Yes, I'm a tad upset.
My husband went fishing today.
No, that's not why I'm upset.
He took a friend with him.
That's not the reason either.
He launched the boat around 8 am, spent the day on the lake and then around 2 pm he went to get his truck.
His brand new truck.
And the tail gate was gone.
What the what???
Yes, someone had stolen his tail gate right off his truck.
He filed a report with the sheriff who told him that this is quite common.
He said he writes about 20-30 reports a week on stolen tail gates.
Who would have thought such a thing?
I guess, it requires no tools to remove, takes someone about 10 seconds to take it off and they are very heavy so they are worth quite a bit as scrap metal.
Our beautiful tail gate is going to be scrap metal.
Tail gates are also expensive.
It's going to cost around $1400 to replace it.
Yes, we have insurance, but our deductible is $1000.
So, tonight I am mad at the stealing people.
I'm going to eat cookies now.
