i was in a hardware store recently, looking for two screws to put up a shelf.  walking through the store, i found a few more items that i needed and then headed to the nail and screw aisle.

i caught myself preparing to open a small package of screws and was prepared to put the two i needed in my pocket and walk-out.  after all, i only needed the two and there were no containers of lose nails to purchase from.  how much would two screws put them out?

in the end, i pulled myself from the brink of crossing the shoplifting line and bought a small package for $3.00 – which has way more screws that i need!

another day of walking that thin line between upstanding citizen and amature shoplifter.
