I would hunt this women down, and confront her.

goldensrbest, is it really worth risking your safety for a few groceries? Let it go. As mentioned, "stuff" happens.

If the woman lives in the building, she shouldn't be hunted down. But she should be ferreted out and named and shamed. If she'd do that to one person in her own building, I'm sure she's been doing it to others as well. Gotta catch people like that. She should be at risk for getting kicked out.

One of the things that disappear during such an overwhelmlng crisis is our social contract. Many are reduced to their more base, prehistoric fears and and to concern only for themselves and their families.

 

Violence and mayhem can ensue.

I feel like this will be a new thing - people either hanging out in grocery store parking lots waiting for an easy mark, or waiting in front of apartment buildings and doing what that woman did.

 

Those, to me, feel more like crimes of opportunity than people who are struggling for food, but I guess you never know.

IMO there is no excuse for this, including resorting to basest human behavior due to social isolation, which we are nowhere even close to yet. The thief is a criminal who lacks a moral compass. Period.

That is horrible! Sorry that happened to you!

Years ago I was dating a guy whos dad had gone to the grocery store. They wrote the cart # on the back of his receipt for pickup and when he brought his car up, the groceries were gone. Someone had watched him and wrote the same # on a piece of paper and took his food. Thankfully, he had his receipt and the store replaced the items free of charge. I can't believe how evil people can be.

@qualityshopper:  Surprised that none of the seniors were carrying a gun which is legal in Ohio. I know that seniors here in AZ do. And most likely would have taken it out and shot the kid or whoever was harassing them in the rear. Not saying it would have been the right thing to do but...
