I read in sci.electronics.design that Kevin Aylward

'My client is a refuse collector for the Borsetshire County Council. On
30 February last, he collected recyclable refuse from no. 5674 Short
Street, including a cardboard box left beside the refuse bin. While it
is nominally not in order to collect refuse that is not in the bin, at
this address refuse is routinely left beside the bin.
At the depot, a colleague opened the box, to determine if the contents
were recyclable, and discovered the vase. Since the opinion of
colleagues and the supervisor was that the vase might be valuable, even
though cracked, my client undertook to return it to the address from
which it had been collected. He was surprised not to be thanked, but
instead accused of causing the crack. We will produce a witness, a
former employee of the occupant of 5674 Short Street, who will say that
the vase was known to be cracked during the time that she worked there.'
