    We had a guy here a couple of years ago that figured out a pretty good scam. He figured out a way to get into store after hours by posing as an employee of the gas company. He had a set of stolen coveralls, a toolbox, a van, and an official-looking photo ID that he wore clipped to the collar of his coveralls.

    He got into the store under the pretext of looking for a reported gas leak. He was able to get ahold of some of the day's receipts (several thousand dollars in cash) and some valuable merchandise.

    The police were waiting for him when he went home. His official-looking photo ID was his drivers' license.

    Sheesh! Done with the call, not done with the adjustments (supervisors have to call me back)--grand total, 2 hours, 13 minutes. Total adjustments attempted= 5. Total resolved= 3.

    Oh, give her a break. She's been on hold the the HO forever. That's enough to make anyone do something silly.

    Hey, even Darwin could have made that mistake, LOL. I had to do somethin' while I was dealing with HO (or "nancy, would you mind holding for a second? My system is slow today--ad nauseum every 10 minutes), so what I was doing to pass the time was reading the threads...so yes, I did mean to post it on my other thread...Darwin could not have done any better. Oh wait, maybe I was SPEAKING to Darwin....

    The only difference between a small town and a big town is that in a small one you're more likely to be personally acquainted with the crazy people.
