In New York City, there are eight million cats and eleven million dogs. New York City is basically just concrete and steel, so when your pet dies, you can’t just go out in the back yard and bury it. The city would dispose of your dead pet, but charged $50

So one lady had this great thought: I can get rid of dead pets for less than that! I’d be providing a service to people in the city and saving them money. She placed an ad in the newspaper saying that she would provide this service for just $25 – half what the city charged.

Her plan for disposal was brilliant. She would go to the Salvation Army and pay 2 bucks for an old suitcase. Then, she’d pick up the dearly departed pet and put it in the suitcase.

She’d hop on the subway, put the suitcase down, and act like she wasn’t watching it.

Invariably, a thief would come by and steal her suitcase.

Not only did she save money for grieving pet owners, but she may have rehabilitated a thief or two!

This woman was able to use the prevalence of theft to her advantage, but most of us aren’t so fortunate.
