Canary in the coal mine…

We’ve all heard of that one. But how about "bird in the bingo parlor?" Both, it turns out, warn of impending consequences after something negative has occurred.

It happened in Myrtle Beach, SC., recently and goes something like this (from the Sun News)…

A bird flying through Myrtle Beach Bingo alerted an employee closing the business that someone had burglarized it, according to a police report.

The employee told police Thursday that as she closed the business she was startled by a bird flying through the store at 700 South Kings Highway, police said. The woman said she went into the front office of the business and found a window broken.

The woman then found a monitor for the store’s security system and a paper shredder were missing from the office, according to the report. A large stone was found near the window and the items were valued at $375.

Figure out your own lesson from this, I can’t think of one.
