According to research in The UK upwards of nearly 3/4 of the population are micro-criminals i.e. engage in decitful general small scale activity which is technically criminal. Now given that this is Ireland and our well know propensity to ignore rules we don't like, my question is not are you a micro-criminal but what micro-criminality, do you engage in?
I will start the ball rolling -
1 I'm a cyclist, so that more or less speaks for itself on this topic!
2 When using the self service checkout, more accurately, when forced to do so, as I always try to engage with a shop assistant to preserve jobs and for the human interaction, at a well known store, I often take a recent receiot which has been previously spat out, with no point card used on it and I later often claim those points for the store card!
I give all those concerned citizens who fought for their own and their fellow citizens right not to have to pay for water for about a fifth time a free pass on any notions of micro-criminality in that regard as it was their civic duty to fight quangos, ass hole politicians etc!
I don't honestly think a society like opurs has much to worry about from mircro-criminals, but what really freaks me, is the free passes that very serious criminals seem to get as a matter of course, in particular when the great and the good go rogue!
