Given Leeann’s gift for storytelling, you might suspect that once in a while she’s exaggerating for effect.

And you would be wrong. All sorts of Horrible and/or Demented Individuals show up at retail counters. And they don’t learn from their mistakes, either. For instance:

Police say the 29-year-old suspect walked into the Walmart in question, grabbed a backpack and filled it up with hygiene supplies and over the counter medicine, according to KXXV-TV.

Employees reportedly had no problem catching her, as she was wearing an ankle bracelet to monitor her whereabouts after she was caught stealing from that very same Walmart, and had been busted by the very same employees, twice before. They recognized her and didn’t let her leave the store with her loot.

You want a punchline? Try this one:

“In her case she didn’t steal food or anything that was a Christmas item, she just basically said she needed the items,” said a detective, noting that she wasn’t stealing Christmas gifts, which is a common occurrence during the holiday season.

Uncle Sugar isn’t subsidizing her? There’s a first.

    As my mom has been known to say: “The smart people don’t generally become criminals.”

    At least the woman in question didn’t threaten a clerk or frighten fellow shoppers. I’d almost be willing to say that should be worth something.

    I do admit I’ve been know to embellish the hell out of a tale. But sometimes I just stand back and let the glory unfold before me. And take notes. Lots of notes.
