GM walked out of his house on Saturday and discovered that somebody had cut off a bunch of flowers from an annual he had in a box in the front of his house.
Who does this?
What a petty crime (both in terms of it being a really small violation but also just being small-minded). Are those flowers really worth stealing?
Earlier this spring, GM had an entire basket of geraniums stolen right in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. It’s just such a weird crime.
This summer, GM saw a woman walking away from the beautiful gardens around the Lutheran church on Volta. She had a bunch of flowers in one hand and in the other hand she was putting away a pair of shears. She was a middle aged woman with a young child. GM didn’t see her actually cut the flowers, and for all GM knows she is a church member tending to the garden. But it sure as hell looked like she was a woman who walks around with garden shears keeping an eye out for fresh pickings.
Anyway, if a few stolen flowers are the worst of your problems, then you don’t have problems. But it’s still annoying.
