25 (who?)

I caught someone stealing today

Wed Sep 4, 2013, 10:44 AM
Today a customer just walked out of the company I'm working for without paying for their goods :shakefist:
We have an entrance for employees that can occasionally be used as an exit if someone didn't buy anything. There is no checkout counter or control or anything, so an old woman (!!) walked by me with her bags (rather swiftly), so I called out to her 3 times that this isn't an exit. She ignored me until I stopped her, asked for her sales check, which she claimed to have lost. I asked on which counter she was, to which she replied she will go there now. :O
She then payed, but if I hadn't stopped her she would have effectively been a thief.

Bottom line: Never trust old ladies...

Scary though if you catch people double teaming, or a grown man. O_O Me and my best friend was in the store buying something and saw a man steal makeup. Being me and my friend quiet freaked out but managed to tell someone. Lucky he gave in calmly of what he tried to steal. O_O At times you can catch people even steal small bits of food, it makes me feel sad.

Sometimes, they don't want to do it, but they don't have any other option than to starve or die. It's sort of.... a dog-eat-dog world. I don't know exactly how it goes, but sometimes people steal and push it off on someone else, who pushes it back to them. If there weren't any homeless people, we'd know who was just taking it because they wanted it, not because they needed it.

Yea I understand food but something like makeup is stupid. I dont agree with stealing but sometimes people need to do what they have to in order to survive. I agree with you though the world's tuff and everyone's situation is different.

Yeah.... I mean, if someone's stealing makeup, it's either something someone else wants, and they're saving their own lives with it, or it's just selfishness. Most likely the second, as it'd still be selfishness to send someone else in for you.

''The people who are least expected are the ones to be suspicious of.''  Great job! But I didn't really expect an old lady to steal...
