Chor Saale!

Guys,

I am feeling so saddened by this episode and thought I will share this with you.. Me and my wife decided to go grocery shopping yesterday and it was kinda of late (after 9.00 PM).. We went to a nearby Asian Market which sells good Sabzi and is open till late at night.. I noticed another desi couple who walked in just at the same time as we did... Both of them were dressed trendy and looked well to do.. I noticed them once or twice again bagging vegetables, near the meat section etc..Now this is a fresh Produce place..You bag your own stuff and you have to go to the checkout and the person there weighs and charges you the amount for the stuff purchased..

This Market has a lot of checkout lanes but understandably, most of the lanes are closed due to low traffic of customers at night.. We were waiting for our turn in an open checkout lane when i saw the desi couple passing through a closed check out lane and casually walking out of the store with a cart full of bags...

Now I did not want to raise an alarm because I wasn't sure but the more I think about that episode, the more I am convinced that they stole..

It saddens me to see people doing such things especially desis..

Re: Chor Saale!

Many desi stores and chinese stores in Bay Area dont necessarily have a person actually monitoring the CCTV in some security back room.

If people have done such an act of stealing then its really sick. If you are sure they did this and you see them next time, you could give a knowing smile or just comment - "Can you help me with my groceries today?".

Well, what can I say? Some people steal and its sad. I have seen such an incident at our local Costco but it ended with cops arresting the man.

It so happened that we were waiting outside the Costco store to grab a bite of pizza. Two cops came and stood there at the entrance. We were wondering whats going on. Soon a man came out with a shopping cart full of stuff. Then another man, dressed in casuals, came behind him and signalled to the cops. The cops stopped the first man and the man how had signalled came and opened one box from the cart. The box was sort of flat like a Fedex box and contained a wall clock. Out came a small packet of CDs from this box. Apparently the shop lifter had put a small box of CDs inside the bigger box and sneaked it out.

Costco has several cameras and someone does monitor you all the time you are inside the store. The shoplifter was arrested and the cops took him towards their car. His car was parked near it. I was surprised to note that this man's car was an old model Porsche Targa!! He wanted to pick up something from his car and the cops allowed him to. Decent looking man, driving a old Porsche, shoplifting CDs!!!

Well it takes all kinds...

Re: Chor Saale!

I think unfair ... why single out your fellow countryman and his woman? They all do it ... I mean people of middle east background are the worst offenders. Color and creed got nothing to do with that. Besides ... this couple could be the owner of the shop or owns a Daba and have an account ...

Sensing somerthing wrong and as a law abiding citizen ... it was your civil duty to apprehend them ... noh? So ... in a nutshell ... we dont know who they were but you failed in your duty.

Shem on you.
