High School graduation trip to Hawaii stoned off my ass and drunk as a skunk, drinking age 18 before Ronnie Raygun Fd it all up (Major Demonrat back then). Walked out of a store with a straw cowboy hat on my head in downtown Honolulu. Then proceeded to get into a fight with a pimp smacking his wahine around. My buddies dragged me away before the gendarmes showed up.


Maybe we're all happy.

20ish years ago I took a little girl's pink bicycle outside of the corner club in Moscow, Idaho. It had matching pink tassels.

I rode it home drunk off my ass.

Felt bad the next day and rode it back.The only reason I remembered where I got it from was because it was always out in front of the house across the ally from that bar.

I stole everything that weren't nailed down.

Then I stole the hammer.

About 9 years old, stole a slug of whiskey from the old man's bottle. I had enough sense to spit it in the sink; though I damn near returned it to the bottle. Funny how tastes change.

Wheels from prams (baby carriages) were a hot commodity when I was a kid in urban England. We used em to make simple steerable wooden carts (IIRC we called em trolleys).

Besides entertainment, these carts could be used to generate income at the local train station on Saturdays. We would line up with the other kids like taxis along the outside wall and offer people help getting their luggage to their hotels (lots of stuff was walking distance back then). “Carry yer bags Mister?” we would say to passers by.

A good haul for a day’s work was about ten bob (ten shillings), a small fortune for a kid when a typical weekly allowance was a half crown coin (AKA two and six) with a value of two shillings and sixpence, said coinage first issued in 1547.

I would guess ten shillings might have been about equal to one dollar in the 1960’s.

We would usually spend the money on Airfix models of WWII aircraft and gum. In particular there was a really cool civil war bubble gum card series featuring battle scenes (I remember bayonets and abatis, dunno how realistic that was).

So anyways, when taking a short cut down a back alley walking home from school I came across a set of old pram wheels still attached to the frame some kid had left out.

I stole them, felt bad about it then, still do.

When we were in high school we used to siphon gas out of the cars at a car dealership. My buddy's step dad owned the place and was a real azzhole so we justified it.

1971, I was 12 years old. Stole a couple fishing lures at a dept. store with a few other kids and got caught. Will never take anything not mine till I die since then. Twenty five years later, while working a gov. job they brought me in for questioning over it, because I did not disclose it. It still came up on a background check on me.

Did you hook us all up with a Great Society vote for Johnson?

About 20 years ago, I bought four stackable indoor chairs for our basement in the Denver area. They were all in one box. I think they were around $30/each. I signed the CC receipt without looking at the amount. When I got home, I noticed the receipt was for around $30. I guess they scanned the bar code on the box, which was only for one chair. I didn't drive the 10 miles back to the store and pay them the rest. Is that "stealing"?

Far be it from me to interfere when anyone denigrated Paddler for any reason.

But U of I is a school of Agriculture and engineering. Idaho never had a Med School or Vet School. My College mates all had to apply out of state for such degrees.

But old Paddler might have been interning at one of the pregrad vet science research centers. I understand some of them even kept a herd of attractive sheep at hand.

As to the OP. I snuck a fondle of Momma's butt as she cooked dinner last night. Then I stole a bit of chicken from the plate before she served it. Both reprehensible acts for which I feel no remorse. Damned Deplorable.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

A couple days after Thanksgiving at the local Vato Zone I bought some brake cleaner, light bulbs and a quart of oil. I gathered it all up along with a an oil filter for a Honda that I guess was on the counter. I looked at my receipt and didn't get charged for it. I don't even own a Honda.
