I am trying to be better, not judge people or get angry. But after one of my girls having their bike stolen from right outside my front door, in the middle of the day, puts me over my limit. This is the fourth bike that I have had stolen here. Yes, they were told do not leave your bikes out, if someone steals it, I will not replace it.
A neighbor girl saw another girl in the neighborhood on said stolen bike. She apparently went to her fathers house and took the bike with her. I do not know if the bike will be coming back, but as soon as she does, her mother, her, and I are going to have a little chat.
What kind of parent does not question when their child comes home with a new bike? “Oh, did she tell you she borrowed it from a friend? And you believe everything your kids say too?”
This is so frustrating to me. I hope the bike comes back, mainly for the fact of there is a bike lock wrapped around the center bar that unless if they cut it off, they will not be able to get it off. So, if she has an issue believing me, then after I call the police, I will kindly remove the lock to prove the bike is mine.
It is shameful when you cannot trust anyone any more. What happened to respecting others belongings, property, etc?
