Mean People Suck

Post by Flasher » Tue Jun 25, 2019 8:24 am

I stepped outside early this morning to refill my bird feeders.  As I was walking past my flower mound, something didn't look right so I turned completely around to look.  Someone stole my Dutch Kissing Couple statues from my yard!  For those that aren't familiar with them, here they are.

Image

Now, mine aren't these bronze colored set.  Mine are concrete . . . and heavy.  That couple has been in my yard for 16 years . . . no one has ever bothered them.  Now they are gone.  Jerks.

Oh, and insult to injury? Today is my anniversary.  Niiiiiice.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

After 16 years, why would someone all of a sudden take them!

Why do people have to be so mean!

Our subdivision isn't that big.  So, if someone from here took them, they certainly won't be able to put them in their front yard without being noticed.

Poor Chester and Gertrude.  (Yep, I named them . . . weird, right?)

How rude!  I hope that whoever took them smashed their fingers trying to get them in the vehicle or dropped them on their toe (as long as it didn't break Chester and Gertrude!)  Do you have a neighborhood/subdivision online group or anything (we have something here called NextDoor) that you could post to be on the lookout for them?

Happy Anniversary!  I hope that you and your dh have a great day to celebrate together!!

First of all. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY
Secondly I also name stuff in my house and yard. My Japanese maples are Ole and Koji

And retribution will get the perpetrators- somehow- somewhere. Count on it.

That's horrible! I'm so sorry that happened to you.
I know how you feel.
Several years ago someone stole a really nice silver gazing ball, stand and all from our front yard. It was an anniversary gift from my husband.He bought it from a really nice garden shop in a little touristy town near us. I'd had it for many years and it was perfect and beautiful. I'm still mad about it. :greenmad:

What a really lousy thing for someone to do. You are right. Mean people do suck.

I'm so sorry to hear.  There was a house near us (on one of the main roads through town) that always had a bunch of pig statues in their front yard.  They'd dress them up for holidays, etc. and everyone loved them.  Someone stole them one day.  People took up a collection to help them replace them, but the owners graciously declined and donated the funds.  So, there are certainly a lot of good people in the world, but yeah, mean people do suck.

I had a cute 3 foot white PLASTIC bunny, worth maybe $20, in my yard every Easter and someone stole that from my front yard on a cul de sac. I was so upset and my son and dad laughed saying someone was sick of looking at it. Anyway, I'm sorry and I know how you feel.

I completely agree with you!  There are tons of good people in the world -- and I'm know they far outnumber the mean ones!
