Crimewatch UK

A friend told me a story about trying to throw away his old fridge.

He said every night he’d put the old fridge out with his rubbish but the dustbin man wouldn’t take it. He would empty the bin and take away the plastic bags but he wouldn’t touch the old fridge.

So my friend bought a small chain and a cheap padlock, chained the old fridge to his fence and two hours later it was gone.

He said, “If you want to get rid of something, treat it like its valuable, chain it up and it’s guaranteed to be stolen”.

Well, I’m afraid to say that’s not true.
It doesn’t work.
Because I chained my Grandad to our fence two weeks ago and he’s still there - - almost.
