Actually, it is Walmart's problem, not ours!!! We are not policing anyone with our CCW and we only use our CCW to protect ourselves that's all. It is the cash register person's problem if they don't look everywhere on the cart!

So are we saying because this is Walmarts problem that we will stand there and let it happen? We are still as able to open our mouths and say something to an employee as we were prior to getting our CCWs. What is wrong with me telling an employee what happened. As said earlier, if I wanted to steal from walmart all I would have to do is buy one thing and walk out with 2 or 3 and keep my recipt out, but I don't why because I am a good citizen which is also why we should report things like that.

I doubt that "most" of the store's $50k losses is external theft. Not when I read about employee theft-from-the-company schemes left and right. I just read about one (of course, this one was caught) in which a couple of employees were issuing gift cards to themselves somehow. (Yeah, they're not bright, and were caught, but how many are not?)

I didn't see any need to alert her manager that she'd missed a $20 item, for that matter.
I am not going to deliberately steal, but I am not going to hold myself responsible for making sure the store's employees don't screw up. If an item rings up for less at the register than it showed on the shelf, I don't care how much it's off by, I'm taking the lower price and saying nothing. That's not stealing, by the way. That's letting their incompetence cost them -- a lot like (although not exactly like) the scenario described in the thread starter.
I sure as hell would not want to put myself in front of the wrath of the typical Walmart shopper as a snitch! Do you think I want to have to pay a lawyer to defend myself for having been forced to shoot him when he got violent with me?!

Hahahaha! Just tonight, I was at Walmart, and I used the self-checkout. For the first time ever, rather than using my card, I paid with cash.

What did I do?
I told the woman who was there to tend to the (inevitable and frequent) problems that occur at the self-checkout, and I waited while she actually opened a register to get me my penny.
I made light of it, saying, "Look, I know it's just a penny, but accurate is accurate, and the machine messed up. I'd hate to think that Walmart is getting a penny off each customer using the..." and the girl said something to the effect of that they're not doing that. (How would you know that definitively anyway, honey? )
I just thought it was funny. I've read here and there about gas pumps that shave a penny worth of gas from each pumped amount, and if it's a super-pumper station, they can be making quite a haul if they're not caught. Again, who pays?

No such confrontation existed, and your reporting of a crime specifically doesn't "count" as any manner of escalation. Any retribution by the criminal directed at you, however, would be the sort of thing the "escalation" elements would be pertaining to.
