Why You Should Never Shoplift…

While shopping in Flagstaff yesterday, I came across a shoplifting sign a little different than ones I have seen in other stores. It really doesn’t need much explanation to be effective. Just a warning, if your a kid reading this post it might not be for you.

So here is the sign:

Pretty straight forward if you ask me.

I started thinking, maybe more stores should use these…haha.

What do you think?

    Wow that sign would work. Most of the signs just say don’t shoplift which is fine but it really doesn’t put it into a real life situation haha. I need to put this outside of one of my businesses.

    Firstly, I’d like to say “hahahahaha, hilarious”. This reminds me of the signs we have here in Australia.

    There are signs that say “WANT LONGER LASTING SEX?” in big letters. If you’d like to see the image: http://www.somebodythinkofthechildren.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/longer_lasting_sex.jpg

    Now the other day on the way to work I had seen the sign has the word CENSORED put over the top of the word sex. It made me laugh because now it says “WANT LONGER LASTING CENSORED?”

    Here’s what the billboards look like now with the censored on them:

    I think that sign would be appropriate for some stores, but for regular grocery stores and small food shops, I’d say it’d be going too far. I think it’s funny though.

    Oh, my… I can foresee the reaction of children who see the sign “mom, why is it so”… I wouldn’t wish to be the one to explain:(

    The grocery store I go to has vending machines all over the place with anti-theft stickers that read: “Stop thief! These machines are cleared out daily!”
    I would say that your particular picture of the ass prison thing will make young ones think. At least to let them know that that particular area takes theft serious. Rock on!
