I am poor. I will finally be graduating college later this month. I was a full-time student, worked up to 30 hours a week in work-study, worked up to 40 hours a week on the night shift at a pharmacy, and worked various other jobs throughout college. I was a full-time student involved with leadership activities. It was not easy by any means. It was difficult. I wanted to give up on many occasions. I never stole anything. If I couldn't afford something, I didn't buy it. There was a time when I didn't have a place to live. I squatted. Yet, every day I am AMAZED at the people who steal. Girls at my school who came from wealthy families would steal just to steal. They'd steal so they could save up for tattoos or road trips. They had parents paying the rent, scholarships, etc. yet they stole. Not to mention that I found out MANY of them were lying on their financial aid forms. When they had divorced parents, they would say they didn't know their father/father's information- so the financial aid was done based only on their father's information (even though they would recieve money and other assistance from their fathers!!) The point of this post isn't to cause arguments or anything. I'm just curious to see if other people see this happening as well, and what everyone's opinons on this are. I don't think that fraud or theft should be considered "poor skills"- but am I in the minority here?
