Stealing From A McDonald’s? Come On Now, People!

We recently decided to make a quick dinner stop at McDonald’s, in between haircuts for Little Boy Beagle and me and some grocery shopping.  The three of us stopped in, placed our order (using a buy one sandwich get one free coupon, of course), and settled in.

The McDonald’s had recently been re-done and, much to the delight of Little Boy Beagle, was themed with sports memorabilia all across the walls.  He gleefully pointed out ‘hockey’ to the mural of the Detroit Red Wings, and turned around to point at a display of baseballs in a case.

That’s when I looked around and saw that some slug had actually stolen some of the decorations.  There were various items, and I noticed a plaque that said ‘Ty Cobb’ that had three empty slots.  One slot looked like it had a 5×7 picture, and two smaller sizes most likely fit baseball cards.

And the three slots were empty.

I’m sure that the stuff that went in there was mass produced, so I can guarantee that there was no value to any of it.

Yet somebody actually cut the plastic holders open and lifted the stuff.

I pointed it out to my wife and both of us just shook our heads and, almost at the same time, looked at Little Boy Beagle, saddened that there are people out there who think that taking stuff from a McDonald’s wall is OK, and that someday he’ll have to interact with people like that.

Amazing, isn’t it?

  1. "I pointed it out to my wife and both of us just shook our heads and, almost at the same time, looked at Little Boy Beagle, saddened that there are people out there who think that taking stuff from a McDonald's wall is OK, and that someday he'll have to interact with people like that."

    Yes he will have to interact with people like that and people who are equally dishonest but not looked down upon.

    I'm talking about people who would never consider shoplifting or robbing a bank, but think it's OK to make "rich people" pay more.
    There are also people who think banks are evil, but they have no problem using bank credit cards to buy things they don't have the money for. Then they whine about having to pay interest.
    Almost half of the people don't pay any federal taxes due to income/deductions and they have no problem with that, but some of them complain about some corporations paying little or no taxes in some years. Corporations can have bad years and can take deductions too.
    T. Boone Pickens bought lands in Texas that would allow him to transport water hundreds of miles to sell it. Some people call him greedy because they want the water and somebody else to make the investments, but they don't want to pay for it.

    It's dishonest to force other people to pay for what you want. That's theft. Some people have no problem with that because they voted politicians in to do their dirty works for them.

  2. I can imagine a parent doing this in front of their children or a child doing it in front of their parents! Either way it is wrong and demonstrates questionable values at best. People are not born thieves, they learn it somewhere.

  3. Don't know why someone would want to still from McDonalds anyway, just does not make any sense to me.
