So my car got broken into last night.
This is at least the third time.
The part that kills me is that I live in an incredibly boring neighborhood. It's pretty damned safe and boring and quiet and boring.
The first time they stole my GPS.
Stupid of me to keep it in the car, I know. But I figured it was "safe" because I didn't advertise it - it was a handheld one with no mounting bracket or anything, and I stowed it in the middle compartment rather than leaving it or its paraphenilia out on the seat.
But it WAS stupid of me to keep it in the car.
I occasionally do stupid things.
But usually USUALLY I learn from them.
So I no longer leave anything of value in my car.
The second time they broke in, they stole my ipod charger and the earbud for my phone. Seriously? The earbud for my phone???? That's worth about $10.
But some people can't help being assholes. They just have to keep coming back for more.
This time, I'm not even sure they managed to get IN my car. There are pry marks all around my window and a few small gashes in the leather on the door. (I'm soooo thankful they use a jimmy instead of breaking my windows!) But as there was nothing NOTHING worth taking this time, nothing went missing.
I wish this shit would end.
But I accept that there's little I can do to prevent it, short of buying a car alarm for a 15yo POS. So I just protect myself as best I can by not tempting them and not rewarding them.
Maybe they'll get bored and discouraged and give up? *hoping really hard!!!*
I really doubt it. But a girl can dream...
