Default Some little punk stole my Kid's Burton jacket

<venting>

I'm seriously pissed about this, not only does he not have a jacket to ride in, but his season's pass was in there that I have to pay to get replaced, and it wasn't very warm out. What kind of kids steal a jacket! I wonder if the parents will say "Cool, you got a free jacket!"



So now I need to buy a jacket at the peak of the season...

</venting>

Does anyone know if other jackets zip onto Burton pants? The whole jacket zipping to the pants was pretty cool... keeps the snow out of his pants and keeps him dry.

Not being unsympathetic...ya it sucks. My kids have lost, got stolen, misplaced, borrowed and swapped most of their stuff. By the time they were 10-11-12...I was "its your stuff...you keep track of it and if you give another kid the opportunity to steal your stuff...well deal with it." The oldest goes ballistic, the middle one...is well I guess they needed it more than I did and the youngest...I don't remember...I think I traded it. Anyway, the hill is a great place for kids to learn to be responsible for themselves and their stuff.

This was at school, at basketball tryouts. He went to grab his jacket from the hooks and it was gone.

I had a board stolen years ago. It amazed me that someone would steal a 157 Movement with Preston bindings hacked up to be bseless and T-Bolted at 22.5" with 12/-9 set up goofy foot. Oh well.

At first I thought, well it's a byproduct of MFM saying how cool and how hood he was by getting his start w/ stolen gear.

Do you know if the crime child is also trying out for the basketball team? Tell your son to posterize the kid.

I did that with my middle son when he was in elementary school; made him write a letter, apologize and return the thing (forgot what it was now) in person...he never stole again. Also did it something like it when he was 17, had a fairly substantial party at his uncle's house when he was house sitting for a couple weeks. Cured him right up and instilled the fear of god in the youngest...who has not tried these things.

Another example of why we all need to return to a better time when an adult could shit kick a child. Doesn't even need to be everyday, once a year would be perfect as long as the beating can be retro active and it's not your own kid (don't worry, if he's a shit head, someone else will beat him)
