You're shopping in a store when another customer has a seizure, falling to the ground incapacitated and not lucid. The employees are aiding them, would you ask one of those clerks to help you find something in the store or would you wait?

I can't even imagine bothering an employee who was tending to a customer's medical emergency, no matter what my question was. Unfathomable.

I'd wait.

Well, maybe there was a limited time to use the double coupon...

No. I really can't fathom it.

...and I take it, that this is a "higher end" store? It's hard to walk around those, considering the density of "centers of the Universe" that are there simultaneously...

...and they're really just black holes.

Dang, messed up the answers. Let's just say "no" means wait. This happened, and not one, but two customers tried to peel employees away from the customer having a seizure. Hard to fathom.

Wth. Who sees a situation like that and thinks "now's a good time for my question"??? Were these people raised by chimps?

It was wild. One person was kind of like, "it's just a real quick question", the other was all, "HELLLLO, why am I not being waited on...". I was like, "oh I'm sorry I was just trying to make sure our other customer over here lives to see tomorrow."

I'm always beyond congenial and patient with customers, but I definitely gave that latter one my "are you f-ing kidding me?"-look, "do we really need to have this conversation right now?"

In Pittsburgh, there was a man passed out on the floor and multiple people walked by him. I was so disturbed. I called the clerk who called 911.

That's depressing, no one wants to be responsible. That seems to be a problem the more concentrated the area is. Other customers did express concern, and were about to call 911 before they realized I had, so those folks' response was heartening.

I can't understand why a person would want to walk on by. All they'd be responsible for at most is calling 911. Sad indeed.
