Default A new low in pond scum.

One of my visually impaired turners was in Walmart and showed two of her pens to the clerk when she was checking out. Another customer asked if she could see them, and took off with them! Gwen is almost totally blind, and couldn't see the person well enough to even describe her. She made two new ones yesterday and I burned names on both of them!

I can't even respond politely. If Gwen would like some kits, PLEASE PM me.

Sharon, do you have them drill on the lathe? If you do, I can send you some round blanks for Gwen. These would be my DiamondCast Blanks with real diamond in them.

It would be nice if Walmart viewed a security camera that I am sure shows the registers and identified this fine individual.

Yep. Police should be advised. Police will review camera recording if complaint is made. It is robbery. The have done it before and will do it again.

That is pitiful! Some people are lower than low lifes! If it's a fairly new Walmart, they have high def cameras and can see everything very clearly. I would check into that and prosecute. My wife was a asset manager for Walmart for a few years and their cameras could count the change in a customers hand.
