Piece of work...

A 44 year old breaking into cars.....wouldn't working at McDonalds be more lucrative? I mean come on.....you steal a CD player, some music, some spare change then you sell the stuff and you are not going to get much out of it. It seems a minimum wage job would be easier to do, you get paid and don't have to worry about getting locked up. But then again some folks love the thrill of taking something they didn't work for I guess.
