#!*^^%! Thieves!

I just finished a great holiday party gig.
Except for the two battery powered up lights that walked off.
Wreaks havoc on the bottom line. >:(

Sorry to hear Dave.  Over the years, I've had a few small things walk away, though, nothing like lighting.

I did a show on Christmas day years ago.

I had just bought a brand new Carver PM1.5 amp and didn't have a chance to rerack the amps in a larger rack-so I set it on top for the show.

The band walked off with it--------------

I would have been MUCH better spending Christmas at home

Yeah-it sucks

Sorry Dave - darn it!

I seem to spend half my strike time placing items where they will be safe from the hands of folks I don't know very well until they are actually in the van. Between Chris and I we do quite well keeping an eye on things - so far!!!

For me it was about five years ago and it was a Presonus 16.0.2 and I am 99% it was the band's "pick up" drummer.

Frankly I don't understand how anyone can take something and then get any enjoyment out of using it. 

How do you become so devoid of basic morality?

People rationalize lots of bad behavior to serve their personal self interest.

We live in a world shifting toward "my truth", unfortunately.  "My truth" is that I need (or deserve) this more than the person I am taking this from.

You can sort of reason why people do certain things.

Like the stagehands who "helped" themselves to a pair of DT770 headphones between FOH and the door while rolling out my mixer. At least I hope they can enjoy the sound quality from a proper pair of headphones, DT770 is a huge step up from the crap passing as "headphones" in most stores these days.

What I'm having a harder time with is the kids in the neighborhood who have decided to use my trailer as a place to practice their art "skills". Not impressed by what they have achieved so far....

From a social science perspective, a person's (many... certainly not all) self-worth and status (especially in the USA), is determined by their possessions.  Unfortunately, their self-worth is the guiding compass for what they determine as acceptable behavior.
