I'm Not As Young As I Used To Be

Tonight I learned I can't outrun a twenty five year old woman.

It started when an associate called me to tell me that a woman had just entered the women's restroom with a pair of jeans and a big tote bag that was stuffed. So I waited for her and than followed her as she came out. She walked around the store and dumbed the jeans. As she started to leave the store the alarm went off and she turned to go back into the store. I was still behind her.

It was than I noticed the tag hanging down from the tote. It was our price tag. I went up to her and asked her what she had that was mine. She said the tote. I told her she needed to accompany me to the back and she refused. We played a brief game of her stepping to one side, me stepping in front, until she broke around me and took off running. I followed but she was faster than me.

I followed her out the store and ran next door to the store there. There was a Jeep parked in front of the store and it's passenger window was down. She dived head first through the window, where her boyfriend or husband was in the drivers' seat and they took off.

I was able to get the license number of their vehicle. And what was even better was that she dropped her purse when she jumped through the car window. I called the police and after they came we discovered her address and other information in her purse.

I really don't like thieves.

You can guarantee in our economic mudslide...that thievery will increase significantly...Maybe an investment in a taser instead of running shoes...;-)
