Default Whew--I checked the garbage bags

My husband called the sheriffs' office when he got home, just in case they dump it somewhere. I swear, we have had a lot of laughs about it. I hope they enjoy going through our trash!!!!
Several years ago my dh and I moved to a retirement home. Most of the family helped us discard what we didn't want to take with us. However, once when I looked outside I spotted 3 filled black garbage bags near the garbage can. After a while I decided that maybe I should check on what was inside the bags. Thank goodness I did; inside were most of my sewing supplies. (Nobody ever confessed to putting the supplies in the bags, but I have my suspicions!)

My dad once knew a guy who had a Drs. appt. and couldn't find a suitable bottle to put his urine sample in, so grabbed a Scotch bottle out of the recycling bin. Sure enough, it was gone after he returned to his car. Wonder if the person joined AA after that?!

It's amazing what people do. Great idea about notifying the sheriff's office, because if anything did have your name and address you surely would be sited.

Many years ago a lady was walking her dog. She was a nice responsible lady and had a bag with dog "duty" in it. Some man ran up to her and just grabbed it out of her hands, and ran off. He stopped a few hundred feet away to see what he had. He stuck his hand in the bag and yelled "OH SH**!!". She yelled back "Yes it is!". (this was told to me as a true story)
