You could walk out with the aerosol, and create a decoy for yourself by dropping the lid in someone elses bag

Dear Mrs. Squiffs
While we thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty
Card, the Manager of our store in Chumley Martin is considering banning you
and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his
antics.
Below is a list of offences over the past few months all verified by
our surveillance cameras:
.................................................. .................
1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's
trolleys when they weren't looking.
2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute
intervals.
3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to
feminine products aisle.
4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone,
"Code 3" in housewares..... and watched what happened.
5. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.
6. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and
told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a
Calor gas stove.
7. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him,
he began to cry and asked, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"
8. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a
mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.
9. November 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the
Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the
antidepressants were.
10. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming
the "Mission Impossible" theme.
11. December 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the "Madonna look"
using different size funnels.
12. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled
"PICK ME!" "PICK ME!"
13. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker,
assumed the foetal position and screamed "NO! NO! It's those voices
again."
And; last, but not least:
14. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a
while; then yelled, very loudly, "There is no toilet paper in here."

Yours sincerely,

Charles Brown
Store Manager

Anyone who does this is vastly immature. I work in retail, and honestly, Men are better shoppers then Women.

Women cause A LOT more messes, very dirty about things, steal far more merchandise then men do, men ask less question, and they give you much less of a hard time at the register then a women does.

Women like to shop, so they do. But they suck at it. Men hate to shop. But they can do it.

Women are over-rated when shopping. They charge more then they should spend, they cause more messes, and very filthy in dressing rooms, and usually do not take care of their merchandise very well when selecting.

Point is, women suck at shopping, yet they love to do it, so we let them do it.

*NOTE* Not a bash on women, it's just truth be told with my work experience in retail.
