Yes, it's more work than this inDUHvidual deserves, but I guarantee she won't try THAT one on you again.
I was thinking the same thing. "I'm sorry ma'am, not only am I morally obligated, but I am legally obligated to take that statement seriously, I will contact the authorities and ensure you get the protection you require".

Seriously, I think this is what you should have done. Let's say she actually did off herself, I guarantee her family would be suing the store for not taking her seriously.

Talking

Apparently, she came into the store today at 8am, to buy a new phone. The phoneshop doesn't open until 9, lol. And I was told by the security guy that was in, all the staff that work on CSD started laughing when she couldn't see or hear them

[EDIT] I was told by the colleague that sold her the phone that he set it up so her saying it was broken when she opened it is BS

Also, thinking of what Irving said, I mentioned it to another mgr, and he said 'As long as she does it outside the door, that's fine'

[EDIT] Mentioned wrong poster

She bought in just a week, yet says "hag; But this phone is my life, I have people I need to keep in contact with, etc, etc".

If she bought that soon ago, it should be no problem telling the few people who would ever want to talk to her a new phone number AGAIN!
BH, apprently, she had a contract with us, and this was a replacement phone

That's actually not a bad idea. How many suicides have happened because people ignored the signs? This is clearly a SIGN. Call the authorities and let them deal with it.

Yeah yeah, I know it'll never happen, but still.....I love the way you think.

So I'll start right off the bat by admitting that I am a horrible person.

I'd have been so, so, so very tempted to offer her a few ideas on effective ways to kill herself, ending with a cheery, "Good luck!" when she started screaming at me.

I gotta admit though, I also like the idea of taking her entirely seriously and calling the cops on her and putting her through the involuntary psychological hold.
