A Mystery!!

I want to know where my bathroom scales have gone?

They disappeared on the night when Matthew had his party here. I presumed at the time that someone had removed them from the bathroom out of the way, which seemed like quite a sensible thing to have done.... but after extensive searching and interrogation of family members it has become apparent that no one here has any idea where they are!!

So what happened to them? Were they damaged irreparably and quietly disposed of? or did someone take them home? if so WHY?

All suggestions welcome, no matter how unlikely or imaginative!!

That is so bizarre. You will either find them in some strange place this afternoon, next weeek or 10 or 20 years from now or somebody nicked them, for reasons you will never know. The mind boggles as to why they would want to or even why they would want to walk home with it under their arm.

I was once burgled. I didn't realise it at first and it was only when I stepped over the video recorder lying on the floor, intending to shut the curtains, that I realised that I was stepping over fresh air. It had gone. The house was immaculate. Nothing out of place. So that was that I thought. Next morning I went to iron something to wear to work and hey presto, iron gone. That was all they nicked. My vid and iron.

I can see why your missing scales is perplexing. Have you checked the garden? :)

OMG now Viv'll be checking the house to see what else is missing!!
When we got burgled, I just thought that my flatmate had been looking for something in a hurry, then I thought, wow, she went through my stuff too *shrug*. Then a while later I noticed the kitchen window was missing...

Now I'm worried.... what have I missed???

Over the next few days we would be looking for things then realise they must have been stolen!

I have taken a quick look round the garden and can't spot them, but we do have lots of bushes and live on the edge of woodland, so they might be lurking somewhere out there - Matthew has promised to do a thorough search on the next dry day...

I'm quite prepared to believe they were taken, just can't really figure out why?

We sure felt bad when someone took our garden gnomes that we used to keep the gates open in the wind!

Look behind the bathroom cabinet. Under someone's bed in a bedroom. Just outside the bathroom window in the bushes. At a guest's home who is anorexic. In the pantry - maybe Ian or one of the boys wanted to weigh some ingredients...

We don't have a pantry!!! The scales may well turn up somewhere very strange, probably just after I have bought a replacement!!

Tell me more about the scales. Were they old fashioned ones or one of these ultra trendy see through ones? In short, were they worth nicking?

In a word no. They were relatively new, but they were very ordinary scales...cheap ones from Boots!!!!

It was me!
They were just so good at weighing I couldn't resist. I had some trouble carrying them out the house tucked down my blouse (was a little tight and bulky), but it was all good.

They are now sitting pride of place in my toilet. (only room with a decent level floor) I swear Simon pee'd on them last night, he denies it, but I was trying to check if i'd lost weight, and I got wet feet. Guys are so grubby.

I was hoping to return them when I've lost some weight - but you'll need to have another party, so I can sneak them back in. No promises though, as it is really hard to stop eating these nachos.

Oh Simon says I need to get them out of the toilet, as he keeps tripping over them. Maybe you can come pick them up, no hard feelings? I was drunk.

It is obvious! The scales were taken so that the full weight of the law did not come down on the underage drinkers.
