There’s a large TV mounted on the wall at the liquor store where I work. The atmosphere is very casual, we don’t have any specific policies regarding it. We change the channel whenever we feel like it and it has Chromecast to connect to YouTube. There is a new girl who has been putting on things I don’t think are appropriate. We watch music, but usually pop from the 90s and she puts on bands like Die Antwoord. Aside from her choice of music being different from what we usually have playing, many of the music videos she plays have suggestive themes or content.
She also puts on videos like Creep Captures. I’m not sure if anyone’s heard of but they are a controversial group of vigilantes that lure out suspected pedophiles and film their confrontation with them. Personally I’m not ok with this as they have had some questionable behavior, for example chasing a mentally handicapped man into traffic. I’d rather not be seeing this at work (though such it’s such a hot subject I want to be careful what I say).
Any one could walk in and see the TV. What, if anything, should I say or do? I could just change the channel myself but she changes it back. Especially the pedophile one, I find disturbing and don’t want to hear about it (given the store layout you can’t get away from the TV).
To draw a bit more of a picture, the girl who does this is young and she’s in a punk metal band. Her general attitude seems to be “in your face” style entertainment. I know music is really important to her so I don’t want to offend by asking her to turn off her favorite song.
I understand and respect that people have different tastes in music. I consider this a problem more because of our perception with customers in the store. I didn't mean for this to turn into a large discussion.
