Ok, I normally think that pranks involving someone's place of business are pretty crass and stupid, but this prank here, where a whole group of people dressed up like Best Buy employees and invaded a store, and documented it, is pretty farkin hilarious. Check it out. Maybe it's because I hate the way they shout out "HELLO SIR HOW ARE YOU TODAY?" when I step into that place. The theory is that if a customer is acknowledged, that they're much less likely to shoplift. I think that if you automagically assume all your customers are thieves, then you've already made them into thieves, haven't you?

Cheese confession. Last night I was driving home from work, and some Def Leppard was on the radio. I have a weakness for Def Leppard. Then, to top it all off, the made for TV movie of the story of Def Leppard was on VH1. Wierd synchronicity, eh?

So, I'm reading 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck. Very very interesting. More about that at a later date.

Heh heh. That was pretty good. (Of course, hard to top that whole incredibly witty "rearrange the books..ar ar" thing.) Seriously, though, inquiring minds want to know how you would have handled it at your store...

Well, we don't wear uniforms. Wearing uniforms just opens yourself up to that sort of thing.

Heh I bet it was freaking hilarious. As far as I know, the Best Buy "employees" didn't move anything, they just amused themselves at the expense of customers.
