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!
