This is a warning to all of you out there who may be attempting to sell your home and are having open houses. Recently, we had an open house. In our haste to leave the house to the Realtors for the showing, we failed to put all of our valuables away. When we returned, we discovered that the pearl earrings that I had saved to give to my wife on her birthday were gone. One of the people viewing our home stole them. Not just the earrings, but the box as well.
I do not blame the Realtor. There were far too many people in the house at once to keep track of. I do not blame us. Although, we failed to hide the jewelry box, it was the lowlife thief who is to blame. So, I warn you. Secure your valuables. These despicable people don't care about the harm they do, or what you had to sacrifice to get these items for your loved ones. They don't care about you. Be warned.
