#100 Word Wednesday — Lost and Found

5D76C7DD-6D1D-4B86-AFE2-D20414FF105EPat’s bike had been stolen two days earlier. He posted a picture of it on Craigslist, asking if anyone had seen it. An anonymous responder got back to Pat, pinpointing the location of the stolen bike. The responder also advised Pat to bring a hacksaw.

Pat went to the location and there it was, locked to iron bars with a u-bolt, next to a graffiti-covered wall in an alley.

Pat began hacking through the u-bolt so that he could take his stolen bike back. Too bad for him that a cop came around while he was sawing off the bolt.

    But after spending $5,000.00 on a good lawyer and court fees, Pat’s record was washed clean. He later hocked the bike for $25 to buy diapers and formula.
