I had occasion to talk to a former thief this morning.  He needed to steal to afford his drug addiction.  He had a lot of little tricks. He dove into charity donation bins and pulled out electronics to trade for drugs.  He went to hotels and told the front desk person that he had left his phone behind and when they pulled out the lost and found box, he picked a good one and said, “Yes, there it is.’

He aslo used to steal bikes.  I told him not to steal mine.  He offered me bike theft “insurance”! Ha!

It isn’t a life I would choose but it must have been a little fun being high (you’d HAVE to be on something to have the nerve to do these things) and running around at night on a treasure hunt.

I get a pretty good high trying to find things


About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
