Default Re: is it me or WalMart?

I used to be an asst. manager at a K-Mart many years ago. No doubt employee theft was a big issue, but I can't tell you how many times I watched people who would take large boxed items and stuff them full of little items before going through a checkout line to pay for the big item.

Either that or they would switch box contents and get something higher priced than what was supposed to be in the box. At least scanners have helped with price tag changes which were always popular.

I say you should be thankful that large retailers like Wal-Mart don't check your items more thoroughly than they do now. Many items will set off an alarm if they are not scanned at the check-out, but it looks like all items could be security coded to save the merchant and the customer a lot of grief. Seems that would save them money in the long run.
