    This is all hypothetical.

    What would you do if, in real life, you:

    Ding another car with the grocery cart??

    Find out that your best friend's husband/wife is cheating on her/him??

    Learn that your boss gave the promotion to another, and not you, due to the fact that there is certain data he/she has which might be incriminating??

    Actually see someone shoplifting??

    Jeanie still nobody's bitch V.I.P. Lifetime

    As I'm only responsible for my own karma and/or actions, I would take no action in any of the above situations. As far as the grocery cart ding, Michigan is a no-fault insurance state so it's irrelevant who caused the damage.

    --I would:
    Leave a note (and actually have so I know I would do that) leaving my name and number.

    Go the the husband/wife and give them a time limit to tell the spouse, or I would (don't mess with my best friend).

    Shake my head and mutter, "It figures."

    Go up behind them (this is another thing I have actually done) and say, in a loud friendly voice, "Watcha doin'?"

    Leave contact info and hope it isn't followed up on.

    I already know this. He's also been cheating on her. I'll leave them to it.

    If I understand the question right, I'd be grateful.

    That would depend on the value of the items in question. If someone's walking out of a store with $100 in stolen swag, you'd better believe I'm getting involved. Pilferage of that magnitude affects my product cost! If it's a banana or an apple, on the other hand, do your thing. I've got bigger fish to fry.

    #1. Makes sure nobody saw me and if they didn't, walk away.

    #2. Tell them, I have a serious problem with that kinda shit.

    #3. Act cool about it, attempt to manipulate the person into thinking I'm their friend so I can get the information and then bring my boss down.

    #4. Nothing.

    I'd have to say I wouldn't do anything either if I saw somebody shoplifting~
    It's none of my business and who knows, the shoplifter that wants something that bad, might have a knife or a gun, and I don't want to be on the receiving end of that~
