I was going to call it a "white steal" but didn't want to insult "the whites"

Re: I Stole From A Customer


This is why I like low voltage work for the most part it's I have 2 colours white or blue you want something else we can get it but it's an upcharge usually.

We don't have 50 different shades of blue cable for the customer to select from. Also helps when most of it is hidden behind the walls.

No. The cutout is stone, the sink is a quartz/acrylic blend.

I like what he did, its survival of the fittest. Sometimes we must resort to out of the ordinary actions. Gotta play defense sometimes. Aint nothing wrong with that.

What else was in the drawer? If it was in a drawer with a crumpled receipt from Target and a broken rubber band, you are just cleaning up garbage. If it is in a drawer with a pair of scissors and an Aim-n-Flame, it's definitely stealing.

Either way, taking it was the right move.

Seems like it'd be a lot easier just to say, "Would you mind if I took this sample? I'm always in need of more of them..."



A thief is a thief.


That would be a lie. Not sure that's better.
