I walk the quick walk to my botany class and as I am approaching the door something catches the corner of my eye. I look to see what came up on me so fast and it's a girl looking me in the eye and asking me to take out my headphone. I take it out and ask oh hey whats up? She says "Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?" I obviously say yes I mind I have a botany final right through that door. Then she asks if I knew why she stopped me. I paused probably looked confused as fuck as I have never seen this nerdy bitch in my life and I say "no I have no idea what you want"
To which she replies. "You just stole a pencil from the school bookstore. That's theft no matter how small the item. I need to see your student ID."
I was obviously flabbergasted and immediately asked her "What were the pencils not free? I just assumed they were free I only have a dollar bill can I give you a dollar and get to my final?"
She said "No, you stole it, you can't pay for it now, can i see your ID?" Still open mouthed, but with time ticking until my final begins I say sure (assuming she was going to take down my name and send me an email in 3 weeks setting up some judiciary meeting that will obviously be thrown out because it's over a wooden pencil)
I hand her my ID and she says "Okay after your final you can come get this from me at customer service." To which I replied something along the lines of "Fuck you give me my god damn ID back what the fuck are you doing it's a pencil I thought it was for free here is a dollar now fuck off."
What I failed to realize the entire time that I was talking to her was the fucking head of bookstore security, some fat pale fucking pig fucker, was right behind me. When I snatched my ID out of her stupid fucking vice like hands, he grabbed me told me he was gonna have me arrested right now if I didn't give them my ID.
I decided to hand it the fuck over and just get it after class. They let me use the pencil surprisingly and I take my final and go to get my ID. When I get there the fat pig fucking head of security took me in his office and I put the pencil on his desk and asked what I can do to get my ID. He said "This won't take more than 20 minutes" My jaw dropped for the fucking millionth time after he muttered that shit.
He was right it took 20 minutes for him to basically read me how my punishment is gonna go down. Which in short boils down to a 200 dollar fucking fine. He said the reason that he is making an example out of me is I guess they chased me down the entire time I fucking walked to my class. They were walking behind me and telling me to stop but I had headphones in and couldn't fucking hear them at all. My denial to stop and talk to them was seen as "defiance" and that is why he was making an example out of me.
Which prompted me to ask the question "If you two were there when I 'stole' the pencil why didn't you grab me and tell me I had to pay?"
He said "We honestly couldn't believe you were stealing something right in front of us so it took us a moment to react, once you left the doors we came out after you."
I am so fucking pissed right now. I have already been having the shittiest fucking 24 hours of 2013 and then that bullshit happens. That is my story of a 200 dollar wooden fucking pencil.
inb4 OP is 14 hate.
On my way to final, took free pencil from bookstore, got 'chased', told it wasn't free, apologized offered them a dollar, they wouldn't take it, and fined me 200 dollars.
