Yesterday, as I walked into Barnes and Noble, that security beeper thingie sounded. Since I had nothing in my hand except my purse, I just ignored it and kept walking.

An employee said: “Excuse me, ma’am, did you just beep when you came in?”.  And I replied that yes, I did, but I didn’t have anything on me to beep. He said that I should see “John” over at the counter, so they could determine what was making me beep and “disarm” it (not his word).

So John came over and asked me to walk back through the sensor “arch”. And I beeped once again. He said that maybe it was my purse. I left my purse on one side, walked through, and beeped again. He suggested that maybe it was my jacket. I took off my jacket, walked through and beeped yet again. Perhaps it was my shoes. I took off my shoes and walked through. And beeped. Maybe it was my sunglasses, took those off and yep, beeped again.

I then told John that I wasn’t taking off anything else, and he said that was fine, to not worry about it.

When I checked out, John was my cashier, and very kindly gave me an extra 10% discount because of my trouble. I reminded him that I was probably going to beep as I went out the door.

But I didn’t…..

My next stop was Kohl’s. When I went in, sure enough, I beeped. So I went to the first cashier I saw and told her what happened.  And, when I left, once again, I beeped.

I doubt it was my top, or my scarf.  It COULD be the jeans I was wearing. They’re fairly new.  But, when I got home , I searched them and found no security gizmo. PLUS, I had bought them at Kohl’s last week, and didn’t beep when I left.

So, beep-beep.  I’m clueless.

  1. Maybe just your magnetic personality???? Tee Hee

  2. hmmm…Is there an rfid tag embedded in your cute jeans? Still, so embarrassing.

  3. Ha ha! That is something that would happen to me I have worn jeans with a sensor still in them before— The kind that isf sewn in an extra tag inside them—and wondered what the heck that lump is on my leg. 🙂 Good luck finding the culprit. I think I agree with onespoiledcat—your magnetic personality. 🙂

  4. Once again electronic has bested everyone!! I’ve given up trying to figure out things like that!!

  5. It is just your magnetic personality! 😃

  6. I agree with Barb!!! You look great – which is important is you are going to go around beeping all day!!!

  7. I agree – magnetic personality ! – Good luck with the mystery – but didn’t when you went out – curious!

  8. Thanks for the idea (RFID). Now I know what I’m going to do for April Fool’s Day. Enjoy your beeps. I agree with the magnetic personality theory.

  9. As I read it, I had the same thought as all the rest– your magnetic personality. (We all think we are so clever!) But maybe it was your iron will? Or your shiny disposition? Or your electrifying knowledge? Shall I go on? 🙂

  10. Magnetic personality – yes! 🙂

  11. Believe it or not my husband once set off the beeper at the airport and the culprit was finally found to be the foil on the gum wrappers he had in his pocket.

  12. Your a beeper and so am I! I went through the security check at the airport and a woman said something under my left breast showed up. Well…don’t know what that could be. She asked if I wanted to go into a private room. I told her to go ahead and “feel me up” right there. So she did! Hmmmm what could they have possible seen? I don’t even wear a bra when I travel. Just a camisole. Too much information? But seriously? I had no necklace on or buttons. Just my camisole and sweater. Makes you wonder…

  13. ??
    Who knows ????
    Maybe their security thingies need work ?!

  14. I think its your electric personality! 🙂

    What a funny story, but I know it wasn’t very funny to you at the time.

  16. sometimes there is a hidden tag with swizzels of magnetic marks meant to be some kind of identifying item. It has happened to me before and this tag thing was the culprit. Yikes!

  17. itsallaboutpurple

    hehehe…look at me, look at me!!! good thing you looked good!!!

  18. That’s strange that you didn’t beep leaving B&N. I was going to ask if you had your car remote in a pocket, as that has been an issue before.

  19. I think the beeping was to announce “Pretty lady in store!” 🙂 That turquoise is your color, pretty lady.


  20. Well, if you had to be a beeper, at least you looked awesome when you received all that attention! 😉
