Today, a woman and her daughter came into the store I work at. The girl placed a pair of underpants on the counter, and confessed she had stolen them earlier. Assuming she had already heard a lecture, I simply thanked her for bringing them back. Her mom yelled at me for not yelling at her. FML

You are not her mom, that's her job to yell at her not yours.

It's not your job to parent a strange child.

Don't do her job for her by parenting her better than she can

You should just yell at the mother for yelling at you for not yelling at her daughter!

But then she would just yell at you for yelling at her for yelling at you for not yelling at her daughter.

The you should just yell at her for yelling at you for you yelling at her for her yelling at you for not yelling at her daughter.

My head hurts...

We should all just yell at eachother. STFU!

We should all just yell at urdirtyolduncle for yelling at us.

Urdirtyolduncle should yell at you for yelling at him for yellin at you.

We should all just yell at me because I don't give a shit! :D

I should just yell at urdirtyolduncle for yelling at me for me yelling at him for him yelling at me.

This is leading nowhere..

I hope gently informed the errant parent of her responsibility...

11s comment had me confused for a sec. Yeah I hope OP didn't yell at the idiot child. The mother who can't discipline her own child has that responsibility.

Yell at her for yelling at you for not yelling at her daughter. Who at this time may also be yelling.

After a series of yelling l, usually called an argument, I would just slap the mom. Not only for raising a thief, but for expecting the employee to parent her daughter.

88s comment is very well thought out. Basically: "slap-a-bitch" Works every time.

I guess its too late for a combo breaker.

Who steals underwear

^ A panty thief of course.. Nothing is sacred and your drawers aren't safe.

Whatta bitch.

hide yo' boxers. hide yo' briefs. they stealin' all the undergarments out there.

It's not your job to parent a strange child.

Tell her to forgive the child. Obviously she had a good sense of judgement for returning the underwear

Future underwear fetish?

33 I doubt that she decided to return them all by herself, seeing as her mother escorted her to the store. I'd say tell her to teach her children better so that they aren't stealing.

I've stolen some female underwear before, but in a sexy manner.

Children are not only raised by a single family. They develop through every interaction in society. Props for using positive reinforcement.

I'm sure that the girl's mom would've yelled at op regardless whether she yelled at the girl or not. I mean, in my opinion, I wouldn't want some stranger yelling at my child...

I stopped reading any that said anything about yelling.

Tell her everybody deserves a second chance.. Yelling twice is not going to help

Yeah, exactly. And she did the right thing by returning them so she should be given some slack.

I don't think you're even allowed to yell at customers, even if they're thieves... Nevertheless, you should have said something different then just 'thank you', shouldn't you?

There's nothing illegal about yelling at someone. It's really just going to come down to the store's policy and how powerful of a position the OP had at the store to determine whether or not she can get away with it.

...That's what I was trying to say. I know yelling is not illegal (like duh), but I think it's a valid reason to be fired for.

If you stole from my store and we see it we tackle you then beat you down

Do you do it in a clown suit? Cuz I can seriously picture that and may I say LOL XD

Let me revise this: Do you tackle and beat down customers in a clown suit? I infer this because your profile picture is a clown and if you do I will laugh and make a face that looks like XD.

Yelling isn't illegal but it's defiantly something you'd get written up for or worse fired.

aw FYL that was her job!

even if you did yell at her the mom would probably yell at you for yelling at her daughter.

She probably just wanted to yell at someone.

Mmmmm should have spanked her!

Kinky. I wonder if she wore the panties before returning them?

I was thinking the same thing.

Haha theyd be covered with black stains!!

78 - and how did you come to that conclusion ?

It's common sense.

Finder's keepers. Stealers Winners!!

You're fucking hilarious.

Definitely not your responsibility to discipline her/give her a lecture.
