I was reminded this morning of how important it is that we shoppers be vigilant while working, and do not hesitate to cancel a shop if we don't feel safe.
While doing a series of real estate photo audits a couple of months ago I became increasingly concerned about the sketchy apartments I was auditing. My hackles went up at one place in particular, but as it was next door to the police station I (foolishly) decided to finish. I then canceled the rest of the route.
On the news this morning there was a double homicide right where I had been standing when I got the creepy feeling.
