Stop Thief!

Someone stole my recycling! I was at the garbage stop tonight, with a billion other people of course. I was waiting in line to throw my stuff in the truck, and had set my big box of bottles down by the sidewalk to throw in the other truck once I got rid of bag number 1 (gross yucky garbage). But when I was done and went to get the garbage it was gone! How weird! Not that I'm so much attached to my recycling but it was more just an odd feeling. Stealing a purse? Understandable. A bike? Ok..But my box of bottles? And so weird that I couldn't find it! I walked around the trucks, to the lady who sometimes collcts recylcing, all over and it was just gone! Mostly I just wanted the carboard box back that they were in, it's a huge sturdy one from Costco that we use(d) as our plastics container at home. Hmm...

Ryan has started locking our recycling in the shed, because we have a recycling thief, too! Of course, it is worth a small bit of money, but who would bother to come all the way up our driveway and through the gate only to have to rifle through garbage bags to see which ones have cans and bottles? Obviously someone is desperate (we think it might be a previous tenant!)

I don't think I get surprised anymore at the crazy things that can happen in this country! Maybe someone was helping you out. Good luck finding another good box!
