Mrs LJ has called me at work in right old tizz, saying she’s just done something stupid. She’s just got back from walking into town with the pushchair to realise she left the garage door wide open. All five bikes and my snowboard are apparently still there, so it looks as though we may have got away with it. I’m conscious though, as its a busy through road anyone passing will now know it’s full of scrote treasure. I may have to spend tonight in there armed with bombers.Posted 4 years agooliverd1981Member
Back in the day my mum left the garage door open for about 10 minutes and my brothers beloved LTS DH disappered.
Not much later I left my Schwinn cruiser in the back of the garage – and she reversed into it. I bent the radiator nearly double but the Schwinn and the Xantia were pretty much unfazed.Posted 4 years agodunerMember
I live in a rough part of Manchester, one morning came downstairs and noticed my bike was missing. Starting shitting myself that the house had been broken into overnight, opened the front door to check the lock and there it was lent against the fence where I left it at 6pm the previous night! My neighbour opposite who was standing in his doorway having his morning cig just nodded and said ‘that was lucky’!Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
Done similar – off out with the family but had to run back into the garage for something. Head off and return 6 hours later – garage wide open with my bikes sitting there not locked.Posted 4 years ago
This was in Manchester, but balancing that was also a cul-de-sac, so passing scallies at a minimum.souldrummerMember
Have done similar; when I was moving my lodger to her new place I left my front door open for about 2 hours; nothing taken. Another time the band had been rehearsing at mine and we thought we had loaded all the gear into the cars; next morning my neighbour handed me a guitar case with v expensive guitar still in it which he had found ouside mine when he was taking his dog for an early morning walk.Posted 4 years agoimnotamusedMember
I took a boxed frame out of my front door and into the car in heavy rain one Saturday morning. Drove to the post office and came back home to find I’d left my front door wide open! Fortunately it seems that burgers are deterred by houses with front doors left wide open…Posted 4 years ago
