Dog That Shoplifts

MURRAY (Utah): A thief remains at large after pulling off a daring heist - in the pet food aisle.

Surveillance video at a supermarket in this Salt Lake City suburb caught a dog shoplifting, KSL-TV reported on Wednesday.

The video showed the dog walking in the front door of Smith's Food & Drug in Murray, and heading straight to Aisle 16, the pet food aisle, where it grabbed a bone worth US$2.79 (RM9.81).

The thief wasn't even perturbed by a face-to-face confrontation with store manager Roger Adamson.

"I looked at him. I said 'Drop it!'" Adamson said. "He looked at me, and I looked at him, and he ran for the door and away he went, right out the front door." - AP

After reading this article that was published on THE STAR newspaper on Saturday 27 December 2008. I was thinking to myself, is it really the economics getting that bad as what the economist has predicted until dog have to shoplift in the supermarket? As the jobless rates is going to increase even more in 2009 as recession might hit again.

How long is this going to last and is everyone prepared for this hit in our economy. Without money, it is just hard to survived in this crazy urban city and even more so for those who have a family to take care of. No matter when the recession is it coming or when is the exact time. But it is better to get ourselves prepare for it and it is going to hit big.

Cindy: No doubt materials are getting more expensive and I don't think it is going to go down. And it will only go higher and higher.

Definitely have to find ways to get through this tough time.
