Just caught me a couple, and I'm furious! Two ladies in, one stoned out of her mind......wanted to buy a couple of pairs of new Nike shoes.....the tags in one pair says $18, tags in the other say $20.........rolled 'em over, and the permenant price on the bottoms are $40 and $45!!! Needless to say, when I called her hand on it, she didn't want 'em.....heard her muttering about it on the way out! I hate, hate HATE thieves!

I don't understand KittenKrazy...How did the ladies get the tags attached to the shoes?
or were they just sticker tags?

Good for you in catching them out though!
Its frustrating.

Hey hon, our shoes have a price marked on the bottom with a paint marker, and there is a paper, sticky tag in them too, that has a barcode, description and price too.......easy to switch, but we have to sell them for what's on the bottom, 'cause it can't be switched.

where do you work? I have never heard of a store using marker to write on the bottom of the shoe unless it was at Goodwill..and $40 at Goodwill would be insane...will it come off once the people buy the item?

Lol, we sell new and returned shoes here, it comes off with nail polish remover or WD-40, depending on the sole.

We have a couple of druggies living in the end apartment (evicted today, thank God)
and they steal WATER!! The apartments next door have been vacant since the hurricanes because of water damage & mold, & we have been seeing them making trips over there with 5 gallon buckets. Pathetic.
It never ceases to amaze me how drugs can become the top priority in the lives of some stupid fools.

"They’re thieves! They’re thieves! They’re filthy little thieves!" *gollum!*

This last fall we had a weedwhacker that was really on its last legs, and a 6-8 year old very used tiller stolen out of our outbuilding when the catch on the door didn't (catch that is). At first I thought only the whacker was gone when I came home to a door flapping in the breeze, and we were just going to let it go until I remembered that I hadn't seen my tiller in there. As I told the officer who came to take the report, I don't know why they took those, they had to move a half dismantled motorcycle out of the way to get to the tiller, meanwhile had left a practically new 18" chainsaw and all of hubby's tools. Of course the brush mower would have been rather large to get into the trunk of a car ... It never ceases to amaze me what people try to get away with. Didn't really try to find the tiller and weedwhacker, the two of them together would've been worth less than $100. I've got a nice shiny new ryobi whacker with mini-tiller attachment now ... and two nice shiny new locks on the outbuilding .

Somebody went into our shed last summer and stole a huge spool of weed-eater string and our dog's harness!

Go figure.......we had chainsaws, weedeaters, bikes, and numerous other valuable items in there. My guess is that it was some kids who did it on a dare. I dunno, but we installed dusk-to-dawn lights in case we forget to turn the lights on at night. That's kept them away so far.

Exactly what kind of drugs are you guys talking about? Because, while there are certain drugs that are addictive enough to make you steal in order to get the cash to fund your next hit, I don't think the turn over on a couple pairs of Nikes would get you much.

Stealing water is terrible, of course, but again, I doubt that the "drugs made them do it". They can't sell the water, so I fail to see the connection between that and the drug use. Basically, what I'm saying is that this water thieving behaviour should not be blamed on the drugs, but on the person (in this case....I'm NOT saying that drug use doesn't influence behaviour).

they COULD be on one of the drugs that makes you paranoyed and they could think that someone contaminated their water
post #16 of 23
Hey, they could just be so broke they couldn't pay the water bill

Hee hee, maybe broke because they were buying drugs

Joking, of course!!!

Over the weekend, I received an email from a 16 year old. Her 7 Labrador puppies were stolen.

Don't get me started about the folks who'll eat half of their Big Mac and then bring it back because they wanted extra pickles and then expect us to give them a brand new one!

When I worked at Walgreen's, people would dig a receipt out of the garbage, go to another Walgreen's, shoplift the items on the receipt and then try to "return" the items at the original store for cash. We learned to spot these people - they would hit the same stores over and over.

Man, that just gets my goat! I just don't understand people....glad you caught them Cind!!!

Over there in Cincinnati, you get murdered for your Nikes. Stealing? Nah, they just shoot you.

The only thing I have ever have stolen from me was my Identity.

My girl's daddy opened a credit card in my name & charged a bunch of stuff. Talk about feeling violated. I am WAY paranoid now with my credit... I have this credit-watch thingy thru my mortgage ppl, where I get credit reports every 6 months and if someone pulls an inquiry on me or tries to apply for credit under my SSN, they call me on my cell phone. I also have fraud alerts plastered all over the place on my name & SSN due to what he did.

And yeah he's on drugs, he blames everything on the drugs. Problem is, the drugs don't reach out and say... "use me... use me...."... it takes a person to WANT to use the drugs... or should I say, ABuse the drugs?

So, yeah, thieves suck.

I must've been a thief in my last life b/c I've had so much stuff stolen from me! The worst is when I was living in Charleston and a drug addict broke into my house while I WAS SLEEPING and stole money out of my roomates room ( she had class that morning ) and stole my purse with everything in it! Then he would break into my car at night and steal my loose change.Eventually I left the windows down so he wouldnt break them! I saw the guy I suspected one night at a gas station and told him I would give him change evertime I saw him if he " LOOKED AFTER MY HOUSE AND CAR " I never got robbed again!

I once thought i had a friend, i was 15 and i left my money on the table it was $70 AUD she was over on the thursday night i didnt take notice of the money that was on my desk untill friday afternoon she popped up with $90 where as she had NEVER taken more than 20 with her out, she said her parents gave her the money to buy new bikinis but she didnt even buy them and she never went clothes shopping with out her mother.

Last week My mothers so called friend came over with her daughter.
My mum did a test and left 20 euros on the desk and another 20 next to the tv In my room.
when they left my mother went and checked and they were gone.
They came back the next day and my mother went crazy at them and the lady apologised and gave the money back to my mum.
Now my parents dont want anybody over in the house anymore unless its family
