hey.. while we are venting about cars and driveways and such.. here's my story from last night.
My car was sitting in my driveway. I always lock the doors because I have a keyless remote thingy that I use as I walk away from the car. I can't guarentee that I hit the button this time, but I do everytime I walk away from my car as it has become habit, so I don't think I would have forgotten.. All of that is really beside the point, though.
I walk out to my car this morning to find that it has been broken into. Upon inspection of the situation it appears that my school backpack is the only thing that has been taken from my car. The interesting thing here is the the thief was nice enough to dump out my backpack all over my backseat and only take the backpack. So this thief steals my 10-yr-old, beat up backpack with a broken zipper (worth almost nothing, but frusterating that I have to buy a new backpack now.) What was in the backpack that they left behind, you wonder? well, fall semester is just about to start. In that bag was one $250 book, one $220 book, one $160 book, my $200 finacial calculator. They got away with the backpack and about $20 worth of pens that were in a seperate pocket.
note: They also left behind my golf clubs, baseball glove, 2 dvd's, and my sunglasses.
I am relieved that they left behind the thousand dollars worth of contents from the bag, but can i be happy about this? I am still pissed.. but relieved that I encountered strangely thoughtful thieves..
