Karma Is A Bitch


Dear asshole(s):

I’m not sure what compelled you to cut the lock and steal not only my Weber grill but my neighbor’s grill too. Please recognize, however, that karma is a bitch. I’m not worried because, eventually, I know you’ll get what’s coming to you.

    This is what happens to stolen grills when they decide it’s kharmic payback time.

    Ooops. Linking is not working or I screwed up. Anyway, all you grill stealers, I was refering you to this:

    Did you check your landlord? Maybe they removed them???

    /happened to me with some stuff I had chained to the back porch

    I hope you’re right. The landlord will get a call from me today. It’s a longshot, but it’s worth a phone call. Thanks for the tip!

    Let me just say here that the more I think about this the more pissed off I get. The grill was given to me as b-day gift by my very good friend Chip, which makes it even shittier that it’s gone.I’m getting sick of having shit stolen.

    I’ve now had my apt. broken into, 3 bikes stolen, been robbed at gunpoint, and had stuff stolen out of the back of my pickup truck. This shit is getting old. I’m beginning to understand the attraction to the suburbs (not necessarily the Chicago burbs, but the concept).

    Where are the fucking police? They are always quick to give you a ticket for riding your bike on the sidewalk, talking on a cellphone or looking at them crosseyed. But don’t expect them to actually be a deterrent presence in your neighborhood. How someone just strolls away, unnoticed, with two big ass grills under their arm is beyond me.

    Anyways, old grill, I will miss you.

    Perhaps you have good karma.

    I just moved into a new apartment and I have a grill, my roommate has a grill, our porch mate (?) has a large grill and two small portable grills. In fact, we are lousy with grills. And, just for the record, these were all legally obtained, as far as I know.

    But having this many grills littering our porch is unsightly, as well as quite an obstacle when I’m running out the door in the morning or stumbling in late at night.

    I’d be willing to part with mine for a song and a dance…. or a 6 pack. You know what… pick it up and it’s yours. It’s a weber and looks a lot like the one in the photo you posted.

    Gina, you ROCK!!!

    Wow, I’m blown away by your generosity. I truly am. Just when I was feeling like living in the city was one indignity after another, here you are to remind me that there ARE good people left in the world!

    I can sing, I can dance and I can pick up the grill. You tell me what your fave beer is and I’ll bring a case with me!

    Gina, you might want to consider that it may not jus t be chance that brought all those grills together in your apartment building.

    You may upset the cosmic continuum by giving one up.
