criminals are stupid
A store detective spotted a customer taking a pair of shoes without paying for them. He was confronted in the mall, putting them on, and said he was in a hurry for a job interview at another shoe store, and would not cooperate. He took off and went into the other store for his interview, and while he was waiting the police were called and then led him out in cuffs. Needless to say, he didn’t get hired.
