How Did You Catch Me?
Some shoplifters are extremely sly and hard to catch in the act. Others are, to borrow a phrase I heard James Garner use when he was playing Bret Maverick, about twelve biscuits shy of a dozen. One of those was caught in the Rome, Georgia Wal-Mart. He attempted to leave through the garden center with a few things hidden in his pants. What was he trying to steal? A rotisserie chicken, some hot wings, a mouth guard and two toothbrushes. How he thought that wouldn't be noticed is amazing. Secondly, those chickens are kept hot so that must have been extremely uncomfortable. Am I shocked to hear about this? Not really. I have seen so much of this type of stupidity I just shake my head.
Last night when I was sorting out a pallet of frozen foods I saw something that made me smile. Some cookies that went to to the bakery department were labeled "sugar free and no sugar added." It was very reassuring to know that.
