I agree. I lock everything. I offset alzheimer's by going through my key chain occasionally and remembering which key goes where.
I have some friends who live in the Bahama Islands. Power outages (extended) are a regular occurrence there so most everyone has a (home) generator available.
Their generator was hooked up and running some essentials in the house when the power stopped flowing, but the generator could still be heard running outside. A quick check of connections and plugs inside the house produced still no power. Going outside to check the connection at the generator they found their lawn mower running and their generator was MIA.
While I will never call a criminal intelligent, I will give these lads a nod for creating their own opportunity.
