[Hey, You!] It Was for the Children, Asshole!

Matt Bors

I was working a booth at SevenStock. It was the JDRF booth, so all the money goes to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. You could call that a good cause. There was a book that you wanted. It cost $20. I watched you take the book and walk away. When you stole that book, you actually stole from the children who would have received that contribution. You could call that an incredibly slimy, mean-spirited and even criminal thing to do. But don’t worry. So that the kids wouldn’t go without, I put the money in to cover the price of the book. I’m a single mom who volunteered her time to work the booth, and then had to cover for your thieving ass. If you read this, you know who you are and where to send a much more generous contribution.
