      Hi!

      Yesterday I was at work and this family came in, bought a lot of stuff and kept me busy for a long time. When they left, I realized that they had been busy too. They stole for more than what they bought! They were obviously pros. I really feel bad that people who have the money to go in a ski resort for a week (less than 10% of the French population) can just feel free to rob small shops. My boss actually lost money yesterday by opening his shop because of this robbery.

      The lady had the nerve to prepay for stuff that she will come and get tomorrow evening before leaving. I feel like pulling a prank on her. I want to pretend that I fully trust her and confide in her we got stolen the day she came. Then tell her that what the person doesn’t know is we have a high resolution camera hidden and everything was filmed. This video will be sent to this company who specialises in cumulating robberies in small shops around the country and then bringing these poeple to court for all robberies collected. I think that would make her flip out.  

      Do you think I should do it (if my boss wants to play along)?

        • I wouldn’t! I would file a police report tho if your boss allows that.
          You never know ow they would react and you certainly don’t want to be on the receiving end!!!!!

        • I would leave that up to your boss and how he/she wants to handle it.

        • Yes, report it to the police with your boss’s approval.

          Sorry to hear your place of employment was robbed and a small shop too, shame on those thugs!

        • We cannot file a police report because I have no tangible proof that they did it. It is my word against theirs so police won’t even bother.  

          I’ve decided not to do it. It was probably a silly idea but it felt good thinking about it... happy

        • Well, they came back today... four times! They are definitely guilty and they thought it was funny that we knew. We stayed polite, didn’t make any accusations or even mention robbery, but we were three watching every move they made. They are the ones that made insinuous comments! Can you believe that?

          In the end my boss followed them and took their liscence plate. He will file a warning report to all the other ski stations so everybody will be on alert if they show up. Can you believe that some people make a living out of this??? They go from station to station and just rob all they can then move on... just unbelieveable!

        • It’s so sad that people do this.  

          I used see it all the time at our local gas station/convenience store. I would go out there to grab a bite to eat at noon and almost always ended up being the same time the greyhound bus came in.  People would come off that bus and shop lift everything they could.  It got so bad that the owners had to tell the bus company that passengers could no longer get off the bus there while the bus was fueling.

        • I sure wish there was more recourse for your boss on this. too bad you couldn’t take a photo of them along with the license plate number and send it around.
