shrink
 n.— «My second and last 2 carat ring was stolen. The guy was “looking” at it and turned around and bolted out the door with it. LOVELY! That’s close to $13,000.00 worth of shrink (Wal-Mart slang for merchandise that we can’t account for) just in three rings that I know of. At Wal-Mart over 70% of our shrink is due to paperwork issues, not theft like most people think.» —“I’m still standing” by Michaela Wherever I went…I was running! May 14, 2006.
