Is That a Guitar in Your Pants, or Are You Just Happy to See Me?


From Arkansas comes a story of a guy who tried to shoplift an electric guitar and a wireless sound system by putting them in his pants. Like Bubs said recently, if everybody acted like they had a lick of sense, he'd be out a job.

It reminded me of a story my mother tells. When I was little, she worked as a cashier at a National Tea grocery store. The employees observed a woman shoplifting a frozen turkey by putting it under her dress, between her legs. They followed her out of the store mainly out of curiosity to see how far away from the store she would walk with it.

When I worked retail, I was always amazed to see the amount of stuff that a good shoplifter could get away with. The gypsies were particularly amazing, as one could clear an entire rack of clothing in seconds while another distracted you.
