I’ve become a snitch and I’m proud of it

I made a decision last night that when I see a fake NFL jersey on eBay, I will report it to eBay. That’s right, I’ve become a snitch.

I have an email alert set up with eBay so that when someone posts a Nike Elite NFL jersey in my size, I get an immediate email alerting me to this fact. I got one of these emails like night. I looked at it and immediately knew it was a counterfeit jersey. I have a real Nike Elite NFL jersey. I bought it from the NFL Shop. I know what a real Nike Elite NFL jersey looks like.

It wasn’t even a good counterfeit jersey. So I reported it.

I've become a snitch - Bent Corner

I use to have a negative view on snitching. I never wanted to be thought of as a snitch. The older I get, the more I just don’t care. I don’t care what people think of me, especially people who are not in my life in a meaningful way. I care what my wife thinks about me. I care what my brother and his wife think about me. I care what my wife’s family thinks about me.

That’s about it.

If you don’t want me to snitch on you, whether it’s on eBay or anywhere else, then don’t do bad shit in front of me. If you decide to do something immoral or unethical in my presence and you’re worried that I may tell someone what you did, it’s a valid concern to have. I will snitch on you.

You can count on it.

  1. I’ve come to the point that I feel exactly the same way you do. I have just gotten so sick and fed up with all the crap that goes on in our communities these days and part of the reason it all goes on is because of this street code against snitching. If more people came forward and spoke up when crap goes down, people would be less inclined to do all that crap and our communities will become way less of an eyesore that it currently is.
