The weather is like summer here. And weekends translate into being outside and braais(barbeques). We had a patio umbrella the previous weekend.
This weekend it was gone!
Who steals garden umbrellas? It is a very heavy, especially with the metal base. Dries walked around in our complex to see if someone had nicked it. We can’t imagine seeing someone walking out with it under their arms. Not that it would be that strange... Reality is stranger than fiction!
It could have been the garden services on Wednesday. They trimmed our neighbour’s trees, and it’s possible they could have smuggled the umbrella and stand out with the tree branches.
The case of the missing umbrella... Another crime statistic? No, not even worth mentioning here with our large crime levels in South Africa.
Just suck it up! It is very frustrating! It’s not like we have back pocket money on hand to go out and buy a new one immediately...
What has been stolen from you that are worth a lot to you, but not worth going to the police about it?
