Bike stolen. We stole it back.

Funny story about my partner's bike. It was stolen from our front porch. He was furious - he loved that bike. Couple of months later he saw his bike parked outside the shopping centre where we shop. He checked it over - definitely his. Well - he stole his bike back! Rode it home then walked back to the shopping centre to get his car. We love telling this story and still laugh about it.
