Would you have pressed charges?

A guy comes in the deli I work at...it's a sit-down kind of pace. ...and immediately I get suspicious. 

He's way overdressed...and just has this crazed look on his face. 

First thought...crackhead. 

Then I watch him walk over to one of my empty tables, steal my tip, and try to run out the door. 

I was honestly not going to make a big deal out of it. If you are that desperate for 5 bucks...then damn buddy, go ahead. Just don't make it a habit. 

Too bad for him...the owner saw him do it...called the cops and had him arrested. We had it on tape...the end. 

I wish he hadn't done that. What about you?

Stealing is stealing. Though, had I seen it I likely wouldn't have said anything $5 is not worth my life.

yeah...but at the same time...I can't help but feel sorry for folks like that. I'm sure he will steal again...and probably go right back to jail...but not at my hands

I would have told my boss, but I don't think I would have called the cops.

1 mom liked this

So maybe him getting arrested will be a wake up call to get his act together.  People gotta live with their consequences.

I would. It is stealing.

you're right. Stealing is stealing. But it was my money...and if I don't have a probem with it...I wish my manager would have just banned him from the place or something.

Some people do this hoping to get caught and sent to jail

 I would have. If he is doing it in your place of work, he is probably doing it in other places. He needs to be stopped.
