There was a news article that quickly went viral yesterday that I just can’t quite let go. After hearing Ryan Seacrest talk about it as we listened to the radio on the way to school, it was only a few short hours later when I heard an elderly gentleman talking about it with the guy packing the groceries in my local supermarket.
I am talking about the news story of the day (a quiet day in LA) of the rising crime wave in the theft of Tide washing detergent. Yes, you heard right. Apparently there has been a spate of thefts across a multitude of supermarkets with Tide reaching phenomenal prices on the black market. Well, first of all, it’s only about $12 at the store so I can’t imagine how this could be affected by selling it “hot”. Um, also, how the fudge stain does someone hide a huge bottle of Tide in their jacket pocket? Even Lindsay and Winona would have trouble getting away with that one. And who are the police looking out for? Criminals with really clean stain free clothes?
