  • Report it, as long as I was certain that is in fact what was going on. I would hate to assume and embarrass anyone.

  • I had this happen and didn't realize what was going on until several days later when I thought Hey!. It was a guy changing in the aisle out of his dirty t-shirt into a clean one from the shelf. I thought it was odd at the time, but later on I realized he was stealing the shirt.

  • Mind my own business..... if their dumb enough to be stealing who knows how crazy they are. If its that oblivious someone else would see.

  • I'd mind my own business. Usually people who shoplift do it more than once and they'll eventually get caught.
