The Jiffy Prank

Apparently there's a tradition of past employees of Jiffy Lube breaking into the store and stealing the bleeder valve on the compressor, thus rendering the machine useless. It's called the "Jiffy prank." At least, that's the excuse Paul Marvella is giving to explain why he took the valve. He later returned it, but nevertheless the store is charging him with felony commercial burglary. [Hernando Today]

Um, I think a burglary's still a burglary, Paul, even if it is traditional.

Some traditions are, as Hamlet said, "More honored in the breach than in the observance."

How is this even remotely a prank and not vandalism?
