He's failed to demostrate the proper critical thinking skills and ethics to work in retail, however he'd fit in perfectly in high finance.

Yeah, give them a document with your full name, home address, phone number, and more...then rob the place. No way they'll be able to track you down.

"Honestly, I wasn't planning on stealing anything," he told KTLA-TV. "I was actually trying to get a job. And... what can I say? I'm a teenager, that's who's stupid."

There's no point of him starting his statement with the word "honestly".

LOL.... Me? Shoplift? Hell no.
But when I was working on my PhD I worked 3rd shift in a stop-and-rob in Lexington, KY..... Middle of nowhere right off the expressway.

Had Cops coming in all the time because they knew EVERYTHING they wanted was free.

Um.... Middle of the ghetto? Third shift? Um.... Cops were always a welcome sight.

SOmetimes allowing others to shoplift is the best decision you can make.

Puts me in mind of the Sonic I worked at. The manager would walk away with $50 or more a night by just not entering the orders on the box and taking the money. This guy though is a dumbass for not waiting til he got the job.

/Never joined the night shift manager in stealing money,though the General Manager would straight take if from the safe to pay for his pill habit.

Let's see, minimum wage, low hours, busting your ass to make the owner slightly richer...yeah, but when I did it over a decade and a half ago it was just a perk me and my coworkers enjoyed but never spoke about.

Ok, they don't want teenagers but still allow teenagers?

I noticed that he tried to shop lift a gun (well, a replica or toy gun, let's say).

He may have been intending to come back later.

Fark follow-up tag is in play.

Phase 1: Get a job in a store.
Phase 2: Shop lift.
Phase 3: Hold up store.

It's a plan. More than a lot of poor dumb kids have nowadays.

Is glue sniffing okay for the over 18 set?
 
2011-11-23 03:13:37 PM  
I'm guessing they can't have someone under 18 selling replica guns or other dangerous hobby gear. solvents ? *shrug* They told him no, he was too young to work. He just turned that over in his head pretty quick and made chose crime as the next option.

One of my co-workers would tell a story about the guards on the Iran - Afghanistan border. They would station 2 guys there, each with a rifle, out in basically the middle of absolutely friggin' nowhere. Every now and then, a convoy of 50-60 trucks would come by, obviously running drugs. Each truck had mounted machine guns, armour, etc. If you even tried to stop them, they'd just mow you down without slowing. You wouldn't even wave them through, you'd just take your bathroom break when they came by. (He who turns and runs away, lives to run another day!)

Back when I was working retail, the head office folks said, "look, don't worry about shoplifters. It's not your job to catch them. It's your job to serve the paying customers." So if nobody cared, at all, why would I? It's not my money. It's not their money. The only guy who could possibly care is the shoplifter, and he's just as likely to pull a knife or some crap. I'm not getting into a knife fight with a junkie who's got nothing to lose -- especially when I don't even have a knife!

Really, shoplifting is part of the cost of running a business. I've heard stories of people stealing statues, stock metal, eyeglass frames (

at least he didn't try and stick up the store w/ said airsoft gun.
