Haven’t come across this term until just reading it in the paper now. To “bomb” someone or smother them with so much love that they will completely forget their ill-intent.
Apparently this is being used by a supermarket chain in the UK. They had been seeing a rise in theft and shoplifting from their stores.
How did they combat this? By training their staff to be extra polite, extra helpful and extra caring towards every single customer that walks in.
Apparently it works, and it makes shoplifters think twice before squrrelling things out the store!
