Stupid criminal

Dearest Vandalizer,

While I’m not happy about you breaking into my car, there are many things that I am happy about. First of all thanks for emptying the contents of my glove compartment all over the seat. That makes it much easier for me to clean and reorganize. Thanks for leaving everything in my car. Apparently you are not a parent. Otherwise you would recognize that I have a car seat worth about $150 or more in my backseat. And there is a $200 stroller in the back. But instead, you just riffled through my paper napkins, old CD’s, gum and candy stash, and silly car papers. Yep that was worth all the trouble you went through to take nothing. Thanks for noticing the my cheapo sunglasses are cheapo and leaving them there without a scratch.

With all those silly things I do have to tell you about the things I’m truly grateful for. I’m glad I accidentally left my car unlocked. Otherwise I would be making an insurance claim when you broke a window or scratched up my doors. I’m glad you broke before the torrential rains started, and thanks for shutting the doors on your way out. I’m glad that you didn’t take the time to walk 6 feet to my front door. I’m glad that I did lock my front door. I’m glad that my family was safe and sound inside. I’m glad that my precious baby was asleep in his crib. I’m glad that my precious baby isn’t old enough to know what happened and how wrong it truly was. How wonderful that he is young and innocent to the sick, sick world I live in.

Thanks for making me remember to tell my family how much I love them again…just because. Thanks for helping my home become more secure, because now I triple check that my car doors and house doors are all locked. Thanks for making us realize that we need a motion-detector on our garage. Thanks for not scaring me but instead empowering me.

Sincerely,
Mommy Daisy


P.S. No, sir, I don't leave my car keys or money in my car. There was change...I guess you didn't need that.

I'm glad you're all Ok. And I'm glad the carseat and stroller survived!

Oh my gosh! Thankfully it wasn't any worse, but it does make you sick to your stomach, doesn't it?

So glad everyone is okay and your most valuable possessions (human and otherwise!) were not harmed.

How scary!

I'm glad everything is ok!

Devan said...

yikes! Lucky that he/she was too stupid to take the valuable stuff, and even better that your house was locked up tight!

Ah, further proof that the criminal mind is rarely among the best and the brightest.
So, just out of curiosity, what exact crime would that be? Not breaking and entering, since there was no breaking, and not burglary since he didn't take anything... Could you even have pressed charges if you had caught him right in the act? Is it vandalism if he didn't actually deface anything?

At least you're counting your blessings, which are apparently plentiful. My car was broken into a few years ago ... at an auto shop. The window was broken out, and the culprit found there was nothing to still. Fortunately, because it happend on the shop's property, I got the window replaced for free. Was still miffed that it happened in the first place.

How violating, someone rifling through your personal space.

I like your take on it though, what you actually got from it.

Glad you see the upside! I've had my car broken into several times, it really stinks getting windows/radios/other stuff replaced.
