Plant thief strikes again...

I don't know what it is about plants round here, and I don't know if it's just one person, or a gang in gardening gloves, but there seems to be something irresistible about other people's flowers.

Someone planted these in the carpark round the corner. Not beautifully arranged, and totally unimaginative in terms of mixing colours, but a sweet attempt to cheer the place up.

The pot next to it?


Three gone, and one rudely upturned. Although they seem to have done some weeding while they were at it. Those plants only cost 2 zloty! (That's half a euro for you people who live outside the land of Po.) I know this because I happen to have two of my own on the balcony, bought from the market for that miniscule sum. Who needs plants so much they can't afford a couple of zloty?

Luckily, the plant thief is unlikely to strike a balcony three floors up, but if he/she/they does/do, don't worry, you'll be the first to know.

Thats how I think it works:
1. you nick 2 plants
2. you take them to Hala Mirowska flower market
3. you sell them for 1.5 zloty each
4. you go to the nearest shop and buy can of Kroleswkie beer for 2.2 zloty
5. you drink Krolewskie, feel happy, and still have 80 groszy in your pocket.
6. you go to nick some more plants.

Soon you are drunk AND rich.

Easy.

Good theory Piotrek. I think it may be a little less organised than that though, and could involve vodka, as they seem to give up after a few plants (or move areas maybe...)

Anon, I tried to vote for Ms G-W, but couldn't because of the bureaucracy meaning you had to register to vote, not for the election, but for each round. Why exactly do you hold her responsible for plant thieves/streetsellers?
