Since we started this thread I decided that I would tell you about an experience I had yesterday. I went to a certain home Improvement Box Store to pick up a few items for the company that I'm working for. While I was there I decided to get a couple of gallons of paint so I could make sure that I had plenty of things to do if we were under lockdown. I went and paid at the self-pay counter for my company's items first. While this was going on, the attendant that was there was relieved by another attendant. The second attendant was some ditzy early 20-something that spent more time playing on her phone so I decided to see what would happen if I just walked out. Suffice it to say that I have two gallons of paint that were incredibly cheap.

There is such a Feeding Frenzy when it comes to some of the items that people are buying, and the retailers are doing the best they can to keep up with stocking and checking that essentially LP in a lot of stores is either lax or nonexistent. We should all exercise caution and be aware of our surroundings while also maintaining responsible social distancing.

Mrs. Ganktastic and I work as a team. She figured out that if we work together that we can save about a hundred a week in groceries at least. It also has tripled our wardrobes each, not to mention increased our home decor from like everybody else to "Wow! Your house is amazing!"

We have a system where we hit a metro area every other weekend and rotate four to five metro areas within a 250-mile radius. That puts us at visiting every two months. The weekend take is well, sometimes insane like 3K a weekend insane. This system frees up funds for other items/goodies like trips, etc.

I would be a bit cautious there. The Mrs. and I were at this particular store last Saturday and holy cow! An LP guy was standing there. This cat made no bones what he was there for. Eye contact, zero talking or greeting. Stared everyone down. Was ON TOP of his game. Just be VERY careful. Obvious some folks ganked too many R2D2 Instantpots and caused enough shrinkage it got W's attention.

Keep up the white collar thing. The idiot LP brigade is barely a step above shiplofter themselves. The snobbier you act...sometimes can be better.

I suggested teams because my wife discovered my "hobby" a couple of years ago and figured out that is why we are saving for a second house instead of buying 150.00 worth of groceries and shampoo/soap/makeup every week. Working in teams net our take north of $3000 per month.
BEST of LUCk. Be careful out there.

My wife and I were in a certain high-end department store last Saturday. She decided she needed a couple more pairs of faux leather Spanx leggings. She picked up two off of the rack and draped another pair of pants over the two and we proceeded to find a dressing room. When we went up the escalator, there was an off-duty police officer/LP standing there as we went upstairs. The Mrs. went straight to the dressing room and concealed both pair of Spanx and her Coach purse well I was standing outside the dressing room making a "phone call". Mr. LP paid zero attention to us because he was too busy paying attention to four black kids, and yes they were planning on shiplofting. We walked out of the store and moved on to the next mark on our list. The reason no one paid attention to us? We are white and we are white collar.

I hate to say it but yes you were certainly suspected and they are going to keep an eye on you. It's wrong, it is racism, but if you had a fairly well dressed white female to work with you, you could probably do well. You can be the decoy and throw the block while she packmules the store. Just a thought.
