Is anything safe from theft these days?
Things disappear in Hoboken!
One Hoboken411 reader sent this in a few weeks ago, having found it humorous.
It definitely seems to typify the state of affairs at times, in this City where manhole covers go missing and people remarkably take almost any “junk” you leave outside. In this case, I guess their motives are curious. Maybe their lid kept ending up on a neighbor’s can, blowing away, getting stolen, or even drifting away in a flood or water main break.
The moral of the story truly is: when you have anything of value in Hoboken, and leave it outside, you gotta lock it up!
