Yesterday my boyfriend went shopping all day with me because it has been about a year since the two of us have bought new clothes for ourselves. While walking around, we spotted Deb. I usually love Deb. With it being in the mall that typically means that food or beverage is sometimes brought into stores. Most stores will put up SIGNS if they do not want it in their store. A lot of places are perfectly fine (at this mall) with beverages, that have lids, being brought into their stores (especially if it is an adult carrying it around- we're both 22yrs old). The employee did not have to be so rude about it when my boyfriend and I brought our icees into the store. There was no sign posted and I explained it nicely to the employee that there wasn't one posted anywhere on the glass entrance to the store. She replied with "well I don't know what happened to them [and she went on for a few minutes about the magically missing signs]...... we don't allow beverages in the store. But we'll make an exception this time". If it weren't for the tone of your snobby voice, I would have been fine to continue shopping in your store. Since you copped an attitude with me, I headed for the exit. My boyfriend and I happily sipped on our icees in the next store.

Edit: I don't know what magical places some of you come from but at my specific mall we have signs. If the store does not want beverage or food within their store there is a sign stating so. The mall sells a lot of drinks (there are stands for Icee, Orange Julius, Caribou coffee...etc) right beside a lot of stores. The concept of having signs outside of a store is not new and has been around, at least in my state, for a while now.
