I just don't get why people go shopping, put their purse in the cart and browse the store, leaving their carts unattended. I have walked by many unattended purses at nice stores, nice grocery stores, and the big box stores like Walmart and don't people get it... there are just people itching to take your stuff as soon as you lose sight of your purse! Please - watch your stuff....

By the way, Walmart is not a place to be leaving your wallet/purse unatttended. I have called MV police before to report theft inside the store and I was told that Walmart Loss Prevention was not working that particular night... what??? I was asked to do a citizen's arrest... crazy.
