Oh, I know that guy. He's a mean one. As cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel.

The three words that best describe him, are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."

Apparenlty, he stole this broad's grasp of English, too. Holy shiat....

The old "empty boxes leading to community outpouring of toys and cash donations" scam has worked again!

Scrooge, I know I say it every holiday but you're the best hire this daycare center's accounting department has ever made!

Damn me if you want, but I refuse to feel sorry for a daycare center whose manager has the verbal skills of a kindergartner.

She probably staged the whole thing anyway.

When I read that quote I first read it to myself in a pirate voice.

You'll have to excuse an ignorant Canadian but..... Is bad grammar that rampant in the US? I know mine isn't perfect but it seems that a lot of people quoted in news articles either sound like Joe Dirt or Mushmouth from the Cosby show. Maybe it's those types that get quoted the most often, or maybe because I'm not used to that type of language butchering.

I've grown far too cynical to assume this is true
It's as likely the burglar's this conniving shrew

But lets just assume
that some jerk took the loot
who fits that description,
and meanness to boot.

I hope that they catch him
and put him away
and in the shower, his bunghole
grows three sizes that day

I'd be more afraid of this guy handling kids with terrible English than toys missing.

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas...
...means a little bit more.


I hope the daycare can salvage Christmas with help from the community.

Thinking about this a little more, this whole thing sounds fishy. The tree, computers, all the gifts and food were all stolen? That's a lot of shiat. That would definitely take more than one person a whole lot of time to do and cause a whole lot of commotion. But they conveniently don't have a securtiy camera. What burglar is going to want to waste his or her time dragging a farking worthless tree around once you have valuables like gifts and computers? And someone took the time to pour milk all over the floor. That's more than thievery. That has a personal element to it. Either that, or it's a pathetic attempt to make something look like vandalism without causing any real damage. And there's no mention of how they got in. Broken window, kicked in door? It has to be something that's convenient enough to move a whole bunch of stuff out in a big hurry. None of this makes any sense.

FTFA: its insurance wouldn't cover any of the losses.

I'd take a long look before reimbursing them anything, too.

Every year we hear about thefts of Christmas toys from underprivileged kids.

Every year, about 1 month later, I expect to see stories of people nailed to trees with signs hanging from the genitals stating "I steal from children".


But I never do.

Also, as to hitmanric's comment on grammar and news reporting, there has been a trend of finding the least literate, least intelligible witness and making sure they are quoted or put on tv.
 
2009-12-21 12:40:47 PM
This only strikes me as suspicious because someone took the tree. They might have stolen the presents to resell them, and they probably stole everything from the fridge because they thought "Hey, free food!"

But why steal the tree? You can't really resell it (I mean you could just sell it at the side of the road or something, but it would be kind of odd just so see someone selling one tree and nothing else, especially if it's already decorated). It's a pain to transport & store, especially if you already loaded up your vehicle with all the presents and food & computers. It's like robbing a convenience store and on your way out stealing the newspaper rack.

I mean it could just be a simple case of the thief figuring "Hey, free Christmas tree!" but it just seems a little bit out of character for the typical thief.

A former coworker had a young daughter in daycare. Another girl said "You is a biatch" to the daughter. Coworker pulled the daughter out, but wasn't sure which was worse, the biatch comment or the bad grammar.
