We hate to make light of theft, but this man’s reaction to his stolen Amazon.com package is priceless.

Tim Lake of Phoenix, Ariz., discovered that his Amazon.com package was stolen from his front porch, and now he’s pulling out all the stops in search of the thief. He’s posted signs around his neighborhood and even spoken to his local TV news station about the crime.

A blond woman is captured on video snatching the package from Lake’s house.

“You always see victims on TV, but you never think you’re going to be one,” Lake told Phoenix’s CBS 5.

He even breaks into tears during the interview, especially when he recounts the package items:

“Ice trays that make, like, perfectly square ice cubes. For like, cocktails. Or even (breaks into tears) — now that I think about it — iced coffee. I could’ve made iced coffee with those things.”

Lake has some simple words for the thief, which may or may not be inspired by Liam Neeson in the movie “Taken”:

“I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. But I will look for you. I will find you, and I will convict you.”

I don't blame this man one bit it doesn't matter the value of  what this thief took its the principal. She had no right to take those ice trays they didn't belong to her. Find her and prosecute her no matter how petty it seems. If she was here in Florida the man could have stood his ground. You can read between the lines. Think of that the next time you have the audacity to steal something that doesn't belong to you.

Pretty typical woman. Thinks the world owes them a living and they can just take whatever they please from whoever they please.

To the one that want's the Lord to forgive the thief: May many thieves bless you, and steal you "blind", and you never cast a stone at them. 

   A thief is a thief ! ! !  Nothing less... Still, in some countries in the mid-east, when a thief is caught and prosecuted, his right hand is lopped-off...  Maybe we should adopt some of those "Old World Values" in America! 

   (I still prefer shooting them, though---An arrow through the leg or shoulder seems to work very well!)

May the Good Lord forgive the thief and the man who threw too many stones at her.

    In September, I'll turn 38. I'm at the age now where, when people ask how old I am, it takes me a minute to remember. I don't know if that's because I've already been 37 different ages and it's hard to keep straight which one I am now, or if it's because I'm in denial, or if it's because I am going senile. Maybe a combination of all of the above. Regardless, my 30s have flown by and soon they will be but a memory. So, in an effort to preserve the memory I have left (or at least keep a record of it), and to celebrate what has been an amazing decade so far, here are 30 things that have happened to me in my 30s (and will probably happen to you too):
