Just as I was approaching the doors and was almost to the safety of my car…BEEP,BEEP,BEEP,BEEP,BEEP,BEEP,BEEP…WTF?!?
Of course Ella immediately began to scream so loud you’d think she just got a limb bitten off by a shark. I continued to the door trying to calm Ella down and was stopped by an overzealous
Best Buy security guy:
Best Buy Bouncer: “Wait a minute, ma’am!” (Ma’am?!? I’m a ma’am?)
Best Buy Bouncer: “You set off the alarm”
Best Buy Bouncer: “The alarm is set off when one of our sensors is detected on a product” (Uhhh, thanks for the lesson, I know how alarms work)
At this point the khaki pant/blue shirt-wearing dude was really starting to annoy me. Did he think that Britax made a stroller with a secret electronic smuggling pocket?
Me: “Well. I don’t have anything and I’m in a rush, so I’m going to have to go. Bye!”
Then came the awkward part . He just stared at me. Did I not wipe the toothpaste off the zit on my chin before I left the house? Not knowing what to do I bolted out the door and walk/ran to my car. I lifted Ella out of the stroller to put her in the car seat. That’s when I saw it. Lo and behold there was a Dora the Explorer Video Game wedged under her blankie. As if Dora and her damn monkey don’t annoy me enough on a daily basis. So I did what any honest woman who doesn’t like to be told she’s wrong would do….I walked back into the store, went straight up to Customer Service counter and said, “I found this video game on the ground in the parking lot”.
