    Thieves will take anything...

    I'm sure you all know this already, but these losers'll take anything. I don't mean just 'professional' thieves, but also losers that take things randomly or think is cool.

    Why do people take spokecard? is it because it's easy to take off? One of my spokecards was stolen today, but not the fender on the back that can be taken off even easier. It didn't fall off because it was on there tight.

    Sorry for the rant.

    i had one of the "i like to ride" stickers stolen a few weeks back
    while i was in a joint on st. marks. i was only inside for maybe a hour
    and someone peeled it off, pretty hilarious yet sad, sorry about
    your spoke card, guess they are too lazy to get their own.

    had all of my spoke cards stolen one night last year. i live in somewhat of a college town, so i assume it was just some drunk frat guy, but it still pissed me off hard.

    while we are ranting about thieves i will pass along this mad ridicoulous news.
    last week i had my ipod stolen out of my locker at work, that made me quite
    upset i had 23 days worth of music loaded on it. then friday some ass*****
    burned two small holes about the size of cigarettes on the bottom of my
    braned new as yet not even paid for frieght bag.
    sooo pissed off, this is why i have to switch jobs,
    also in the last year at this job i have had my shoes thrown away,my insoles thrown
    away,my bike tires slashed,trash put in my bag daily for weeks at a time..
    i can go on, but i won't.
    the world outside for me is more safe then the place in which i work.

    uhhh... Is this just one person doing all this stuff to you or is it all the poeple at work?
    That's a lot of crap to do to someone..... Maybe it's something that you're doing and
    not just the people at work?.... I'm defenitely giving you the benefit of the doubt, but just
    saying. I've never heard of someone having their insoles thrown away. Who would even
    touch someone else's insoles? Did you try petitioning them? Just joking.

    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    Here you go again.....worrying about spoke cards.

    I always get a lot of entertainment reading threads in SS/FG.

    Seriously. WTF.

    Have you thought about getting HR involved? And if they're not interested, have you thought about a little vigilante justice? It seems warranted in this case.

    You're an idiot, read the thread again and if you still don't get it, then oh well... glad we can entertain even the dimmest of folks.

    I see that your hipster points went down 25point on that day. But don't worrry, just get a black hoodie, some jeans, a studded leather belt and maybe some Puma shoes and your hipster points will shoot up 50points, then you can be "tight" especially if you have a "trick" fixed gear bike.

    all the stuff i mentioned happened within the last year save the ipod and the burn holes
    in the new bag which both happened in the last week .
    i talked to the owner and she told me that while she was sorry, it was my fault
    for bringing things i care about to work. the manager said he felt bad about
    it all and offered to help pay for the repair to the bag out of his own pocket.
    while thats really nice of him it still doesnt replace the ipod or other aforementioned
    things.
    as soon as i quit i may have to take as you put it "vigalante justice", because
    the police can't help, and i can't sue, because i have no proof of which person
    did all these things.
    anyways i do hope that it all stops and i don't have anything else happen.
