I saw something yesterday on the TV news about thieves driving up to people's homes because they see packages sitting on porches and front stoops.
They waltz up, grab the box(es) and drive away taking hard earned dreams and trust with them.
They are stealing Christmas presents, wedding presents, anything that usually is shipped via UPS and left while you are at work.
Why do I mention this now?
I just chatted with my little sis. She ordered, like many across the country, online. The day they call Black Monday, the busiest online shopping day of the year, is the siren call for thieves, malcontents and inconsiderate neanderthals to take advantage and ruin hard working peoples' holidays. Remember The Grinch?
Her packages were witnessed by a neighbor as being delivered. However a few hours later, when she got home from work, they were all GONE!
So, Beware. Track your packages if you can and be aware when they might be delivered. Have a neighbor get them for you if you are able. Before the Grinches of the season steal your bought treasures. Unlike the Grinch, these slime of society do Not 'see the reason for the season' and will not ever give them back.
I had to mention this.
