Shoplifting?

Hmmm... I can't be very sure about this one but I was just in Phoon Huat this morning and there was only one customer besides myself. While I was making my way to the shelf holding jelly moulds, I thought I saw the other lady slip something into her PH plastic bag. Well, I can't be sure that it really happened, maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me or maybe she was too quick. But it troubled me a little. It's not the first time I have witnessed such an incident but then again most of these people are really fast with their hands. I once spied a Jap lady do it, and even that time I couldn't be too sure.

What would you do if you were caught in such a situation?

OOOOOOOOOOh..... When I was in Japan, we went to a bookstore and I spied a young fellow taking a porn magazine from the top of the rack and slipping it into the bag!! I was so stunned that I just stood there, rooted to the floor! When TF asked me what was wrong, I told him and guess what? He scolded me!! He said I should have raised the alarm or told him about it! He must have thought that I purposely let the fellow get away with it! LOL

But yeah, being in a foreign country, I just felt I was watching a movie or something LOL

karen - Ya, the first time I suspected that Jap lady, I told myself it couldn't be true. I mean Japs. Who would think? Lol, but you are very sure he took it, right?

I guess I would have told my husband and my husband would probably tell the guard. If I am alone with the kids, I'm not sure what I would do though.

Yup, I was absolutely sure! Like I said, I felt like I was watching a movie!! He reached out to the top shelf where the tits magazines were (so graphic some more!) and he lifted up the flap of his bag and put it in....

i'd be too shocked to do anything...goshhhh, but telling the guard sounds like a good idea
