DON’T TAKE THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN, AND DON’T SKIP OUT ON YOUR BILL
So that’s a new one! I’ve totally heard of people skipping out on their bills at restaurants. Shoot, I’ve even seen people do it in several US cities. But there was that one time the bartender caught up to them. Anyway… I never saw one like this. A woman in New Mexico had that particular hunger for something from Sonic. So she went to Sonic and got her eat on. But there were shenanigans. Because while the woman wanted to eat her some Sonic, she didn’t want to pay for it. So she told the staffer, “This one’s on God.” And then sure enough, she took off without paying a dime.
GOD WANTS YOU TO HONOR YOUR COMMITMENTS, EVEN AT SONIC, EVEN IN NEW MEXICO
So if I was an ironic sort, I’d go to church and drop a penny and ask for God’s thoughts on this. But that might be anathema to even slightly decent humor. But taking God’s name in vain, is well, vain. Especially like this woman did. Why? Well, maybe that’s because we know her name. Oops. 30-year-old Delila Hernandez traveled the more manual path to her crime and away from it. While it wasn’t biblical, it was her riding her bicycle. Delila (sans Sampson, alas) arrived at the Sonic and placed an order for her food. But then the server told her what the tab was.
“STARVING” WOMAN TOLD POLICE SHE HAD TO EAT STOLEN FOOD, BUT SHE DIDN’T WANT TO
That’s when an ordinary day at Sonic became the violation of at least two Commandments. That’s when Delila took the Lord’s name in vain. The server told her, “that’s not how this works.” Hmm. So then Delila lunged at the man to grab the food. Not surprisingly, the server didn’t fight her off and let her take the food. Who knows what someone like that could do to you? But he did then immediately call the police. Delila, for her part, maybe then broke another of God’s writs. After police found her in a nearby park eating her ill-gotten meal, she tried to explain.
But she told them she didn’t really want to eat her stolen meal. So why did she? Because she was starving. Hmmm.
