But it doesn't end with just regular shoplifting...
In Norway we've got this kind of fee on bottles, kind of like an environmental fee I guess (except for on wine and liquor bottles). Say you buy a bottle of 7up: you pay the price for the pop/soda/whatever and then you pay NOK1 or NOK2,50 depending on the size and type of bottle. When you return the bottle, you get the NOK1 or NOK2,50 back. There are machines to return them in in most grocery stores, you get a receipt for the bottles you have returned that you can hand in at the till, and you can use it to pay for your groceries, or you can just get the money. There are also charity boxes next to the bottle machines in some stores so that you can just put the receipt in those, which is what I usually do the few times I've bought a bottle of something. I don't know which other countries has this system, I think at least Sweden and Denmark has it as well.
Many poor/homeless people pick up bottles they find lying around and rummage through bins just to get the money for them. And just the other day some teenagers were collecting empty bottles to finance the school band or something. I like this system, you get money and you help the environment.
Anyway. That little old
And that is why she's not a lady.
