The Rock stole Snickers bars from 7/11 as a kid, 36yrs later he returns to right his wrongs

What would you have changed if you could go back in time?

There are undoubtedly many things that, given the chance, you would change or go back and do.

We turn to measures like making amends or attempting to make up for the missed opportunities of prior mistakes because we are unable to achieve this.


Celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have their own share of mistakes that they would like to make up for in the present, just like the rest of us.

The Moana actor is well-known in Hollywood, but prior to his success and wealth, he was a nobody who had much less than what he does now.

He is very forthcoming about discussing times in his life when he was young and poor.

He can now do the tasks he was previously unable to complete since he lacked the resources to support his initiatives before he became well-known.

He has much greater ability now than he did in the past thanks to his rank and influence.

The Rock would like to make amends for his earlier use of theft as one of his mistakes.

When he was 14 years old, the Black Adam actor broke into his hometown’s 7-Eleven every day and grabbed a Snickers bar. He needed to eat because he was “broke as hell.”

In a video uploaded to Instagram, he states, “I have been waiting decades to do what I’m getting set to do now.”

He does not take pride in this error. He had been holding out for the ideal time to return to his hometown and “right a wrong,” referring to this error that he wished to atone for.

The opportunity for Dwayne Johnson to go back to his hometown and complete his goal finally presented itself.

He walked to the 7-Eleven in the community, requested a paper bag from the cashier, and then went to the aisle where the Snickers bars were all arranged. Each and every one of them was seized by him, and he placed them in his paper bag.

He paid for all of the chocolate bars he had acquired by bringing them to the cashier. He afterwards offered it all to the other customers at the 7-Eleven in his hometown.

The Rock was ecstatic to have finally realized his error.

In the video he posted to his Instagram page,

That felt really, really wonderful, Dwayne said at the conclusion of his clip, “after decades of me wanting to come back home to 7-Eleven and try to make good.”

Although we cannot change the past, we can atone for our mistakes by acting morally in the present.

The Rock concurs wholeheartedly.

He added, “We can’t go back and undo some of the stupid things we may have done, but every so often we can add a small redeeming grace note to that scenario – and maybe put a big smile on some strangers’ faces.
