    As long as she was committing a robbery, she might as well have demanded a carton of cigarettes rather than a pack.  Now, she’ll just have to go back and rob them again when she wants a smoke. Hopefully, there’ll be a cop nearby to nab her. I wonder if she’d rob a pharmacy for one oxy, too.

      Good questions. One pack? Not the brightest bulb in the circuit….

         Not at all.  It’s a sound strategy – only steal what you actually want.  All the money… and what the hell, a pack of smokes.  No point in being greedy.  Cartons are unwieldy anyway. :)

          That’s witty!
          And to think I traveled all the way to St.Louis and back Saturday for a carton costing $33.80 when all I have to do is “indicate” I have a weapon ten times to get the same for free?
          Silly me…. :)

    “robs in”? Really?

    How does one “rob in” exactly?

      Twenty or thirty years ago when people actually read what they wrote I’d agree with you.  Today, they’d accuse you of being too picky. But even today the spell and syntax checkers aren’t smart enough to replace a sharp-eyed human editor.

    Why not rob a store these days?  What’s a judge going to do about it – sentence someone to a day of community service?  Things will only start to change when a store clerk shoots one of these drugged-up thugs.  Of course, the judge would sentence the store clerk to life.

      And when the thief finished doing time, he/she would start a civil lawsuit naming the store clerk and store as defendant…hello…Joe Bornstein?

  • Hmmm do i know her ??? Maybe

  • Oh boy… she looks REAL threatening.  I would have taken her note and told her to get lost.

      Appearances don’t count for as much these days as they used to.  Like the slogan used to say, President Lincoln made all Americans free, but Colonel Colt made them equal.

    Retailers should have their employees drop anything over a $20.00 in the safe and just keep a couple hundred to make change in the drawer at all times.  I’m sure Orono will get her because people in the community probably know who she is.

    Great Camera. 5’4″ 115 – 130 lbs? Just take her down! They probably don’t get paid enough to care though. Can’t say I blame the Cashier.
