I don't put anything with even my name and address without shredding it first. You never know what others are looking for in the garbage.

Why? Because they could. And further from the house they probably won't be caught.

We also shred anything with our name on it. I have used it for packing and made fire starter bricks out of it. My friends have a chiminea (not sure of the spelling) and use the bricks. I have also set small boxes for the birds to build their nests.

Then there's the story of the woman who put her dog's refuse in a lovely ribboned box and set it in the back seat of her car. Three thieves got into her car and stole the package and had the nerve to thank her for the "gift". She merrily said thank you and proceeded to drive off. Wonder what they thought when they opened the "gift"?

I owned a small business between a convenience store and a bar. The bar patrons were always hoping the fence to get hot dogs and other snacks and throwing their trash in front of my shop before going back to the bar. I CHAINED a BEAT-UP metal trash can to a pipe next to the wall in the hope their messy food trash might make it into the can - someone stole the trash can!

Those stories tickled me (aside from the fact of the sadness that people will steal anything).

Several years ago a friend of mine and her family went to eat lunch out after church. When they came out the car had been broken into and they had stolen her Bible. She was very upset as she had it a long time and it had been a gift from her parents. Later she told me that she felt like it may be a good thing as they sure needed it more than she did.
