I just came back from the mall - I went into a couple of stores without incident, and then when I was coming out of the second store I'd been in I set off the beeper thingies at the door that are supposed to go off if anyone steals anything - it happens occasionally, so I thought no big deal. Well, after that, every time I went into *or* came out of a store, I set the things (what are they called?) off. This happened in at least four or five stores before I finally gave up and came home (it's pretty embarrassing being stared at like you must have stolen anything every time you try to leave a store). Why would this happen? I'm actually really nervous about it for some reason - not sure exactly why, I'm just super unsettled about it, not knowing why it happened. A salesperson in one of the stores told me that cell phones cause this sometimes, but I had my cell phone (and everything else I had with me) going into and out of the first store, and into the second store, and it didn't happen those times. Has anyone had this happen to them? Does anyone know what could cause it?
