Stealing From Construction Sites

About 20 years ago, I was standing around after church and talking to a couple of older ladies.  The conversation went kind of like this:

Older Lady Number 1:  I watched a news special last night about people stealing from construction sites.

Older Lady Number 2:  That’s horrible.

Me:  My great aunt does that.

Older Lady Number 1:  What, the news?

Me:  No, steals from construction sites.

Me:  She was arrested a few weeks ago for stealing a toilet, so she could remodel her bathroom.  She’s already on parole, but because of her age, they probably will not send her to prison.

Old Lady Number 1 and Number 2, just stare at me with a blank look in their eyes and are completely speechless.

That was the end of our conversation.

  1. Oh my! Did your aunt really steal a toilet? When we built our house, we were able to put up a gate to keep people away – it helped too that you can’t see the house from the main road….the driveway is .25 miles long, winding, and in the middle of a stand of trees.

    • Yes, she did and she really was on probation at the time. Her sons helped her, because she was around 80 years old.

      Her age and health is why she avoided prison time, even though it was a flagrant violation of her parole.

      All involved where given fines and sent home.
