Linda, that's what you call one of those red letter days for a cop. She and her fellow employees probably laughed about that one for days.
Ray...yep, that's what they tell me. They best not do it where I can see 'em because I will turn them in.
TO35, I was carried home in a police car when I was about eight for being part of a plot to steal magic markers. Longest two block ride of my life. I haven't stolen anything since then either. It didn't hurt that my father woore the seat of my pants out either and my mother cried for days. Talk about guilt.
Newgen, nope not Pufnstuf. His scedule has changed. I only see him two nights a week now, and he just stares at me like he doesn't know what to say. I give him a big smile and say hello and that's about it.
DR...There is a two hour (roughly) course that we have to take on the computer at Walmart to know what to watch for. That is for EVERY employee. Trying to combat shoplifting has to be the most expensive endeavor in this country for store owners. I don't think I would want to own a store.
Les. I got fired once for stealing a brownie. Back when I was waitressing for a living I changed jobs pretty often. Dairy Queen, eat all you want. Sonic, free meals. Circle B, half price meals. Chee Chee's, full price meals. I had been there two days and no one told me what their particular arrangement was with employees. A customer ordered a brownie and once I got it to the table, they changed their mind. I left it on the counter until the rush was over and then I ate it. Right out in front of God and everybody. They never even gave me a chance to pay for it, they just said 'we're going to make an example of you' and fired me. I guess it had been a problem. If they had said, hey, you don't get to eat here for free, I would have happliy paid for it, but they didn't.
DC...I love that story. (grin)
