Very Bad At Stolen Goods

| Working | August 19, 2013

(I work next to a large electronics store. I see two guys standing by a display of PlayStations. This is when they are retailing for around $500. Suddenly, each of the guys reaches down, grabs a couple of boxed PlayStations, and runs for the door. The sensor alarms go off, loudly enough that you can hear them deep in the store, but neither of the two cashiers seem to notice. I see the guys run out to the parking lot and jump into a car. I get a good look at the car, and a partial license plate.)

Me: “I just got a good look at the car they jumped into. Do you need me to make a report?”

Cashier #1: “The car who jumped into?”

Me: “…those two guys who just took your PlayStations.”

Cashier #2: *looking over* “What PlayStations?”

Me: *in disbelief* “Two guys just took a couple of PlayStations each from your display over there. The alarm went off.”

Cashier #1: “Oh, I didn’t notice.”

Me: “Look, I think I’d better report this information. Could I speak to your manager for a minute?”

(The best part? The cashier does call the manager, but she listens to the story without writing anything down. When I ask if she’d like my phone number in case they need more information, she just shrugs. Something tells me they won’t be doing so well at inventory time.)
