Scary!

I worked on the Fourth of July (Independence Day for Americans) and a very strange man came to my counter.  I work at Best Buy, a large electronics store, at the customer service / return desk.  You hear some weird stuff working with people but this guy was so mellow and non-descript it was strange.  He spoke very monotone, with no facial expression or voice inflection.  He was dressed in a black T-shirt that had faded a little with time, Jeans that were once black but now also faded and a black baseball cap.  It sounds weird to write it but at the time it looked more like a uniform than something someone would choose to wear.  There is even a restaurant near here that requires the employees to wear all black so the white apron pops.

As I went through the transaction, I smiled, was upbeat, and hit all the points I am supposed to.  As I was handing back the guys change I noticed the camera!  In the bill of his black baseball cap was a pin-hole spy camera!  It totally freaked me out!  Thankfully, we were already done and he was leaving the store.  I mentioned it to my supervisor but what can you do?

So now I don't know what happened.  Is he a Private Investigator that was out running errands?  Was it some sort of secret shopper?  Are we going to be on Dateline or some other investigative reporting show?  Or maybe he is just a creepy guy who likes to re-live his day.

Secret shopper or something? possibly hired by best buy to review customer service - possibly even hired by your boss if your store has had lots of complaints.

So what was he returning? Was it an item that he might have expected to have trouble with on the return policy?
Either way, be careful. Your Mom loves you!
