This is kinda a S/O of the rude post.<br><br>
Has someone ever come over to your place and stole something weird?<br><br>
We had a tenant downstairs and his gf came up to use the bathroom once and she took my tampons and a couple rolls of TP. I thought that was weird.<br><br>
If she would have asked I would have given them to her lol

That is weird! We had some really cheap porn we bought once out of sheer boredom. A friend's brother stole it, we discovered the empty cases a couple days later.

My mom once took some of "Albert" without asking. It makes me laugh because Albert is the yeast I have growing in the fridge. She stopped by when I wasn't home and just decided I would be happy to share (which I am) but next time she will call ahead.

I'm almost completely sure that my roommate in college stole several months' worth of birth control pills.<br><br>
I had them in a drawer in my room, and when I went to move out they weren't there (she'd left several days prior). I tore the room apart and never found them. It's possible I'm blaming her for something she didn't do, but I'm pretty damn sure she did.<br><br>
We had a student clinic, why the heck did she steal my BCP?!<br><br>
It meant that I had to get my regular dr to write a prescription and go to a regular pharmacy to get the pills (since school had ended and the clinic was closed) and pay the $35 dollar insurance copay (they were like 7 dollars through school) for the duration of the summer.<br><br>
Ugh. That still pisses me off over 8 years later.

Didn't happen to me, but a friend I work with has pain issues, and uses Vicodin when it gets too painful.<br><br>
A few weeks back, she opened her bottle and noticed the pills looked weird. So she googled the code on the pill, and it was generic tylenol. This wasn't a new bottle of pills, so she's thinking one of her husband's friends stole her pills and replaced them with the generic tylenol thinking she wouldn't notice since they are both long white pills. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
The strangest thing that was stolen from me, was our tacky neighbors in my old neighborhood who stole my trashcans on trash day. I walked over while they had friends in the yard and "stole" them back.

A classmate of mine in college had her car broken into. The theif smoked pot in her car (not hers) and stole her backpack which only had her notes and her textbook for the class. Irreplaceable to her, but useless to someone else, unless they really needed an authoritative version of the Canterbury Tales.<br><br>
He/she left over $300 in CDs and a really nice stereo in the car. Go figure.

I left my purse in a classroom at Cal state Uni L.A., when I realized it and went back it was gone. About a week later campus police called me, someone had found the purse and turned it in. Missing was the money from my wallet, a pair of earrings, some (not all, they left the cheap stuff) of the make up in my make up bag. And the travel sized toothbrush and toothpaste that had been zipped in the make up bag.<br><br>
Who steals a used toothbrush? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

When I was a teen, I had a friend sleep over and she somehow managed to steal a bunch of my horse's gear. I was soo cheezed when I found it all in her tack trunk at the barn. I guess she forgot she put them there when she told me ride her horse while she was away. I was actually really upset, because I took it as a personal insult towards what she must think of our friendship.<br><br>
Also as a young teen, I had just purchased a crap-load of flower and vegetable seeds and had big plans for them. We had an open-house as the house was for sale...at the end of the day every single packet was gone.<br><br>
Those would be the only things I can think of. If anything else was stolen at any other time it must not have been important as I have not noticed anythhing missing.<br><br>
-oh except a movie... I had two seperate p/t daycare kids come the same day and a disney DVD was stolen and the case left behind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> not sure who that was. bugger.

The weirdest thing that was stolen from me wasn't that weird - a Cranberries CD by a guy my college roomie worked with. He was a DJ and apparantly he needed my CD really bad for his gigs? He didn't even deny it, but refused to give it back. I'm still mad about it, but I've never replaced the CD.<br><br>
The weirdest thing ever stolen and placed in our backyard - also in college - was a corner street sign. We lived 2 blocks from Greek Court so we figured that one of the frats had cut it down and left it in our backyard by our garbage cans. The house we were renting didn't have a window that looked into the backyard. It was kind of a weird floorplan. Anyway, the sign was sheared off straight across the bottom. We weren't sure how someone had taken a chain saw or whatever to it and done that w/o anyone noticing. It was so funny, we pulled it inside the house and took pics w/ it before the cops arrived to retrieve it. Somehow they didn't believe us when we said we didn't know how it got there. Go figure. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

We have a stand alone freezer in our garage, usually full of meat and other groceries that we don't immediately need in the kitchen. One day last year, during a snow storm, we accidentally left the garage door open over night (we live in a pretty safe neighborhood). I had just made a run to Costco and bought my kiddos a BIG box of pizza bagels. I went to get them to make some for their lunch and they were gone. The driveway wasn't shovelled yet...but their were footprints going up and down the driveway (seriously, we live in a cul de sac of quiet single family homes in the suburbs...). Forget the snowblower, lawnmower, and other things...someone was after my PIZZA BAGELS. I'm still baffled...

Someone stole a potted tangerine tree from us once. It was only a tiny little thing with 3 leaves. I had left it outside my front door to get some sun and someone opened the gate and walked right up to the door to get it.<br><br>
Another time someone broke into our car and took a pair of prescription sunglasses (with a pretty strong power so it isn't like they could actually USE them) and a handful of Canadian tire money.

When I was in college, someone stole the front wheel off my friend's bike. Just the front wheel. This happened while we were in the dining hall for breakfast and she was doing some last minute cramming for a calculus exam, we went to leave and the wheel was gone. And she was late for the exam.

My car's headrests have built in DVD player/screens with zip up cover that hides them....well one night I must have forgotten to zip them because on my way to work I noticed the driver headset was missing as well as a remote control (the stereo one not the dvd player), my phone charger was also missing. Our friend had installed our headrests and when he replaced them he said who ever ripped them out did such a poor job that they were rendered completely useless lol

somebody a little embarrassed to admit they didn't have money for TP and tampons?<br><br>
hmmm the only thing I remember having stolen when I was a kid was my Heart Family baby. They'd just come out, it was a mom doll with a pregnant shirt and a little baby.<br><br>
A neighbor kid stole the baby.<br><br>
The funnier part, my friend's little sister went on a "reconnaisance mission" but missed the opportunity to steal it back cause the kid came back to her room <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

When I was younger I sold Mary Kay. My Aunt bought the ugliest shade of lipstick known to man from me. Really ugly color. However, this was before I was told I was partially color blinde, so maybe it wasn't as ugly as I thought. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Anyway, everyone in my MK group agreed, it was hideous. Perfect old lady color.<br><br>
I left the bag for my Aunt at my Grandma's house on top of the fridge. My 18 year old cousin stopped by and stole it. I could never imagine why she would steal the ugliest lip color on the planet from my Grandmother's house. I would have given her one for free had she only asked.<br><br>
It caused this huge issue in the family because they assumed the people hired to care for my Grandmother had stolen it. It was a big dramatic mess until cousin fessed up.

DH had a half full (or, was it half empty...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">) cup of coffee stolen from his car the first week of college. Nothing else was taken, just the coffee.
