I work in a mall and yeah, I do pay a little more attention to those that have large shopping bags than those that do not, especially if they take those large shopping bags into the fitting room with a bunch of merchandise. When people have a large, random assortment of merchandise and take it into the fitting room, chances are that a few pieces are going to end up "missing."
99% of shoppers are honest and I can usually tell after a few moments of watching which ones I need to continue to keep an eye on and which ones I need to leave alone.
Sometimes I tell my co-workers to keep an eye on another customer, but I always pull that co-worker faaaar away from the area, tell them, and then go about my way. Never, ever, ever, ever do you do this in front of customers. That's so wrong.
She should have not said that so loudly. I would have been embarrassed too.
