I do most of the grocery shopping for my household. I know where stuff is in Costco, Walmart, K Soopers, and Target and can get in and out quickly.
Sometimes when I’m shopping I notice people doing things… things I could never get away with. I know this because my wife has had her purse checked and I’ve been stopped as well myself by store security for no reason.
All random checks of course.
I notice occasionally people eating food they are “going to buy,” but haven’t bought yet. You know, like the clear plastic thing of cookies some worker at the store made. I watched as this one individually ate cookie after cookie until they were almost gone, I wasn’t following them I needed prunes. Other times it’s the pound cake and someone’s eating gobbling it down and giving it to their kid too.
I get it. They were probably hungry. But, it must be a privilege because if I tried that I’d be arrested for theft. I have no doubt of that.
I think there are people, there was a movie once about it, that calculate the danger level of a situation so no one does it. I’d give “minority eating food before purchasing said food” a danger level of – don’t be an idiot. I wouldn’t try that at home.
Must be a privilege…
