Encomium NG reports that the embarrassment which led to his being battered and bloodied, and paraded for all as a common thief would have been avoided if :
1. He specifically told the sales boy that he was getting money from his car.
2. If he had left the phones in the store while he got the money.
3. If he had told the sales boy to accompany him to the car as he got the money.
4. If he had begged those beating him, and showed them the money that he intended to pay with.
