Welcome to my new followers via Bloglovin - Claire Gatton, Natalie Lashbrook and Jane Tunley. You are all most welcome.
The boldness of shoplifters never ceases to amaze me. The last time I saw someone being chased by security guards was at Matalan, 20 or so years ago. We had just pulled up into the car park, out shot a youth, with an armful of stuff, closely followed by two chaps. They pursued him out of the car park, across a main road and caught him half way up the next street. He was duly frog-marched back to the store!
This week, we had been to Emneth for chiropractic treatment and thought we would pop along to Dunelm for a light lunch. We bought some new tea towels and was paying at the till. Two women pushing trollies joined at the next till, except the second of the two, carried on walking. Past the tills, out the shops (security alarms never went off). The two checkout 'girls' asked each other if she had paid, before sounded the alarm.
The woman by then was stacking said goods into her 2013 registered car boot, (could have been stolen who knows), when the chaps caught her. Made her get everything back out and into the trolley. We heard the words 'you will be interviewed..., the police have been called'. She just stood there smiling the whole time!!
She was still smiling whilst being escorted back to the store.
On the way home, we saw an ambulance whizzing towards us, got to a big roundabout where 30 or so metres down the road was another ambulance and a lot of traffic. I think it involved one or more motorcycles as several of the bikes were laying on their sides.
All in all, an interesting day!
