Oh ye of little faith in the art of deception.
I was the cash wrap manager for a good run of my eight years there. When a bookseller is netting $6.00 an hour after taxes, a couple twenties here and there to bump it up becomes a bit of an addiction. After a while it's because "I deserve it, godammit. If they won't take care of me after all I do for them, I will take care of me." Imagine working a merch stand with no inventory system while the cholas are literally handing you fistfuls of twenties? That's a lot of temptation for someone whose three months behind on their car payments and their girlfriend is nagging them for a Coach bag for Valentines Day. The only way to avoid internally theft in Moz's case is to institute an inventory system of accountibility, check pockets which is demeaning and never works, or take care of the merch people big time. Buy them the suites. Take them to dinner. Lots of smiles and eye contact. Thieves steal when they feel neglected. Also institute a Secret Shopper Program every show so they think every mascara'd girl saying "I'll take a Barbershop in medium...do you have any swerve for Morrissey stickers?" is someone watching their hands and pockets.
I get these feelings...like w the Kristeen thing? There's something off w merch. And it's linked to Steyn. He knows stuff he's not saying.
well the register tracks totals and breaks down the transactions and when they count down the tills the cash has to amount to what the register totaled or the person the register is assigned and logged on to is responsible and anything over five dollars is is a write up. if they were just gonna say take the cash from a customer and not scan the item then they would have to know the tax added to make the item appear to cost more than what the tag says. youd also have to give change if they say paid with a twenty and you made up the amount ten tweny five. this is hard to do when the register wont open without a managers key or a sale rung and tendered through the register. the counting of the tills is where people can try to take cash also as they have the ability to frame up someone else as incompetent but that also leaves a very obvious pattern after more than two times in a short amount of time all counted by the same manager. you can however have an employee take a bunch of merchandise and sell it second hand on amazon and make money that way. three graphic novels at around twenty a pop all together not taking up any more space than a new hardcover sold at two thirds the value billed like new will net you forty bucks in one go
You are truly insane. You've met the man twice and you think you can read his mind.
Now this is funny! I'd buy one but I don't want to jinx his upcoming Stockholm show (- I'm going)
This one is quite interesting. It's like a comic book character version of Moz where he's 20 years younger, a few stone lighter and sport tats.

The US choices are more attractive, I'd wanted a World Peace mug for a while so hope UPS get it back to blighty in one piece. One question though...how do US medium shirts measure up in comparison to UK medium? Love cats so Moz and a moggin-boo on the same shirt, marvellous! And the charcoal wpinoyb shirt...well that's what we should have had with the album even if it would cost 20 quid more.
