HyruleBalverine's Random Topic of the Week (25 October 2015)

Postby HyruleBalverine » Sun Oct 25, 2015 8:37 am

Ok guys are gals, here's the setup: Because it's October 2015, which some people might recognize as when the characters in Back to the Future II went to the future, #LootCrate did a time travel related crate for us geeks. In the loot crate was, among other neat items, was a "Sonic Spork"; essentially a spoon with tiny fork prongs and a Doctor Who sonic screwdriver handle. Not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but amusing and it is unique to loot crate (everything this month was an exclusive item).

I took this to work and used it to easy with. I mean, who else there is likely to have one, right? Apparently, at our last break, I'd forgotten to lock my locker, so when I left at the end of the day after all of my little minions had been sent home, my new spoon was stolen from my locker.

My question for discussion this week: What is the dumbest or most unusual thing that you have stolen (and why, if you're feeling up to sharing) or have had stolen from you?

:shock:

Who steals a spoon? I mean, seriously.

Probably the oddest thing I ever stole was a yo-yo. Why? Well, yo-yos were popular and I was a poor kid in the 80s! :lol:

The oddest thing I've ever had nicked was half a can of creaming soda when I worked at Telstra. I had put the can of soft drink (soda) in the fridge (with a label with my name on it) and somoene opened it and drank half of it and put it back in the fridge. When I mentioned it to the employer's rep, they basically said to me that there was nothing that they could do and that I should put a label on it when I took them and showed them my name on the can, they said, "Oh well, nothing we can do about that".

Weirdest thing I've ever nicked would be the teaspoon I accidentally took from a Starbucks as I forgotten that I had put it in my pocket when I left the cafe.

One time when I was like 8 or 9, I took a TV Guide from a supermarket. Back then I didn't know that they weren't free. Took it home and looked at it for another 2 minutes and threw it away. I have had $10 earphones stolen from me on multiple occasions.

My brother and I shared a car that was stolen within a 30 minute gap - he got home 11:30 with the car and I came home at midnight to see no car in the driveway. Cops found it abandoned 2 months later in the woods after it got stuck in the mud.

When hosting house parties in college - some assholes broke into our laundry room and stole some painted Warhammer miniatures from me. That pissed me off.

As for me, there was a time when I would steal Magic cards and Warhammer guys - that was dumb and I feel bad about it. I've never really been much into taking things that don't belong to me.

I'm sure there are some drunken things I don't remember taking. I know my brother took the letter "Y" off our school GYM sign. It was like 18 inches tall and weighed 30 pounds.
