When I was a punk kid about 11 years old, on a dare I threw one of those little round smoke bombs into an old car in an alley. Got caught lol. Cops, the whole deal. The guy said if I cleaned his car out, he wouldn't press charges. Turned out he was a preacher and sat in the 90 degree heat with me while I scrubbed his interior with soapy water. About 2 hours. I actually learned a lot about other people's property and respect that day. Not because I got caught, but because we had a good conversation and he told me how hard he worked to pay for that car. Changed my view forever. And of course when my dad got home from work that also changed my view. I got to see everything from a standing position for a couple days because he wore me out with a belt and made me scrub HIS truck out as another reminder of what things cost and how hard people have to work for things. My friends all ran lol. Learned lots of lessons that day!
