    Went out to get a load of mulch and notice that someone drove in the opposite side over the week end and helped themselves to about 10-15 yds. off the pile. What really gets me is how many times they had to come back to get that amount :confused: Now the dog has to suffer and sleep outside

    not only the amount of time, but HAND Loading...UUGH....Heck for retail sales that would end up being around $500 in lost inventory....

    That's crazy! Who needs mulch that bad to hand load that amount? And to return who knows how many times? Poor dog!

    Wow - i'd be pissed off.

    Wait and see if they return. (wait with a shotgun or a paintball gun)

    I hate people stealing stuff. We've had stuff stole right from our garage WHILE WE WERE HOME! Most recently someone stole my ipod and headphones that added up to $450! Makes you think about all the people no better than skum living on this god green earth....god almighty. Don't worry they'll get what they deserve - it always ends up that way.

    Hope you find our who took it. Good luck.

    So the poor pooch gets to sleep outside cause you didn't secure the mulch properly? :hammerhead: :nono: what kind of mean owner are you btw :laugh: I think PETA or the SPCA should be brought in on this one!

    Mac, sorry to hear that man. I would be very unhappy as well. I can't believe the nerve that some people have. Oh, btw, pass on my condolences to the pooch(kidding).

    Yeah, send them right over the poor pooch can't tell the difference between them and a thief :laugh: :laugh: If its PETA or SPCA I'm sure they will not care about a vicious dog sleeping outside and if its the thief me and the dog won't care if he has to sleep outside ;) :)

    Geez, it sucks to be your dog:)
    Seriously, stuff like this really pisses me off.
    Maybe you can put the pooch and the mulch in the house and YOU sleep outside?
