I know that it’s happened to all of us at one time or another.
You let someone into your house, and they steal from you.
It could be a friend at a get-together, or a worker you hire to come and perform a service for you. When you invite someone into your home, there is a social contract involved, and so when that lady violates the contract and steals from you, it is shocking and exasperatedting. This happened to me just recently, and I’m still dealing with it. In this case the issue was twofold, because our trust was violated, and I lost our system in the process. It truthfully never occurred to me that it was even possible to steal an system, even the smallest ones are quite dense and heavy! The spare living room in our house used to be a one-car garage, and when it was converted it still wasn’t connected to the central Heating and A/C system. Instead of adding new air ducts to the main system, I decided to buy a window-mounted unit for the room. It was several hundred dollars cheaper to get this kind of A/C unit instead of remastering the air ducts. After this get-together the other night I went into the spare living room, and saw that the system was no longer sitting in the window! The A/C unit had been unblocked from the inside, and then unbolted from the outside, so whoever had taken it was someone at our get-together! That system cost me numerous hundred bucks, and I want it back!
