Front Yard Fruit Thief!

I just couldn’t believe what happened today. My neighbor, just next door, has a beautiful pear tree growing close to the edge of our street on his side of our property line. A strange woman pulled up in front today and asked DH, who was standing on our lawn, "Is this your tree?" He said "No, it’s his." and pointed to our neighbor’s house.

She said, "I want some pears. Is he home?" DH said "Not sure." So she got out of her car and picked pears off his tree and left!!!! DH couldn’t believe it, came inside and told me.

DH didn’t confront her but I wish I’d been out there when she did it. I would have given her what for. I can’t BELIEVE that. And I JUST got a new fruit tree I was planning to put in the front yard. I can’t believe she thought NOTHING of stealing his fruit. I don’t have a problem sharing, but that sense of ENTITLEMENT and blatant STEALING is just awful. I feel like posting signs "For Your Eyes Only… Hands Off!" or "Please Ask, Don’t Take"

Then again… I didn’t take the photo of the pear I included in this post. Eek! I’m just as bad…
