DUmmies explain the finer points of theft. I can’t bring it over right now but invite you to peruse their reasons for stealing.

Walmart is tempting me to steal from them


I haven't done it yet. But the temptation is getting stronger. Since our Walmart removed most of the checkout stations and replaced them with self-checkout, I feel like Walmart is forcing me to work for them. Because I'm forced to scan my own items, they're not paying wages to a checkout clerk. Even though I often used self checkout before, it pisses me off that now they're forcing me to.

If they're cutting their expenses by forcing me to scan my own groceries, why shouldn't I get some sort of compensation?

I mean, why can't I put a few smaller items in my bag without scanning them? Why shouldn't I be able to scan only three cans of tuna, when I'm buying four? What's wrong with touching the picture of cheaper apples, when the more expensive variety is on the scale.

If Walmart forces me to do their employees' work, isn't it only fair to force Walmart to give me compensation?

I've always considered myself an honest guy, but when Walmart steals my labor, I'm tempted to retaliate.

They always consider themselves to be virtuous, when in reality they are a bunch of low life dirtbags.

Walmarts have lots of cameras.  Those workers checking receipts when you leave are glancing at receipts to see if self checkout was used.

I have noticed that if you use a regular checkout, they don't look in any bags. If you used the self checkout, they may glance in the bags if there are big ticket items.  They also watch the person to see if they act nervous.

Um, this DUchebag doesn't realize that he absolutely IS getting compensation: He isn't paying what his groceries would cost if Wal-Mart had to pay cashiers what the DUpipo think they should.

92. A self-checkout machine has never judged me for being trans

I don’t think they pass judgment on people who have to use EBT cards either.

Don’t be so sure. As smart as these machines have become, no doubt they’ve taken your pic and passed it around for a good laugh. And can you blame them?

Bet this DUmbass is for a $15 or more minimum wage which is causing these stores to install self checkout machines.

The primitives always forget that part.

Labor is an expense that is passed onto the ultimate consumer, and that's a hard-and-fast rule that can't be changed or ignored.

My proggie FB friends who want higher taxes on corporations (their "fair share") are always surprised when I tell them that corporations don't pay taxes, and never will. They will simply pass that expense onto their customers via higher prices for their products. They have literally lol'd at me for saying that. Because everyone knows, if they have to pay their "fair share," it will come out of the big pot of $$$ that's kept in the CEO's offices.  ::)

Not just that, but my Walmart actually has a camera trained on the bagging area as I found out last week. The bags were on my right and I had a bunch of things in my right hand and realized that I needed to get the bag open and did so after I scanned and dropped one in the bag with my right hand, it immediately flagged and showed a still capture of everything in my hand to the clerk. She laughed and said you’d have been surprised how many were doing that and it’s what prompted the camera.

More "nothing is my fault" justification from those who don't have a moral base.  Making no claims to be perfect, but I know who to blame for the thoughts in my head, and it ain't Walmart.

My Walmart is a MESS to shop at, so I order delivery.

Last week after I ordered, I did NOT get a delivery.

Received an email that said the "DRIVER" did NOT show up and a replacement could NOT be found.

EXCLUSIVE U.S. Labor Secretary supports classifying gig workers as employees

A lot of gig workers in the United States should be classified as “employees” who deserve work benefits, President Biden’s labor secretary said on Thursday, suggesting a shift in policy that is likely to raise costs for companies that depend on contractors such as Uber (UBER.N) and Lyft (LYFT.O).

Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, a son of Irish immigrants and a former union member, has been expected to boost the Biden Administration's efforts to expand workers' protections and deliver a win for the country's organized labor movement.

"We are looking at it but in a lot of cases gig workers should be classified as employees... in some cases they are treated respectfully and in some cases they are not and I think it has to be consistent across the board," Walsh told Reuters in an interview, expressing his view on the topic for the first time.
