What kind of lowlife steals a choir robe?!?

Some at least don't think of it as stealing. They're new. They see a robe that will fit them, and somebody says "Oh, she's not here" (or, since I'd told the director I would be gone for awhile, "She's not around right now, take that one.") When they're done, they're in a hurry...they drop the robe on the bench, or they hang it up in a rush, not on the same hanger. Next service, someone who forgot their robe at home needs a robe. They also borrow it. (This is why I normally take my robe home every time...that last Sunday, I wasn't feeling well and left without it...and then the stuff hit the fan and I wasn't there for a month.) Someone may notice it's a bit whiffy and take it home to wash--and then put their own label in it (I hadn't had my new robes long and I don't think I'd put my name *in* the robe yet--depending on the very labeled hanger to protect it if I left it between Sunday and Wednesday night practice.)

The church has some choir robes but some (including mine that disappeared) were purchased by choir members. Those who sing only occasionally don't buy robes...and are less likely to know that a robe on a particular labeled hanger belongs to someone privately.

Ah. So maybe you can recover it? (If it hasn't been washed, you might be able to prove ownership with the aid of a bloodhound... [:)]
