The Times They Are'NT a-changing

Yesterday at work I was covering the front checkout while my trainee was working the photo lab. In the mid-afternoon a young man came in, I would guess he was between 15 and 17 years old. I greeted him and he went back into the aisles. He returned a few minutes later to purchase one item. That item was a home pregnancy test. I think he was between 14 and 17.

I mentioned this to a coworker who shared a related story. Last week a 12-year-old girl was caught trying to shoplift a home pregnancy test. Her mother was called to the store and in addition to paying for the test, she made her daughter go to the restroom in our store and take the test right then and there. Needless to say, mom was upset, and no one knows the outcome of the test as mom was already upset at the prospect.


Wow.
