Had to swing out to PO this morning and picked up a few things at local store while out.
As I drew up to park - started watching a few folks and noticed how ''white'' they were. This decided me to make an assessment of all in the store while I got my stuff.
Headcount - 11, excluding clerks. Condition of 10 - whiter than white!. Just one guy who while he shopped scanned subtly as he went - good chance he carried tho I couldn't make him, nor him me I might add. Our eyes met briefly once - and while no body language exchanged - there was a sorta invisible ''nod''!
A BG coulda come in there to rob and never been seen right up until the moment he pulled a gun - by clerks or the 10. That's not to say the other guy or me would have had a lot more warning but - I noticed he took stock of each entering or leaving customer as I did.
No big deal - just staying in touch with surroundings but I reckon all the other folks could make easy marks with their potential ''victim'' labels. I guess something approaching 10% sheepdog in the mix ain't too bad, these days :wink:
