Yesterday I attended a charity “Girl Scout Golf Classic” and bid several times on 4 “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” musical tickets, something Kyle would have loved. Well, the Grinch did steal the tickets, I’ll tell you that. I placed my final bid just as “30 seconds left” was announced and then waited to see that the bid would be the winner. About 30 seconds after the end was called, a guy came over and tried to place a bid. I intervened and said, “the bidding’s closed.” He gave me a dirty look and walked toward the dining room of the William J. Devine Golf Course in Dorchester. As the sheets were being collected, I went to the dining room. Somehow, the cheater got back to the sheet and submitted his late, cheating bid. When his name was announced, he was hiding in the shadows…

What is wrong with people like this?

“Give me that! Don’t you know you’re not supposed to take things that don’t belong to you? What’s the matter with you, you some kind of wild animal?”
