Gina has been cracking up about this one all day!...She took along a chocolate "Zone Perfect" bar on our ride today. When we hit the coast stop she pulled it from her bag then figuring it might be a bit melted, said she was placing it in the shade for a bit so that the chocolate covering could harden back up.
So she placed it on the counter near the sink of the little shack type buildings at the rest stop. She then walks over and sits on the bench about 5 feet away. So she's talking with a couple of friends when 4 racer looking riders approach the stop. One dude stands there for a couple of minutes then snatches the bar and begins to open it.
Gina shouts over,"Hey, that's my bar!". D'oh! The guy is pretty embarrassed as he returns it to Gina and says he thought maybe a rider had accidentally left it there. He remains there for a while but his buds sort of raz him about the situation so he gets on his bike and leaves without his buds!
So is there a rule for lifting a "might have been abandoned bar"? Maybe a sticky on the topic to save further embarrassment!
Would you ask around first or just go for the kill?
