pull up, jump out with your drill.... zip zip... take plate and go. Then you superglue stolen plate to back of yours. Use clamps so the seal is tight. When u are in need of this 2nd plate, pull in to a parking lot just before needing it, pop trunk, reach up and twist screws out, flip plate, reinsert screws. you now have 2 plates and wont have one laying out if u get stopped by police

He applied for that specific job because he was desperate. Obviously I don't know his specific situation, but I'd make a strong bet for it having something to do with our society failing to care for the sick, elderly, and otherwise disadvantaged among us. Think about it this way - what are the odds an 80 year old would apply for a bottom-tier job at Walmart just out of boredom? There are a lot of people in this world, so it's probably happened at least once, but the vast majority are desperate.

A very annoying woman on a scooter who’s a greeter, stopped my friend and I to ask if we bought anything. We stood in front of her so she could see we weren’t caring any bags. She then asks again to see our receipt, I tell her we didn’t buy anything and she asks again. We say the same thing and then she’s like “OOOHH okay bye.” Like girl we weren’t caring any bags and I know for a fact I didn’t take anything this time. I was very annoyed with her, 😤

  • What do you do when they ask to count the clothing?

If you are quick enough you can hide your merch inside of other clothing, preferably something bulkier: like a t-shirt inside of a big pair of pants.

  • When you're coming out is it okay to tell them you just left some merch in there?

I'm not really sure how things work at Walmart since I don't live in US but this is what I do: There's most likely a rack for the clothes you aren't buying. If no rack, I normally give a few items to an employee. I spend a little bit time in the store, place other items (which I double-tagged in the dressing room) on their designated racks and get out.
