hi everyone! so awhile ago, i got caught at target doing the walkout method and i would like to share some tips on how to successfully do it. these are my tips on big stores such as walmart and target. grocery stores may differ slightly with tips.
• the LP said they began to watch me when I started putting my items into reusable grocery bags. I saw a post on here that said you would be less sus if you bagged your items, and that is not always the case. you may be less sus to other customers, but definitely not to the SA’s.
• that being said, if you do decide to conceal in reusable bags so that you are less sus while walking out, DO SO while moving. I made the mistake of throwing all my crap into bags while standing in an aisle (with a camera. smh at myself.) I thought it was fine because some people like to have their items neatly organized, but this is what caused LP to watch me. bag your items while walking.
• I have done the walkout method at target numerous times and I have only gotten caught once. the day I got caught was on a sunday, and it was around 3 pm. before that, I would use the walkout method on weekday nights and never got caught, even though the stores were dead and cashiers were bound to notice me not paying lol. I assume that during the daytime weekends, LP is more active.
• if you absolutely need your items to be organized but don’t want to use reusable bags because it’s sus, grab a few small cutesy storage boxes and store your items into those to organize them. one day I didn’t have bags and I used this and it worked like a charm! some people don’t use bags at all and it looks perfectly normal. plus, organizational boxes are very useful. and if you don’t need them, you can always donate them. I got the ones pictured below.
that’s all! please keep in mind these are the tips that worked specifically for me, and if other things like using bags work for you then go ahead. please remember to always stay safe. being too cocky and ignoring my gut feeling is what caused me to get caught!
Stimming video. A while back you said you would be more than happy to share my stim videos on your page :) This one is a short simple favorite stims of the month. I also have more of these as well as one super long video featuring every stim toy I own on my youtube channel.
Ah yes hello, thanks for sharing @wyntreblossom199-autismblog!! I love seeing people’s stim toys; I totally want one of those spinner toys you show here.
classics is so great honestly. i was in the middle of writing a 45 marker on who deserves our sympathy in medea. obviously medea, jason was a huge bag of crap. (dont fight me on this) its a good distraction for what is currently going on in my personal life 🙄 I AM AFRAID SOME DREADFUL PURPOSE IS FORMING IN HER MIND 🌚
Warnings: Getting kicked out, drinking, thinking a pole is Jennifer Lopez, probably cussing knowing Zoe
Note: The fact that the reader is Bi is mentioned once
Another Note: This was supposed to be posted on Saturday to make up for not posting anything on Friday but Zoe and I were both doing stuff and we were too busy to post anything. Sorry!
It’s been a rough day. You were late to the bus, had TSA mess with your crap, juggling four bags (your only possessions now), and having your flight rescheduled for three days. Three. And the damn cherry on top? This was all after being thrown out of your home.
Yeah it’s been a bloody great day.
So here you sit at an airport, looking at the canceled flight sign two meters away. It at least the airport wasn’t too disgusting, you tried for optimism and failed as you saw the disgusting bland color of the walls. Oh and of course growling under your breath because you no longer have a penny to your name.
Or you had two-hundred dollars and a savings account but those you couldn’t spend that money on a hotel because god you have school, and then soon a rent. It’s gonna be a nightmare.
Water it is, you think as you stand up and haul your bags around beside you. Three days of staying in uncomfortable chairs, trying to sleep while simultaneously keeping an eye on your bags, and eating trashy airport food.
Life was looking great.
(Oh boy, and that was only the monetary stuff because no way were you touching the emotional stuff till you had access to a shower.)
After sitting down you managed to wrangle a notebook out of your bag to write. This chaos should be documented, shouldn’t it?
While your hand scrawled across the paper with alarming speed a man slammed into you with a cup in hand. “Aw hell, I’m sorry. Oh your shirt is wet and brown, here.” The guy scrambled for napkins at the counter you sat near. (Waitwasthatacoffeeshop-)
