Summary: Successful numbers running and free food - the good life
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Generally speaking, criminals were stupid.

Mozzie, on the other hand, was not.

They'd hang out in front of sleazy liquor stores and wondered why cops easily caught them with undercover buys.

Mozzie figured he'd do business differently and set up shop at local establishments that had good foot traffic and low risk.

Launderland on 131st, the no-name video rental place on Hooverston Boulevard, a Chinese fast food buffet at the corner of LaVell and Madison... The latter of which had the added bonus of trading him all he could eat in return for a few free shots at the lottery he was running. He made sure they won something fairly early on to make sure the meals kept showing up.

After that he started targeting more food stores: a bagel place for breakfasts, a submarine sandwich shop, a pizza joint... They all were very profitable and contributed to him getting a bit of a pot belly before he even hit fourteen.

He drew the line at ice cream places and other sweets shops. They had too many kids there, not enough adult customers and besides, he was the Dentist. He could hardly advocate anywhere people could get so many cavities.

I absolutely love Mozzie's thought process and personal morals here. Just excellent.
