“My father would leave his jacket behind in the evening, he would come home every time and put his jacket away, then he would have a little whisky”the columnist remembers. Taking advantage of this routine, he discreetly took the wallet from his father to steal tickets. “I would buy a ticket almost every night and I think it was a very large amount.”he confessed, without showing any apparent remorse.
