On moving day, this police officer rolled up my carpet and took it to his truck while I was watching. Told him to put it back. He did, apologizing.
When I came back to next day to lay the carpet - it was gone again. Couldn’t believe a COP would also steal. But then he’s not ANY cop.
From time to time, tenants offering to pay by cash would say, “Look, you don’t have to report it”.
Remembering what happend to our friend, I would respond with indignation, “Sorry, I don’t beleive in cheating on my taxes. I report everything, which is why I want a money order. If you or your boss are cheating, its not my business.”
I don’t think anyone’s trying to make trouble for me after having said that.
