Unfortunately, retail employees cannot do anything but stand by - for their own safety. I just hope some nut job doesn't come in there with armed for their next robbery. This store seriously needs a security officer AT THE Door.
@TheCatsMeow : My thoughts exactly. I would be looking for a new job if I worked there. I'd rather clean houses or something like that than to put up with working for minimum wage and having to worry about getting robbed.
