What would you do?

I just watched a (seemingly) homeless guy steal about 5 pounds of coffee from Starbucks. It was casually done and did not appear to be the guy’s first time. Perhaps the store even knows? They restocked the missing inventory within a few minutes…

I did not say anything… just observered quietly. I definitely have mixed feelings about the whole thing.

  1. And the bigger question…what’s a homeless guy to do with 5 lbs. of coffee? Wonder if he’s a reseller or he’s got some sidewalk french-press action going? But where would he boil/heat water…this raises so many issues. This being SF, he’s probably got that Bodum Santos vacuum jobby back in his cave in G.G. Park.

  2. You certainly raise some interesting points… I have no idea what he could hope to do with the coffee. I can’t imagine there’s much of a reselling opportunity there.
