Stealing Sucks

Dear Not-Nice Person Who Took My Stuff,

If you are starving, or if you have kids who otherwise will not receive any Christmas presents, I have nothing against your Ebaying the contents of the bag you found on a mall bench last night.

Otherwise, however, you are a true lowlife. There was a Lands End return slip in that bag - you could have taken it over to Sears (as my daughter was about to do for me) and turned it in. Or you could have brought it to the mall management office. That's what I would have done. You know why I would have done that? Because the stuff in the bag wouldn't have been mine. Yeah. You took someone else's stuff. As in, it's not yours.

Maybe you just happen to be a size 6 (petite) and decided you'd like to wear the clothes yourself. Well, be forewarned: when you bend over in those pants, people can see your butt. I hope everyone sees your butt and laughs at you. Yeah. And those white blouses (2 different sizes) that I ordered for my daughter to try for her orchestra performance and that she didn't like (not that she likes anything I pick out)? I hope the first time you wear them, you spill stuff on them that stains and doesn't come off.

Why? Because those clothes aren't yours, that's why. They were mine, and I was about to return them and be refunded my money. Money that I've been working hard for, thanks. Somehow, when I took that job at the bookstore, I didn't think I'd be spending all the money I earned the first 2 weeks to clothe a perfect stranger. I mean, I believe in tithing and all; just not 100 percent, all right?

Forget the job - I think I'll just cruise the mall and take other people's stuff. Why work?

  1. This reminds me of the time someone broke into my husband's trunk and stole all the Christmas gifts for our toddlers. Really? You're going to give stolen gifts to babies?

    I'm sorry this happened to you.

  2. Oh that is horrible!
    I hope that person learns Karma is a BITCH! Especially at Christmas!

  3. That's really awful, especially this time of year. It only takes one creep to give the rest of us a serious case of cynical.

  4. I'm just wishing I was a size 6 petite.

    But I'm also really sorry someone stole your bag...that's all kinds of rude.

  5. Well, that sucks, hope they are wearing their nasty undies when they wear the pants that show their bum.

  6. Some people have a hard time remembering that not everything belongs to them.
    Low-life doesn't even begin to describe it. So sorry.

  9. I am so sorry.

    Once someone stole my daughter's scriptures at church! I kept telling myself that my daughter just lost them and that it was a coincidence another young lady had the same scripture case. A few weeks later I learned the same young lady had been caught with several items belonging to others, including wallets and a BlackBerry!

    Stealing does suck!

  15. When I was 12 I spent a weekend selling some earrings I made at a craft sale so I could earn money for Christmas. I earned $12. Then I went to the mall to see what I could get with it, and it was stolen.

  16. That sucks. What is wrong with people? Is it the economy? We had someone try to break into our home 2 months ago--WHILE WE WERE HOME, lights on, everything. Are people insane?

  17. Oh man. That bites. Around here there's some lady stealing the Salvation Army kettles. Tis the season.

  18. Our mini-van was stolen twice and we got it back both times.

  19. That's too bad. I hope it was a very small very needy person.

    Did you ever see the episode of Dragnet where the Baby Jesus is stolen from the manger and it turns out a little boy who asked for a wagon for Christmas got the wagon and took Baby Jesus for a ride as he had promised he would? Sgt. Friday was very upset when Baby Jesus was gone. Then when Baby Jesus came back in the wagon, Sgt. Friday felt like a goof.

    It was all very touching.

    Maybe the Baby Jesus is wearing your clothes.

  21. I've got nothing good to say.

  22. Now, THAT is crummy! I hope maybe you bought that stuff with a card that has some kind of insurance on your purchases, because if you did, maybe you can get some of that hard earned cash back. I'd check into it. UGH! That makes me sick!

  23. Your title says it all. So sorry - it happened once to me at the mall and really made me peeved. A lot. I feel you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I agree with everyone else- that really sucked. Sorry it happened to you. :(

  25. You are so kind to clothe a perfect stranger. Just the Christmas spirit.

  26. Okay. So my oldest daughter bought a hair removal kit of some sort. And when she got it home, the wax strips had been removed. So she took it back and exchanged it for another kit, had the presence of mind to look in the new box before leaving the store (she's young and thinks of stuff like that), and the wax strips had been removed from that box too.

    Why do I tell you this story that belongs on my own blog? To ponder with you the sort of person that steals wax strips. Much like the kind of person that takes someone's bag of new clothes. I guess it is one thing to be so desperate as to need food or clothing. But wax strips? I guess that would be someone impoverished, but with a clean bikini line.

  27. That's happened to me too, I think to most of us. To calm myself down I always say, "They must have needed it more than me,"

    HELLO ARE U LISTENING PARKING VALETS IN L.A.??????????
