Spill Something on the Floor and Walk Away
Malls are known for their food courts, and often the malls pump the scents throughout the ventilation system in order to build an inescapable high-calorie hunger. Some stores are even nice enough to let people bring in food or drinks. This gesture involves some level of responsibility on the shopper’s end as well. Accidents happen, but if you happen to spill your chocolate shake all over the floor, a stack of chinos, or in front of the store—tell someone.
There’s a good chance that your toddler accidentally took the soda you gave them—what’s up childhood obesity—and threw it down, causing a catastrophic mindfuck of a mess. It’s not the end of the world, but it sure sucks to get paid $7-per hour and now have to take up janitorial responsibilities you never signed up for. Run, flag down the employee, and ask if you can help clean up the mess. In the end, you seem like a decent human being.
