yep, the WoO's transgression, knowingly doing it, is definitely worse. Sorry. Bribing the security guy made it worse.

Quite frankly, I believe that when ANY bar provides a beverage in a glass with their name on it, it is designed to be a souvenir.

In fact, before you leave, many such establishments will exchange your glass for a clean dry glass.

What the Wiz should have done is to go to the bar and ask and/or offer to pay for it there. While the staff probably would have said to keep it even if it wasn't a designated souvenir, at least there, any money paid would have at least been a lot more likely to land in the right place.

By the way, why is the Wiz concerned with the level of sin for his transgretion?

If he's gonna get on the express elevator going down, it's not for stealing a bar glass, but for attempting to purchase a soul!

I'm surprised they weren't for sale at the gift shop.

Of course if they were, then the Wizard sinned even more badly....

Or maybe it was a matter of Saks 5th Ave./Bloomingdale's cookie recipe? An urban legend tells of a person, often an elderly woman, asking for the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies served at a department store's restaurant/snack bar/cafeteria in a big city. She's given the printed recipe, then later in the month she finds a charge for it on her credit card bill for an outrageous sum ($2,500 if memory serves).

Maybe the Frontier let you have the mug, but charged you sureptitiously for it?

The urban legend in question is pure bunk, naturally.

Oh, yeah!

How about winning one in a bet? How about losing one in a bet?

I'm the kind who would give back the money and the coupon. I'm probably going to hell anyway, but I like hot weather and fun people, so no biggie.

My oldest son put a Get Out of Jail Free card from a Monopoly set in his wallet. I told him not to be a smartass and use it if he got pulled over. And I told him not to do anything to get pulled over in the first place. He's a good kid, but a joker like his mom.
Each of us is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts. Preparing for a fight about your bad decision is not as smart as making a good decision.

I don't feel guilty about buying or winning souls in a bet because they were consensual transactions made between mature adults. However, to take something that doesn't belong to you is just not cool, and I deserve to be punished for that.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I am sure a dominatrix out of Las Vegas yellow pages can accommodate you. LOL

I put that in and got lots of suggestions, but none specifically for a dominatrix.

Now we can add soliciting to your rap sheet.

Dang, I'll never get out of the hole now. How can I apply the Martingale to this situation?
