    It was the Regional Manager who was in charge of the theater during the aforementioned house cleaning. I was called in to handle the technical side of the business until the problem was smoothed over.
    He and I, plus two line-level employees who didn't get caught in the drag net were the only ones staffing the building.

    We ran the entire 20-screen megaplex theater complex with a four-man skeleton crew for a week until the new general manager could be flown in from out of state.

    Yes, it was one of those industrial trash compactor/dumpster contraptions. Yes, I agree that it should be kept locked for safety.

    Finally... Yes, I also brought up the issue of the large sum of money lying out on the counter to the regional boss the next day when I came to work. It was an interesting (humorous) discussion.

    really should not be broken by people handling it. Someone was saved from buying a product which would have broken on them within a few weeks...

    The antique mall near me actually has one vendor who does nothing but cameras!! He leaves out on tables the Brownies, old meniscus-lensed folders, 1980s P&S cameras, etc., and already-broken/parts cameras. Anything intact and over about $50 is in the locked showcase. This is a pretty good balance. The broken/parts cameras in the open are useful to me, because I'll sometimes find something that I've never met in the flesh (only seen on eBay -- I live in mostly a camera desert) and can at least handle it, even if it is broken. It was from this handling that I for example discovered how BIG the Yashica TL Super is for an SLR, and first got to look through an OM viewfinder (wow).

    I think a broken/parts camera shouldn't have any problem hanging out in the open. If I thought there'd be enough interest, I'd set up a space at Trade Days... probably need to diversify for that, though. Maybe a few rustic-framed photos would entice folks a bit.
