At work we have to note down in a folder if and when we find ripped off tags, alarms or such. We then use this folder to keep a statistics about how much people steal and where in the store they steal from – in order to build ways to prevent it.
Today, while at work, I was walking around cleaning and folding clothes. I picked up a messed up pair of jeans and started to fold it when these fell out:
These tags are the type we have on accessories, and these jeans were not close to the accessories department. I went to the cash register and skanned them in. It was a belt and two pieces of jewelry. So then I had to note it down and put it in the folder with the rest of the found tags…
I am completely against stealing, however I can understand it in desperate times. If you’re starving and you steal a loaf of bread, or you’re close to freezing to death and you steal a sweater to keep warm – it’s not right but it’s survival. I would like to know when people started to need belts and jewelry to survive. Not that I think thieves read my blog, but if any happen to pop by: Seriously, you are stupid. Grow up and stop stealing.
Hope nobody takes this personally! Maybe this is the combination of a long day and my opinions! Have a nice evening!
