What an idiot ... why would you risk your job for $20 worth of stuff. Darwinism as work.

No argument there, that's for sure.

Stealing is stealing is stealing - no matter the risk of a job loss or not. People seem to think that "things" are owed to them or that they're above the laws of our society. This paricular incident does reek of "idiocy", doesn't it? Wonder how many times this character has asked himself, "why did I do that?" (Good lesson for the "little ones", too!!)

What a complete idiot. My guess is the manager must have been doing it for a few months and they started watching him. It's probably not the first time in his career he has done something like this. I wonder what he has stolen from H&R Block? Perhaps peoples SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS and BANK INFORMATION!!!!

Yes, we need to know his name. I think I will call H&R Block and see what they say.

Another minor detail: H&R Block is not an accounting firm, they do not perform audits, etc.

I call for Details! Details! Details!

......

Hey Dan: Can you get the video from Sears and put on YouTube of this of this scoundrel tax preparer in action?
