    What was the last thing stolen from you?

    Mine was a $20 bill (indirectly) today-----

    I keep a lot of foreign currency in my wallet because a lot of people ask me to loan them money but they never pay me back so now I just show people some Euros and Singaporean Dollars---but I do keep some US currency in the back for when I need to legitimately pay for things.

    The Lacrosse team is raising money for children to go to school in Ethiopia--- pay for books, clothes, teachers, food, etc. They're putting the money in these buckets at lunch and before and after school. My friend on the lacrosse team sees me, and I have the erroneous reputation of being wealthier than the Queen at my school, and he asks me for money for the Africa thing. The lowest bill I had in USD currency was a $20, and I asked him if he could break it because that's a lot of money still. He and his other friends rendered me into a guilt trip and I put the $20 into the bucket and they say that I'm a good person, etc. I hung around them for another few minutes and then left. Then, as I was heading to my fifth period class, I happened to bump into him in the hallway and he tells me that my bill was stolen from the bucket. It could have been him because he cracked a joke about how he was going to spend it, but I believe that he's a good person and wouldn't steal money from starving African children (directly) or me (indirectly). Maybe I have more trust in people than I should.

    I just needed to vent. Let's hear your stories.

    a 20 buck DVD player about a year ago when some one broke into the house I was renting. My roommate on the other hand lost his nicer DVD player, and his DVD collections and one N64 controller and a TV we where going to take to dumpster any how.

    I tend to believe I don't know the latest thing stolen from me. But, depressing realities aside, I believe a co-worker stole an art book I bought for a friend. He gave me money, I bought the book, brought it to work, showed it around, it vanished, I had to buy a new book. Wunderbar. I believe it was one of the developers I was in charge of. A little mousey bugger named Armin. He was pretty impressed with it, and fancied himself an artist as well. It's unfortunate when you realize some people don't deserve your acquaintanceship.

    Mm. What a depressing topic. :(
