But I’m just getting more and more sad at what I’m seeing from people
I swear, the depths of desperation seem to get only deeper when it comes to what people are willing to do for a dollar. I actually swim at a community pool where we all pay dues for unlimited access to the pool. This little spot also has a workout room that is air conditioned. I help out around the pool in an effort to give back a bit. And that includes straightening up the place after an evening swim. I noticed that various dumbbells and weight equipment were disappearing from the air conditioning of the little work out room. Sure enough, a member was stealing them. I mean, these are not high dollar items but rather old in fact. Still, I found them online being sold for literally dollars. And these people have good jobs! I was beyond disappointed and a bit stunned. But then again, I have had to put a reinforced steel cage over the HVAC cabinet that sits outside my home. There is a trend that has popped up recently where thieves are ripping apart this piece of residential HVAC equipment to get to the copper fittings. Again, we are talking about handfuls of copper that is then sold on the black market for pennies on the dollar. Yet, this type of burglary leaves in its wake thousands of dollars in heating and cooling equipment completely destroyed. I hate to sound like some whining old guy. But I’m just getting more and more sad at what I’m seeing from people. I hate that there are people in situations or with mindsets that stealing is somehow justified.
