At least he paid.

Apparently it isn't all that easy to buy technology from a baby.

Jesus, that's a way worse early termination penalty than even AT&T charges.

To buy or to make?

So the kid pockets the cash, then rats him out to his mother? What a dick!

Yes, and they're worth it. The "joke" doesn't make sense.

I "stole" an iPhone from AT&T for $2 the other day. I was sentenced to two years of their shiatty service. Remorseful.

FTA:

Customers in clothing store chased the thief, but they weren't able to catch him.

Some people were not able to chase down a 53 year old homeless drug addict? That's probably one step harder from taking an iphone away from a toddler. Probably the same amount of screaming though.

And I wonder if this guy gives a shiat now anyway. He's got 1.5 to 3 years of a warm bed and 3 meals a day now - all it'll cost is a couple days going through DTs.

Seriously, I was thinking the same thing.  Sounds to me like Crackhead Bob was just all about profit margin, know what I'm sayin'?

Did the cops even bother to interrogate that lyin' toddler ?  Did they sweat him a bit ?

"I don't give a farkin flying fark if you ARE three farkin years old, STOP STONEWALLING ME!  Where did you get the two crumpled dollar bills!!!"

/kid looks a little suspicious

The guy seems happy to get the 1-3 year prison sentence. Maybe he's a) happy to have a roof over his head and 3 meals a day for a while and b) happy to maybe get help ditching the drug habit. Who knows... That might have turned out to be the best $2 he ever spent!

/yeah, I know. He'll probably get out of jail and promptly re- offend

The two dollars is more than the Foxconn employees who built it made.

What, no hits? You guys are no fun.

OK, I'll be "that guy". Don't let toddlers play with electronics worth hundreds when a toy worth two dollars will do just fine.

Bring it on, parents of snowflakes.

They'll give him some IV drugs for the DTs. He'll be fine.

What awful parenting.

Shouldn't the kid be charged with selling property that didn't belong to him?

It's like stealing Candy Crush Saga from a baby.

can i buy a toddler for $2 with an iphone app?

Don't give anything you really want back to a three-year-old.  You suck, Kira Talley.

No, but you can shake a baby with one.
