People who steal stuff suck....hard.

I've tried not to rant on this blog. Will I insert a backhanded sassy remark about something that I disapprove of? Hell yes. Will I do a whole post on the ghastliness of our human race? Rarely. Lets do this....

Today, I came home from boot camp around 6:45 a.m. Not only is this ungodly early (but my workout was already behind me...WOOO!), but I was sweaty/hungry/cranky/feeling foul. I walk up to my door and discover that someone stole my doormat! Someone stole the freaking doormat. Just took it like they owned the place. I am pissed. While the doormat wasn't particularly expesive, it had moved with me to multiple homes and it was stinking cute:
Leopard print, but not too W.T. Made of a rough and tumble substance perfect for wiping messy puppy paws on. The perfect mix. I'm furious.
That was just the injustice I needed to send my mood to serious Crappytown. While I did love the thing, it enrages me to no end that some non-neighborly person stole it. What an a-hole. Who would do that? It's so incredibly juvenile. It makes me furious when people, who must share space with others, act as if the whole earth is their own personal Kingdom and they can act however they please. (Other apartment-related selfish acts that send me into a fury: leaving dog poop, double parking, throwing junk mail on the floor of the mail room, propping open the gate so your "bros" can get into the pool, etc.) I cannot express how disappointed in our people this makes me. We all know stealing is wrong. But this isn't like you took home some office-purchased sticky notes. Someone saw my personal property, liked it, and just made it theirs. RUDE.

It's occurred to me to scour the place for my beloved mat and re-steal it. But that makes me no better than the culprit. Also, the complex is freaking giant and it's so hot. That endeavor could potentially eat up like 5 hours and lots of sweat. No thanks. Obviously I cannot find an identical replacement on the entire internet, which is making me all the less able to get over this thing. UGH.

 Point of the story is this: don't steal stuff from your neighbors. We're all on the same team here. The person should have just left a nice note asking where I'd purchased it. Is there no decency anymore? Really?


  1. That drives me insane as well. We've not only had doormats stolen, but people have also stolen potted plants from our stoop. I was pissed, to say the least.

  2. That stinks! Once when I lived in an apartment building someone stole all the xmas wreaths people had on their doors! I had hand made mine and was really proud of it, distroyed my holiday mood that day for sure

  3. That is totally insane that someone just stole your doormat! How could they literally just walk up to some stranger's door and walk off with their doormat not only is it annoying, it's also kind of creepy! It's understandable that you're pissed.

    Also, I just found your blog through the [Life of Meg] Mingle Monday! I love it too, it's really cute!!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
