I used to work at a photo store in a very upscale town. I had this one older lady (late 50s or early 60s) who came in while driving her Mercedes, wearing a fur coat over a track suit! She wore about two pounds of makeup and ten pounds of gold... I hesitate to call it jewelry... but lots of big, gaudy, chunky GOLD. The "best" part of it was was that she always came in three sheets to the wind.
WHY I never called the cops, I don't know.
One day, she came in to pick up her pictures and wanted to pay for her $8 order with a HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL.
When I asked if she had anything smaller, she opens her wallet wide and slurs, "No! See?"
She had about three or four thousand dollars in her wallet! All right thieves, let's do the math: a $40,000.00 car (this was in the early 80s, so a $40K car was BIG bucks), a ten thousand dollar mink coat, roughly ten thousand dollars in chunky gold jewellery and four thousand in cash. Hmmm, that makes the total roughly $64,000 worth of goods and cash some NAT could have scored!
The fact that she drove around without anything happening to her tells you just how safe this upscale town is. WHY the cops never caught her weaving on the road is beyond me!
