Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.

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..

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.

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.

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.
