People who like to talk about being LP tend to be narcissistic shitbags. I remember one guy in the subreddit insisting that LP has the last word on how items are arranged and that the OP should complain if his work doesn't let him rearrange the displays to make his job easier. It's like they forget they're there for the merchandise, not the other way around.

Also, anyone who talks about how they "get a hunch" or "develop instincts" on finding thieves just comes across as racist and classist. I bet at least one out of ten "they were stealing but accused me of being racist!!1!" stories are made up to make the storyteller feel less racist about hounding an innocent person.

Half of your "response" either has nothing to do with what I said or is a gross misunderstanding of what I said, and the rest is just throwing a hissy fit because I called you mean names.

Which is proof that you don't deserve a response more dignified than calling you mean names.

Are... are you under the impression that door greeters invented their own position and are the only ones who create the rules governing it? Because that's how you're wording it, and to put it nicely, you sound completely braindead.

It's corporate's fault that the door greeter position exists. There's nothing wrong with walking on by and not showing a receipt, but don't go out of your way to be a piece of shit to them, you brainless fucking prick.

For anyone interested: I didn't go through with it because they didn't carry my size. >:( Mine seems laughably easy, though, with no fitting room attendant and very few cameras in general.

Do you do this with everyone who leaves a fitting room with less clothing than they came in with(including 0), as soon as they leave? If it's 0 and they've acted normal thus far, is it assumed that they just left them all in the fitting room? If a section of the store containing clothes is a blindspot and they leave that area with more clothes than before, do you have tricks for being able to figure out exactly how many clothes they had even if the pile is obscured by a large article of clothing? Thanks in advance, I know I'm being a little demanding 🤣

If you don't mind my double dipping, now that I think about it: how do you go about stops where all concealment took place in a fitting room? How do you even begin to determine that any concealment took place, assuming that the only thing going into the fitting room is clothing?

  1. What's the worst place to hide defeated tags?
  2. What's a place you never thought to look for defeated tags?
  3. If a person appeared and behaved normally, how long would you monitor them prior to losing interest? Is it dependent on who else is in the store?
  4. Under what circumstances would you not keep an eye on someone who wore a backpack into the store, if any?
  5. Did you keep a special eye on ex-employees?
  6. How often did towers go off wrongly, so far as you knew?
  7. What behavior from a customer going through a beeping tower tended to make you think that it was a false positive?
  8. What were the most watched items at Homegoods?
  9. Approximately how often did you let a thief go and remember their face for next time in order to catch them doing something more severe?
  10. How frequently can a person visit before you become suspicious based on that factor alone?

Thanks in advance.
