(I work the front end, overnight at a retail store.)

Coworker: “There’s a girl with pink hair with a few guys and I think they stole a bottle of alcohol.”

Me: “Okay.”

(Since I can’t stop them, all I can do is watch to see if I can somehow call them out within the rules, and just make sure they don’t get into anymore trouble. A few minutes later the group in question walks by from the other end of the store. They leave quietly and I can’t particularly see any stolen items on them, so I let them go, but I still make sure to greet them.)

Me: “Have a good night!”

(Just a few minutes later, the girl comes back in and walks down the only register I have open and grabs a bag a chips. I stop what I’m doing and head to my register.)

Me: “Hey there, ready to check out?”

Pink-haired Girl: *loses her big grin and stares shocked* “Oh, um, I was just looking around. Actually… I need to grab my money.”

(She runs to another lane and quickly puts her chips back and runs out of the store. She never comes back. The only thing I could think of was that she literally didn’t see me and thought she could steal what she wanted from the store because no one was around to watch her!)
