Default What has america come to..

Well if you guys didn't know, i am a high school senior. Well in gym class, i leave my school cloths in the locker room, which gets locked after everyone is changed. After class got over i went back and changed back into my school cloths. When i sat down to put my boots on, i felt my wallet was in my left pocket, not my right like always. So i pull out my wallet, and come to find out someone stole $20.00 out of it. This same thing happened to a friend of mine on friday, who also got $20.00 stolen. And a week before that , another friend got $15.00 stolen. So thats $55.00 stolen from just me and my friends, all of which are in different gym classes.

When i went to speak to the gym teacher, all he told me was that the door is broken, and theres nothing they can do to fix it.

Is america really that scummy? I work a part time job, which is barely enough hours a week to fill my 30+ gallon gas tank.. Just thought i'd start a little rant.

I know your guys top comment will be something like "beat his ass" and i wish i could, but i dont know who it was, and since it was a locker room, theres no camera.

Put a lock on your locker during gym. I lived in a hillbilly town, you never left your shit unlocked, not necessarily for theft, but because people would fukc with it

Theft was an occurrence though...

Sounds like something Kenny Powers would do.

I had $40 and a watch stolen from my gym locker like 10 years ago, My brother had his money and CD player stolen from his gym locker about 5 years before that, so it's nothing new. Both our lockers had padlocks on them too.

To answer your question, yes, that is what America has come to. Why would anyone want to work for anything when it can be handed to them, or they can just take it.

What you wanna do is, take everything of value out of your wallet. Print out the nastiest picture you can find, I mean real nasty. Fold it up and put a $1 bill around it. When it's time for gym, leave the wallet out where it can be easily found. Wait for scream. Then confront thief.

Leave wallet locked in normal school locker? Not like you need it all day anyway, and that shit fucks with your back to sit on anyway.

I remember the very last day I ever changed for gym class. I had a $300 rope style gold necklace my dad gave me. They made us take all jewelry off. The day it was not in my locker, was the last day I changed. I turned in the school issued padlock. The teacher was nice enough to open the lockers underneath mine to see if maybe it fell through the seam between the two lockers, but it wasn't there.

They tried to punish me for not participating, simply because I wouldn't change, but that didn't fly so well with the principal. It was a good ole' time.

well the class is run by a 50 year old women who cant go in the gyms locker room. Between the freshman and varsity locker room, theres a coachs office where the weight training teacher sits during my gym class. That teacher is the nicest guy you'd ever meet, so def. not
