My beautiful little macadamia tree lasted six months. I went to check on it tonight only to discover that SOME BASTARD STOLE IT in the past 24 hours. Yep. They dug it right up out of its hole in the footpath. I WAS LIVID. I went down to see Michael on the off-chance he maybe transplanted it somewhere else, but he didn’t. He had some choice expletives for the kind of people who steal trees. He told me not to give up, that he had more trees with stakes and mesh. We’re gonna replant, and they’re not gonna steal the new one. I know he’s right, but man, I really just want to give up. Sometimes the rest of humanity just sucks, you know? And they don’t deserve my trees.

  1. 6 months was waaaaaay longer than I thought it would last but still…. bastards!

    It’s not like they cost the fricking earth either. Cheap bastards. They better look after it!

    I completely understand you’re shaken faith. People are bastards.

  2. Sandra had two separate azaleas stolen from her front garden in Lilyfield, They opened the gate, went in and dug them up. And they’re not very expensive either. People are so weird!

  3. Not only is that really jerky, but don’t they realise they risk killing the tree?! What dumbasses.

  4. Who steals a tree? I mean, seriously, people- a tree!
