  1. Unlocked?

    The number of imbeciles leaving their cars unlocked – and leaving valuables inside – is incredible. 

    1. thefts
      Yep..and it’s not kids doing it. Who says that growing older makes you wiser?!!! Imbeciles is 100% correct. I hope they’re ashamed of their own stupidity.

    2. Be nice

      If someone feels secure enough in their neighborhood to leave keys in the car or leave the doors unlocked for a few minutes while they run inside, that does not make them an imbecile. Most of us don't like to think there's someone waiting around every corner to take advantage of that moment. How about being a little annoyed at the people who steal rather than the people who have been stolen from? I know I am. I hate feeling like I have to lock the bike in the garage even if I'm only going inside for a few minutes, locking the car doors even if I'm only going to get something out of the yard. It's ridiculous but these reports remind me that I'm not just paranoid. That said, if I forget sometime and someone either steals my car or my belongings, that doesn't make me an imbecile.
