I was elected to the post of Treasurer by my peers in elementary school. My job duties consisted of reading the balance of the school store and the student council treasuries at the start of each meeting. I didn't know there was a difference between the two, and my school's secretary would use the balances interchangeably when telling me how much money we had at our disposal. No one noticed that the balance jumped all over the place until halfway through the school year. If I would have been on my A-game, I could have embezzled half that cash without anyone knowing any better. I would have broken my campaign promises to be honest, but I'd already broken them during my campaign when I claimed to have acted as treasurer at my old school. I was a natural politician.
