I'm just curious. I've seen my third pack searcher so far and thus far have not confronted any of them.
Last week I saw a guy in Target going through every single pack of Topps Football cards. He would take one out of the card box, examine it and then put it in another pile. He must have had been through twenty packs or so when I first saw him. I stood and watched for a few seconds, debating if I should say anything. but ended up just walking away. When I came back a few minutes later though, he was still at it. I really wanted to say something at this point but was to afraid to. I'm not good at confrontation. Hell, sometimes I cry when ordering at Mcdonald's on my own.
I wish I would have said something though. Or gotten the manager, which I also debated about. I don't know if they would do anything though. Plus that would be a strange conversation to have with someone that doesn't know cards.
"Sir there is a guy feeling up the packs."
I just feel bad for kids that buy cards or even adult who don't pack search. They ruin it for everyone else. There is nothing quite like ripping open a pack to find an auto or even a jersey card. At least for me. Or even if people don't care about the over produced jersey card going for 1.99 on e-bay, sometimes the cards wind up getting bent or messed up by over zealous pack searchers who make a TSA enhanced pat down look tame.
So far all the pack searchers have been middle aged men that are slightly obese. Or more than slightly. Nothing against, slightly obese middle ages men, it is just what I've seen thus far.
So just wondering if anyone with more balls than me has ever said anything to one. If so, how did it go? What did you say? What was their reaction? Or if you didnt, why not? Or would you if you had the chance?
