If I told you what it takes to reach the highest heights, you'd laugh and say nothing can be so simple.

I have a friend that makes a good middle class living, probably around $100k and he steals at the grocery store from the self serve checkouts. I just shake my head and can't imagine why he would do that. It disgusts me.

Getting harder and harder. I was at
the store a month ago was at a self
serve checkout and at the end it
wouldn't let me pay. A service guy
came over and entered a code
and a video popped up of me
accidentally waving an empty
bag over the sensor. To the
machine this looked like I was
passing an item over the sensor
and hiding the barcode so I
put it in the cart unpaid for. I
was shocked at how detailed
the video was.
I looked it up later and these are
being installed all over the country
in Walmart's and other stores.
They can't catch people stealing
but they can stop stealing at self
checkouts with this tech. If this
had happened halfway thru my
checking out it would stop scanning
until the attendant checked it out.

They had theses self-checkouts years ago but got rid of them. I double charged myself for garlic salt. You can steal that one back for me EB.

Is garlc salt produce? I'm only
a produce booster, and that's
when the store has ripped me
off first.
The tech is far better now than
years ago, these things really
work. One thing that's hard to
stop is actual shoplifting. On
Live PD they caught a guy in
Target who had on 4 pairs of
pants and 12 shirts walking out
the door. He got caught that
time, it's all the other times
he didn't get caught that count.

Saw a woman who has been arrested
so many times for shoplifting that
no matter what she steals now it's
a felony. Even if it's a pack of gum.

Actually, the price of the 25 avocados was 62. 50 not $50. I feel better now
iwould say 97% of the people were wearing masks, mostly homemade cloth masks. I got everything I needed except meat was the highest price I paid in years. And there were no chicken thighs just row after row of boneless skinless chicken breast.



I hope YOU were wearing a mask, as, perhaps, the only true bandit there!

I'm pretty sure my local Publix Supermarket would replace bad produce free of charge, based on my word alone. No thievin' necessary.

BTW, do all supermarkets across the country have 'one way' aisles now? Has anyone found one where the shoppers actually comply with this?
