Yup, it’s a lot of stuff…and that’s why I don’t like to revisit the ‘missing stuff’ list because I get all aggravated again. (ha!) In spite of my grousing about it, I do write the pilferage off.
Funny thing about the gold lacquered jungle animal. The housecleaner initially thought it had been taken but then found the broken pieces under the bed under the headboard against the wall.
When she first called me, it was to report that the animal was missing. (She can walk in a room and immediately spot what is not right.) So I emailed the guest and asked whether he/his wife might have moved it and he responded he had placed it on the floor beside the dresser so he could charge his (electronic device). I knew that was phony because there is nothing on that long dresser except a coin dish and a little lamp and the décor item. I called the housecleaner but by then she had found the broken pieces.
What was interesting is that she said it looked as if the couple might have had a cat-fight because the acrylic-on-fabric wall hanging behind the bed had a dent in it, as if something had been thrown against it. That probably explains why the pieces were on the floor behind the headboard. I didn’t contact the fibber-guest but they will never darken my door again.
Darn it…I liked that décor item too. Fifty bucks down the drain.
