urgh, this happened yesterday and its been bothering me! I went into the mac store with my bestie to purchase my second 226 brush and a brush cleaner, exchange a bad 134 for another one, and return an old foundation that wasnt my color.
I walk in and one of the MAs gives me a strange stare as i walk in, and i just kept it moving. So i go straight for the brush section and pick out a 134 and look through them to make sure it was good. The one i got from the other store had stretched hairs. (i dont know about you guys, but if im spending 50+ dollars on a brush, i'd like it to be pristine at the time of purchase)
Anyway, i forgot the number of the brush so i reach into my bag and check out the brush i wanted to exchange. Next thing you know the same MA heads up to the counter and i see a threesome huddling- once again i keep it moving. i saw them huddling because the brushes were right next to the registers. then my friend whispered to me telling me that they thought i was stealing and the security guard was called in. the person in charge of the store (im guessing) came and asked if i needed help. by this time, i figured i'd let her get the stuff for me. i took everything i needed out of my bag to complete my transaction, and then what topped the cake was that the card i used hadnt been activated yet. urgh, it was a new replacement card sent in and i forgot to activate it so it looked EVEN MORE suspicious.
I called the card company to lift the block so could make my purchase and browsed around a little more. I went in there looking to buy some eyeshadows as well, but the whole situation just made me feel so unconfortable that i left. i just needed to ventilate here, has anyone else been accused of theft and was innocent?
