Unless you’re a nurse.
At my old hospital, Code Purple was for a violent incident. The weirdest thing about those was that most of them were in the OB department.
When I worked at Target in the early 1980s, they had a code for all male employees to come to the front of the store immediately. I could count on one hand the number of times it happened while I was there, but it was something to watch. It was done for an incident that had turned violent, or had the potential to do so. The one that I had anything whatsoever to do with involved a couple who came through my lane, and absolutely nothing seemed remarkable or interesting about them, until they brought them back in this manner. The woman had shoplifted a 13-inch TV by carrying it out between her knees! :eek:
I heard about another shoplifting incident where they were concerned because the woman had a cast on her arm, which of course she could potentially use as a weapon. She got as far as her car, and when one man grabbed her keys, she started screaming “Rape! Rape!” in broad daylight.
I have a friend who works at Lowe’s. I should ask him. I’m guessing it’s something along these lines.
