I don’t live in a “good” neighborhood.
My neighbors are gang bangers, refugees, crack zombies, long time residents who have watched their neighborhood deteriorate and regular people who can’t afford to live anywhere else. Most people are decent if you are. I still don’t go walking after dark.
For nearly six years, I’ve lived here with my son. We’ve seen neighbors come and go. Last year, someone stole a messenger bag from my car. They dumped out my sheets and lotion. They must have really needed a messenger bag. No big loss.
Last week, some low rent, thieving asshole cut the lock on my storage shed and stole my massage chair. I’m grateful they didn’t take my table. That would have crippled me. Last month my son had his school books stolen. I’m glad they didn’t get into his tools. He works with men who have had their tools stolen and it makes their lives very difficult. Even with insurance, there’s a deductible. They’re out a sizable chunk of money. Fuckers!
That’s people’s livelihood for fuck’s sake! I hate thieves in general, but to take someone’s tools for their trade is almost as low as stealing from old people. You bastards! No excuses!
