I asked the lady if she wanted to stay put and that I would lock the doors for her, but she refused. So I assumed there was no threat. And went on as normal business.

But I announced it over the PA system, bad move..
....Be cautious, that two customers have reported two men wearing masks. They never said they had guns.....They didn't say if they were still in the vicinity.


Reason for it,

I was like, if she is not worried and doesn't feel threatened, then neither should I. And with as many attempts that the officers have ran to my house from an unruly child or a shot gun victim, I was afraid to call 911. I really was.

"Why should they believe me?"

First, it's Monday, then it's Friday, now it's Thursday?? That was the only thing going through my head.

I was going to get the EYE ROLL from them.
Not her again.................

I didn't think they would remotely believed me.

And I told my manager, "You make the call, because if I call them, they probably they won't even bother coming here, not with as many as times as I have called them in the weeks, months or days.

Right then and there, shop was closed.

Now, I feel stupid.

If the store was busy, which it wasn't, I would of put everyone in a panic [dad said] because I acted like it was nothing.

I feel so stupid.

Hanging my head in shame.

In one year, everyone has managed to turn my life upside down.

I put everyone in risk at work and I didn't even know it...

I feel, really stupid right now.

What if, what if, what if.... stop worrying about it. From your OP you seem overly stressed as it is, no need to make it worse.

Hey there, Things happen.. Fear makes us to odd things as does worry, Dont beat yourself up and dont hold on to what if's.

Go with this. Did you do the right thing or the wrong thing? What did your heart tell you?

By doing the right can never go "wrong".

Mistakes are an opportunity to learn.

Look at it this way. A valuable lesson with no one hurt! You couldn't have a better outcome!

Btw, always trust your instincts. They exist for a reason.

Hugs to you, hope today is better!

Yeah, but the way I said it over the intercom, it was so casual.

Like it happens everyday..

Nothing to worry about folks, only two masked men outside possibly.

Everyone else was panicking, "call the cops".

And I was like "Why", they are not there anymore, you should be fine walking to your car just keep a lookout for them.
