Melanie’s running with a crime theme this week. Fair warning: this might be an incredibly boring post.

Have you ever “dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

Nope. In all honesty I never even knew this was a thing until I saw it on an episode of Glee because seriously, who runs out on their bill? You ate it, you pay for it, period.

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

When I was really young I bumped someone’s car at a stop sign. The whole thing’s kind of fuzzy – where, when, was it coming off the interstate or on a side street – but I do remember sheer panic. I was late for something, maybe work, and I had absolutely no idea what someone should do when they drive into the back of somebody’s car. A very kind middle aged man stepped out of the driver’s side, came around back to look at his bumper, and told my nearly hysterical self not to worry about it since there wasn’t any damage. (“Bump” really did mean bump.)

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)  Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers? Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?

This has never happened in real life for me. I imagine I’d hand it in if we were someplace defined, like a lobby or office. Not sure what I’d do if I found it on the street…maybe hand it to the next person who looked like they could use an unexpected turn of luck.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted? If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂

A candy bar. Turns out a guilty conscience can ruin even chocolate.
