Last week an Air Force couple was arrested for shoplifting and their 2 year old daughter placed in Child Services for about 18 hours. the condensed version of the story goes like this:
Safeway security called the cops, stopped the couple and the Hawaii Police Department arrested the couple, placed the 2 year old in child services and then released the couple on $50 bail. Damn, those were some expensive sandwiches. There are so many levels to this story that it is hard to pick an area to dissect.
These two parents are idiots for two reasons.
- Who gets lost any more? Most phones have GPS or an internet function to check Google maps.
- I don't buy the statement that they "forgot" to put the wrappers through the scanner.
To add insult to injury, the ass hat store manager banned the couple from shopping at the store for a year.
Lesson learned: Pay for your food. McDonald's doesn't let me eat my burger while I stroll to the bathroom and then come back to pay.
