Such craziness at our house today! Basically, I bought the kids a $10 children's pool a few weeks back, and I eventually planned on getting them a better/bigger one, but had not decided completely as the $10 pool serves it's purpose. Anyway! Today it suddenly came up missing. Which, okay, at first I thought it had blown away, so I went looking around to find it. Well, as I do I notice the neighbors a couple houses down on their deck playing in a pool that, get this, looks just like our missing one! Okay, so I try to give the benefit of doubt here and think well maybe they bought one. The kids and I take ourselves to our backyard, and I let them play around a bit. Suddenly, our neighbors are scrambling to cover up the pool and put things in front of it to try and block it from our view. This seriously pisses me off, as they have stolen from my kids with no plans to return. I mean, I was even letting myself believe that perhaps it had blown in their yard or SOMETHING. Once they started trying to hide it though, I chose to involve the police. I mean, they are stealing from a 2 and 3 year old here! Alright, so I involve the police and he goes over to speak with them. They say they bought the pool yesterday at a store in town and ladeda. The police take their story, he comes back to me and alright, though I am pretty sure it's our pool I can't really go over and take it back. I decide to go to said store and have a look. Turns out they do not sell the pool brand, and don't even have a green pool in stock at their store, never have. Thankfully the police officer was on the same page as me and had went to the store as well. Anyhow, I have the receipt and original package for the pool from when I bought it, so I have all the proof. (Plus pictures of my kids in pool and such) well, he can't just go take it I guess so he was going to investigate further and I just figured I would buy the kids a new pool with plans of sneaking over and popping that pool because they are scum to me at this point. Well, life goes on and I work nights and since I spent all afternoon with that I had to take a shower and leave for work. Well, just about an hour or so ago our pool mysteriously shows up in our yard! Lmao. It's crazy, and in the dead of night they brought it back. In the end, my kids will have their swimming pool tomorrow and all will move on but it's just craziness to me!
