the lady blatantly followed me and it was so obvious she thought I was shoplifting
I wonder why they do this.
At first I thought that they were merely waiting to assist, but several times when I have asked where things are they were unable to help find them. So it is obvious that they are there for shoplifting and not customer service, but why? Do the British indulge in mass shoplifting there? or, indeed do the Russians?
Or is it the locals (who don't seem to use Newtons a lot) that have caused this?
Being a big ugly bloke I am not that bothered if they want to follow me around the shop but I can understand that some would feel uncomfortable in these circumsatances.
Strange that although WE appear not to be trustworthy, we are expected to leave our belongings outside the shop and trust their security to look after them.
Strange also, is the apparent lack of trust there, when any other shop appear to be happy to say "pay us tomorrow".
