We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

This Just Cracks Me Up, Thanks Rockonbyaudi

"ONLY IN TEXAS (by mirleyt3196409s link)

A seagull in Galveston , TX has developed the habit of stealing Doritos from a neighbourhood convenience store. The seagull waits until the Manager isn't looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds..

The seagull's shoplifting started early last summer when he first swooped into the store in Galveston , and helped himself to a bag of Doritos. Since then, he's become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

The Manager thinks it's great because people are coming to watch the feathered thief make the daily grab and run, and that's good for business, and especially since customers have begun paying for the seagull's stolen bags of Doritos because they think it's so funny.

However, the Manager did say, "This is Texas , and if that seagull starts to grab a 6-pack of beer to go along with the Doritos, I may have to put a stop to it.""

What makes me laugh about this?  Each night after all the stories on homocides and such; there is a blurb or two about beer theft.  Seems Texas has more than its fair share of thieving idiots; who fail to realize they are almost always caught on video tape.

Plus gulls have a way with becoming unafraid of people, we found that out our last beach vacation to Rock Port.  The brazen hussies would chase anyone with what they thought was food.  Poor fishermen, LOL!

Like they said, only in Texas.............

I used to work in a convenience store, and I had my share of beer theives. One of the guys I worked with even got shot in the back of the head (he lived). I'll take a seagull Dorito thief any day.

I just don't understand folks and their actions any more? What happened to personal responsibility and being humane? I just turn on the local news anymore for DEAD WRONG DALE NELSON's weather report.

I am glad your co-wroker lived. Hell, that is just a sorry way to live in fear of going to work.

I too would take a gull dorito thief. At least he ain't packing iron.

I want to know if he will teach the other birds.
