There have been many deviant actions that I have partaken in. It took me a long time to narrow down to one action that I would feel comfortable discussing in this paper. I had to choose a deviant action that was not too recent because I would be embarrassed to discuss any of my recent deviant actions. .
I can remember a deviant action that occurred about seven years ago. I was in my sophomore year of high school and at that time I was, what I thought to be, "broke". It was Friday night and I was just getting off from my minimum wage after school job at KFC when I noticed that I had absolutely no gas in my car. I did not want to ask my mom for any more money this particular week because I previously spent the forty dollars that she gave me on an outfit that I "had to have". Because it was my turn to be the driver for the "weekend club hopping" I knew that I had to fill my tank with enough gas to pick up my friends, go downtown to the clubs, and go back home after dropping everyone off. I only had ten dollars, and that is exactly what it cost to get in the club. I knew that it would take exactly eight dollars to fill my tank with gas at 86 cents per gallon . . . . . . . boy I wish I could go back to those days! .
I went to Racetrac to try and use my debit card with hopes that it would work for this transaction. I put my card through and swiped it at the pump but, not at all to my surprise, the transaction did not go through. "Unauthorized" was what the machine said because my account did not have a dime in it. I knew I had to do something.
I proceeded to pump the gas, as if I were going to pay after I finished pumping. I filled the tank up, got in my car, and drove off . . . . . very fast. At the time I knew it was wrong, but it just seemed like a good idea. But, what was done was done and there was nothing I could do to take it back. I now had a full tank of gas and I was prepared for my night out on the town with my friends.
