1. Why bring clothes when the closet is full? -- San Francisco, CA
A woman in the Bay Area returned from a week-long business trip to find her apartment ransacked: the renters broke into a locked closet and stole her passport, cash, and jewelry, photocopied her birth certificate and social security card, and even wore her clothes.
