my grandfather always had candy in his pockets, and one time when I got really sick and I was hospitalized my dad told him not to give me any candy. He pulled out his pockets to show he hadn’t even brought any and I got really sad but as soon as my dad walked out of the room he then proceeded to take off his hat and had 2 chewy chocolate candy toffees and 2 orange fanta toffees, and I’ll never forget the happiness and surprise I felt in that one moment in my entire life.
You could hold someone’s doorbell hostage and there’s nothing they could do. You ring the doorbell and demand $4.15 and they have to give in to your demands or you’ll keep ringing it forever. You could stand there all day ringing their doorbell and the police wouldn’t be able to stop you because the police are dirty and want their cut of the doorbell ransom business
