Guess you needed my flipflops more than I did.

Seriously. When I went into my office I left my flipflops by the door. Someone stole them. We have a lot of that going on. Some of it is true need. I understand that. but seriously? Stealing my flipflops?! Those were the only ones that I had. And there is no way on earth that I am going into the shower without flipflops.The shower is absolutely disgusting. But that’s its own issue.

While I’m laughing about it now. (they’ve been replaced) I am also saddened by thefts in our building. Nearly everyone has had some thing stolen. And no one in our building has a lot to steal. Anything they have that’s sellable is probably the most valuable thing they own. One lady who literally only had the clothes on her back to start with had a sweater stolen. The management is now telling residents not to take their shoes off in bed, because someone might steal their socks. That sounds funny, but they are not kidding!

And the preschool center gets burglarized a lot. Apparently there is a secret market for used toys? Seriously though, stealing the Christmas gifts for low income preschool is seriously pathetic. I’m not sure why you feel the need to victimize two and three year olds. Those were the only gifts the kids would get. Maybe¬† they were stolen for your own child, but really, that doesn’t help!! and the kids did nothing to you to desrve having their gifts stolen.
