Luis: Wow, what happened here? I was only away on vacation for two weeks.

Thelma: While you were gone, we redesigned this store with an anti-theft system.

Luis: Is that why there are surveillance cameras and security guards everywhere?

Thelma: That’s right. We’re losing too much money to shoplifters and I’m finally doing something about it. From now on, it’s zero tolerance. I don’t care if they’re petty thieves or kleptomaniacs. I’m rooting out every instance of shoplifting and prosecuting to the full extent of the law.

Luis: What are all these cases for?

Thelma: I’m putting the pricier merchandise under lock and key, and I’ve put security tags on most other items. I’m weighing whether to do exit inspections. I don’t want to go overboard.

Luis: [sighs] No, you wouldn’t want to do that.
