We don’t always get our man

Hi Folks-

Well it was Monday with a vengeance at the store. It was actually pretty busy for lunch which was nice. What wasn’t nice is that while I was wandering around doing my Monday orders I caught a person shoplifting. It happens but damn, it pisses me off. It also gets my heart rate going at about a hundred.

I am glad I was out there doing my orders. It was a twentyish guy, pretty affable, chatting about the cool stuff. Little tough looking with his bomber jacket and his hoodie and a bruise on his cheek but you know, it takes all types. Honestly I started to doubt his sincerity when he started waxing about the squid ink pasta, didn’t really look like his thing. I kept myself between him and the beer cooler because by the time he was close enough to chat I was engulfed in a fog of alcohol fumes and I started thinking he might need to be moved along. So I stood there doing my orders and watching him…looked down, looked up and saw him stuff something under his jacket and briskly walking for the front. I did the usual loud “Hey…hey you stop.” Unsurprisingly, he didn’t and treated me to a sincere “F*** You” at the door.

What can you do? I’m investing in a couple of cameras but God it was so frustrating to just see him walk with our stuff. I had a moment, fortunately very short, of wanting to grab him. But grabbing the twenty year old drunk criminal type is not bright and my higher brain took over. We called the cops and they were great, responding quickly and I saw them cruising around looking for him. So inexpensive cameras here we come. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Week has got to pick up from here.
