Heartless Jerks

Heartless Jerks

A sign that caught my eye while out for a drive. I am a sign photographer extraordinaire.

  1. The rotten kid is out a wagon and a bike, which he probably left sitting out unlocked, but those poor jerks don’t have hearts!

    1. A failure of personal responsibility on my part constitutes an extreme ethical challenge on your part. It’s one of those immutable laws of a nature.

  2. You also caught a “No Trespassing” sign in the background. Two signs in one photo. Somehow I think shamings and warnings are lost on the thieving jerks.

    1. Two signs in one shot? It must be some kind of a sign! Yes, I noted the “No Trespassing” sign, too. I thought, “Geez, what kind of animals are we dealing with here?” They were trespassing while stealing.

      I also imagined what they might think if and when they saw the shaming sign. My guess is something along the lines of laughing their asses off.

    1. Humans are the pinnacle of selfishness in biology. Shame is irrelevant.

  4. So, is that for an exhibit? An educational thing?

    1. I understand the raw anger that went into the making of this sign. I can easily empathize. Note the mixed use of font size, ALL CAPS, the #FF0000, and the black stroke for emphasis. We’re talking serious anger here. I get that.

      I thought one point of the sign might be to make the community rise up in response. My first thought was: “I recently got a little extra scrilla. I’ll buy the kid some new shit.” That thought quickly passed. But then I thought about doing a little local organizing to get some used items donated. That feels much more doable. Then I get to rid in wearing my white hat and be the hero for a day. Yeah, that sounds pretty good, pardner.

  5. Read this then put a sign in my front yard:

    Catherine Sherman making me laugh and milk shoot out of my nose.

    1. Nice. Anywhere there’s a sign in be there in spirit to capture it. Photographically speaking, of course.

      She rocks, doesn’t she?

    Wow. I have seen it all now. Not the stealing part. I’ve seen that plenty of times.

    No, I’m surprised by the sign. I am sure the thieves will see it, and they may even feel guilt. But do the parents really believe it will get the stolen possessions back? If they do, they’re very gullible.

    Nonetheless, I hope the heartless bastards have something very precious stolen from them. I know, I shouldn’t wish evil things upon people. I should just let karma take over.

  7. I wonder what it is that thieves won’t steal? Candy from a baby? The piece of a rail system designed to prevent trains from derailing for the recycle value of the copper inside? The dentures of an old man? The Toys for Tots orphan fund? The donation box from a church?

    Just where do thieves draw the line?

  8. Wow…heartless. I thought Zombies stole souls, not kid’s vehicular mobility devices.

    1. I read with no small amount of interest that thieves had struck again. This time a village in Western Turkey woke up to find their bridge gone. The entire bridge. Gone.

      Pulling a stunt like that has long been one of my dreams.

  9. Makes me want to bust out my “Find Them and Kill Them” stamp.

    I’m not sure where that went. I think I lent it to my boss a couple of jobs back.

    1. I could go for a time machine and a sniper rifle. That sign would never need to exist.
