Endangering life of a toddler is a “training opportunity” to Bed, Bath & Beyond

I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to corporate communication and don’t usually flinch no matter what bullshit the professional spinsters come out with.

Bed, Bath and Beyond takes the PR spinning to a whole another level in regards to a recent incident that played out in their store.

Some moron had left their 3-year-old baby locked inside a car in scorching weather. A customer asked if she could call 911 from Bed, Bath and Beyond. For some unexplained reason the store employees refused. A 911 call was made by some other means.

When contacted about the incident, Bed, Bath and Beyond had this to say:

Blah blah blah blah…We are pleased that the manner was addressed in a timely manner and will use this incident as a training opportunity. blah blah blah…

Isn’t that just lovely. Way to address the issue by completely ducking responsibility.

Update: Local authorities are looking into if Bed, Bath and Beyond broke any laws by refusing to call the police. The article also has a great quote from the BB&B staff:

They said store clerks refused, saying it was against its policy to get involved with parking-lot incidents, Bowe said.

Boggles the mind.
