Not a very Happy Mother’s Day for letter contributor after lights go missing

Dear Editor;
Happy Mother’s Day to Me…
Sometime late May 9th or early May 10th someone decided to help himself to my solar lights; eight of them to be exact. It really is a shame that people can no longer take pride in their property for fear of either theft or vandalism.

Dear Editor;

Happy Mother’s Day to Me…

Sometime late May 9th or early May 10th someone decided to help himself to my solar lights; eight of them to be exact. It really is a shame that people can no longer take pride in their property for fear of either theft or vandalism. It isn’t even the theft of material items that bothers me the most- it is the violation. To think that my family was sleeping only mere metres away from this selfish, cowardice act absolutely sickens me.

But perhaps the lights were taken to be given as a Mother’s Day gift…how nice of you to want to give the person who brought you into this world a stolen gift. If that is indeed the case, then maybe the mother would like the spikes that hold up the lights. It would seem that in the haste of the ‘robbery’ the spikes were left behind. They are of no use to me now so if you are a mother who received a nice set of glass and stainless solar lights for Mother’s Day that are missing the ground spikes, then perhaps you would like to contact me and we can make some sort of arrangement.

To add to my rant I would also like to address the person or persons who feel the need to ring my grandmother’s doorbell in the middle of the night. Shame on you for finding amusement in frightening and disturbing the sleep of an 84-year old woman. If you are young people, I suggest you look into a new hobby; something that contributes to your community, rather than devalue it.

I came across a quote that I felt quite fitting: “Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners”. – Laurence Sterne.

Both your morals and manners could use some work!

Sincerely,

Robyn McIntyre
