The Rez called they want their shape shifter back.. Dirty animal.


So that's where my luggage went!


Do something useful with yourself, go get a job or something. So sick of reading about productive, law abiding people having to deal with #$%^ (people) like this.

Hey sky harbor how about having the luggage carosels in a secure area where you have to show a luggage claim ticket to enter. Maybe this guy just wants to wash everybody's dirty underwear.


Remember the thieving couple that had stolen Sky Harbor luggage piled to the ceiling at their house? To them, Mr. Lewis is an amateur. Perhaps Stanley Roberts should focus his Caught Misbehaving section to Terminal 4 rather than a no u-turn zone :-). Now, that would be a great story!


Tonto have too much firewater kemosabe.

Maybe he thinks, since we took his land, he can take out underwear?
