I turned a small safe out for the rubbish collection once, it attracted a few odd looks by passers by but no one took it, not even the refuge collectors, so I gave it to a scrap metal dealer.

I think you meant 'refuse' collectors. Hope you had a good New Years Eve.

Thank you, yes you are indeed right, I apologize for my mistake. No more Baileys for me then.

The safe in the above article was presumably a small transportable one then, seems a big risk to me, to bother carrying a safe away without knowing if there is actually anything in it.

Do you know Gill, that is how i realised i knew you when i first read this website because you always spell apologise with a z. Have you worked out who i am yet.
I think if they catch the culprits they should lock them in a safe and throw away the key.

My phone occasionally auto predicts 'apologise' but it should accept my spelling choice of apologize by now.
My Collins dictionary agrees with my choice of spelling. I also always spell hello as hallo, I am afraid a few continental ways have stuck.

The article does not say whether they dumped the safe opened or unopened? It says cash was taken but not whether the cash was in the safe? I would be interested to know if they actually managed to get into the safe?
I couldn't get into mine when I forgot the combination and the override key was in the safe, that's why I got rid of it, plus the fact it never had anything in it.
