Talk about a brazen thief.
Today my son walked out of school and saw HIS BIKE on the bike rack at his school! WITH the lock still dangling around the body.
He called me so I could come pick him up as the brakes are messed up.
His school has an afterschool program so whoever rode that bike to his school today was probably still in there. I wanted to go in and ask, loudly, "hey, does anyone here have a gold bike out in the bike rack?" -- thinking someone would be stupid enough to say, "yeah, that's mine."
But the school secretary wouldn't let me. Sigh. So I told her to keep her ears open for anyone complaining about someone having stolen "their" bike.
So, son is happy, lessons learned.
1. Put the lock THROUGH the body AND wheels.
2. Use the bike rack, not a pole that can be knocked over.
Smiles all around!
