Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Two weeks ago, I was walking Luna like normal in the morning.  I usually walk about 1.25 miles (according to the “Distance Measurement Tool” I found on Google Maps)

For your convenience, I’ve marked with yellow all the places Luna marked with yellow.

On this given day, I notice half-way through that there’s a tipped over garbage can, a good half mile away from any houses.  It was half-empty and just on the side of the road.  I thought that was odd.

Later in the day I find out one of our trash cans is missing.  Gone.

Then later I find out other neighbor’s trash cans are missing.  After checking with our trash pickup provider, they said that several cans were reported missing in the area.

Combine this with multiple occasions where we’ve found all the mailboxes on the street opened up at the same time (as in, the mailbox doors are just sitting wide open and no mail inside), I’ve come to the belief that our neighborhood has been targeted by identity thieves.  This has only happened the night before our weekly trash pick-up day.

So my poll to the Internet is thus: what do you think my reaction should be?

  1. Super-passive: not do a thing and try to understand why someone would steal my identity.
  2. Semi-passive: not do a thing and hope the problem goes away.
  3. Self-protective: start shredding my documents, and only put trash can out the morning of trash day instead of night before.
  4. Semi-aggressive: report the violation and seek updates.
  5. Pranksterish: put something really nasty in my trash so the people going through it go “ick!” and decide on new course in life.
  6. Semi-evil: put something dangerous in my trash so the people going through it go “Gah!” and die.
  7. Evil: Put trash out night before, then sit and wait on my property with a shotgun and be prepared to eliminate the problem

tsk tsk
