We hear about stories like this from time to time and every time, we wonder, how the hell does something like this happen?!
A woman in Florida stopped at her local CVS store last Monday night on the way home from work to pick up a few things.  When she made her way to the front of the store to check out, she noticed that there were no employees there.  The doors to the store were closed and locked.  She was all alone!  So she started banging on the doors, which caused the alarm to start going off.  The woman eventually called 911 for help.

The police showed up on the scene and could not help at all.  They called the woman's phone to let her know that they were there, but that the large metal doors were keeping them from getting to her.  So they called the store manager to come unlock the doors.

After being trapped for about 40 minutes, the woman was finally freed when the manager arrived.  The manager admitted that they employees did not follow protocol when closing the store (ya think?!) and that they would be re-trained so something like this didn't happen again.  A district manager also contacted the woman and offered her a $100 gift card for her inconvenience.

Seems like a pretty good deal to us! Enjoy the news story!
