Is "lifting with visual disabilities" an absurd contradiction in terms?

Submitted by noordinaryspider in Shoplifting

I cannot recognize a black blob that is actually a smartphone taking a video of me without my knowledge or permission.

I don't shoplift because I don't want to want shit, not because I don't hate the assholes who want me to want shit more than they want me to want to live.

There are other reasons why I don't shoplift.

Is it hopeless if I become homeless within the next month? Would I be better off if I just killed myself?

I was homeless for 3 months at one time. Lived in my vehicle while I worked and saved for a place. It sucked. I learned a lot on Google on how to survive and started boosting for extra cash. In my opinion, suicide isn't going to solve anything. I don't know all of your circumstances though. Just saying it's possible to come out on top.

I don't want to come out on top. I want to burn down walmarts and I can't do that either.

I'd settle for surviving if I could come up with one valid reason why my life is worth a fucking dime.

You've made it this far, might as well see it to the end. When I feel like that, my biggest motivator isn't my loved ones or things I want to accomplish. It's spite. Plain, unrefined spite for everyone who's ever wanted to see me dead. Spite kept Rockefeller alive through a ton of stolen hearts to keep kicking the poor, expropriate that and use it against them. Your life doesn't have to be worth shit, nobody's life is worth anything but the honor they cultivate, and honor still won't stop a bullet or a spear when the time comes. Just live it because you've got it, and because Hel is a fucking boring place to be.

Besides, I'd be pretty upset if I heard you bit it.

Trayvon is actually a beautiful name and I never even thought about how his parents must have felt when they watched it turned into the most horrific verb in the entire English language.

My own kid was Christophered. I don't know what that means.

It means his thread ran out. It's not fair or right, and not everyone gets a skein of the same length. You did the best that you could, and that's all anyone could expect of you. Trayvon's parents did too. Sometimes it's just not enough. I wasn't able to do enough to save any of the people I lost. I just hope I live long enough to make them proud of me.

dude. just get out and shoplift. ive done it while high on dilaudid and that severely decreases your visual capabilities. If you can recognize a camera, or a person, then you can shoplift. go to walmart after 11. theres no lp in just about every store

Update: Thank you. The backstory is in "homeless" here: https://raddle.me/f/homeless/42914/discarded-by-entire-family

The best help I've gotten has been on this shoplifting thread, though. That doesn't make any sense but it's still true.

The best I can figure is that yesterday was my mother's birthday so bla bla bla if I tore my own heart to shreds to try to tell you the truth I'm just going to look crazier and crazier so I think I'd rather just talk about movies or gaming or something and say....welll.....

Thanks for saving my life. It didn't do a damned bit of good and nothing you could ever do would change anything that even remotely matters, but thanks anyway.

'kay?

See you in some holding cell somewhere or something unless you're an AFAB on your period and I hand you a box of tampons for no good reason or something.
