Let's give the guy some credit. It's not easy to get out of a store with a vacuum cleaner unoticed and he probably wanted a nice Christmas present for the wife. But he should know that women never like something like that as gift and next year to steal some perfume or jewelry or something that women like.

Yeah, but it's a REALLY NICE vacuum he stole for her. He's trying to make up for the cheepo frying pan set he stole from Walmart for her birthday. ;-)

I guess some women would probably be happy with a practical Christmas gift. I remember one Christmas when all my wife wanted was a new washing machine because our's wasn't working. We were really strapped that year and I still remember how disappointed she was when instead of a washing machine I gave her a couple of rolls of quarters for the laudromat. As an aside, it would really have been impressive if the perpetrator here would have walked out of a store with a washing machine.
