April Fool’s Day joke: get your life together, pay your bills.

We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.
Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious.
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.
Holy crap, is there like an unspoken thieves code or something?!
it’s a thing. I won’t even lie. I watched someone slip a nursing exam book in their bag at the store I worked at. She made eye contact with me and the blood drained from her face. I simply gave her a sympathetic nod and walked away.
I live in a small town and I knew she was a waitress at a hotel my sister works at, and people at that hotel don’t tip well during off season. Nursing exam books are 50+ bucks. Being a med student myself, I didn’t even breathe a word, and when inventory came up later and the book was missing, I suggested it was likely a mislabel, and the manager wrote it off.
Sometimes, thievery is a necessity. Don’t send people to jail over petty shit.
My current clothing style is a combination of “shit I’m late”, “shit it’s cold”, with just a hint of “I’m too lazy to look socially acceptable for you losers”.
My views on eating meat.
- Massive slaughterhouses and the meat industry are fucked up and they torture animals
- Eating meat produced by this industry contributes to environmental destruction. Forests must be cut down to make graze lands to feed our demanding taste buds.
- If you go out and kill an animal and use its parts for multiple uses, I dont really see a problem as long as you didnt torture the animal and you arent affecting a dwindling population.
- Humans are animals
- Would you rather have an animal’s entire habitat cut down in order to make a coat factory or would you rather kill one deer and make a coat?
Maybe some of this is fucked up. I dont know. Down to hear responses and alternate viewpoints. This are by no means concrete laws that guide my life, they are a list of ever changing view points that allow me to grow and change as a person.
I think its probably a good thing 1/5 of your “views” is a question.
Personally I dont hunt but I dont think I have can identify a theoretical problem, necessarily right off the bat at least, with hunting that is 1) conservationist in practice and 2) need-based. I dont think about it much because we dont live in a world where most meat comes from hunting. bigger fish and whatnot. I don’t think i could hunt myself. But some people can. I think if a person could kill an animal themself, rather than outsourcing to giant factory farms so they can unthinkingly eat animals at every meal, I would feel so much less disdain towards it. If even any. At least hunting is a choice. You are resolved in your decision and taking responsibility for it. Paying a couple bucks for chicken on a chipotle burrito is the opposite of that.
