Spinning a yarn
My friend is the manager at a grocery store. Recently, he nabbed a shoplifter in the act...
While escorting the suspect to the office at the front of the store (near the cash registers), the shoplifter broke free from his grip and attempted a brazen escape...
I should mention that my friend was an all-county linebacker in high school, so it was with little effort that he brought the shoplifter down with a tackle. He pinned the guy against the pickle display, and then looked up to see a number of surprised shoppers staring at him.
"Everything's fine, Folks," he reassured them. "This guy just tried to go through the express line with more than nine items!"
