GREAT comic! Wish we could do that to scammers in real life…!
Same here, man, same here.
I’ve seen this in reverse, actually. A “customer” went to the furniture department, grabbed a box with a shelving unit in it, removed the bits for the shelves, then went to the toy department, filled it back up with toys, and tried to walk out just paying for the $15 shelving unit.
I had someone attempt the same kind of crap at my store a number of years ago. Back when the Wii was first released and limited one to customer during the holiday season, we (a co-worker and myself) watched a lady duck under the retractable, grab a box, open it and placed the contents into another box. Then she put another Wii box into her cart and on her way to the front she handed the empty box to another customer saying that since she managed to get two the other customer could have the extra so they wouldn’t have to wait in line. Pissed me off so bad, but at least I got to see her escorted out in handcuffs (^_^)
I think everyone has a similar story. With me, I work security. We have this one big-box store that I won’t name here, but you can probably figure it out. Anywho, every year, around Christmas, we have people bringing things back because they don’t work, etc. The thing is, they give these people store credit, rather than going back with the customer and getting the replacement. I’ve seen people go in with what amounted to an old TV crammed into a bag, and walk out with a brand new 50″ 1080p HDTV. It makes me sick, but there’s not a damn thing we can do about it. We’re not responsible for any loss that occurs internally; we’re only supposed to patrol the parking lot.
And get called pigs, apparently.
This happened at a Wal*Mart I work at. I found pieces of a wooden medicine cabinet and the instructions for a laptop computer but no cabinet box or computer. I told electronics and they said; “Our computers are locked up.” We went to go look and sometime during the last staff meeting, someone had broken into the computer section and TAKEN one, put it in the medicine cabinet box and walked out with a $400 computer for $30! Even as I was annoyed, I had to admire his gall!
Ah, child violence. Solving every problem you can think of. EVERY PROBLEM!!!
… does ninja rick’s katana have a fairy on the end of it?
possibly a bug but I think it must be a fairy. A ninja fairy. Of vengence-chan
