Thursday Thievery

Stealing - to take something unlawfully: to take something that belongs to somebody else, illegally or without the owner's permission.

I think most people would agree with the above definition of what it means to steal. For those who do not, well you probably fall in the same mind set as the person who stole my Droid razor max phone yesterday. As you can imagine I am pretty upset. Yes, it is just a phone that can be replaced, but the feeling of my privacy being violated by a stranger, looking through all my photos etc.. just unsettling!
My story is as followed, rented a movie at Red box, left phone on top to get credit card, for got phone was there, left. Person was waiting behind me. Returned  an hour later after realizing I lost it, phone not there. Chances that the person behind me took it are high. Yes, it was my fault I was forget full, careless even, but that does not mean it is okay to keep my phone. What boggles my mind even more is that the phone is practically useless. I called Verizon and now it is turned off and is tagged to not be allowed to be turned on in the future. So, unless the person is a tech savvy genius, the phone is nothing more than a camera to them.

So, this has been my rant for the day. I hope anyone reading this will be better than the person who took my phone. Remember it's called being  a good person, karma even. Also please download a tracking program in your phone. I didn't and now I wish I had!

On the school front we have been working on learning Synonyms!

A synonym is a word or expression that has nearly the same meaning as another word or expression.

Check out these Synonym games to help you with the task of homeschooling. I know my kids Love it when I use games to teach ;)

Until next time....
