Not that I've ever suggest anyone actually do such a thing....

wink wink, nudge nudge..

Why take them off products? I work in security as well and there's tons of these 'hard tags' laying around everywhere:

In fact when you're on checkout you have a box of them under your checkout.

But better yet, when I work on security we have to cut off these new 'soft tags' that come on clothing when checkout staff forget to scan the clothing properly.
They're basically this:

Inside a small fabric pouch. You're suppose to cut it off and cut it in half BUT I found you can cut it off, pull the fabric off and you're left with one of the picture above (except stuck together) and when you peel the whit bit off and are left with the wiring it's sticky, like really sticky.

Do you know how many times I've walked out of a store with that shit still attached to my purchases? Too many to count...

Do you know how many times I've been stopped by security? never.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I just bought some bras and the checker forgot to take the hard tags off which I didn't realize at the time I walked through the security scanners which beeped but I thought it was someone else going through at the same time so I kept on walking to my car. No one came running after me. When I got home I had to cut the damn things off with heavy duty wire cutters.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Never tried that. I always end up going back to the store. I try to get there when they first open with the bag, my receipt in hand (just in case there's an issue). When it's clothing.

Once best buy forgot to remove it from a camera I bought. That one I did cut off the box. It was wrapped with a bungee cord like thing. Dodgy

Back in the early 2000s, I was working for a retailer who started using the sticker tags on everything. There was one manager that nobody liked, so, a little sleight hand and I had hidden 3 on him. One in his pants pocket, one in his jacket pocket, and one inside the fold of his collar.

Boy was he pissed. He probably set off that alarm a dozen or more times before he found all 3 and due to idiotic corporate policy, he had to submit a report every time the alarm went off, even if it was just "unknown alarm".

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

In fairness the job is so mind numbingly boring the security staff were probably asleep.

If you have a magnet (something a little more powerful than a fridge magnet mind you) you can get them off that way. Put the magnet on the nobby plastic bit and pull the pin out. That's how we get them off.

Those are called spider tags. The checkout operator who sold you the camera with a spider tag still attached is a fucking moron.
Did it look like this?

I am very familiar with said paperwork. Dodgy

I agree. While working at a fast food joint in high school, a customer like that was blowing up on a coworker and the manager told that customer that they were no longer welcome in the store and needed to leave.

The incident was resolved more quickly this way. The manager was thinking about both the effect on his employees, and the disruption to others in the restaurant who are also customers. Why let one rude person ruin the dining experience for other well behaving customers? Some customers in the dining room actually came up to that manager and told him they thought he did the right thing.

The customer might always be right, but it's also true that not all customers are good customers. That nasty customer deserves the negative publicity they might get from this incident.

The thing is, if a customer is at the point where they're literally yelling at staff they're probably so upset with their product/service they aren't coming back anyway so no real lose.

Yea, the checkout operator was an idiot. How you don't see one of those is beyond me. I'm surprised the security staff didn't stop you either, they set the gates off more noticeable than all the other tags and the tags themselves actually go off (thus why they're so bulky). Where you shop really needs to sort their EAS gates out.

You can take them off with a magnet also.
