He has been touted as the Robin Hood of McNuggets and across the Internet people have lauded him as a hero of the people.  But the proper term for him is a thief.
Recently, Cody Bondarchuk, of Edmonton tweeted, “I worked at McDonald’s for two-and-a-half years and I put 11 nuggets in almost every 10-piece I made.”   His tweet got over 902,000 likes and many people praised him for his generosity and kindness, some even went so far as to call him a hero.  Really?  A hero?
If I gave you someone else’s car, it wouldn’t be generosity, it would be larceny.  And while there are those who say, “it was just an extra chicken nugget”, they weren’t Bondarchuk’s chicken nuggets to give and our unrepentant thief acknowledges that his “generosity” cost his employer in excess of $1,600.00 over those 30 months.
There is a reason the 8th commandment tells us we aren’t to steal.  If we can justify a nugget, then what else can we justify?
Most of the ten commandments warn us about taking what belongs to someone else . . . their life, their spouse, their reputation.
And ultimately, there are consequences to our actions. Mr Bodnarchuk may discover that future employers may not want to hire a thief, no matter how honourable he might perceive himself.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is possible, attempt the impossible.
