Need That Solar Light
Alcohol messes with our inhibitions. Things that seem like good ideas when we’re drunk usually aren’t good ideas at all. This especially holds true when we’re in our twenties. Stealing things while drunk is a pretty common occurrence and something that happens more often than not. Most of us are probably guilty of stealing an object or two while drunk. This internet user admits he tried to steal a solar light from a neighbor’s yard when he was out drinking.
As he was trying to steal the light, he fell off of the concrete slat and onto the ground. At first, it felt like he hurt his funny bone, but after a week of pain, he finally went to the doctor and discovered he’d broken his elbow. Insurance covered $23,000 worth of surgery, of which he only had to pay $1,000. He’s much older now, and it wasn’t until recently that his wife made him throw away the light (via The Brainy Penny).
