PostSubject: Have a Laugh On Me   Sun Dec 04, 2016 3:53 pm

After losing my wife to lung cancer I spent 5 mostly miserable years alone before meeting my present wife. We got married exactly one year to the day after we first met up. That was seven happy years ago.


I decided to buy a new suit for the Wedding and went to Boundary Mills Outlet near Walsall - where I bought a Boss suit for a great price. I took it to the payment desk where the assistant folded and packed it nicely, I paid and then went on my way.


I bet you wonder where this story is going


I wore the suit at the wedding which went fine. Upon getting home I put it in the wardrobe and thought no more about it - until I wore it a second time to attend a formal dinner. On the way back to the car park from the dinner, my wife slipped her arm under mine and hit a lump under my arm. I was horrified to find it was a security tag that had not been removed by the assistant when I bought it.


No-one noticed at the wedding but it is visible on one of the photos.

I'm very surprised the Alarm bells didn't start ringing as you left the shop.

They didn't sound when I took it back.

Here's another similar true story.

I bought 6 bottles of Irish Cream (Baileys copy) from Sainsburys. In a daze I put just one on the belt and told the assistant I had six - she looked in my basket to check my honesty and rang up 6. She then removed the security cap from the bottle I put on the belt. 

When I got to the car I realised that 5 of the bottles still had the security cap in place - so I wheeled my trolley back to the store and spoke to the security guy whose desk is by the doors. He was not a bit surprised and admitted that the system was unreliable.

You would have thought that at least one of the six security caps would have set off the alarm.

I once bought a pair of shoes for work from T J Hughes,on paying the till-girl was talking away to another customer and forgot to take the security tag off--i went out and an alarm went off -no one bothered,as it happened i had to go back in -no alarm this time  then i went out of another door and still nothing happened--i had to go back the day after to get the security tag off.

Like you I have had tags that do not raise the alarm when leaving the shop... but do go off when you enter the next one. Grrhh.
