The dutch way!


I do not know if it was true, but this is what a (now retired) colleague once told me: He was reshaping his garden and for that he also needed about 30 street tiles. Instead of buying them he and a friend went out one night with a little van to get (steal) them. In Holland these street tiles are always lying about whenever a street has to be repaved. So when they were putting these tiles in the van a police car arrived, my collegue kept his cool and started throwing them out again. Two policemen came out of the car and asked my colleague what they were doing. My colleague replied that he had been reshaping his garden and that he had tiles left and that he thought the best way to get rid of them was to bring them here. One of the policemen then told him that he couldn’t do that and he had to take them home again.
