Another classics from this week:
Male calls up to report a theft, nothing unusual in that.
The theft occurred in June 2005, there might, I suppose, be some reason why a theft which occurred 9 or 10 months ago isn’t reported until this week; Polar Scientist been away for a few months, IP* been in a coma, or something, but a theft is a theft.
The details of the crime are that the offender, who works in the same office as the IP has, on said date in June, gone to the office fridge and used milk from the IP’s milk bottle without permission to make their tea.
You couldn’t make it up.
* IP – Injured Party/Victim
