PRE-APPROVED CAT REMEMBERS SIMPLER TIMES FOR CAT CROOKS OF SAN FRANCISCO
Feckless and Pre-Approved set themselves down to rest in their favorite dark alley in San Francisco's Financial District.
"Why are you so quiet tonight, Pre-Approved?" Feckless the Cat asked.
"Just remembering simpler times for thieves like us. In better days, if I wanted to steal a toy or a wallet, it was just a matter of clawing it over. Now, to make a profit, I have to scam insurance, take options, view futures tables, have some kind of credit or have false ID of someone who does, understand currencies around the world, bank security cameras....I...I don't know, Feckless. I liked being a regular, corrupt cat before...."
Feckless licked his right paw. "Yeah, but it's a minimum wage job now. Times have changed, but some things are same ol'. There's only one eternal rule of robbery, Pre-Approved: RUN FAST WHEN IT GETS TOO GOOD."
