All You Need is a Little Change and Some Gum

The latest edition of the crime watch chronicles for the neighborhood had the following sad tale:

Change taken from car

Police were notified when a man complained that change was taken from his unlocked car in his driveway. It totaled about $10. It happened anywhere between 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. the next day. The glove box was opened and the contents scattered everywhere.

Let's review. You left your car unlocked for over 12 hours. All that was stolen was change. You had about $10 change in your car.

Very sad indeed. Sad for the crook! You know the contents were scattered everywhere because the thief was trying to find something good. Do you know how heavy $10 in change would be? Even if it were all quarters you are talking about 40 quarters. Hopefully the thief found a bag in the car to carry it in.

You know what is even sadder than that crime tale? When you take your car in for service and later discover that someone at the dealer stole your gum. Your gum. The gum that was sitting out in the open which you would quite obviously, but many hours later, realize was gone. The gum that you would accuse your husband of taking.

Times are tough when people start stealing gum and change. Especially when it gets stolen from people you are paying.

We paid to get our gum stolen. How sad is that?

Oh please...your average grease monkey is a redneck.
Rednecks chew gum.
You practically begged to be robbed.
If you let a fox into your hen-house don't be surprised when a few eggs go missing...

fingers - you are right. What was I thinking? Next time I will be sure to remove my gum, my change, and my popcans. What else do rednecks like? At least I didnt file a police report like the victim of the great change theft.

Who has $10 of change in their car anyways? I am lucky if I have a dime in my car. And if someone stole it, I would not bother reporting it!

As for the gum, I cannot believe those crooks. LOL.

Jenny - apparently a lot of people. More on that to follow. Good thing we have a bazillion packs of gum around here.
