A Purse Thief!!

This morning my son played his game for a while and then he got ready for school. When I got home from dropping him off, I had breakfast and then I had a shower.

Oh, by the way, seems that a lot of people got a good laugh out of my description yesterday of my outside clean-up fiasco…thanks for the comments. I kind of enjoyed writing it…😂 Much more then I enjoyed doing the actual gross work – lol!! Tonight’s post is going to be much less amusing though and likely shorter, because it’s pretty late and I’m tired and feeling pretty nauseous right now ☹️.

After I showered I had to pick up my daughter from school, because she had a neurologist appointment in the city at noon. We quickly came home and dropped off her stuff and then drove downtown to the Allin Clinic. The dr talked to her about her headaches, as usual. She wants to do a breathing test to see if she has asthma, even if it’s mild asthma. My daughter had this test last year, but the results came back inconclusive, so I guess that we are going to try again.

After the appointment, we drove to the Ardenes at Capilano Mall and I got her a couple pairs of cheap shoes that she wanted and so desperately needed. The shoes that she was wearing all the time had holes in the bottom and had worn through on top as well. Then we went into the Winners and I bought a small gift for her friend’s birthday that is tonight and she used her for Winners gift card and a bit of her money that was in her bank to buy herself a cute, little backpack. Afterwards, we drove back to Beaumont. We stopped at the Shoppers and bought her friend a card. The card we picked was so funny that we were literally laughing out loud in the store! It was hilarious!! We drove home from there. My oldest daughter was there with my son. My hubby had gone out with his friend. My oldest daughter was feeling a bit better today in comparison to yesterday. The swelling had already gone down a bit. Also the T3’s were helping with the pain. The antibiotics are hard on her tummy. So she was feeling pretty nauseated most of the day. Her boss sent her home at 1:00pm, instead of at 3:15pm. She still went in at 6:45am. She wanted me to go pick up her nasal spray and to get her a booster juice and my hubby said I should get the kids what they wanted…not that we had any money!? So, I got my son A&W and my daughter wanted Subway. My younger daughter came with me. We got the things at Shoppers first, then went to booster juice.

When we pulled up to the Booster Juice my daughter was looking at something strangely as I shut off the van and started to grab my purse. Then she said “Mom, look, mom!!” I looked in the direction that she was nodding her head and there was a younger man standing by a garbage can, wearing gloves, going through someone’s purse and throwing out what looked like someone’s ID. It looked really obviously to both of us that he had stolen it and was getting rid of what looked like ID or something and other things that he wasn’t interested in. We tried not to stare, but he was so close to us that we also didn’t want to get out of the van right then while he was so obviously doing that, right in front of us! There was another man walking by who clearly saw what he was doing as well and we could see that he was trying to decide if he should do something or not. He literally walked back and forth past him 3 times!! Then he just walked away and into BP’s. Finally the man with the purse took off in the direction of the CIBC. My daughter and I went inside the Booster Juice and got our order. Then, when we came out, instead of getting into the van, we causally walked past the garbage can and looked into it, to see if we could see anything like maybe someone’s ID or something. The garbage wasn’t near the top, so we couldn’t reach anything, but we could clearly see a pair of black, rubber gloves that he had obviously tossed inside the garbage can once he had finished and moved on. We think he probably took the purse from an unlocked vehicle in the parking lot, and wore the gloves while doing so. If there was anything important, it had slipped farther into the garbage… We got back into the van. Got the rest of the food then drove home.

When we got home, I called the Beaumont RCMP (not the 911 line, just the town complaint line) to report what we saw. I told them what time it happened and which garbage can and what he was wearing, etc. They wrote it all down. I wasn’t sure if they were going to take it seriously, but about 5 minutes later a Constable called me from the exact location to ask me a couple more questions. About which direction he went and if he was alone. He said they were going to search the garbage can (my daughter and I certainly hope that they find more then garbage – lol) and then probably drive around a bit looking for him, since he was on foot!

Once I got off the phone, I drove my daughter to her friend’s birthday. Then my oldest daughter and I watched the first couple of episodes of The Queer Eye…they were fabulous!! How I love this show!!!! It is such a feel good show and both episodes made me cry…😢😢 Then we all watched a couple funny YouTube videos. I got my son into bed. I went on my phone. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Night All! 💤😴
