Like most adults well past their own adolescence, I find it easy to become perturbed by teenagers nowadays. Sometimes they release their raging hormones in rather bizarre, maybe dangerous, even criminal ways. But other times you come across a story that lets you breathe a huge sigh of relief that all of humanity will not be lost, like the four teenagers who were "caught" on surveillance cameras paying for batteries, headphones, and sunglasses. Even though the store was closed and there was no clerk present.
The owners of Buddy's Small Lots in Wayne, New Jersey, received a call that there was a break-in at 7 p.m. Sunday night. A malfunctioning lock could have let anyone walk in and take anything they wanted.
But these teens opted to look for a clerk, wave at the cameras, and pay for everything they took. The best part is that they even included the sales tax. After leaving the money, they went to a Rite-Aid next door and told an employee what they had done.
