Lazy Minds

The Beautiful Bride and I wandered into Dillards last night, looking for some new clothes for me. Never a fun thing to do really.

I strolled into the men’s department and overheard two Dillards employees talking about how a shoplifter had been arrested just a few minutes earlier…

One of the employees, who I soon learned was "Peter from Nigeria" was especially upset…

"They are just lazy…those thiefs…they have lazy minds…"

As I spent a little more time with Peter, I learned that he had been in the US for 15 years, had a full-time job as a systems administartor for HCA, and was working a few hours a week at Dillards to "fill the gas tank."

I can see why Peter was so outraged by the shoplifter. Peter had come to this new country looking for opoportuity, was now working a second job to make ends meet, and he saw some "lazy minded" knuckleheads try to steal some over-priced clothes.

Because of Peter and his take on life, shopping was (just a bit) more fun last night.
