Today was not a first, but definitely one of the funnier theft events in my career at my current employment. Today, a woman walked by two people on cash, while on her phone, with a basket full of merchandise. And she kept going. Brazen as all can be. So of course, I followed her out, because at first I thought maybe she had denied paying for a bag and was carrying everything to her car. Not unusual, but not typical either to take a basket out of the store. But no. No, this woman decided that she was going to take all the merchandise, basket included, and just leave. Without paying. Two ladies were outside waiting for a ride and saw her. They told me she just walked, really fast in a certain direction. She had gone past the point I was allowed to go, so I ran in and grabbed my boss. He left and got everything back. First, she tried to say she paid, but had no reciept to prove. And then she tried to still take a few items, hidden in a flyer. He got everything back. What. The. Actual. Fuck. LOL The balls ob some people.
Don't be like that lady, folks. People do notice when you think you're being clever.
Also, we don't give a flying fuck why you're buying awkward items. Explaining why you're buying Anosul or Depends is way too much information. I can tell you with the utmost confidence that no cashier cares why you buy what you buy. Ever. Zero fucks. Cashiers only care if you're making their job difficult.
