I Didn't Steal It--Really!

When Gerard opened his jogging suit and tried on the jacket, he noticed that clip thing was still on that the stores put on clothes to help prevent shoplifting (stealing). I got this on Black Friday at Sears an the line was long, the place was crazy busy, and obviously, my cashier was somewhat frazzled. He missed taking off the clip thing from the cuff. I missed seeing it too when I went to wrap the gift. Gerard was all ready to just pull the thing off but then I read the warning tag which was on it about not removing it or ink will squirt out all over the clothes and to take it to a cashier for removal.

I dug up the receipt and went back to Sears today do get that thing off. They have to believe I didn't take it since I have not only a gift receipt but also the one that lists the bar code, right?

Always, always always save ALL your Christmas receipts in one special place (an envelope works well). I'm so glad I was able to find that receipt!

I always save the receipts until long after the holidays and this is exactly why. This has happened to me too. Pain in rear. You are right about putting them all in an envelope. That's what I do. I put them in my bill basket and somewhere around June I toss them.

Have at terrific day. :)

I hate it when that happens. You would think that when you left the store that their excellent security system would have detected you.

I hate when they do this. Not only is it annoying that you can't wear it, but you have to drag yourself all the way back to the store. Such a waste of time.

Sandee: I don't save the receipts that long, but do save them about a month or two.

Mrs. G: Good point! I wonder why it didn't.

Eclipsed: It was an inconvenience, but at least they took it off with no problem, once the cashier called the other cashier over to show her how to do it! I had to wait in line though about 15 minutes.

I am surprised their alarm didn't go off when you left the store. Glad you noticed it and was able to get it fixed with not too much hassle.
