So, I'm in Lowes, down the plumbing supply isle looking for some black pipe parts to hook up the gas grill to my house gas line. I'm standing there & this stupid moron mutant has a couple of shut off valves, like the ones you have under your sink. I see him digging into his pants which are like a size fifty but he looks like a size 32. Next thing I hear is this "Clank" noise as he deposits the valves down his pants where most of the rest of us keep other fond treasures. Then this jerk actually turns to me & says Hello. I did not know what to say except Hi back to him. He then walks back to the shelf with the valves & picks up another four or five & again, right there in front of me I hear "Clank clank,clank..."
He smiles at me & starts a speed walk down the isle. I started after him to follow. As Im going down the isle one of the Lowes red vests is passing so, I tell her about it & she gets on her walkie talkie & tries to get to the front of the store. Needless to say, this jackass somehow made it thru the door & got away with the goods.
My wife was shopping in the rug dept. & came over to the plumbing section after all this happened. When I told her the story, I regretted that I did not continue the chase & put the fool down on the deck. Then my wife reminds me that we live in a state here where any moron can buy a gun with nothing more than a drivers license. Down here they don't care at the hardware store if your insane & drooling as long as you can pay for it & flash the picture ID. Got me thinking that maybe this jackass could of had a gun on him.
So I find the overpriced three black pipe parts I needed. Went to the checkout & all I could think about is how much more am I paying for things because of this moron mutant's stealing.
