Other side of the coin:

When I attended trade school for six months to get my drafting certificate, I used to always chain my Viscount to the same light pole.

Apparently, someone in the machine shop convinced their teacher that the bike was abandoned, and was given a bolt cutter so they could cut the chain and take it home.

Fortunately, I was able to trace what happened, and went to the guy's house (on the bad side of town) to get it back.

After that, I always brought it in, and parked next to my drafting table. Even today, when I take my bike with me to work, I often ride it to the building, and take it inside and park it in my cube. No sense in tempting someone to break a window to liberate a bike, or finger it out of the back of the truck.
