Good thing they didn't steal cucumbers

4 pairs of boots, 3 pairs of jeans, 1 wallet, several gloves.

Sounds like a decent amount of stuff, huh?

Believe it or not, 2 women who were shoplifting actually stole all that by hiding it in the fat folds of their breasts, bellies, and armpits!

Here's the story.

Thank you, Amanda & Carol, for sending this in.

this totally happened in a grocery store i was working in once! this obese man in his own electric wheelchair came in, cruised down the liquor isle and loaded several bottles into the basket of his chair. he then went into the handicapped bathroom, and came out later without the bottles in his basket. when loss prevention stopped him and patted him down they couldn't find the bottles, so they pulled over a seat and asked him to get off his chair so it could be thoroughly searched. after protesting his innocence and threatening to sue for being discriminated against he finally stood and got off his wheelchair - and a bottle slipped out from under his belly flab and smashed on the floor! when he sat back down and loss prevention checked under his enormous gut they found another four bottles of liquor!

These ladies must have awesome physiques to conceal those booties.
And billfolds in the fatfolds .... how navel can you get? Tumtittytumtittytumtumtum......
OK, I will ask then......where do you think they might have hidden the cucumbers?

In my part of the globe, whole FROZEN chickens have been known to follow the same route out of shops!

Ugh! I always thought it was a myth that remote controls could get lost in fat folds, but after that story... it may be possible. Scary! And funny, too, morbidly. :)

I work loss prevention. Once, I watched an older, heavier woman go around the store for an hour. However the things that she was taking off the racks weren't going back and they weren't in her cart. She was stealthily cramming them down her pants.
I took her back and she lifted up her shift; I saw nothing there, other than stomach. Then she started pulling the stuff out. Three sweaters, and a bra still on the hanger. A HANGER. You couldn't tell it was in there, it was ridiculous. It just looked like a part of her fat roll.

I think they need to LOSE stuff, not gain it.

And yet people complain that fat people aren't treated like subhumans, mocked and laughed at like circus freaks.

Because, you know, skinny people never hide things when they shoplift.

"gross" indeed.

My wife is a physical therapist and was helping a large woman transfer out of bed when she "discovered" a half-eaten sandwich that was lost under a roll of belly fat! Must not like the hospital food... had to pack her own.

Anyone ever try to place the 6 EKG chest leads on these types? Nasty business!

GROSS. Sadly, it doesn't surprise me one bit. When I did a brief and regretable stint in retail pharmacy, you would not believe how DISGUSTING a hot summer day would get. These HUGE women would come in spilling out of their tank tops and when they paid their copay, they would reach into their cleavage for a nasty, sopping wet sweaty dollar bill. I used to have a giant tweezers stashed at the register for just such occassions. Sometimes, they would get all indignant that I didn't want to touch their funk and not once did anyone apologize or seem embarrassed in the least.


OMG...honestly, there just aren't words for this kind of stuff. Seriously, why is it so difficult for some to the bounds of appropriate or even acceptable behavior.

The degree of fat-phobia present in the majority of the comments on this article is both frightening and sickening. That there's only one other person pointing it out makes me realise how normalised this level of nastiness must be in the US.

Thanks for giving me yet another reason (along with the TSA strip-search or grope-down) for not visiting the US.

WV: "onoica" as in "o no, I can't possibly say something less than extremely negative about fat people".
