As I was scrolling through my Facebook last night I was reminded that while this may be "the most wonderful time of the year", it's still a good idea to keep an eye out for the Grinches of the world.

A post from a friend of mine last night has me very cautious when ordering online. He writes:

"FedEx just dropped a package out front and I came out a minute later to get it and a black ford sport trac was stopped out front and when I came out they sped off quickly.... keep an eye out."

Now there is no evidence that the driver of the SUV was doing anything wrong, but it does make you wonder why he supposedly sped away. As you place your orders online, make sure you keep track of where your package is and that you know when it will be delivered so you can keep an eye out for it. Or if you can, do what I do and ALWAYS ship your packages to your work. That way they aren't sitting on your porch for hours where they can be easily swiped.

We are reminded that there are Grinches out there that just want to ruin your Christmas. So be careful, watch your packages, lock your car (especially if you are shopping), and be extra cautious of your belongings. Don't let a Grinch steal your Christmas!
