I have a history of grand larceny.
I stupidly shoplifted when I was a teenager. You know, the stealing on chap stick when you have money in your pocket.
Let’s not even talk about the early 90′s. I was a walking after-school special.
When I was a new mother I learned the horror of lifting the baby out of the shopping cart and finding that I’d inadvertently shoplifted something when it rolled under the car seat, .
One night I realized they hadn’t charged for something at Target and because it was late and they had closed their registers for the nightTHEY WERE RUDE TO ME ABOUT PAYING FOR MY STOLEN ITEM. For real.
I won’t even lie, since I’ve been in in the wheelchair I’ll take things directly IN FRONT OF PEOPLE (like a pen with a fake flower taped to it it to keep you from stealing it) just to see if they’ll let someone in a wheelchair blatantly lift from them.
**NOTE** You can even wave the flower goodbye and they won’t say anything. SAY SOMETHING!!
This really isn’t just to brag about stealing a sweetener container that looks like Marvin the Martian.
It’s more a post to say that as long as there are people stupid enough to believe that a wheelchair makes me immune to rules I will keep taking advantage of said stupidity.
