As I lay sleeping I could hear Rex leaving the house on his way to work. Then, in a rush I heard him storm back into the house. My first thought was, "his fuckin' car is broke and he is going to need a ride to work." Instead, he come in and turns on the light and says, "Someone broke into your car last night, the doors are wide open!"
OH Fuck! what the only thing that I could think.

Rex said he had to get to work, so I told him to go ahead and go, I would deal with it. Since it is only 12°outside I was not about to rush out to see the carnage in a bathrobe. I got dressed and headed out to examine the damage. I was expecting to see glass all over the place. Which would have really pissed me off (because I usually leave the van unlocked when is in at home). But, luckily, there was no glass or broken windows. The drivers door was ajar, I opened it up and could see that someone (obviously one person) had gone through all the compartments and tossed most up it aside. The insert of the ashtray was gone (which is where I keep change). I hope they think they got a lot, but I know that it was almost all pennies, because I used the last of the quarters and dimes to get a lottery ticket last week. I really was interesting the things that were left behind. My electronic things, phone charger, my K-tag for the turnpike, the adapters for the stereo, the radio (but it was the factory cassette/AM/FM), a full book of cash receipts for work, my glasses. The Passenger sliding door was wide open which make me think that this person was acting alone and did not know much about the type of vehicle that they were working with. All the registration papers and receipts were still in the drawer under the passenger seat and it was still closed. I went around the other side of the van and noticed that my toolbox was also gone. It had my jumper cables, socket set, general tools (screwdrivers, wrenches, odd and ends of 20 years of car maintenance), emergency air compressor, lug wrench, various belts and gaskets. This person did not know about the hatch release or where the garage door opener was. So, guess it could have been worse.
I just hope that they were on foot and that they had to carry that tub of tool and $1.50 in pennies for a couple of blocks in 0°weather, Asshole!

Sorry you have a theft. Ashtrays are almost always stolen nowadays, as just about everyone puts their change in there. *HUGS*

I guess that is one of the side effects of so many stop smoking campaigns....

Thanks for the HUGS..

Wow what a pain in the as. Glad nothing major got stolen. Must have been a crackhead looking for quick cash for a quick fix.

Yeah, and I hope they froze there ass off as they carried it to the pawn shop... :)

Sounds like a kid...although not sure what they think they'll get for a toolbox full of tools and such......

It would have been different if they were actually nice tools. These were my crappy tools that I keep in the car (just in case they get stolen) I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, I was just thinking that it would be in the summer more than the dead of winter.....

:-( What an annoyance!

Yeah, it was a pain in my ass. But, I believe in Karma.

Karma, baby, Karma!

Oh btw, It was so much fun last night. I am so glad we got to play some mahjongg for a few rounds...... YAY!

I think that we should do it again on Friday!

Yeah. I read about that on your LJ. That was really shitty. Sounds like the ones who broke into your truck know exactly what they were doing.... Glad it wasn't worse.

Oy. Honey. (HUG) Thank God this wasn't worse!!! It sounds like the guy had no clue what the hell he was doing -- fortunately for you!

Thanks Roger. hugs are always welcome. I sure that he didn't know what he was doing. Besides, it was about 0°- 10°out and the lights in the van were on and the lights on the Garage are motion sensative, so there were on. Idiot. I hope he froze his ass off.

Sorry to hear, Bro, but I am glad it was not worse...

Thanks, Gryph. I have called in a police report (not that it will do anything) but I am starting to get over it.

The Police officer said that before I called there were about 7 stolen car reports this morning, all in about the same area. So, I guess it could have been a lot worse.

Can't wait to get out of this town. (at least for a short while)
Jan. 19th, 2008 08:55 pm (UTC)
Well, Yay! for the fact that you're coming here to do that!

That sucks
Whoever they were, I hope they are damned to eternity with the task of serving Cocktails to Vicious Drag Queens.

That really sucks....and trying to remember what you had where is a pain in the ass too. Maybe they dropped the tools and broke their foot....Karma and all :)
