I’ve heard about Car Tires being Slashed but now Strollers Too?

From the Brookland listserv:

“Stroller tires slashed on porch last night

We have twins and leave our large double stroller on our porch. It’s an old model that is really worn down so I haven’t been concerned about it getting stolen but I was still really surprised and frustrated to find this morning when I went out to go on a jog with my babies that all four tires were totally flat, but the rest of the stroller was intact. They worked yesterday so they were definitely slashed or popped.”

    The original poster retracted the claim. It appears the tires were over-inflated the previous night and popped on their own.

      So maybe PoP can just delete this entire post?

    There was a correction to this on the listserv this morning. Apparently they lent stroller out to friends who (over)filled tires and they popped. Crisis averted!

      Listserv update:

      So sorry to alarm everyone. I just got ahold of my husband and while I was out friends borrowed the stroller yesterday for a jog and they pumped up the tires to be nice, so much so that they popped overnight.

      I feel silly but relieved. Again, I apologize!

        Hopefully next time he/she will check all her sources before blasting accusations to the entire neighborhood. As should we all.

          Amen!

    Was about to theorize that this was a Phil & Ted’s stroller. Their wheels suck.

    Glad to hear this was just a misunderstanding. I live in a neighborhood where strollers actually do get stolen off of porches, so I didn’t have a hard time believing that this might happen!
