Not To Be Rude, But...

I think someone should steal Michelle's bike (again). Not in a mean way, though. I just think it's high time this debutante learns a thing or two about responsibility. She bought this neat bike. It's an old ten speed. It's not that neat, but it gets the job done. And she has replaced and repaired the tires AND tubes a couple times now. So you'd think she'd be invested in her bike. Not so.

She's too lazy to go buy a bike lock. Do you want to know what she's doing right now? She's taking a nap on the couch. Do you want to know where her bike is right now? It's sitting in our tiny living room. But most of the time lately it's been sitting outside our apartment. She leans it up against Allison's bike, which is locked up. Michelle's theory is that robbers are too dumb to look closely and notice that the bikes aren't actually locked up together.

But I beg to differ. Although robbers are dumb (like stealing MY crappy old laptop for meth money), they are actually quite resourceful, and when they see something they want, they go for it. Even to the extent that they might look closely enough to see that the bike isn't locked.

Sometimes I wish Michelle had this same level of ambition as meth addicted robbers have. Instead, she idly sits on our sofa. Sleeping the day away. Probably hoping for new material for her dream blog.

When I had a cool bike, but no lock, I used a piece of rope. I tied the front wheel to the frame, so the bike couldn't move. It was very effective. Nobody ever stole my bike.

If i was there I would steal her bike just to teach her a lesson and somehow I want to hire the guy from arrested development who only has one hand to also be involved with me teaching her a lesson.

What the hell is Michelle thinking? Idiot.
