we also leave our shoes outside on a shoe rack.

So far nothing stolen, but occasionally we get workmen wandering the floors.

My mother-in-law noticed one particular workman walking back and forth, with nothing in hand, who kept checking out my shiny pair of shoes each time he walked past.

Not wanting to take any chances, from that day onwards we covered all our shoes with a rag

It happens that ppl act like this when they are just waiting for some reason and got attracted by something where they know they can not satisfy their curiosity by taking it directly to their hands :). I've seen it many times and nothing got stolen. Of course better be safe than sorry.

It's a very strange world we live in, and when you see dogs mounting each other and grabbing the leg of someone walking past and cows mounting each other, in the fields, what does it tell you about humans? No it's not the milk!

I used to collect stamps, coins and cigarette packets at 12/13 a young age, the perv the same age collected underwear, we only found out because he was caught.

Look at Monk on the TV series very funny, but i do know someone just like him, though she is a female. I'm not surprised of human behaviour any longer, though I often think to myself why unusual habits are not easy to break. Though very entertaining for our creator!

What's the definition of noise? Two skeletons playing with their toys in a biscuit tin! :lol: That was my 5 seconds of enjoyment this week, to make someone smile :lol: the rest of the time i make them cry! Only kidding

You gotta admit though, sarcasm or not, we give good info. At the end of the day, that's what matters. Anyway, if you're doing a stint in Asia, it helps to have a "shell" rather than "thick skin". Thin skinned? fergeddit! :cool:
