HIGH ROLLERS: We all see the receipt-checker at the exit doors of super marts, wearing a vest and striking a highlighter marker through your recently purchased receipt. Some of us may think they’re hardly giving our receipts the look-over as we impatiently try to push pass the exit door, but, the truth is, they’re checking that list twice. Last Sunday a male tried to push a shopping cart full of Walmart items valued at $1,300 past the receipt-checker. One of his accomplices tried to distract the Walmart employee with her female cunningness — yea, that didn’t work. When the employee insisted on checking his receipt, the male pushed her down. The suspects abandoned their metal Walmart sleigh and fled the scene of the crime.
CHA-CHING: Last Saturday, $445 was stolen from a wallet in an unlocked vehicle. Merry Christmas.
TRASHY ART: Ladies, doesn’t this story sound familiar: an ex-friend dating your ex-boyfriend. It’s undoubtedly some sort of female code that you don’t hook up with your girl’s ex-man (out of principle). However, even when it does happen we shouldn’t let such situations get the best of us, like the girl who kept harassing her “friend” at the Hampton Inn last Friday and painted “F**k You” on her car windshield. Honey, he probably wasn’t worth it in the first place.
