My trashmonger rants got me more heat than any thing I’ve posted here before. In the comments of my original post I noted that in the past I have witnessed trashmongers flat out stealing other people’s property. The other morning, I experienced it first hand.
In my enclosed patio (which is not that far from the dumpster in the back of the building) there were several yard statues left from the previous tenant. A crumbling Buddha that couldn’t be moved lest it fall apart, a bronze looking Indian statue with a prostrate worshipper, two yard gnomes and a black bear. They were strange yard fellows but I enjoyed gazing upon them over my morning coffee. However, a few days ago, the Buddha and Indian statue vanished! Who would climb over my fence to steal these religious relics? Why did said person only take the crumbling Buddha and Indian statue? Why did they do this under darkness of night? Should I expect to get photographs of the crumbling Buddha in exotic locations? Or is it just time to string up the barbed wire?
