i just evicted our renters. it was a different kind of theft, but rather than go to court for the eviction i gave them the option of just leaving and not paying what they owed. probably would have cost me as much to file, wait, and then evict, as to let them walk. i don't understand people not paying their bills!
while the carpet guy was there today doing the estimate, he told us that he'd had a whole spool of wire stolen from his garage.
