Maybe if Dollar General put more than two employees in a store for a shift, they would have less shoplifting. But keeping employees overwhelmed and underpaid is DG's bread and butter.

groppet: So stealing laundry detergent is a thing again? Years ago they busted a guy here with his garage full of what he stole from stores and a wad of cash. He was selling it at swap meets and doing pretty well for himself.


It's a perfect fungible good. You can tell if it's been diluted, it doesn't spoil, and has no serial numbers. Plus, it gets used up.

Actually, well known brands, and in particular, Tide, are very marketable commodities. Tide is a well known target for professional shoplifters, because it's very easy to sell.

Put on my running shoes
And I filled up a cart
In a store in the land of the delta blues
Because shoplifting is my art

Dollar Gen'ral
Won't you just let me thieve
Yeah I've grabbed up some detergent
But I'm dirty as a boy can be

Now I'm running in Memphis
I'm running with all these police on my heels
Running in Memphis
But do I really steal the way I steal

Lots of BBQ sauce to get out of clothes after Memphis in May.

In the time it took that "crime" to transpire, American bosses stole an incalculable number of dollars in wages from their employees.
Millions are stolen every day, while the 1% owned media wanks and blares about shoplifting.
Steal more.
