    I worked at an unnamed store before on young st....and all I'm going to say is there were always a lot of empty/missing packages of certain products.
    We actually had so much theft on it that we stopped selling it.

    Change is needed. The black population of Dartmouth should be allowed to steal whatever they want to steal. :ontome:

    And don't forget KFC keeps the fried chicken behind the counter until the money has changed hands. However, Pete's allows public access to the watermelon section.

    Wal-Mart locks up electric razors for men. I find this extremely sexist and i wish to protest!!!

    As for shoppers drug mart, I can't believe they would ever lock up products that tend to get stolen! Thats discriminating to criminals! shouldn't everyone have the same right to steal what they want to?

    Would they really be fucking locked up if they wern't being taken, fuck these people are morons.

    I had to ask the Guy at Canadian Tire to open the case so i could get some Dremel accessories, 97.78% of woodworkers are white, i think this practice is racist...As barack said, it's time for a change.

    Agreed that's a bunch of BS. They wouldn't be locked up if they weren't being stolen. It has nothing to do with who uses the product.

    Just wish people like him wouldn't call racism each and everytime someone doesn't get their way. Kinda gives real incidents of racism a "boy crying wolf" response after a while.

    And those silly tree huggers, got one at camp who is a coworker and he'll walk out of his way to pick up a discarded piece of paper towel in the yard. Lets just say its turned into a game for me, a bit of entertainment in boring ol' camp.
