New Jersey football players rewarded after paying for items at store with no clerk

These football players scored a touchdown without setting foot on the field.

Four members of the William Paterson University football team in New Jersey each scored $50 gift cards after surveillance cameras captured them at a Wayne store paying for batteries and sunglasses, even though no employees were around.

Buddy's Small Lots was actually closed Sunday night. But the lock malfunctioned and the lights were on, making it appear as though it was open.

Buddy's management got a call from police that there had been a break-in, but upon arrival, nothing was missing from the store, New 12 New Jersey reported.

Cameras showed the men calling an audible, shouting out for a clerk. Two can be seen depositing cash on the counter, one waving bills in the direction of a camera.

"Not only did they leave money on the counter, they counted out the change," store operations manager Marci Lederman told News 12 New Jersey.

Good deeds should always be rewarded with a slap on the back.

Yawn. This is what you get where you raise kids where they get trophies just for showing up. “Congratulations! You didn’t commit petty theft!” It alsoshows the obsequious obsession our sick culture has with people who play a game in front of an audience that kids play at recess.if this wasn’t about a f***ing football team you couldn’t dare the media to care.

Just the sentiment I posted on the other thread.

Still, good move by the players and very smart move by the store.

It’s amazing but this story seems to be making a handful of posters, angry, even driving some to obscenities in their rage.

I’m surprised the police didn’t charge them with burglary.

Thank goodness we live in a country where it is illegal to teach “Thou shalt not steal” and “Thou shalt not kill” in government schools or we’d have a lot more of this nonsense.

Reward a behavior and you see more of it. Reward honesty and trustworthiness and you get more of it.

As we always told our kids....”you don’t get extra points for doing what you are supposed to do.”

It is nice that these guys did the right thing.
