Don't Tempt Me, Twenties


So, I'm at the Walgreens this morning by my work and there's a guy inside working on the ATM machine. He's got a nice van, possibly armored, outside in the parking lot. As I'm about to leave, I see that he's kneeling on the ground trying to fix some tray in the machine, and there are thousands of dollars in petty cash lying on the ground right in front of the exit door. Now, he's an old man, kneeling on the ground, not noticeably armed.

I don't have much of a propensity for theft, but my goodness, I've never witnessed an easier opportunity in my life.

This is why even the best of men should not be given absolute power. Thank you John Adams.
