell at her kids for *Being kids*
I hung up on her after telling her that if I saw her boys on my store's property again I would call security and let them deal with it. We don't have security on premise but we do have the local police we can call who will come right over, we pay them to patrol the area about once an hour or so since I work in a shopping center.
Seriously though, kids being kids is not unplugging 2 huge machines that could have electrocuted them. That's something a 2 year old does, not a 15 and 16 year old!
My parents never would have allowed me to be in a shopping center at night at 15, nor would I allow my son. If I found out he did some stupid shit like that I'd make his ass write lines. *I will not unplug the machines in (my store's name)'s lobby*
My 4th grade teacher used to make us write lines and boy do I remember that cause it WORKED lol.
