So last night Fiance and I went to the gym, and I usually just hang my coat up in the changeroom, because while it is expensive ($300) it’s also 3 years old, and there’s about a million coats hanging there, so I never think anything of it.
When it was time to leave…my coat was gone. Someone freakin STOLE my winter coat! And it’s -20 degrees outside! Plus, the worst part is I had a pair of diamond studs Fiance bought me a few years ago and the back fell out of one at Xmas so I had put them in there to replace next time I was at the mall, and TOTALLY forgot they were there.
So now I have no winter coat, no diamond earrings, and no house or office keys (which were also in my pocket).
Seriously, WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?! Grrrr

Oh no! I’m so sorry. Who knows, maybe it was a mistake and they’ll return it.

@accorn: They mentioned that at the gym, and I hope it’s true, but probably pretty unlikely….

Does the gym have a security camera on the coat area?

Oh my gosh. You poor thing. What a terrible thing to happen. Don’t you wish that we lived in a society where you could actually just hang up your coat and not worry about it being stolen? I’m so sorry for all the items you lost!

Don’t they have camera’s? Can you call the manager to check the tape? Our all have cameras at the doors.

They do have cameras, but they “legally can’t show me” the footage. So I gave them a description….but it’s a pretty common coat, and if the person was smart they wore it out (which no one will probably even notice-when I was at the desk TWO girls walked in in the exact same coat), or they put it in their gym bag, so they won’t catch it…plus with so many people in the new year (guests and people “thinking of joining”), they might not even know who the person is if they DO catch them.

That sucks I hope you get it back and I agree with PP ask about cameras ASAP!

Ugghhhh. How can someone think that is their coat? Or think it’s ok to take someone elses coat! Ballsy, and incredibly rude!
They have the same thing at my gym, the whole, “honor system” for coats and boots. I don’t use it for a couple reasons though, 1) I am super paranoid about people taking my things 2) It’s 1-2 etra stops before I get to the locker.

That really sucks. Sorry that happened to you.

@sara_tiara: If a couple other people were wearing your coat, maybe someone took it in a hurry thinking it was theirs? Its crazy to me that someone would steal a used coat…I guess I could understand if it were a homeless person or someone who didn’t have a coat…but at the same time what would they be doing at a gym? Seriously people if you can afford a gym membership, buy yourself a coat!
I hope your coat and earrings turn up!

“which no one will probably even notice-when I was at the desk TWO girls walked in in the exact same coat” Maybe one of those girls really thought your coat was theirs considering they were the exact same. Even if they didn’t put it where yours was maybe they usually do and forgot that they put it somewhere else this time so when they looked there and saw your coat they just assumed it was theirs.
I really hope your things turn up.

That sucks! We might have the same coat 🙂 haha TNA? I’m always paranoid that someone will take my coat not just because of the cost but because I love it so much, it’s like a giant down blanket!
