Should Stores Checking Receipts be Made Unlawful?

It seems most people who post on the internet claim stuff like this.  

You don't need to believe me.

Maybe am not black, but this 459lb woman with upper lip hair named Imelda. 

Maybe I live in Mexico, and am just very savvy on Canadian politics as am aiming to walk across your soft border.

Hey Loblaws has put in a lot of self-checkouts to save themselves money, and theft has gone up, and so their solution is to harass you by putting in scanners requiring you to check your receipt LOL:

I'm going to continue to scan my organic produce in as the regular kind and Galen Weston can kiss my ass.

Heh, seriously.

Its like one of my friends who we wound up realizing we just couldn't be friends anymore.

He felt entitled to get s*** for free, based on how hard his life was.

Embarrassing to go to a restaurant with him, as he would always look for drama.

IE delicious steak at a Montana's restaurant. 

He starts to make his face, that I already know is him demanding a free dinner.

He is adamant the steaks weren't aged. Brings over a waiter, telling him the steaks aren't up to par. All while I am inhaling mine.

As he leaves to talk to his manager, my friend scolds me for it:

"You're going to eat that?!"

I am thinking to myself I would bathe in it, if I could....

Long story short, scolds the manager and is disappointed. 

The manager concedes these aren't aged for 48 hours. They only did for 24, due to time constraints. They still melt in the mouth.

He gives him a coupon for a free makeup up supper, doesn't charge us for our current "ordeal".

We walk out, and my friend is all smiles on the score that he got. Like actually proud of this s***.

I was embarrassed, felt horrible for the waiter, the manager having to deal with customers like this trying to trump up BS issues to get free food. 

His mindset is the same, thinking of the rich CEO, but not caring about the struggling waiter who will pay for this, and then some.

Take from the rich, make everyone poor, and then everyone is miserable, together.

20% of people will never steal, regardless of the circumstances. 20% of people will steal no matter what. 60% of people will steal if they think they can get away with it. That means 80% of the customers in a store are potential thieves. The receipt check is there to deter that 60%. The store has every right to take such actiona as is reasonable to protect their interests. I find the clowns who whine the loudest about "being accused of stealing" are the most irritating and I presume they are probably prone to stealing if they think they could get away with it.

If my support for a business that takes these measures to protect themselves helps them to reduce their loses, I am all for it.

Am all for checking everyone. 

I don't think random checks are effective. 

People like me wind up disproportionately getting targeted.

Muslim people with beards with a gym bag, automatically look suspicious.

To me, Costco has the right idea.

When I was in the shoe department in Walmart, I saw a pair of old worn shoes left on the floor.  Obviously someone put on a pair of new shoes and walked out.  There are lots of crooks around.  Can't blame stores for checking.  They probably lose a lot of money by shop lifters.  I am not sure what the best way to do it is.  We live in a world of many crooks.  So businesses have to protect themselves somehow.  Best to just go along with it and be agreeable.

A standard question when you cross a border is do you have more than 10K in cash or how much cash do you have?

Another is did you buy any liquor when visiting.

I was about 4 when my dad tried to get back across the border on a family trip to Niagara Falls. 'Do you have any liquor' the border guard asked? 'No' dad replied. 'But dad, what about the beer in the trunk' I piped up? 'Bwahahaha' said my grandma beside me in the back seat.

It was always her favourite old family story.

Should dad have left me or Grandma at the side of the road?

What these crooks don't care for, is ironically they often portray themselves as victims being forced to steal, but that in doing so--cost more to those who unfortunately happen to be honest.

We opened up a restaurant, and just invested heavily in CCTV cameras.

If someone stole from me, would be petty enough to press charges even if its 20$.

I would send a strong message through it. I will gladly ruin your life with a jail record, and won't hesitate to use every legal lever to do so.

If that fails, will post your footage dining and dashing on our Facebook and YouTube and humiliate you into paying or at least in getting a name we can lay those charges into.

I have seen barber shops do this, successfully. 

Nothing like public shaming to get someone to pay.

All else fails, we do what most gas stations do, and you prepay for your food.

I have zero sympathy for people like this.

Most homeless people I have seen will ask you for food. For water.

There is a level of entitlement behind going to get fine dining food, and not only feeling entitled to it, but entitled to it for free, robbing staff and the owners at large who rely on that revenue, without a care.

The level of narssissism to me, warrants heavy handed consequences to be brutally handed down to such a person.

I shop at Costco, and have gotten used to the standard receipt check at the exits. You technically sign up for it with your membership.

However, many piggy back one membership for multiple people (or so I have heard....honest).

So, self checkouts have staff checking your photo on your membership at some branches.

I have had my bags "randomly" searched so many times, am starting to believe nothing random was about it.

I get it at airports, but is it justified in stores?

Do you comply?

This is just a result of our overpopulated society. People in general are corrupt, untrustworthy and indoctrinated to believe in an innate sense of entitlement. In small rural communities the opportunities to abuse the systems are limited. In large overpopulated urban centers the opportunities are limitless and if something can be abused it will be! Don't like receipt checks? Go through the cashier or order delivery. Shoplifting is theft and as long as our ludicrous judicial system focuses on criminal "rights" rather than "property" rights I have little sympathy for those who believe receipt checks are an invasion of their rights.

I never had more than 10K but  I have taken as much as 4K when we used to winter down south and never had an issue. I always declared it even though it was less than 10K.  Do you think people should be able to bring in suitcases full of cash, no questions asked?

Racial profiling is another issue.

Why? Statics clearly indicate "criminal types" and sadly race is a big part of it. Don't like racial profiling then perhaps your "race" should collectively look in the mirror and address the issue rather than continually pointing an accusatory self pity finger.
