I knew my non-believing fellow blog buddies would have a moral compass even though Christians, including my mother, say that the Bible is where we get our morals.
So of course I paid for the dog food. I couldn’t have seven bucks worth of dog food on my conscious. See I’m nice and good. 🙂
What I did though was take everything home, pick up the kids from school and then go back to Wal-Mart to pay for the dog food. I actually for a split second thought about just blowing it off and keeping it and not worrying about it. After all Wal-Mart has ripped me off many a time. However, I just couldn’t do that. I would have felt way too guilty. I’ve not stolen anything in my life.
When I took it in the store I had to tell the door greeter what I was doing. He looked at me funny and then sent me to a register. The man at the register also looked at me funny, said wow, thanks most people would have just kept it.
Is it wrong that I kind of wanted to say, most people say they are Christian. Most people would have taken the dog food no worries. I am an agnostic/atheist I brought the food back and paid for it. I didn’t say that and maybe it was wrong to think that too, but that did go through my mind.
On another note, I told my mom today that I no longer believe. It just came out in conversation as that stuff it want to do sometimes. It has been a very stressful and upsetting afternoon. I’m still upset, but I will write about it in the next day or so.
I can say that for someone who wants to please others it is very, very hard to go against the grain. Very hard. It makes me want to pack up and move away at times. Anyone got an extra room for four and some animals?
