Went to buy some q-tips for cleaning ears and was told
they were in the far side of the you disgust me section
of the store, condoms and personal hygiene stuff mostly.
So I think they already might sort of do this so the idea is
to do the beaded curtain thing like the used to have in old
rental stores to cordon off the adult video section.
Id add a recording automatically triggered when someone
went in saying Customer needing assistance in the adult
diaper, condom, enema and anti gas medications section.
