As I'm waiting some scumbag comes up and tries to grab something out of his bed. I yell at the guy and he takes off. I get out to take a look and it was a BR600. So now the guy is coming out of the packy with beer. I say hey buddy you need to secure your equipment. Before I could finish my sentence his drunk as* says mind your f**king business. So I say ok enjoy your crapsman mower.

Some people have nerve. Maybe it was a good thing if his blower was stolen. I dont know. Hes a drunk ahole to say the least.

I just did what I would want someone to do for me. This guy didnt deserve a explanation.
Not saying you did any wrong, just the same unsolicitated opinion might have been the last straw on anotherways baaaaaaad day. "Hey buddy, you need to..." is a little abrasive. On a bad day I'd pixx on any stranger telling me what I "need"...

...and this wasn't even "The Walmart" but the freakin' anonymous 'dollar store', sometimes it's who you're with, sometimes it's where you're at. Sometimes it's who you are.

I do believe you meant well but the response you got just doesn't faze me. I live by a simple rule that Most People Suck. Currently no MPS gear available Perhaps soon at a Cafepress site? (Because Most People do Suck).

Anyway...

I don't wish theft upon anyone and especially tools of someone's trade. I count on mine, I've never had to file a claim. Without my tools I might as well be a chimp, at my worst I strive to (at least) not be a chimp. This was clearly a stranger? Perhaps a Chimp? Worse yet, some poor guy on the road to being a Chimp? I've gone maybe Orangitan, not quite full-Chimp (I had a few tools left) and climbed the banana tree a limb or three. Four is underfoot, five is within reach. Being bipedal is good.

Every tool theft affects those who insure theirs...Police reports weigh in with claims, insurance companies have been big-time schmoooozers forever. They can't make guarantees but they come close to science so far. Statistics determine cost, theft always adds to the tab. Doesn't matter if it's $300 trimmers or $30,000 bobcats. Theft costs us everyday.

Just sayin'
