Today was a little quiet in the evening. It was about 4pm when it happened. I was near the counter calculating my staff's salary while two of my cashiers were serving the customers.
One of my cashiers called me to check the cctv just a few minutes ago. She suspected that the Indian guy stole the Ghee from our shop.
So I checked the cctv and sure enough he was a thief. He walked in empty-handed casually to the rack which stored the Ghee. He spent some time there and he even took out the price tag.
Casually he walked to the first counter and asked the cashier the whereabout of the boss. She told him that the boss was not in. He pretended that he had bought the item and he wanted to exchange for another item.
My cashier took a look at the item and realised that there was no price tag so she couldn't exchange other item for him. He just walked away as if nothing had happened.
I told my cashiers that if anyone should ask about the whereabout of the boss, they should say that he's around somewhere. We wouldn't dare to tell about the incident to the boss. He would definitely get angry and scold all of us.
Stealing has happened quite a number of times even though we have cctv..
