take another approach on the problem. It is Wal-Mart's problem. I
intentionally go to Wal-Mart with the RF thingy in my pocket. When I
into the store it triggers the alarm. Then I demand to see the store
manager, his name is Sidney we are on first name basis, then tell him
his equipment. We discus this for a few minutes and I go shopping. By
way I do have a loud mouth and customers within 200 feet must hear me.
when I leave the store the same thing happens. Again ask for the Sidney
go through the same thing again. After 20 or more times doing this, I
him a letter stating that it is my intension to sue Wal-Mart for
detaining me. The next time I went into the store I did not trigger the
alarm. I don't know what they did but I don't triggger the alarm
Good for you. I totally agree with you. I would have loved to do what
did but my husband who is usually with me would never had gone along
It's not good to me however I don't understand how intentionally
causing a scene about something of one's own making is a good thing.
In case I missed the point, intentionally planting RF strips on
yourself does what? Our society steals from retailers - big and small
- at an alarming rate. It happens not just at Wal-Mart and Penney's,
but also "Joe's Pharmacy" and the True Value down the street. If they
can not install monitoring equipment to decrease theft, the cost of
that theft comes out of our pockets by cutting employee hours/income
and raising merchandise prices. I would rather take my test strip
vial/drum/disk out of the box to transport it and walk into any store
without disrupting everyone around me. The money I save by paying
lower prices can be donated to IP. Now to me, that is a good thing.
