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.

    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.

    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.
