Really it just makes you want to order stuff online and skip the store. They are shooting themselves in the foot.

Haha.......!

You know cleaning the Restrooms can't be too far off.
I thought a nice post retirement job might be driving the Zamboni at the rink, until I realized that the person running the Zam also cleaned the bathrooms.....

I know Costco now has self check out lanes but they have always had receipt checkers. I fount it funny that, prior to the self service lines, they checked receipts. Check your employees. They rang me up. Lol.

I think the point was to be sure you HAD a receipt, and not walking out as an honest person...if one wasn't.

Now, the local CVS tells us that a guy comes in once or twice a week, (for almost two years!) takes one or two qt bottles of beer, some snacks, and walks out saying "Touch me & I'll sue".
The cops aren't interested, especially with their 45min to 1 hr response time.
So all of us get to buy this POS his beer & snacks.
CVS will not allow employees to interfere.
If it were up to me, the guy would get one chance to put the stuff back & never return, or get a 230gr solution to the problem.

Sounds like there are others who feel the same:

A customer accused of fatally shooting a shoplifter who was fighting with employees at a Family Dollar store in Dallas has been arrested and faces a murder charge, police said.
Police responded to the shooting just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Family Dollar store at 3200 S. Lancaster Road. When officers arrived they found a man lying in front of the store with a gunshot wound, police said in a news release Wednesday. The man died at the scene.
Police said their preliminary investigation determined a fight happened inside the store when employees confronted the man about items he was trying to steal.
The customer, Kevin Jackson Sr, 47, walked into the store, saw the fight, and then shot the man who had been accused of stealing, police said.
The man, whose name has not been released, stumbled outside the store and collapsed. He did not have any weapons, police said.
Jackson was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to Lew Sterrett Jail.

There are very specific conditions under which you may 'lawfully' employ the use of 'Deadly Force'...in Texas.

Lacking more information, we simply can't say whether or not this was a 'good shoot'. But certainly not IF related to shoplifting/petty theft/misdemeanor theft alone.

I suspect the shooting was more related to the 'fight' alluded to.

Ah, good point. Although I do remember them verifying big dollar items are on the receipt. Electronics, tools, stuff like that.
I had them verify the numbers for a washer and dryer at home depot (box/ versus my receipt) because I didn't think something was right. Got home and unboxed the washer and dryer. 🧐🧐🧐🧐 They gave me the $750 dryer instead of the $350 one. They said I had the correct ones that I paid for. I only paid $700 plus tax for the pair. 😎😎😎😎

I’ve gone back into Costco to pay for stuff I put in my basket and didn’t get charged for. I also passed the receipt checker and had my blue marker line down it as proof.

Where do I fit in?
