I've actually seen three guys at a time on duty at my Walmart. The reason I know they're LP is that I know one of the guys - he went to our high school but he's younger than me. And the two guys talking to him weren't in Walmart uniforms, but followed this guy back into the employees area. LP guys are so easy to spot. But I'm not going to post what makes them easy to spot, in case any LP are reading this. Why correct the enemy when he's making mistakes?

She thinks people don't text in fitting rooms? Hell, I've heard people talking or texting while taking a shit in the bathroom stall next to me. I would've raised hell with management over that one.

That doesn't matter. I genuinely did forget to pay for something once, and LP hauled me into their office. As if somebody would pay for the expensive items, but lift an item worth 50 cents. That's one of the reasons I started lifting. Treat me like a criminal, I'll act like one. Fuckers.

Dollar store shit is flippable. There are people who buy all sorts of shit at Dollar Tree, then flip it on Amazon. They use an Amazon app on their phones to see if the crap is selling well, then buy it if it is. I couldn't believe it until I saw it in action on YouTube.

For smaller or flatter items, grab two of the same item. Go to your blind spot and conceal. Leave the blind spot with that item visible in your cart. Right before you leave, hand it to an employee and ask them to put it back, because you're in a hurry. Be sure to remember the employee's name on their name tag. In the unlikely event someone tries to stop you, tell them who you gave the item to. They'll have to believe a fellow employee, and you're in the clear.

#1 is why it's important to pick a shopping cart that doesn't limp, squeak, or rattle. People are so used to those noises, that it's easy to grab a noisy cart without thinking about it, and that will attract unwanted attention.

I once did a walkout totally by accident. One of the employees started chatting with me while I was at the self-checkout, and I forgot to pay for my stuff. I nearly shit myself when I got home and realized I'd just stolen over $100 worth of merchandise. I didn't dare go back.

If ever you want to scope a place out for cameras, here's an easy way to look upward without looking suspicious. Wrap an elastic bandage around a knee or ankle and limp a bit, then use one of the electric shopping carts. Since you're sitting down, you have to look upward to see merchandise, the signs above the aisles...which makes it very easy to find the cameras without looking sneaky.
