Hit Their Tea-Light Total Super Fast

, , , , | Right | October 30, 2018

(At the store where I work, we are currently selling black LED tea-lights for Halloween. They are fairly small and come packaged in boxes of four.)

Coworker: “Hey, [Manager], I found this sitting in one of the aisles.”

(She comes to the register carrying a shopping basket with a box of Halloween tea-lights. The box has clearly been tampered with and one of the lights is missing.)

Manager: “You found it like this? Did you see the missing light nearby?”

Coworker: “No, I checked the shelves, though. No loose lights.”

(We ponder this for a moment, inspecting the box. The packaging has been torn open and the cardboard tray the lights sit in has been pulled apart; someone clearly yanked the tray out and stuffed it back in.)

Me: “So, you’re telling me this person went to all this trouble to steal just the one tea-light?”

Manager: “Looks that way.”
