Photo Theft

When I make a print of a picture I’ve taken, I put it up in my office at work.  I take these down and put them up at home at the end of each year so today I took down all my pictures.  I sent out an email to my coworkers saying they were welcome to any they wished from the stack next to my desk.  No one took any pictures while I was there but when I went to get a drink or work in the lab, I’d return to find that one or two pictures had been taken.  I felt like I was being robbed by gypsies.

I asked a coworker if he wanted a print he always thought was nice and he declined.  Later in that day he came up to me with that print that he’d taken from the stack while I was at lunch and asked me to sign it.  I felt tickled.
