I Was Robbed!


About 9:30, my sweet tooth got the better of me and I decided to make a quick Dairy Queen run. I noticed as I got to the car (which was parked in the driveway) that the door wasn't completely closed. Odd, I thought.

I opened it and saw that the glove compartment was open and half empty. Thought again, hmmmm, unusual. Next I noticed that the elbow rest was up and all the stuff from both locations was piled on the front seat.

Amazingly, although I had a Garmin GPS, nice flashlight, iPod, and somewhat pricey iPod tuner among the loot in the car, none of it was taken. It was on the front seat. All of the change was gone from the middle holder, but that's it.

Pretty balls-y I dare say. There are two big floodlights shining on the car, and it was tucked up right next to the house (right next to a living room window). Guess it's good that I left the car unlocked. Must've been some junkie looking for quick money.

Little does he know how lucky he is. If Wiley had spied him, it would've been all over!!! (quit laughing Yorke).

Well, its no wonder! You leave your vehicle unlocked, and you practically live in DOWNTOWN SB!

We were warned to never leave even a little change or anything else in the car in DC as someone will break the window to get at even the smallest amount of change. Although I find it hard to believe any one would do that so near the House of Wiley.

My point exactly. The fool!!

I'm going to point out that this happened once before. And it preceded a dangerous event.

If you don't start locking that car, I'm going to start driving to South Bend every night and doing so for you.

Yorke said...

good idea, Jaime, perhaps we can take turns driving there every night. Except how about if we take turns taking things out of it? I could really use a new iPod....or even an old one.

Sue said...

It did? I'm drawing a complete blank. I guess you'd better plan on the drive out...

Sue said...

Go for the GPS. Might come in pretty handy in Chicago. But beware, I've got the boys on patrol, ready to spew a hairball at any trespassers.

Jaime said...

Great idea Yorke!! We at least know to take the good stuff.

The hairball, however, is a great anti-theft deterrant. At least in my case. The hairier, the better!
