I work at a Best Buy and people who steal stuff suck. They make our jobs so much harder and it's also morally reprehensible. Best Buy is a struggling brick and mortar business, stealing from them is like pushing over the elderly.
@18bluecat, I shed many tears for large corporations.
In all seriousness though it really does suck that people don't think about how stealing isn't just wrong, but how it's affecting those who have to deal with them. At least for some it's out of necessity- so they can put food on the table. But so many don't have to resort to that to make ends meet
@18bluecat, not to defend theft but Best Buy will also lie to you to make a $100+ which is similar☝
@18bluecat, meh, sucks if it makes the workers jobs harder but I don't care if people steal from mega chain stores. Smaller family owned businesses is something different but screw the big stores.
I used to work at walmart and people would steal thousands of dollars worth of merchandise and i would laugh because, the idiot managers didn't know how to deal with them properly and we got slaved around for minimum wage (we also stole)
@that crazy Marine, best way to deal with evil companies is to go directly to the ceos and break there kneee caps off. Like break to the point you can play street hockey with there patellas. edit ceos dont care and get off scott free look at the opiod crisis
@Wankershim, you have accepted society's norm to follow rules, I assume you also want goals set out by your society such as owning an Xbox, as well.
This thief also wanted those culturally prescribed goals but was willing to break from the norm of following rules to do so.
The law is what sets many of these norms. We know Best Buy probably paid a middleman who uses children in a sweathshop to make Xbox controllers.
Buying slave-produce is therefore a cultural norm which the law does not care about, and most of us are aware of this but choose to ignore that fact.
Buying or stealing that Xbox controller is meaningless, the whole thing was fvcked from the start.
If you want me to care for the Best Buy employee who sold slave made goods, or the larger company, over a gaming controller, then I think you're a sheep to the laws, blindly following what people taught you to care about and forget about.
Man was just clever and got past the security, that's capitalism for you
Crazy how nature do that
