Dear locker room thief

First, let me explain to you the value of a few things: Garmin Forerunner 205 - approximately $200 (although I paid more) Custom made Claddagh ring with birthstone- about $275 Lululemon gym bag - approximately $70 Goodlife membership card - $25 to replace herbal essences shampoo - $2.99 with all of those things available to you, WHY THE HELL YOU CHOSE TO STEAL MY SHAMPOO IS BEYOND ME!!!! I know I am an idiot for leaving my gym bag out and unlocked, but I have the presence of mind to take my important items and store them away for safe keeping. but really?! my shampoo???? they give it away for free in the shower already! do you have curly hair too? because that's what it was meant for, not that it really matters...and why not my bath & body works grapefruit body wash too?? I would think that would have been more coveted but I guess stealing ALL of my products would have been obvious. I just don't understand the value of stealing something that is easily obtainable about 100 yards away in the pharma plus but you instead decided to invade my privacy and root through my personal belongings. I also appreciate that you were clever enough not to zip my bag back up so that I noticed right away before I had a chance to get changed for a shower. My TTC companions thank you too. I typed this on the subway and no one would sit next to my unwashed behind all of the way home. Looks like I'll be needing a smaller gym bag and shampoo that doesn't smell so damn good.

Are you serious? That's insane....they took your freaking shampoo? There was a notice in my gym's locker room this morning about a wallet that was stolen on the weekend. Seriously...what the hell? Honestly, that's so sad...

katieo said...

LOL! Ok, I started reading this and was like, "ohno. oh. no. PLEASE no. not the garmin, not the ring...(etc.)"

but the shampoo? gotta love it. (well you don't have to, but I think it's hilarious)

Lameeeeeeeeeeeeee...I'm so glad they didn't take your Lulu bag though ;o)

Izzy said...

BOURNS to shampoo thieves. Maybe they had really dirty curly hair?

SERIOUSLY!?!?!

Were you at the Y&F Goodlife?

I've had things swiped from gym bags at Manulife but not from Y&F - perhaps people up north are more trustworthy.

You heading to the gym after work? I'm toying with the idea of a lunch time workout but, we'll see.

Hey Sally! :)

Yup! It was Y&F!! I left my bag in the back, left hand corner by the massage room and came back to find it opened up.

I always lock up my purse but usually leave out my coat except for yesterday. For some odd reason I put it in the locker too. Good thing I did otherwise my metropass could have gone walking too!

Not going to the gym today because I have a chiro appt & a family dinner but I'll probably see you there next week :)

Oh my f*ck, that is RIDICULOUS! lol. Wow, the mentality of some people, haha.

Jen said...

I was the same as Katieo...when I started reading I thought they took all of it!!!

That's ridiculous...maybe someone just really likes your natural odor and didn't want you to shower ;p

Some days I think my obsessiveness about locking up EVERYTHING including my car doors at all times, even while I'm driving down the street in case a car jacker tries to jump in, is a curse. Then, on days like this, I think it's a good thing. Sure I get stares from people at my gym because they never lock their stuff up and I lock up everything even if I'm just stepping away for a minute to pee, but I don't care. My stuff is MINE and they can't have it.

Get a good lock. Sadly, I think you are going to need it.

marie said...

Uh...I have a lock.

I lock up most of my stuff.

Issue is the lockers are TINY and I can only fit half of it inside.

That's why I leave the bag with non-essentials on the outside.

The issue is I didn't realize my GARMIN was in there until AFTER. I obviously didn't check it well after going to RR the other night and my rings are so small that no one would notice them in there.

The point is WHO STEALS SHAMPOO?!

Heather said...

LMAO.... girl you are too funny. I can't wait until I get the chance to meet you in person b/c I think our personalities would mesh...lol

marie said...

DUDE - come to TO! Any of you! Seriously :P

Sara said...

well thank god it was just your shampoo b/c at first I thought it was everything and my heart sunk at the ring. So I'm glad that was stolen!!

But still total weirdos attend that gym!!

marie said...

I know. The ring is really priceless to me and I would have died if it was gone.

But really...

If I was her, I would have taken the bathy & body works body wash.

It costs triple the amount of the shampoo and smells freakin' amazing.

stupid bitch.

whats the skinny said...

yo. is this person for real?? i always say, if you're gonna steal, at least make it worth it. who wants to go to hell over $3?

maybe she thought the B&BW wash would smell so good that you would smell her as she was leaving...and then "ah theif, i've caught you red handed!...er, uh, smelling good anyway?"

at least, just use the damn shampoo and put it back?

Angie All The Way said...

OMG I started freaking out at first when I thought they had stolen your ring (and the Garmin etc. too).

WTF!

Sonya said...

First reaction was OH NO...than THANK GOD.

It's crazy someone stole your shampoo...like really...come on now, but thank goodness, it wasn't your other stuff.

btw...I love and use that grapefruit body wash too!
