Hey folks, hope you are well, today’s rant is a thing that affects everyone Worldwide and it hits us in our pockets every minute of every day. As you know I work in retail, Supermarket Retail, I am the person who serves you your Pizza and ice cream lol, always with a smile.I would like to talk about people who feel it’s their right to come into a shop and steal whatever they can get their hands on and walk out of the shop without paying. Every shop nowadays has CCTV, and it amazes me that people never think about that when they decide to shoplift. The recordings are crystal clear and the Police can recognize their own Mother that’s how clear the footage is, however it does not stop people from stealing hundreds of pounds worth of goods a day.
We are trained not to respond physically should we suspect a shoplifter in the store but I do not agree with that, I feel it’s my duty to stamp out this dishonesty if I see it, yes I know not to chase someone along the street with their ill-gotten gains, but I will bring it to the attention of the Manager if I suspect a shoplifter has taken something and not paid.

Why should we have to carry the can with higher grocery charges to make up for the companies losses, its not fair and I will try my very best to stop it, but as everyone who works in retail will verify you are often understaffed and rushed off your feet all shift and that’s when these people know when to come into the store.I also respect other shoppers who see with their own eyes people stealing items, good on the people who are not scared to inform us. We all have to pay our way, we all struggle, we all have to rely on credit, but hey, we still pay our way in Society.
