The Gnome Incident…

July 22, 2009

A while ago, my identity was stolen. Luckily, I had already made a copy of it so I could afford to lose it. It’s good to make copies of stuff, because when someone steals a copy, the original owner doesn’t actually lose anything.

It happened like this: A while ago in my apartment builduing, they moved the mailboxes downstairas. Which is a very good thing, because it’s a lot easier on the mailmen. Problem is that the kind of boxes they got in our house are very easy to get into without a key. If you are a person with very small hands, say a gnome or similar, you have no problem breaking into the boxes to steal people’s mail. And that’s obviously what happened to me.

There are several lessons to be learned here:

-It’s good to move mailboxes downstairs, but they should be safe.
-It’s good to copy things, because copies aren’t lost when stolen.
-Gnomes are not to be trusted.
