Freehold - can you get a replacement bike for your transportation needs in the meanwhile?

no.

We need more public transportation especially in rural areas. I can't even get a taxi where I live without waiting half an hour for them to drive out from the city and let me tell you that's expensive.

Need more monorails and monorail type things.

If I could not own a car I would.

Sorry to hear about your healthcare tsuris, Van.

Sorry to hear about the bike theft, Freehold.

Have a quesadilla each, if it'd help.

Damn. I wish I could say that they catch the culprit and get your bike back,but if they could, probably it wouldn't have gotten stolen in the first place. It's more of those incompetent cops.

I suggest vigilantism but I've been told in the past that is the wrong advice so do as you will. (wear a mask.)

Hope you both find a new ride, and (a bit more doubtfully) get the bike-snatcher feet put to the fire.
I wish I could help somehow, but the best I can do is throw a few bucks your way for at replacement...and sorry I know that doesn't replace the sentimentality of the old bike, nor relieve the stress of having it stolen.

Well that's one way of getting into TTRPGs, you don't hear about often. Then again I have no idea what your average coven does on ritual days/nights, so maybe its common enough.
Sounds interesting though.
Though, I feel slightly bummed out about the lack of nude-forest-clearing-frolicking and shroom-munching…
;P

Apparently some covens are into ritual sex, but Mrs Sunrise's is very conventional. So sexy stuff is purely metaphorical, like dancing around the maypole at Beltane.

And some bawdy joking, but that's just people.

** spoiler omitted **

Bawdy jokes, I can do.

Also downright filthy and questionable ones, but I've been holding back on those…different tastes an all that.

Lots and lots of swearing. Unbelievable amounts of swearing.

That's terrible!

I would look into legal recourses if its possible, but I likewise understand I you two want to focus on getting Aiymi back to her health self…
Its just frustrating to hear about muck ups like this.
Give Aiymi a hug from a stranger, and give yourself one while your at it.

Wasn't their like a tv special a while back that perfectly explained that crop circles where these two guys with metal poles and ropes pushing the grass down?

Sort of.

Two British guys admitted that they'd been doing it in the U.K., then on video demonstrated creating perfect crop circles including all the stuff that the E.T. conspiracy theorists insisted "couldn't have been done by a human being".

So of course the E.T. conspiracy theorists just switched over to, "They saw the crop circles and mimicked them; they didn't invent them!"

Typical conspiracy theory: Explain away anything that contradicts your narrative.

One of the most frustrating aspects of the human psyche, I must admit.

I sense they're trying to wiggle out of their responsibility of paying for the whole thing and you really need to fight with them, getting the hospital in question to give the exact reason on why you had Ayimi going to hospital.

Trying to wiggle out of a contract already signed,I seriously disapprove off. Take out your insurance policy and start arguing with them.

State which hospitals were in the contract you signed, then get the hospital to give the correct reason on why you sent Ayimi to hospital and get them to cough up.

Edit: your insurance company is a B@stard.

*claws extend, and growly noise comes out*

Yep, and sadly, this is basically standard practice in American healthcare. Any time you have a major health issue the first thing the insurance company does is a blanket denial of coverage for thinly veiled BS reasons just to see if they can get away with it.

I'd go on a long, politically-charged tirade, but the short version is, "Whenever there's a profit motive, people will get hurt."

Whether it's for-profit health care, for-profit prisons, for-profit housing, or what-have-you, greed will win over compassion or duty every single time.

The plus side to working on a busy golf course.

Whoever poured the concrete at our job really screwed us when they measured out where our fire pit is going to go.

Furthermore, if you're living in a gated community in an exclusive golf course, wouldn't you spend the extra few grand and have us put in pavers rather than cement, just saying.

Not surprised unless you had a $4000+ custom racing bike made of carbon fiber and had the serial number.

So of course, since the perp knows that the cops aren't going to do anything over a stolen bike, there's zero reason for the perp to stop stealing bikes.

WTAF?

Do you have renters insurance? I don't even know if it would cover something like this.
Maybe the thief is stupid enough to try to Craigslist it?

Wow... you haven't encountered much crime in high-density urban areas, have you?

But your advice is solid. The Portuguese Tornado ran a clothing shop on Piedmont avenue. They were routinely robbed. After each robbery, she'd go to the weekend flea market, spot the person selling her stuff, and call the cops.

She had an amazing return rate; well over 50%.

So yes, Freehold, searching Craigslist (or whatever they use in NY) for your bike, then calling the cops once you have a perp is a great idea, and has a surprisingly good chance of working.

Barring that, however, Vanykrye's description is accurate: The bike wasn't worth enough to merit a full investigation, so the police aren't going to do diddly-squat unless Freehold fingers the perp for them.

In high-density areas, you are your own best investigator.

The building has cameras. Lets see if we can find anything out that way.

And in rural areas* nobody steals a bicycle unless it's a kid stealing it from another kid. In those cases it's usually just a matter of the parent calling the other parent and saying, "Hey, did Brad leave his bike over at your place, by chance? He knows he left it a friend's, but just can't remember for sure which one." Then you eventually find the bike, reclaim it, and the kid who stole the bike doesn't get to hang out at your place for 6 months or so.

*Again, actual rural areas. Cities of 100,000 population that happen to be surrounded by corn fields do not qualify for this description.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Already checking craigslist. We will see what happens.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It's funny; I actually prefer the police's open-and-honest, "Yeah, we're not going to investigate this, so your bike is just gone," over modern medical care's, "Well, we can't say what you've got 100% for certain, so we're not even going to hypothesize as to what it could possibly be, nor tell you you're going to be OK, or otherwise commit to anything other than a complete lack of information until we can say something we're insured for."


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Oh, and speaking of renter's insurance, it DOES cover such things, but usually if you're a renter you've taken the $1000 to get the nice low rates so unless Freehold had a Pee Wee Herman-class bike, the deductible is more than the value of the bike.
