Default UPS Employees Steal GTA IV, Get Fired

Normally you only have to worry about the delivery guys losing / breaking your stuff. Apparently now you have to worry about it being stolen by employees now too. Nice, real nice.

The source added that the thieves stole single copies for personal use, rather than entire boxes for pre-release sale at hefty markups. Finding those responsible for the theft was made easy by the company's loss-prevention measures.

I would worry more if my new Laptop or my NEW LCD screen was stealed.When it's small it's easier to be stealen.

I don't know what's worse . Stealing something or losing your job for 49.99 $.

There is unfortunately/fortunately no cure for stupidity. IMO there are few things worse than a thief, except maybe a stupid thief.

Stupid theives are great. They get caught and punished, and laughed at. It's the smart ones that are troublesome.
