Really!?!?!?! I went out to my car this morning and the passenger seat was moved forward. Hmmm…

  1. I leave the car unlocked because fixing a broken window would total the car’s value of $300.
  2. Everything from the glove box (coupons, owner’s manual, car registration, insurance card, extra interior light bulb, extra fuse, pen from Jax Sheriff’s Office, sunglasses case, glasses cleaning rag) was strewn about the passenger seat.
  3. The only thing missing was my prescription sunglasses that I paid $60 for. Really??!!?  They were the old prescription and on the way to be donated to the Lion’s Club.
  4. You didn’t even try to steal the radio. It doesn’t work anyway, so no big deal, though at least with that I could have filed a police report.
  5. Still in the car, though moved around:
    • Umbrella
    • laundry detergent, economy size
    • brake fluid
    • engine oil
    • large container of water (1.5 gallons)
    • 1-liter water bottle
    • 2 bags of clothes for the Goodwill
    • a box full of canvas tote bags
    • Rocawear flannel
    • a beach bag with a beach towel, floppy hat, sunblock, and flip flops

You may think that because you have my address from the registration and insurance (if you were bright enough to write it down as you didn’t take any of these), you will now be able to tell when I’m gone. Wrong. I’ll be parking elsewhere for the next month or so. And my neighbor, who is currently unemployed, knows what happened. He has a German Shepard. He’s home all day. And he’ll be watching my place. Also, I have a very flexible work schedule, so I’ll be stopping by the apartment unexpectedly several times a day the rest of this week.

To the jerk who trashed my car: don’t worry, you will be caught for something else. As your actions show, you aren’t the brightest bulb and that will eventually get you caught. As a friend is fond of saying, Karma is a goddess.
