A coworker’s husband had a bunch of tools stolen and it made me think: Once I was loading a large break bulk shipment onto my truck in Langley and talking with some of the yard boys who were helping: The subject of people using handicapped parking spots when they didn’t need to came up and I shared a hope that those people were seated in the same section of Hell as tool thieves and pedophiles.
One of the yard boys stopped me, “HEY!” With an absolutely straight face he asked, “don’t you think you’re being kind of rough on the pedophiles?” It was wonderful deadpan and drove home the point that tool thieves aren’t well liked.
If you think you’re being offered stolen tools you may be tempted to either buy them or punch the fence in the mouth. Don’t do either of those things. Call the police.
