Thanks Lizzy... That is a confidence boost!
Yeah I know what you mean about the noise thing... I am sure we annoyed heaps of people when we were renoavting! OOOPPPSS
I hate it when people have to have the music or TV up so loud that you don't need to worry about trying to watch TV yourself! Get a hearing aide people!!
Or people that let their dog out to run the streets.
There is a person 2 doors down that lets their dog poo on our elderly neighbours front yard. And we were just out walking our dog with Josh (2) and the dog came charging out acroos the street. Buddy (our dog) is a german shepard and is getting on in years and would defend us with no hesitation. But this dog is a BULL MASTIF. It has charged at us before but the Ranger says they can't do anything unless they see it out! By the time the Ranger gets here the owners have brung it in. My DH had to go to the house and get a bar so we could fend the dog off to get home!

We have some "roaming" dogs in our street too !
They are not nasty dogs, but they do poo on our lawn, which I find really rude.
We have a dog, and we don't let him poo on their lawns or let him roam the streets !!!

I am actually quite frightened of dogs (was attacked on the way home from a birthday party as a kid - needless to say that dog got the birthday cake !) In high school, I used to walk or ride about 1km out of my way, just to avoid a charging type dog ! Shocked

Something else that gets my goat is HUGE shopping centre car parks, and only 4-6 spaces available for mums with bubs / prams !!!
I was at the shops last week, and the gap was so tight between my car and the next, I had to put the baby in from the other side !

Anyway, I'll stop now LOL Laughing

AAHHH Tina that really bites. I hate it when people think they can help themselves to stuff that is not theirs. What a pain to have to cancel cards etc as well. I had my wallet pinched when I was at work about 18 years ago! (I am old hey) and it only had about $15 in it but that was not the point.

I hope you at least get the cards etc. back. Did you report it to the police? Maybe if you get it back they can do a finger print thing and catch the little suckers. I never leave my handbag anywhere besides my shoulder.

I have seen people get out of their cars with a sticker on the car but no baby no seat etc. and toddle off into the shop. I say "wow what a cute baby you have, must be hard looking after it it is such a fiesty little thing!'
Don't leave a note for them next time tell security and they can get a fine! Or carry a tin of shaving cream and smear their widscreens with it!! hehehehe

Oh no Tina! That's awful - especially at this time of year. My bag never leaves my shoulder either. I don't give the buggers any chance at all.
I've found bags that have been dumped after they've obviously been stolen with no cash etc, but the owners were always grateful to get them back with something rather than nothing. I really hope that 'Karma' gets the sods one day. Hope you can replace all that was in it.

In the first couple of months my Jess was working at Big W in town she had her wallet stolen, then later her mob phone and cash on a separate occasion. Some temporary worker gained access to the storage areas. It happens a lot apparently. Management had their suspicions but didn't have proof so no-one was caught. She's even been stolen from while in class at school from another visiting school. It's getting harder to trust people.

My Angus8 has autism and we often need to use a Disability parking space. I get so p'd off at the idiots who think they can use these spots just so they can park closer to the shops. No respect or thought for others who might genuinely have a need for the space. And ditto Lali, I too have left many a note on someone's windscreen. I've also 'decorated' a few cars with the lovely roll of toilet paper I keep in the car for those 'emergency' situations.....whatever the emergency!

It's a minor crime in the scheme of things but it's horrible because its so personal and sorry it happened to you - especially at this time of year. But hopefully Karma WILL get them.

There's an awful lot of opportunistic crime around now, and wallets and handbags are taken for Xmas top-up cash. Our local Coles staff told hubby and me that Tuesday mornings are the worst time for theft (handbags and goods) in their shops. They're not sure of the significance of Tuesdays. (We're normally Monday shoppers but this week it's tomorrow. I'm forever telling people not to leave their bags unattended! People are far too trusting.) Hope you have a really wonderful Xmas to make up for this. x

Morning all. Well...hubby and I are off to do the ...um...Coles shopping this morning...and if any pesky little thieves are out for my bag...let's just say they'll encounter the man-eating python in there. Plus I tossed in a 3 metre saltie croc just for good measure!!!! Snap! Merry Xmas!

Very Happy
