Just stole some fancy cheese, toothpaste and toothbrushes from Countdown, just slipped them into my pockets when in a judged blind spot. Haven't done this for many years but I'm broke as fuck.
I've seen other shoplifting threads recently but I need inspiration for my next capers here in New Zealand. Don't want to get caught as am here on a work visa but I'm too lazy to work.
What can I get away with easily?
>Also NZ thread
You're probably on one of these in a break room somewhere
OP here what should happen if I do get caught, standard procedure for backpackers
but in saying that, if you do get caught, just walk out, legally us shop employees can't touch you, so just walk out, dont get into a car or anyting because they will take your number plate down.
I heard that some backpackers have been getting boxed water, removing the bag inside and just filling the box with expensive stuff. Then they just go through the self serve checkout and pay the $4 for water
Tastes like shit too. First day off weed after 3 month binge.
This is my dog Dave. Can he be the new /nzg/ official dog?
He's cool as fuck
I fixed it for you (one of the stars was a bit off)
Yo', Dunedin here. Went to Kenko today, was pretty good, 7.50 for a small box, 12.50 for a large, good range of meats to pick from (yeriyaki, sweet and sour, katsu and karaage plus others I think)
it's like subway, just with donburi. pick you size, your veges (cabbage, red cabbage, lettuce, carrot,onion, pickles, beetroot, corn) and your sauces, then two meats.
You could make this stuff at home pretty easy on saying that, but good for convenience
obviously a far superior flag
OP here, obviously been struggling recently financially, am looking to save money for accommodation so I'm considering pitching up a 2 man tent somewhere in the woods in NZ (top of the South island, Blenheim) live with nature for a month before getting the ferry north.
Day temperature averages around 15 degrees C. Haven't had a massive amount of camping experience but I'm sure I could give it a go.
Please bump with any outdoors advice for noobs, haven't got any cooking equipment yet, got warm clothes, access to blankets/pillows and about $70 NZD
>Pic related, my shitty tent.
You're going to die though. The cold and the possums will rape you.
Go to an outdoors store or place that has those free brochures about 'the great outdoors' for good tips.
Watch where you place the tent, don't put it next to big trees that look unstable or on soft ground near cliffs that could crumble in the night.
I've got my eye on what appears to be a partially buried boxcar of some sort at an angle pointing skyward. There is earth and foliage inside where I can pitch a tent but both sides are open to the elements. I could cover these and maybe have a fire inside but so should mention this spot is directly opposite the hostel I'm getting kicked out of tomorrow...
Temp can vary pretty wildly in a small area, but it's not going to be anything even remotely warm in the night no matter where you set up shop.
At a guess, five degrees at the most. Probably closer to zero, maybe colder in a bad spot on a bad day.
This is a quality idea. As an added bonus, you can cuddle the stranger for warmth so you don't die as quickly.
it's up to you to decide what the best place is. Don't leave a fire on overnight, though (god that's a stupid idea)
And if people find you camping in places not meant for camping, I wouldn't be surprised if they call the coppas
go to nelson / takaka / motueka and find some hippies, they love foreigners. just make sure you ask them where you can find weed and acid and let them know you always bury your shit, and you'll be in the clear.
Australian living in Canterbury reporting in. What's up my kiwibros.
Not a truckie but seriously considering it.
Huh? You live in a tent? Just move to Christchurch and get a job. Shits not hard, even if you're unskilled you'll get a job on a building site or road gang.
TBH they are the best hot dogs I've ever had in NZ, save for the fresh dipped fried ones at A&P shows. Beats any local fish and chip shop around. they're normally $3. They have a high turn over.
Oh shit waddup. I'm in Auckland though.
I will unload in his beard
I have a few tips from when I went through a rough time barely able to afford rent as well as enough for 2 meals a day.
One big tip is look for the most nutrition in the smallest packages and take time when in stores to locate cameras. Not going around staring at then, but out of your peripherals.
You can't legally be stopped from walking out here in the States....but they do have a surprising amount of people who "fall" while leaving the stores. So still be careful.
If you decide to go camp just know that there's a high chance someone or something will find your camp. So make sure you can take it with you when you go. And look for a safe storage space when you need it
And I have more tips that kept me alive and eating but seeing as how you admit are just a lazy asshat I'm going to save them to for a different board.
Like seriously, just go apply for a job before you are homeless and become a dirty unsuitable unhireable dirty crazy mess of a human being.
I'll add to this. If you're homeless;
>Shower in local pools
>Buy old fruit from fruit and veg shops, you can get a massive box for $2 and only some of it is rotten
>sleep during the day instead of at night, it's safer
Same guy here:
Seriously consider a job in security. If you say you re ok working nights it's the easiest job I've ever had. Just get paid to be awake and watch cameras while listening to YouTube or lectures for school, TV shows.
You basically just keep an eye out for people who know the theft tricks you do, and learn new ones to use when in need of food.
And it helps you learn how to not be a lazy bum i and shows you why you don't want to be one. Including some basic skills that when talked about correctly sound cool on a résumé.
Order pinapple and artichoke hearts
It's either great mix of salty and sweet or just bland depending on their method.
Get yourself some bacon next time fool.
T b h I've never been too big on GayFL. Also commiserations on coming from Vic. Always good to catch up with a fellow strayan. Im here for work, got sick of being laid off, 3x in 4 years working mines. Mate came here for Chch rebuild, i followed him not long after. Shacked up with one of the few decent looking local chicks. What bought you out here?
For a second I thought you were maori what with the thievery.
>Don't want to get caught as am here on a work visa but I'm too lazy to work.
But I hope you're not a nigger. You sure are acting like one though.
Go online and vow to walk and camp your way from one end of the country to the other in cause of something (cancer or aids idk), accept donations for it, use donations to pay for your food, expenses etc and donate the rest.
>paid tour of NZ
A guy did that at the Wellington Sony Store with a Playstation 4. Just replaced the insides with rocks wrapped in bags, returned the rockbox for a full refund, kept the console.
Free ride home then yo.
Chances are all you'd get is community service if a charge was pressed for anyway unfortunately. Stoopid judicial system. So might just be banned and told to move on. Or you might step on a UXO and die. Live life to the fullest /b/ro.
I dunno, some shit. They're all the same to me.
Nobody wears their name-badge because they they're adults being treated like children and its the only rebellion they have left.
Fuck you, mate. If I say I can't make it cheaper its because I want to keep my fucking job.
Okay, so here's the thing:
Firstly, them telling you to ring Apple is fucking illegal and against consumer law. JB *have* to take care of it. They have to take the item, call on behalf of the customer and have it returned within 4 weeks or they have to give you a new one.
Apple, on the other hand, have fuck-all infrastructure in New Zealand for repairs and dealing with it as a retailer is a fucking nightmare. JB management also don't want to take responsibility unless they have to.
Anyway, they broke the law by saying that. They have to give him a new one.
You may be able to do it via kickstarter, I dono their T&C, but theres bound to be some website like that that'll allow the process.
Don't use your name here but surely you have some sort of social media, promoting yourself through that would be a good way to go. if you're from overseas, perhaps a good cause would be skin cancer awareness, talk about how nice NZ is but what a danger skin cancer poses to people, give money to the skin cancer foundation and take tons of pics of you out and about in nz in the sun with a hat and sunscreen on (living off the donations too hurhur). aim to make like $20k by the time you travel the country or something?
Just got rolled for sustained loss of traction, months license suspension, but they also green stickered my car? just got a wof last week wtf can thy do that?
They rambled some shit about how he has Apple Care, ring Apple and get a case number, see what Apple suggests, etc
I told him he should have requested a replacement phone, in the meantime, but students, smh
>JB *have* to take care of it.
No they don't. JB Hi Fi are actually awesome as they usually try their best to fix shit and if they can't, they tend to deal with the manufacturer directly. They go above and beyond and it's nice
>Source, work for a phone manufacturer.
public place means a place that, at any material time, is open to or is being used by the public, whether free or on payment of a charge, and whether any owner or occupier of the place is lawfully entitled to exclude or eject any person from that place
Even private property can be considered a public place.
If a product is faulty, it's up to the retailer to make the situation right, prior to going to the manufacturer.
Read it, my dude
Blenheim local here. apply for jobs at every winery/vineyard you can find. they take on anyone when the season picks up. just gotta survive the winter man.
also, pretty easy to live off the land. set snares for rabbits and stuff. no one likes a thief (been in your situation before though, stealing to not die, in a foreign country)
Lol @ jews who think they know everything about that act.
>4 regretful years at the fucking warehouse
>Huurduurr dole bludging hori's thinking they can get free shit for bringing up "consumer rights"
>me getting promoted to manager for having the balls to tell them to fuck off, and ignoring their "small claim court" bluff
Unless you can deactivate all your shit there in the store, then the phone you give them back can't be wiped and resold. And obviously you can't do that if its broken. Apple is fucking stupid and its not an ideal situation for anyone, but New Zealand law has his back.
And they can do temporary phones, but it has to get raised to Head Office at that point.
Most of us wear them at least some of the time. Sony usually give us a few cool ones from time to time. The yellow JB ones get real dirty...
Under the Act, your consumer rights are expressed as a series of “guarantees” that a seller automatically makes to you when you buy any good or service ordinarily purchased for personal use.
Retailers and other such suppliers guarantee their goods will:
Be of acceptable quality (see definition below).
Be fit for a particular purpose that you asked about.
Match the description given in advertisements or sales brochures, or by the sales assistant.
Match the sample or demonstration model.
Be owned by the consumer, once purchased.
Be a reasonable price, if no price or pricing formula has been previously agreed.
Be delivered on time, where the supplier is responsible for delivery. When no time is agreed, delivery must still be within a reasonable time.
Manufacturers (the definition includes importers) in New Zealand guarantee that:
Spare parts and repair facilities will be available for a reasonable time.
They will honour any written warranty that comes with their products.
Goods are of acceptable quality.
Goods match their description.
I work with customer care in harvey norman
If you take a broken screen for the latest iphone to them and keep escalating the case they will repair for free
I even got $2000 worth of water damage for a macbook done free
Manufacturer warranties and the CGA
If the products come with a manufacturer's warranty, this guarantees that they will provide a remedy such as repair or replace products if they are faulty. If the manufacturer does not follow the terms of their warranty, you can claim for compensation from them under the CGA.
Also if there are no spare parts or repairs available and you were not told this when you bought the products then you should go back to the manufacturer.
This is now nzjew thread all hitler meme excepted
nigga you can't even go bush without dying and then being found by some fucker who is playing pokemon go.
just sleep in the streets like a real homeless person. that way you can sit there and have change given to you so you can eat.
Also, fit for purpose on a phone includes 2 things.
1. It can turn on
2. It can make calls
If it can do both of those things, under consumer law, it is technically fit for purpose.
If the >retailer< won’t replace or repair the computer or refund your money as is required under the Consumer Guarantees Act then you can take your case to the Disputes Tribunal.
Retailer has to stay involved, son. Can't just tell them to go elsewhere.
Because we're not a real country. Look at maps, NZ doesn't exist
Fuck off cuck. At least sign in properly next time
Retailer should be your first port of call, and they should try to remedy the situation, especially when you're paying for a phone you can't use, they should offer a loan phone
Doesn't turn on. Told him he should have bought Samsung tbh
They don't. If they did my job would be 1,000,000 times easier. If the product has a manufacturers warranty it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to fix the product. You CAN request a replacement or a refund from the retailer, providing the issue cannot be fixed, and it is within the right of return period, otherwise it's entirely up to the manufacturer.
Probably just needs a soft reset anyway:
Just press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons simultaneously for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. You can let go of both buttons after the Apple logo appears.
Your phone will go through the usual process of starting up.
You'll be back in your home screen.
>Doesn't turn on. Told him he should have bought Samsung tbh
If that's the case then they have to replace or refund it, no questions asked. Though they are allowed to attempt to repair it first, under their own consumer protection. The law protects both consumers and retailers.
Tried this when he told me, made 0 difference. Phone doesn't get picked up in iTunes either
Yo, that's what I thought. And it'd be reasonable to ask for a loan phone in the meantime, seeing as it's on contract so he's paying for services he can't use?
Well as much as I appreciate that you have to deal with shitty customers all day too, I will not acknowledge your belief that a retailer can, or should, wash its hands of responsibility in that situation.
I'm not saying they can. You can't reasonably expect a retailer to have the technical mind to fix a technical issue though.
Kiwis are awesome to deal with though. They get it. They listen and do what you say, and don't bitch about having to send their phone to Auckland for repairs. Aussies on the other hand are entitled fucking retards who THINK they know everything but know so little that they end up fucking things up worse.
Wrong flag mate
literally the most useless retail assistants. If I need any help i have to go to the fucking checkout counter and ask for someone because dipshits are no where to be found or avoiding eye contact with you and running to the back of the store. every damn time.
Cheers bro. The tech bay I work in get shit sorted quick. if theres no fault found we get it done in 2 weeks max. the only jobs that go over 2 weeks is when the repairer is waiting for parts from the manufactuerer
Carry me nigger
>>>>how is this girl not in jail nz law great joke
IS HERE ON A WORK VISA.....
Fucking New Zealand up since ages ago.
That's not rugby mate. Its sevens. A travesty of a 'sport'.
Its what rounders is to baseball. No one cares for it, I doubt anyone could even name any of the players in the team.
Also I think the chicks won a medal. Not sure what colour.
Fuck I love catching you cunts shoplifting, really breaks the monotony of the job. Oh you're wearing thongs and Adidas fucking everything and trying to look legit picking up eye fillet? Hah get fucked, get it out of your pants and go elsewhere.
tfw people still won't listen to me. been saying this shit for years
What we need is some sort blocking device to keep ppl out...
Who said "wall"
I didn't say "wall"
You said "wall"
If that's what you want to do, thats fine... If you're a moron.
>filling up a water bottle in the sink
>notice daddy long legs panicking as it gets sprayed with water
>pick it up and put it onto the counter
>it immediately runs into the sink and drowns itself, goes down the drain
My experiences are half and half. There's a mix between people who are helpful, and then people to take five attempts to somewhat understand a sentence.
Still not as bad as Dominoes, holy shit is that bad.
