Went to my local Fred Meyer store today. Was in the grocery store section. I see a late teenage or early twenty year old walk by me, open up the doughnut cabinet, grab a maple bar and proceeds to eat it. I stopped in my tracks with a little bit of shock and watched him continue walking and eating it all the way to the Star Bucks lounge section of the store where he had finished eating it and hung out with his friends. I am pretty sure he did not pay for it. I stared him down but he never made eye contact with me. I wanted to approach him and give him a friendly "did you pay for that" reminder (remember, his theft raises the prices of ALL goods for honest people like me and you!). I kind of was pissed. I wanted to grab him by the ankles and shake him until the $.89 for his maple bar came out. But, I had my two little boys with me and did not want to get in a confrontation. Anyhow, what would you do? I was thinking about this more and this punk will probably continue to help himself (steal) in many various ways and he will get caught. But, there will be many victims on the way, which pisses me off. He is going down the path of a smash and grabber and eventually will get caught.... Then, I thought of the Banksters and our Fascist style government that steal from honest citizens via taxes and bail outs on a grander scale and realized my doughnut boy is not necessarily the problem. Anyhow, rant is done. Thanks for listening. Peace... PS. I also now believe that perhaps a lot of theft is done by people who are lazy like my doughnut boy. So, if something is easy to see/obtain/pickup or out in the open, they will go for it. These smash and grabbers are lazy and feel like they are owed something without working for it. IMO.
