I'm officially old....

Tonight as I was sitting at my desk, I noticed a few teenagers walking through our parking lot.  One of them stopped by our neighbor's fire pit and started pulling on pieces of it.  I was thinking "What the heck is that stupid kid doing?"  Next thing I know he had a slab of the firepit (like a piece of slate) in his hand and he was walking away with it.  I wasn't sure what to do because I knew if I went out to yell at them, they'd be gone by the time I got out there.  So instead, I started knocking loudly on the window and pointing at them.  A couple of the kids heard me and said something to the stupid kid.  By that time they had walked behind a parked SUV and I couldn't see them anymore.  The kid must have dropped the piece though because he wasn't carrying it anymore when they came back into view.  I haven't gone out to see though.  I figure as soon as I go out there to put it back my neighbor will drive up and wonder what the heck I'm doing with her firepit.  And, she's a cop.  So is her boyfriend.

My name is Nichole.  Otherwise known as the old lady who raps on the window if you're being naughty.
