It will all come back to you in the end. Basic story, but you will get the idea.

Several years ago I saw the same teller at the bank when I went to cash my check every week. Nice girl, always friendly. Well one week I knew I wasn't going home much of my check after I paid all of the bills. When I counted my money after her, I had $20 extra. I was already in my car and ready to leave the bank when I discovered it. I took that $20 back in and told her that she had miscounted. She looked at me like I was crazy for bringing it back and said thanks. I knew that she would have ended up in trouble over it and at that point $20 was a lot for the next week, but I knew it was wrong. On the way home, I stopped to pay the light bill. I didn't take my bill with me because I was sure I knew how much the bill was. Turned out, the bill was exactly $20 LESS than what I thought. So I still had the money, and no one got in trouble over it.

Doing the right thing is the only way!

unless you want your stuff ripped off dont buy the stuff! If you buy it you create the market!
If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

Nothing gives me greater satisfaction then seeing a Postal Worker taken out in hand cuffs by the inspectors for stealing. Makes me feel great inside knowing they caught a scum ball. Whats even better is they usualy try to come and get the person at times right off the work floor in front of his co - workers

I parked at the fair several years ago under a light, and with mounted sheriff's patrol in the parking lot. I went back to my truck to go home, and the ****ing seats were gone They did not touch 2 pair of Oakleys, checkbook, credit cards, stereo, cd's or a toolbox full of tools. WTF, it still pisses me off to this day that some POS stole my seats. That took a set of balls to do that in the middle of a crowded parking lot. It took an act of congress to get those things in there, I don't see how they got them out in a confined space. It seems like somebody had to have wondered what was going on! Sorry for the rant.

No, I would not buy stolen equipment.

Your a good kid. You knew the answer before you asked the question. That's your gut. Never, ever go against your gut.

Every decision you make will have two aspects. Benefit and consequences. If talk to your gut and the consequences is worth the benefit, then you do it. If not, you don't.

If you go against your gut and it goes the other way. You will never forgive yourself. There is no worst feeling in the world then, " Damn it, I knew I shouldn't have done that.

There is not much lower in the world then a thief. That person makes a living taking somebody else's living.

The business I'm in. Custom plastic injection molding. We are a three shift, around the clock operation. You would be amazed at the **** that walks out of here.

Not only production parts. That are a customers product, but everything from, tools, parts, motors, oil, all the way down to toilet paper. It is a sad day when you have to lock up toilet paper.

We have had a snowblower taken out of here. We have had aluminum molds that were a 10,000 $ cost to the costumer. Taken out in the middle of the night and scraped for the aluminum. The scrap price was 200 $ .

They take ****, they have no idea what it is, just because it's sitting there.

We were making some house ware products one time. Towel bars, paper towel holders, soap dishes and what not. We noticed we were short every week a little bit.

Instead of calling the cops, which would have alerted the thieves. We came in and would sit on the roof at shift change. Sure as ****, we saw a couple of old ladies taking a few every night.

What were they doing with them ? They were having a garage sale every Saturday. With our parts that we were paying them to make.

Needless to say, we happen to be in the neighborhood that Saturday with a police escort and pressed charged to the fullest.

I'm sorry I was long winded, but thieves f**king really get me.

You did the right thing. Just say you'll pass. No need to rat them out. Sooner or later, they will get theirs. Nobody retires after 45 years from that profession.

Over & Out,

Wow, I'm glad I got that off my chest.
