  • The biggest thing I've ever stolen in my life is a screen. A plasma screen. It was the very last day I was spending in that job's place where I've been working for three years, with a lot of suffering. When I went home and I take out the screen from the bag, I started looking at it and thinking that I really did a great job.
    I've never used that plasma screen.

    The "richest" thing Mina has stolen in her life is money. At that time she was working in a Restaurant in Rome. A Five-Star Restaurant. She stole the money from the jacket of a man who, during the all night, had been very sexist and bad with her. "Do you want to know the name of this guy?". He was a very famous Italian right-wing politician. We spend some of that money in a bottle of good red wine in a bar where Mina told me this story. The rest of the money were spent on a nice journey. Mina never came back to work after that night.

    The funniest thing Pablo has stolen in his life is a machine that distributes peanuts. He was in Costa Brava, in Spain, with his friends. They were young and they wanted to dance the all night. They went to a discotheque and asked if there were already people dancing inside. The bodyguard said: "Yes, of course!". But after buying the tickets and entering they realized that the disco was empty. "Let's stolen something to these putos cabrones!", one of them said. So they stole the machine and took it to the camping where they were sleeping. A part from three coins, the machine was only full of peanuts.

    The only thing Gino has stolen in his life are potatoes. It was a very hot day that day somewhere in Australia. He decided to go to camping with his friends when they realized they didn't have potatoes to cook. So he went to a shop he knew it was always open and empty. The owners of that shop took a time for coming inside the place and checking who was inside, because they were two big and fat people living in the back of the place. The bell at the door rang while Gino was entering. No sign of the two big people. He had all the time for taking the potatoes. He took a pack of cigarettes too. When the two big people finally came into the shop, he asked for a pack of chewin-gums. He paid and said: "Thanx, good-bye" with a smile. When Gino and his friends arrived at the camping, he threw the pack of chewin-gums and open the pack of cigarettes.

    One day I would really like to write a book with stories and drawings about this.
    About thieves like us.
