What happens when...


You leave a package in your condo foyer for a local forumite?

It gets stolen! That's what.

Left some Lime Green Endlers from my RAOK for a forum member and they were stolen before they arrived!

Is that luck or what?

Hope the d-bag who swiped the box felt the rough hand of karma when they opened the box to discover live fish.

Thank goodness these things breed like roaches. (Not to sound insensitive toward the critters)

Thats awful.

He'll give them back a month later and be like: "I CAN'T TAKE ALL THE BABIES! TAKE THEM BACK! TAKE THEM BACK!"

A review of security footage and a handy police report later, the fish have been returned!



As you can see, the label was ripped and they re-taped it.

Opened the box to find them alive and well. THANK GOODNESS.

Contacting the local forum member to let him know.

Scandalous! Do you know now which of your neighbor is a no good thief? Spread the word, I doubt he'll do it again but he should feel really uncomfortable living there from now. You'll be doing your community a service.

Wait let me guess...he's going to plea ignorance...."I thought that was my package"....even though it was at your door....

Returned it after we reviewed security footage and filed a police report, yeah. I think it was easier than dealing with the embarrassment of having stolen a handful of fish.

Are people these days really in a desperate need to steal packages off people's door steps just to resell whats inside?!

I had this happen to a coworker of mine not too long ago. The couple had ordered a bunch of toys for their kid. Well, they went to pick up the box and everything fell through the bottom of the box. Someone had the guts to open to package, decided NOT to steal it since it wasn't valuable, closed it back up, and just put it back upside down so you can't tell it was tampered with.

People these days...

I'm glad it came to a successful conclusion.

I just got around rot cleaning out the car after last Sunday's Club Swap. I realized I had left a bag of my Organic Root Caps in the unlocked car for a few days. I was thinking about this thread. I had a good laugh at the possibility of some addict grabbing those Caps to feed an addiction. What a surprise that would have been.

I would pay to see that... or pay someone to eat it just to see the reaction

I repeat - they weren't "returned." It took security footage and a police report to get them back.

Stories like this are why my "compound" (house) has a 12 camera CCTV setup. LOL This picture was an idiot co-worker who showed up at 6:47 pm on a Friday night wanting me to go into work. . . I said "NO," posted pictures online, and heckled him roundly via facebook.

My point being, it's really nice to record the comings-and-goings at your residence.
