The nerve of some people! How does a person get out of a store with something like that SEVERAL TIMES without someone noticing?

  • At least she was finally caught! She may have had help from some of the employees who were her friends or partners, or the store didn't have enough security.

  • There was a video news story from your link - she took her daycare kids with her to use as shields! Now that makes me furious.

  • Wow, that's really crappy. On the other hand, at least she has good taste in vacuums--I have a Dyson and love it! Glad she got busted though; too bad she had a chance to set a poor example for some kids first.

  • um, thanks a lot guys. that's my cousin and i'm being completely serious. she's my uncles daughter.
    she was smart, until she got caught.

    don't call her stupid, because clearly the store people were stupid for not noticing in the first place.
    sure what she did was wrong, but that doesn't make her stupid.

  • PP,
    Why would you advertise that.
    I'd hope you have more taste than that,
    and since thats your screen name, I think you're full of poop!
