Wandered up to the corner shop we used to frequent when we lived in the village previously. No real changes – static village life for you – but he’s lost his young assistant. I asked where the lad had gone and I was told ‘Don’t know’. So I said it again – this lad had worked there for ages. Turns out that they’d finally got around to checking stock and then setup their security cameras. The camera’s caught nothing, but the stock was almost certainly going. So they confronted him – they asked if he was stealing their stock. He denied it. He said he was not several times apparently – and then walked out and stayed away from the shop. Hasn’t been seen since. No complaints from anyone about what they did – so therefore yes, he was indeed guilty of stealing from them. Not good.
