Shoplifting - S2-E6

Question: Jo, Blair, Natalie and Tootie look for a birthday present for Mrs. Garret. When they find a shirt for her Jo decides to try it on. When she comes out of the dressing room, to show it off, why did a security guard immediately walk up to them?

Answer: The dramatic reason is to move the plot along. But in real life, store workers can be suspicious of groups of teens because of the perceived higher risk of shoplifting. So the security guard may have seen them go into the changing room and decided to see what they were up to.
