Nine days ago. I was at one of the long-term acute care hospitals that we use, in a fairly blue collar neighborhood of the Inland Empire, and I was walking along in my doctor coat behind three rather scruffy, unwashed men. They paid no attention to me, and apparently had no idea how loudly they were actually speaking.

I paid them little attention until one of them said: "I stole a car once where the back seat was filled with dildos! When I saw that, I dumped the car and ran. I mean, what if I got caught? I didn't want to get caught with all that in the car? What would the guys say?"

What indeed?

There were three of them, and one of me, and the corridor was otherwise empty. I decided that discretion was advisable.

I'm sure that you'd have found it just as disconcerting.

I'm sure that to the perpetrator, it wasn't a laughing matter...

Honestly, it's amazing what you hear and see if you pay attention to this world we live in.

Yes, but if you store your collection in the car, it won't be at hand when needed. Unless you use your back seat in the vehicle for more personal uses...

LOL... Welcome to the Inland Empire... don't park your carload of dildos in an inappropriate easy-stealin' place...

We have a friend whose car that could've been - among other places, she's worked for a manufacturer of (high-quality versions of) such items, and was known to have boxes of factory seconds sitting around her place, which she would give as gifts at the slightest opportunity.

I can see why you'd say that. However, very very scruffy/dirty/disheveled...

They're usually reasonably clean by the time I've seen them in the hospital...

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
