…Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200

Picture this.

You’re a thief. You want some cash. You cast your mind about your neighborhood to find a likely source of ready moolah.

You settle on the corner muffler shop. Because everyone knows a muffler shop keeps more cash on hand then say, the liquor store, or AM/PM.

So, at 8am, right after opening time, you stroll in to the corner muffler shop. The employees are really impressed with your cool gun. However, no matter how nicely you ask, they won’t open the safe. They can’t, because only the manager has the combo. Like all good managers, the main muffler man hasn’t bothered to show up yet.

Because you are a creative problem-solver (hey, you figured out an easy way to get cash, didn’t you?), you apply your brain to this conundrum.

You could walk away and get a job.

You could go try AM/PM.

Or, you could leave your cell phone number with the employees and go home and get some breakfast. If you say “please” and “thank you”, they will surely call you when the manager arrives.

Yeah, that’ll work!

I sincerely hope that you look good in orange.
