Inside the Mind of a Cheater

Here is a very interesting interview with a cheater. (Mild language warning on link)
One of the comments says

“A thief believes everyone steals.” A cheater believes everyone cheats

This is so true. When I was in Boy Scouts there was this one guy who always stole everyone’s food on camping trips. We will call him Larry.

There was one week long trip where we set up a base camp, and then back-packed in further for a couple days. Since the backpack trip was shorter you were only to bring what you needed. Well, Larry decided to take all his supplies since he didn’t trust anyone. We all figured our food was safe since Larry was going on the hike. Well, Larrys pack weighed a whole lot more then everyone elses, so he whined, moaned, cried and complained the whole time. The Scout Master ended up carrying his pack for him.

When we got to our camp Larrys solution was to eat all his food so he wouldn’t have to carry it back out. Then he starved the rest of the week. It was really funny. I doubt think he learned his lesson though.

    It’s true. I’ve also noticed that when people have a particular weakness, they really admire and respect people that they meet who don’t have that weakness. Fact is, a lot of people don’t have said weakness from birth, so they didn’t do anything to earn the respect. But looking at someone who doesn’t suffer from the problem, it’s hard not to like look up to them. 🙂

    I don’t think that is true at all. You can’t compare stealing to cheating it’s two different things. I have stolen things before, doesn’t mean I think everybody does it. I have never cheated on anyone I have dated, but have felt they might be cheating on me, and I was right, so there.
