    Today I was mowing a commercial property that is situated far from the road and only has one way to get in and out. Not too many people coming and going. Left my truck unlocked. Someone cut the lock cable and stole my Redmax backpack. He must've been blind too because he took two pairs of eye glasses and a pair of binocliars. Who the heck steals glasses?

    I had a real nice gas can but he didn't take it. Maybe he couldn't see it. You gotta be careful over here in the Dotte.

    Nexttime you go in there take an old gas can and fill it up with gas/sugar/ ....
    then accidently leave it on your trailer for easy access and let steal it. Teach them a leson when their car blows up. lol

    just get an old can and put water in it. They'll never know the difference between the gas and the water.

    And make sure you write "93 Octane" on the can to make it more appealing.
