Is the alcohol section the worst section to conceal in? I did and got caught almost immediately. (Kinda my fault be I didn’t leave the store right away.)

I’m trying to do the same thing. I don’t have a buddy, but if I did I would use them as distraction, and lift and run. Most gas stations don’t have vodka where I live, but make sure that the convenience store isn’t a ma and pa. Not ethical to lift from them.

Maybe some sunglasses? You may be able to resell for 60-80% of cost and a $30+ Pair can be worth it for how easy it is to lift. I just took two pair from the mall today, super easy. There were $130+ pairs in macys (literally out in the open without tags), but there was an employee there and I didn’t want to risk it.

What I just did was click the 0 comments from the main forum, and then checked the url and took the numbers in it “69206”, and edited them into my main submission. But do I have to do this very time? How do I create an url for a post?

Well, I don’t know a lot about how LP works, but I would assume by your testimony that the dude in question is bluffing his ass off. If he only yelled “we have photos, and you are banned from all stores!”, then I would assume that it isn’t a big deal. The best you could do is simply shop at a different branded store, wait a few months (so different pics can enter/saturate the system, if he does actualy have pics, or even a system), and then go back to either your normal store, an old one, or the new one and see if they yell at you.

Ohhh, shit. I lifted a small, 4 oz bottle of “aromatic spirits” from my local Safeway (was disgusting, but the bottle was tiny. Vodka next time.) No one saw me, and I don’t think I saw a camera around that area, but now I think that I may be screwed if I ever go back in.

You say that you work in a general store; here’s a question. If I quickly checked for people, slipped a bottle of alcohol into my bag, and then slipped the bag back on (all while in the alcohol aisle), what would my probability of being caught be like? And what could I do to minimize it?

Well if you, for some reason or another, aren’t bothered by the morality (or lack therof) of lifting, the I say that it is as ethical as you are going to get. If you think about it, your parents give you cash and tell you to get groceries. You are doing what they tell you to do. I mean, you are doing the work of lifting, right?
