Michele Boudreaux set out a box of treats for delivery drivers who are working hard this Christmas season. The local wildlife noticed, and a squirrel decided the box was fair game. Boudreaux tells the story of the thieving squirrel at her blog.
On Monday, I put out this year’s treat table and—NO JOKE—within a few hours, ALL the Ghirardelli chocolate squares were gone. I couldn’t believe it. Why would someone do such a thing? And why would they take the most expensive chocolate on the tray? Why not rob us blind of all the Reese’s and Mini Snickers since I can’t seem to stop eating them because holy crap, trash candy is so damn good and I totally don’t choose Us Weekly over Time while in the waiting room.
But, no. This thief took the good stuff. And I wanted to cry. It was day one and already two packs, like 25 pieces, of Ghirardelli squares had been taken from us.
A video camera caught the thief in action.
The chocolate is now in a jar that requires opposable thumbs to open. -via Tastefully Offensive
