My brother and I each have small propane grills for an occasional steak or grilled veggies. Mine was my Christmas present to myself. The one time I used it was on Christmas day to make a steak.
Someone stole the regulator and 2 full bottles of gas.
All I could think of was, I wonder who had the opportunity to even know they were there. Mine was hidden behind the stairs and not easily seen unless you've passed it a number of times and happened to notice it.
I'm upset that I no longer have a grill. The regulator costs more to replace than what I paid for the grill. But it was a done deal. It took over an hour to assemble it and I had an option to grill if I wanted to.
So some thief decided to change my life.
It reminds me of the thief we call smoking. We never knew how much it took from us until we stopped letting it.
