It would have been one thing if my seemingly friendly, albeit trashy, ex-neighbors assumed that I wasn't coming back for my garden containers. But they had seen me, even spoke to me in the weeks prior to Robbie's move from the Vancouver house. Saw me with their own filthy eyes.
It was the last day of cleaning/loading. I went out to dump the bins and hose em' off, but they were missing. I asked Rob if he'd taken care of it before he broke his leg (skateboarding accident a week earlier).
"No babe. Sorry, I didn't get a chance. Maybe Steve moved em' to the side of the house to mow the lawn?"
I went to investigate, but realized the big red tubs had been directly behind me in the neighbor's yard. Violent expletives and flailing ensued.
I stomped over there to drag em' back. Then I saw the tin, the only nice container I had, displayed brazenly on their porch. I made an audible gasp of disgust and shouted "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?! YOU DON'T EVEN GARDEN!!".
The soil in the red tubs was so water-logged that I couldn't even move them. Unfortunately I'd dumped the tin months prior, because it was my full intent to pour the soil on their lawn furniture and barbeque. I was MAAAAAD. Madder than a hornets nest.
The funny thing is: I was too embarrassed for them to ask if they would kindly move the stolen items back into my yard. It's okay, they have to live with knowing that I know. They stole two 3 dollar plastic tubs; cracked, sun-damaged and uglier than sin. What kind of an animal would do something so stupid?

Some people have some nerve!
What an odd thing to do!?!? (them i mean, not you)
I would have called the law and filed on them for theft.Just to show them I could and then made them drag it all back.
I had to laugh, sorry. Some people are unbelivably stupid. Rise above it, and spread the word.
Oh my - this is not happening. the nerve. Can you believe it, they are ridiculous.
:) It's okay, because the whole story tickled me about 25 minutes after it happened last month. I don't actually think they're animals, but they are trashy. lol
You just never know what people are thinking. I just never understood how people can steel from another person. I mean really...
Shame on them ... probably something they could have gone out and bought themselves!!
