Dear Boss

First of all, Asia goes all the way to like Africa so consider all the non ‘ese’ ending cultures and ethnicities that falls into. Heck, the Israelis are considered Asian.

Second: let her have it. And Oil of Olay face and neck creams as well. She desperately needs them!

Shes probably selling it online. Hey, you gotta make a living some how…times are hard.

Who cares? And if they are incompetent enough to let her do it THREE times in a row, then they deserve it.

So what...

Regardless of her race… how did rite aid security not see this on the camera right away, she clearly puts stuff in her bag… it took her third attempt to final get caught….
What were you doing security? Sitting on your ass doing nothing as usual.


Yet EVERY single time I go in there, security follows me like they’re buying things in the exact same aisle as I am, …in every aisle, …the entire time. Literally, EVERY time.

Dear Boss

Well, I see this often, especially with that bait show shoplifters I think it is called. The security office where the CCTV cameras feed into are most likely at the back of the store. Light years away from the point/s of exit.

And the security guards on duty are sometimes just watching instead of keeping their eyes peeled for any suspicious activity.


Smdh does it matter the culture/race of the person! It the fact that this person is committing a crime that’s it!!!!


She looks straight up like a crook!. But come on, she isn’t even trying to hide what she’s doing. My guess it wasn’t her first day “shopping” there. I know that area and no other store would let it get that far. I’ve seen a bodega clerk chase down a white boy for stealing 2 snickers bars. Those workers can spot a crook better then the cops.

Dear Boss

She probably knows she “won’t get caught”. She has done it before and gotten away with it.
