Yesterday afternoon after work, I pull into my garage, shut the door, go inside, get my mail, set my crap down... you know, the usual.
I am standing at my kitchen counter flipping through my mail when I happen to glance out my window, and see my greyhaired neighbor trekkin through her yard into mine, with an arm full of mail and her newspaper. I just stand there watching her, because honestly I've seen this woman MAYBE once since I bought the house.
I thought maybe she had seen me pull in and was coming to my front door to introduce herself or something? But as I continue to watch, I see her heading towards the street, not my front door. I keep an eye on her as she moseys down my driveway and snatches up my newspaper too!
I stood there completely baffled as she looked around, and then headed back to her house. I just watched an old lady blatantly steal my newspaper!
Honestly, what was I supposed to do?! Well, besides post it as my facebook status of course.. which immediately got a bunch of 'likes' and jokes being cracked. But wow!
I mean, do I always read the newspaper? No. But I always bring it inside! It's not like it had been sitting down there for days upon days and she was sick of looking at it... it had just been delivered today!
|(I snapped this a few moments later when she came out to spray weeds or something)|
I would have gave it to her if she had just asked... but to steal my newspaper right out of my driveway - it's on lady. You and me, we're at war.
