Low blow

July 1, 2006


To the editor:

To the person that stole my bicycle Thursday:

It's pretty cold-hearted to steal a bike on one of the hottest days so far this year. What really gets me is that there's someone out there willing to steal a bike from behind Wendy's. Obviously, if I'm riding a bicycle to my fast food job, I don't have much money. I was waiting for my pay on Friday so I could buy a lock. Now I don't have a bike to defend.

I'll be walking to Wendy's, so maybe, after a few months of scrimping and saving, I'll be able to get another bike. Perhaps you could just drop my bike back off where you found it. I'd even buy you a junior bacon cheeseburger to get it back.

The person could have walked in and possibly gotten a job and they wouldn't have needed to steal my bike. Save and buy your own.

I wonder how long it will take before somebody gives this woman a new bike. Any takers??

She can have mine. Better she rides it to work than it hangs in my garage.

Why don't we all hate just a little more. IS this what this world is coming too? Someone has their only way to work taken and everyone makes a joke. What happen to compasion? I guess you all are rich enough you don't need a bike, so sad that you can't even feel a little sorry for her.

I agree. At elast she is out there working or a living and not just taking like alot of other people in this world. I can't believe people would be so cruel as to think it is funny or worth the poor jokes. I would rather have someone get her a bike then have to keep paying for healthy ones to collect welfare. I have worked for SRS and see just how many lazy people their are that want everything for free.

low is low, I have had bikes stolen from my girls many of times, now I know it is not other little girls stealing them so does the guys stealing the bikes enjoy riding little gitl bikes:) but this is a low blow for someone trying to just get by and save so hope they get the person.
