Shoplifting, seriously

There comes a time in every one's life where you decided whether not not shoplifting is bad. For most people, it is at a very young age when you stick that piece of candy in your pocket that mom or dad said you couldn't have. Then, once you're busted eating it in the car on the way home you have to do the walk of shame into the store and tell the manager you stole it.

After all that, you get the lecture all the way home about how terrible stealing is and that you will have timeout when you get home. Yeah, there are those who do it a few times before it is ingrained in their head, but then there are those that never learn.

So where is this all going?

Well last week I went to the mall to pick up some new makeup and as I was walking to my car I saw something really strange. A person was reversing out of a parking spot when a man walked up to the car and tapped on the window. The driver doesn't do anything, and the man yells that he is security and she needs to roll her window down.

She rolls her window down and I hear the man ask her if she took anything out of the store. I guess she said she didn't and the man asks "what's that" as he pointed to her passenger seat. As I walk by I hear her say "that's my purse." He asks her to hand it to him and it still has the tag on it and it's from the store she apparently dashed out of. He then makes her park and she does the walk of shame back into the store.

I couldn't help but laugh about this. I mean I know people steal, and I do not condone stealing, but if you are going to do it then be smart about it. First, don't stop for a man knocking on your window, second don't put your stolen goods in the passenger seat for possible security guards to see and most importantly try to go into the mall to blend in, don't go outside where you're more than likely alone.

So yes, I just gave you my tips on proper shoplifting, I hope none of you use them.

LOL good tips!!! I could never shoplift... I'm the type of (silly) person who tells the cashier when she didn't scan an item. It sucks :(

Haha. that girl needs training! You're right, if you're gonna do something stupid, at least don't allow yourself to be caught. Tsk tsk!
