I was raised on a little farm up in NEBRASKA.I was tought if it don`t belong to you, DON`T TOUCH IT.You know if everyone followed that rule, just how nice this world would be to live in.I can remember we lived about 6 miles from town.right beside a fairly traveled hwy.We left one time for a week and never locked the door.And didn`t even worry about it.I wished it was like that now,but those days a long gone and will never ever return.now days everyones out to see what they can get away with before they get caught.mazeing what just 50 short years does.

yeah it happen nowadays people are quite different than before. we can trust anybody specially things in home. how wonderful the world if people are satisfied with all his/her belongings. no need to steal things of other people. all people have their own items, she/he can get what they want. no need to buy because it is available anytime. i am waiting this world that will happen soon.

Gee, I thought that I was the only one noticing that those days are long gone. I had my daughter, son in law, his uncle and my two grand daughters stay with me for 9 months and the girls couldn't stay out of my belongings. I ended up having to pack the things I wanted safe in containers and hiding them under my house. As it is I have found that I have things that they liberated when they moved out. It's almost a daily occurrence that I find things missing and realize that they left with my grand daughters (they're 10 and 13). Then I have had neighbors that found that my freezer was a wonderful source of food for their own use. We even had other neighbors stop by exclaiming about the wonderful meal that they had at one of the family's homes-that didn't have people over for dinner. And the meal served...leg of lamb from our freezer! I've given up on the old values. I just figure that people will eventually receive what they do in kind. But it's nice to hear from someone else that has realized that the old values are gone.

Yes it is sad that no-one can be trusted now. People often think they can get away with something, so they do it, knowing it is wrong. Fewer people seem to be honest or respectful, but there are still good honest people around. Unfortunately if you are a trusting person you will probably be taken advantage of by someone who is not honest.
