I really don't know what I would do. I guess I would have to be there then I could decide better. I would probably find someone who works there and let them know.

I would do something about it thats for sure, I think it is so wrong to steal. I would ask for the manager and tell him andshow him the person that I saw stealing.

I would definately get a manager or someone. It only raises our prices.

I would have to report that person to management. If we let the thieves get away with it, eventually it would lead to higher prices for us to pay. Why should we have to pay the price for them doing the stealing and getting away with it?

I think I probably wouldn't do anything, but it might depend on the exact situation. I mean, if it was someone I knew then I might go up to them. It might also depend on what they were stealing and which shop it was.
