How quickly things can change. I remember when I was little and me and my brother got caught stealing at a store close to our house. The police got called and they handcuffed us (mostly to scare us) and the store owner knew where we lived and who our parents were. So my dad showed up, took us home, proceeded to whip our asses, then made me (my brother is half so he lived with his mom he was just visiting) write an apology to the store owner, work there with no pay and wash the owner's car every day for a month. It was summer so my summer break was shot. I never stole again.
The sad part is I'm 26 and this was 16 years ago. How quickly things change huh???
