Top 5 Totally Uncool Things About My 'hood - #3 in a series

Who was stealing our papers?

Was it this guy?

I say “was” because we finally decided to just cancel our weekend delivery. I was fed up with the thievery and tired of waiting the 30 to 60 minutes it took to get a replacement. Plus I simply didn’t care to support that loser’s Sunday reading.

K and I relished weekend mornings on our front porch, reading the paper and keeping an eye on the parade of pedestrian traffic from atop our hilly perch – procrastinating work on the house.

Why didn’t the thief just steal a paper from Starbucks? There are always a couple of papers lying around there. He wouldn’t even have to buy a cup of coffee. The Starbucks is inside a Laundromat. He could just pretend he was waiting for his laundry.

When I canceled our home delivery, I theorized that I would just walk around the corner and buy a paper; but that plan never happened. Instead, we just live in ignorance. And maybe get more done on the house.

Okay, that is just about the funniest thing I've ever seen. And I thought it was real- meaning YOU filmed it until I read on.

No, I didn't film it but I wish that I had. It's a classic. And I wish that he had been the real thief. I'd feel a lot better about the situation.

Thanks for visiting.
