A few weeks after we moved in to the Village of Charlotte in 2012, someone performed a nozzle-ectomy on the garden hose we had outside the garage. So, we attached a new spray nozzle. A few days later the replacement disappeared. After the third one vanished, we decided it wasn't smart to leave the hose and nozzle outdoors, so into the garage it went. We were lucky. A couple of other neighbors lost their complete hose and nozzle. Apparently there was someone in the neighborhood with a rubber hose and spout fetish. Maybe they needed them to finish out their collection. Didn't notice nozzles listed in the classifieds and luckily no more have disappeared since.

Just out of curiosity, if you did catch someone...what is it that you would do?

In all seriousness, I am always amazed at someone taking something that does not belong to them.

If your suspicions are correct, a subtle message has been left.
Love this idea.

Definitely something I can't post here, but thanks for asking.
