About 3 years ago, I bought a car with remote started. That is when I started having problems walking through the doors of a local supermarket. When you leave, you pass through sensors which sound alarms if your purchase has not been properly deactivated at the cash register.
Now it doesn't happen every time. I think that they must get a lot of complaints from customers who set it off (person last night mentioned that anything electronic can set it off), and so they lower the sensitivity, and I have no problem. Then, they probably start noticing losses and they raise the sensitivity again.
Last night, as I walked in, I set it off, so I knew I was in for it when I left. And yes, the alarm sounded as I started to leave. So the greeter had to check over my stuff. I know she is doing her job, and the store has a right to protect her their assets. But last night, I was exhausted and cranky, and as I came up to the exit, I had my receipt in my hand, ready to hand it to her. I don't know if that made her more suspicious, but she spent about 5 minutes checking my five items against my receipt, and she even made a comment about me being in the way of someone else while I was standing there waiting on her.
I felt like crying, I was so tired. I don't want to stop coming to this store: they have excellent meat and produce at good prices. I don't want to make a fuss at the thing going off when I enter because a smart thief would use that as a cover to steal. But I also don't want to be held up every time I leave the store.
Is there any thing I can say to the store management? Or is that just the way it has to be?
