Helped to successfully capture two ladies who shoplifted two sunglasses from the store.  They were pros.  Spidey senses went off as they were leaving.  Our lady felt the same way and went back to look at the sunglass display and we all knew at least one of the frames that were missing.  She called the cops and I went out the door looking to see if I could find them in their car before they split.  Didn't see anything suspicious and walked down the sidewalk looking into other shop windows and finally spotted them in the dress shop a couple of doors down.

Went in to make sure and told some staff there what was up and with who and that the cops were on the way.  I stood near the door in case they were going to move on so I could tell the cops where they went.  The cops got there really quick and nabbed them in the store with the frames and also with about $1,000 worth of stuff from that store as well.  That didn't matter cuz they never left that store but they had our stuff outside of our store also worth $1,000.  They went quietly and the cops were very low key in their approach and apprehension.

We usually never catch anyone, cuz we usually figure out what happened way too late.  Not this time !  Even had good video.   The ladies looked familiar from another incident many years ago in another place I worked at for a minute.  

The dress shop owner made a sad lament about stereotypes regarding the thieves, but it is what it is.  Yes, they were black.

 
I might posit that your other losses, the ones you did not have a funny feeling about, came about because the perps were white, therefore you didn't don your "holy shit black people are in the store" demeanor.

In any case, it's gratuitous and not a little racist that you had to mention their ethnicity. E2E did a lot better than that when we was actually beaten.

I'm going to feed them. I don't give a shit if I starve but theres no
bloody way I'll let that happen to my hawks. I'll give them away
before I let them go hungry. Well, they're hungry all the time,
that's their nature but I won't let them be in an unhealthy state. 
Plus every time I go out I come back so sick, it takes 2 days to
recover with the heart crap and the arthritis in my feet and elbow skin. 
At least she got to fly about and sit in some nice trees and watch the
rabbits run by. I should have taken India. Oh well. It was her turn... so.

Also, the property is posted and a cop drove up just when we were
heading back. so I called Tessy and soon as he saw the hawk, he left.
The cops don't care about falconers there I guess. I'm glad I didn't
have to talk to him, though.  

And I had a bottle of root beer.

Checked my bank account and found out I spent about 10 dollars too
much on food and now Mag doesn't have enough gas to drive to her parents
house and beg for rent money. Anyway, I sold my guitar and this bidet
seat one of my clients gave me. I made a mistake on which model it was
and it turned out to be the cheaper model so he wanted a bunch of money
back and I had to buy him a 150 dollar amazon gift certificate. We were
all excited thinking we suddenly got rich but ha ha ha the joke was on us!
Hi-Larry-Us! Then I forgot that spent 23 dollars on food so I rented a movie
and it cost 6 bucks so that's really why were short on gas money. Because
I'm an idiot and can't remember anything or do anything right. HA HA HA!
The Joke's on me!

   No,I'm the idiot.There can only be one.You're just going to have to get your shit together and move on to another gig.

Seems to me any Unix-based  OS ought to have a reasonably high crossover familiarity to/for Mac users.

 
 I downloaded and installed several flavors of Linux before settling on Opensuse. It had been more than 10 years since I messed with Linux so I wanted to see how its evolved. I come from a UNIX background as I was a UNIX guru at Motorola starting on Dec 11/70's and later HP and Sun from their first stuff up through the Sparc stuff. I even had a Sparc 10 at home for a while running Solaris until it got to outdated and sold it. Its been a few years since I worked daily in that enviornment so its been fun getting back into this stuff and learning all the new stuff thats been added or changed since.

Just have to make sure I can get it to do everything I need an OS to do.
