A few months ago I was visiting friends and while I re-plated in the kitchen, someone (the host's relative) walked away with my camera. This was a very upsetting incident for all involved. How embarrassing would that be for a relative to steal from a guest !!!
At the time I was not outwardly panicked, I was calmer than Mr. & Mrs. Host and the other guests. I have to confess though, once I got home and laid down, I did have a cry. I have not had anything taken from me in years and years.
The hosts promised to replace my camera right after and the next day and the next day. We've had to negotiate here and there but guess what ! It's been almost 2.5 or so months and Carolyn still has NO camera. This situation for me would be simple. JUST REPLACE THE CAMERA.
As anyone can imagine, this incident has left a bad taste in my mouth. So, I have decided to just purchase another camera and if Mr. & Mrs. Host replace the stolen one, that's good and if they don't they don't.
