Tuesday, I watched a messican tag team work, but they got caught. (male & female)

they bought one mobile dvd player, and walked out seperately carrying two of them.

He bought and paid for one player, then walked out ahead of her without the receipt....
she walked out with the hot DVD player and the receipt. got stopped when the door buzzer went off, produced the receipt.....looked good
She was allowed to pass when two wal-mart employees met her in the parking lot and they couldn't produce receipts for both DVD players.

what pisses me off, is the fact that the store employee simply took the hot DVD player and went back in the store.

$188.88 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4100513

Walmart/target is a hot topic around here lately (in the news).
Seems the mulit-millionaires at the corp office are going to pull the plug on building some in the city because of the "bigbox" ordinance they are working on in the city. Partly because they don't want to pay someone an hourly wage equalling $400.00 a week to work there, rather about $280.00 a week.

Our town just turned Wal-Mart down for 2 new store locations, because of the Big Box theory and Wal-mart tried everything to satisfy them and finally W/M just pulled the plug on the stores and went out in the county and built one. Now, the city has found out most of the employees are rural people working there as second jobs. The city is now upset, because they say they want Wal-mart back in town to employ people who need a primary job, Wal-Mart told them T-S!
