When we got back from our trip to Kentucky, we found a note from our neighbor stating that she had caught some kid trying to steal our outgoing mail. Specifically the check for our water bill. We went to go get the check and the story from our neighbor and sure enough there was our shredded bill and crumpled check.

She said that she saw a kid, who was with the cleaning guy, throwing the bill in the trash. Thinking it was her bill she yelled at the kid and threatened to call the police if he didn't give the check back. Now here's the part that I don't understand. What was some 13 year old kid going to do with a check to the water company? Chew on it? Try and pass himself off as a representative of the company? Frame and brag about his heist? I don't really get it.

Anyway I explained what happened to the apartment complex office and they said that the guy described isn't from their cleaning company. GREAT! I feel so safe now.

This kind of thing would never happen in Kentucky. That's God's country.
