PM Update: Boerum Hill "Asian Garbage Bag Thief"
Of late I have had a weekly visitor who is a fairly dapper Asian woman. She apparently does not speak English. She enters my yard, rifles my garbage cans and containers. Today she blithely stole a new garbage bag out of one of the cans and toddled away. When I confronted her that I had watched her steal the bag and leave with it, she said, "NO!" evidently thinking that concluded the matter as the bag was now in her possession.We now return to our regular programming.
As I am not one to tangle with middle aged ladies, she won this round. However, has anyone else had to deal with this person and who does one call to get her convinced that A; trespassing is not how we do things here and B; she is not entitled to simply steal whatever she finds convenient to have.
Before I get branded as heartless, I will point out that not only do I organize the returnables so that the derelicts can find them separately from my trash and that of my tenants. Furthermore I organize the bags on the sidewalk so that the sanitation workers can easily see what's what and lift is with a minimum of difficulty.
