Fish and Christmas Theft

By luther_bendross - 30 December 2008 25

A few weeks ago now I was shopping at Belco markets, purchasing some barramundi for dinner. We got a fair bit, ~$40 worth. I then watched the assistant wrap, package and bag our fish, and reached into my wallet. As I did so, the customer before me managed to pull a swifty and take my bag, leaving me with $6 of mackeral. A mate and I gave chase, however he disappeared into the throngs very quickly. My advice to all is to watch your purchases at the fish markets as you really don’t get your hands on it until you’ve paid. The upside, though, was that an employee saw what happened and subsequently gave us a new cut of barra with some extra thrown in for good measure. And yes, it was tres tasty.

Secondly, to the lowlife scumbag who broke into our house on Christmas Eve: you could’ve at least taken our TV you moron, I needed a replacement.  I hope you were attacked by wasps, you germ.

What’s Your opinion?

And to the punners above, there’s a thread waiting for you, you know the one…

Sheez that’s tough. I’m also quite perplexed as to exactly why someone would steal fish?

I think, for the types of filth who steal, it’s more about just thieving anything.

Don’t you wish you could catch the slimebags in the act. Their christmas would be spent unconscious in a pool of their own blood.

Yup! Couldn’t agree more. Seeing as the justice system continues to be a branch of social services, whose purpose is to mollycoddle the scum of society, it’s about time for natural justice to have a chance at sorting things out.

Sheesh, Astrojax, haven’t you anything better to do than bait us with those cod-awful puns?

astrojax 8:34 am 31 Dec 08

what about the scales of justice, though?

or are you suggesting plod would pike? the poor lads are so overworked, they flounder this time of year and are cast too many red herrings to take everything seriously…

Yep. It’s not like the cops/courts will do anything anyway.

Sure, it’s considered somewhat of a luxury in comparison to mince and chicken but what the heck! Hope your NYE will make up for it.

my better half’s brother had his place broken into xmas eve morning – little scrotes tore open every present under the tree and scarpered with handful of dvd’s and cd’s.

as for the barra, i hope they choked on the bones. very nice, though, of the markets to refill your order – there is a christmas spirit! 😉

Too true, having worked in retail for many years in the past, the christmas scum pop up out of their holes – they even bring their little scummlets with them and go theiving. Too bad putting those bloodlines out of our misery with a bullet to the head is against the law.

I once had my handbag stolen from inside my house on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, just as I was about to head off for the interstate drive. Apart from the usual cash, credit cards and mobile phone, the bag also had medication in it, and a set of rosary beads.
Once the credit cards and phone account were suspended, I wasn’t too worried. I figured karma would catch up with someone who steals rosary beads on Christmas Eve.

Oh no! So sorry to hear that you have had such a crummy week.

bubzie 7:24 pm 30 Dec 08

aww. That’s pretty fishy…

Yep, ’tis the season for scumbags to come out of the woodwork in droves.

Came back to my car after doing some Chrissy shopping at Woden Plaza last week, to discover that my car doors had been popped, the steering column opened up and my ignition dismantled. Thankfully, I have an engine immobiliser, so they didn’t get any further.

But you’re showing restraint, Luther. Personally I wish something a little more terminal on these scabs. ‘Tis the season to be veangeful 😛
