WTH is wrong with people. How could someone plant that stolen plant and get any enjoyment out of it?

I haven't had plants stolen, but I've had lots of experience with people sneaking in and stripping my fruit trees and vines, often before the fruit is even ripe. Well, the birds are bad about that too, but the birds don't take the entire bunch of grapes, including the stems.

I just remembered this thread and thought I'd do an update.

On Halloween Mrs. NBP was doing her candy handout duty (dressed as a witch, smoking cauldron, the whole 9 yards) and an adult came in wearing a scarf over her face and hoody. Got candy for her 2 or 3 year old and casually mentioned as she was leaving that she always liked to get plants and flowers out of our yard.

Had a local Master Gardener stop last Fall who mistook the sweet peas (which grew all summer for some strange reason, they usually burn up in July) for some sort of rare Maryland wild orchid.

Hmm, my mind is running with revenge thoughts. I love to garden and cherish my plants. The idea of someone stealing them from me is enough to make me think.... really bad thoughts. Sorry this has happened to some of you.
