the other day at my retail job (at a newish store on the ave), a young lady came into my work with a shopping bag from the university book store. we check all shopping bags at the counter, which is a pretty common thing, especially on the ave. our conversation went like this:

me: "hi etc, can i check your shopping bag for you?"
her: "oh. do you have to?"
me: "yes, its our store policy."
her (now all sassy): "uh, then i wont shop here."
and the broad walks out!

we've had this happen probably 10 times since we opened three weeks ago, and nobody can figure out why. do you think we are going to steal something from your rite aid bag? what is in your shopping bag that you are so ashamed of us seeing? omg are you buying TAMPONS?!?!?! GROSS.

can somebody please explain this to me because it makes me sad and confused when people get huffy and walk out of my store.
