Shops and security tagging

I do wish shops that use security tags remind staff to remove or at least have the alarm working so when I leave the store it sounds and I can go back and not find the tag when I get home.

Just bought 2 pillow cases from Laura Ashley, and have got home to find one is tagged, the alarm didn't sound when I left the store and I even went in next afterwards and the alarm there didnt pick it up, going to have to return to the store now and be treated like a shop lifter even though I have the receipt.

Boots did this to me with a pair on sunglasses in the summer and made quite a fuss when I returned a few days later with the receipt, nevermind me the customer being inconvenienced.

If its the type where a metal pin goes into the plastic tag, you can remove it yourself with a magnet.

Very annoying I know, especially as you're always made to feel that it's you!
