In Soviet Maine, egg rolls YOU.

For fark's sake, it was an EGG ROLL! Don't want people stealing them, make the line move faster.

Yeah. When places have shiatty service we should steal from them. That's the only way they'll learn.

When your sole market is 18-22 year olds, you should be prepared for that sort of thing. And I'm sure you in your entire life have never ever once dared to break any law whatsoever.

You market to small children, you'd better prepare for lots of messes, broken stuff, and screaming parents because Little Snowflake {insert meaningless outrage here}. You market to 18-22 year old college students who live on campus (and therefore are strapped for cash once they max out their $500 credit limit card they signed up for at the student union), you'd better plan for product shortages.

No one -- not even the kid -- is saying what he did was right. But you try getting a job with a conviction or no contest plea for any form of theft. All over something that cost the school a quarter tops (and I highly doubt their eggrolls are that high of quality).

He stole something that he thought he would get away with but didn't.

And now future employers will know and this is unfair why?

So give him some kind of option- it doesn't go on his record if he spend 40 hours doing something that benefits the University.

Keep rationalising. Stealing is wrong, even though you have no morals, no character, and no integrity.

I wasn't implying that he should have confronted the student. I called the guy a loser for ratting on a kid for "stealing" an egg roll. It's not like he shoplifted a bar of gold. Maybe he's poor and hungry, maybe he just forgot to pay for it. Doesn't this employee have better things to do?
 
2010-01-12 07:39:09 AM
I can be okay with imposing university sanctions on him but not criminal. It would be much better for him in the long run if they suspended him or kicked him out rather than letting him keep going to school but face a criminal record. Stealing is not stealing though. There is a difference between shoplifting a candy bar, and stealing 50,000 through coercion or subterfuge. All that aside the likely hood this kid will get a good job anyways with his college "degree" and that said job will do a background check are both likely non existent.

So the kid who stole was 'hungry' and the employee doing his job is a loser.

I don't steal. The girl at the 7-11 had to force me to take a bunch of extra packets of salt to keep at my desk at work because I only took enough for my lunch.

I also don't agree with throwing the book at first-time offenders who haven't done anything remotely serious as a deterrent.

I was arrested for "possession of alcohol" one week after my 18th birthday.

In court the judge said "I don't want this following you around the rest of your life. Case dismissed."

Now twenty years later, I'm like "Duuude! Way to be!"

Hunger is nature's way of telling you to get off your ass and provide for yourself.

From your own profile:
•You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
•And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

With which I could not agree more.

So because he may have stolen something in his past means he can't point out that stealing because of bad service is wrong?

That's just stupid.

Since when is a misdemeaner charge "throwing the book at him". He committed exactly the crime he was charged with and admits it.

I can't believe the rationalizing in this thread. He is an asshat for taking what didn't belong to him. Now he is a d*ck for being outraged about being caught and charged.

Simple fix a-hole: Don't take what you didn't pay for.

Alright look, joker. Each day, thousands of other students at his school have to put up with buying meal credits and waiting in line in crappy college cafeterias, and they learn to do it patiently no matter what crap of the day they feel. If some cheeze ball saunters over to a buffet and scoops up an eggroll, that would tick me off as a fellow student too. Does that kid think he's better than us? Like he's too special to pay for that $3.88 eggroll like I just had to farking do?

Had I known that would have gotten him a criminal record, I wouldn't report it. But I definitely would have beaten his ass for it if I was having a grumpy morning and didn't want to see another jargoff have his fun.

You hear me? I consider swiping an egg roll similar to "cutting-in-line" at the cafeteria, meaning that it's far worse and more insulting than a low-grade college prank, which at least tend to be victimless.

Anyway I say give him what he asks: A huge fine, and maybe a warning of jail time for repeat offense.

I hope he didn't burn himself. Knowing from personal experience, having burns on your peep is not fun.

At least he didn't take too many napkins and get arrested for that!

This is the same type of guy that will knock some girl up and then argue to the judge that it's unfair he has to pay child support.

Maybe. On the other hand - If I had to pay my whole life for all the stupid things I did as a youngster - I shudder to think.

There are grey areas here. He's willing to pay - let him learn his lesson and move on.

Hmm. Call it 50 cents an eggroll, that means pilferage of the equivalent of 134,000 eggrolls a year. Or other such small items.

That's about 375 items per day, every day, (assuming they are open every day of the year), eaten while standing in line in full view of everybody.

I'm thinking either the university is inflating it's numbers, or their main pilferage is being done by staff, and blamed on the students.

Chill out mate. Ok, so it's not throwing the book at him, but it has the potential to follow him and inhibit him for the rest of his life. Seems a little extreme for taking a cheap piece of food. A car I can understand, but an eggroll?

Can you honestly claim that you don't have media you haven't paid for, whether it be movies, music, porn etc? Because if you do then in theory you would have no problem getting a criminal record for taking something you didn't pay for, right?

You're forgetting organized theft. There is a lot more organized theft going on during off hours, such as stealing boxes of food by student workers. I know from living in a college town there is a ton of organized theft going on because the university keeps everything pretty much open to the public even during breaks. We lost 67 computers from labs here. So he 67k a year seems plausible for purdue (which has 40,000) students. If its at a much smaller school I would argue that the numbers are either inflated or to include other non food items but belonging to the cafeteria in general. ie chairs, utensils, and equipment.

Agreed, but Student workers are still staff. Perhaps they could cut back on that 67,000 by, I don't know, locking things up?

The majority of shrink in any retail store can be linked to management and the employees.

Used to work for a convenience store chain. The number one shrink item was smokes. We did a survey - 77% of managers smoked and roughly 92% of all workers smoked.

Go figure.

Well duh. Most places of employment look down on employee theft and given the choice between someone who is not going to steal from them and someone who is the choice should be obvious.
