Today, one of my employees called in after his 8-hour shift, explaining that he had bed bugs at home, found one on his shirt, and thinks they are in the store. I own a mattress shop. They'd spread. FML

Just Wish everyone who buys a matress Goodnight.
By the way, Notice how there isn't an already made button I can click for my comment #1

You must not know how difficult it is to get rid of bedbugs. It can cost up to several thousand dollars. Also no one wants to buy a mattress that was previously infested with bedbugs, so the mattresses might be rendered practically useless.

It is equally possible that the employee picked up the bed bugs from the mattress store. It sounds crazy, but there are a number of home infestations traced back to new, unused furniture.

Bed bugs are notoriously hard to get of and it's a very costly procedure. Plus they have to lose money while in the process, because they have to shut the whole store down. Also they may have to call all their recent customers and tell THEM that their home may now be infested with bed bugs and now they must complete this costly procedure on their home too. The store is either going to have to pay for that, refund the mattress (if they even want it at all anymore, I wouldn't) or both. Tons and tons of money lost in this scenario, along with their reputation.

Sadly, He'd be better off if it had burned down actually. Then, as long as he was insured, the insurance company would have covered it. Insurance companies rarely cover infestations....
