  • Scared...

    :salams,

    Okay imagine this scenario and any advice will be greatly appreciated. :jkk: in advance.

    a sister works at a local express supermarket where on random occasions they have the problem of dealing with shoplifters, like many stores do. Now, a particular shoplifter, white guy, has been shop lifting on a regular basis, he's very problematic and for some reason has cleverly got away with shoplifting without the store handing him over to the police.

    The store gets quite busy so it can be hard to track a shoplifter down or even alert a manager that he is in store in time for him to be caught. So as a customer assistant, the sister looks out and helps the customers, which also entails informing managers about shoplifters...

    He came in today, and heard the sister alert the manager and started verbally abusing her now everything seems alright? as these things happen..but there's a problem, the sister knew this from before but it looks like the shoplifter knows this as well..he lives on her street

    while swearing and what not as he leaves the store today, he mentioned that he knows that, saying:

    "she lives on my street , she gets me I can get her"

    All the managers and colleagues have reassured the sister that its going to be okay, and that shoplifters are always all talk anyway, they also told the sister "he's not right in the head" so "won't really do anything anyway"...but the sister is still scared :S and doesn't really know what to do about it, should she tell her parents?? its a part of her job to inform the manager of the shoplifter being in store, should the sister not do so as she is at risk? what would be the right thing to do?

    yeh she shud tell her parents, anyway if she didnt tell them they might see she seems bit anxious and they wil wonder whats up.
    insha allah she wil b alright. mayb she shud avoid wandering around by herself for a bit? get her dad or bros to take her wen she has to go out. the guy wil probly forget about it soon enough insha allah, cos he is probly thick (he sounds it behaving like that)

      I dealt a lot with shoplifters and i can recognize them by face how dangerous is he going to be. Otherwise normal shopls are too scared even stealing things looking here and there which is their weak point but i dont know about this particular person

        She should tell her parents. Can't she get something written down formally in the supermarket? Like an incident or something like that

          If she tells her parents they will worry though? a bit too much as well :( and the place where she works is near her house, (4/5 min walk) they wouldn't need to really drop her off will they? plus the hours are a hard time for someone to accompany her (early morning/later evenings all male members are not at home as its Salah time or they're at work) so wouldn't it be an inconvenience? she doesn't want to tell her parents for those reasons :(

          There are also times the sister goes out of the house alone as its needed and no one else is available, plus she is still going to have to work for the rest of this month so how can she avoid going out?

              i think stil tell parents, altho they wil worry. they can make dua for u, and their dua wil b worth alot because wen parents make for their child they wil do it very sincerely and alot. insha allah they can try to walk to work and things for the 4-5 mins journey, if not always able then u just make dua and go.. but if they can take u 50% of the time then shop lifter may sometimes notice ur not by urself he cant do nething. he probly wont b on look out whole time he wil get bored?
              make dua wen u go out ur house - bismillah tawakaltu 3ala allah etc

                Shoplifters dont say nothing. Its not like he tried to assault her or threaten her? But she shouldnt go out alone. Thats a good thing. Should be with someone

                    why doesnt the lady just sit at home and get pocket money from her father/brothers. if she did that in the first place, she wouldnt be in this situation **roll eyes**

                          the shoplifter has been banned, but he still slyly comes in and steals in the morning when there are no security guards at the door. They don't have any during the morning, until 3 pm as its only an express store.

                          the lady may need to work because of the situation/circumstances she is in, there is obviously a reason behind everything. As we don't always know the reason behind everything it is better to actually try and resolve an issue rather than looking into a way it could have been prevented..

                            emerald: prevention is better than cure. if the woman in question acted on my advice from beginning then

                            a) she wouldnt be in this situation

                            if she takes it now then:

                            b) she exposes herself to less risk as she wont be wandering around outside at dodgy hours.

                            so in either case - my preventative advice is good for the situation. so the woman should give in her notice and sit quietly at home. **thumbs up**
                            Rajab is a month of cultivation, Shaban is month of irrigating the fields, and the month of Ramadhan is a month of reaping and harvesting.”

                              I agree, but some prevention can't always be applied until certain situations have not improved.
