‘Helpful’ Man Steals ‘Stolen’ Milk Crate

I love this craig’s list post. A man was carrying home vintage milk crates (no mention of where he obtained them) two helpful men offered to assist him and one walked off with the best one of the bunch. He posts this to recover his stolen property.

from the post:

I was carrying home some vintage milk crates this morning and struggling to juggle them all. Two amazing trash collectors offered to help me carry them to my apt down the street, and an older gentleman expressed interest in my crates and then proceeded to walk off with one of them! If you know anyone who “found” a vintage Hood milk crate on Cooper St. this morning – He actually took the nicest of the bunch and should really give it back.

Walmart Selling Fake Out Crates

I don’t know why Walmart is calling this a milk crate. It does not stack, it’s made of cardboard (not plastic) and worst of all they are charging $34.99. –> OIA Onyx Milk Crate via

Max Balances 15 crates, at Age 13

Young Max, age 13, is a balancing force. He is already doing 15 milk crates on his chin. I think Jon Evans record of 98 (on his head) is in jeopardy. –> Awesome! Watch Max Balancing 15 Milk Crates via YouTube
