She is a Known Shoplifter

She is a known shoplifter my Uncle Bill told friend Jim, owner of store. Jim has two employees follow my Aunt Marjorie around, staring at her. Uncle Bill tells the story and we all hoot with laughter. Of course he waits until Marjorie has gone home to tell us. She often boxed his ears when they were children. He has no idea what she would do to him for this.

Oh my. Come to think of it, that would be marvelous practical joke to play on someone. Of course, you could get beaten for it, too.

Uncle Bill owned the Western Auto next to Jim's store. He did it as a "trick" on Marjorie, the very bossy oldest child of their 7 child family. Marjorie complained about people watching her that day, but we did not know the whole story until she left.
