i had my first experience of (at least, knowingly and obviously) being followed by security today. i was headed to the post office to (finally) mail my taxes when the light dawned and i realized that Bartell's would have envelopes, cheaper than the post office and i wouldn't have to stand in the large-assed line that the downtown post office always has. so i ducked into Bartell's with a full bookbag (i'd been to the library), flashed the security guy a big grin, and had the pleasure of being followed by security until he either got bored or determined that i really didn't want to steal two dollars worth of envelopes, one of the two.
i was amused. :)
anyone else ever been followed by security or have good rent-a-cop stories to tell?
