"We can never catch a break."
Those are the words of Sasi Sikares who along with Lee Bargwanna, co-owns the The Alley Lujiaoxiang bubble tea store in the Orange City Central.
Less than two months after thieves broke in and stole hundreds of dollars from the till, they suffered another setback when the tv screen out the front of the store was broken.
"It's school holidays and there was a group of kids sitting down and a girl was walking down the food court and went straight to a guy and threw a couple of punches at him," Ms Sikares said.
"I'm always like a boy shouldn't hit a girl, but you can't take that and he started throwing them back. So a security guard had to come over.
"The security guard was taking her outside and she was feeling frustrated and walked passed and punched the tv screen."
Ms Sikares asked that customers forgive the state of the TV while they line up a replacement and to say they are still open for business despite the setback.
She was also disappointed that nobody has stepped up and be held accountable.
"I was speaking to some of my friends and they were like 'isn't it the responsibility of the parent to pay for it'," she said.
"The kids and the parents don't seem to have to take any kind of responsibility.
"The parents should do more at home to stop them doing this kind of thing.
"Also, if anyone knows how to remove a curse that seems to just create the worst of bad luck, please let us know."
