Now that the disclaimer is out of the way…I am fucking pissed. I got up today like any other day; got me and Roo ready and I can’t find my purse…
OK – no big deal I must have left it in my car. See I went to they gym last night and had my hands full and was on the phone when I got home. I get out to my car to find my purse dumped in my front seat! My wallet, work Blackberry and BRAND NEW GPS my mom just bought me for my birthday are GONE! WTF????
I know that I am partially to blame for this because I was the dumb ass who left her purse in an unlocked car but fucking seriously? I live in a pretty nice neighborhood and never lock my car if I’m at home. It’s in MY driveway for Gosh sake!
After the cursing stopped (which Roo promptly reminded me where bad words that ladies don’t say) I brought her to school so I could figure out that the hell I was going to do.
I called work and told them what happen and explained that I wouldn’t be in. I also had them lock down my Blackberry so the douche bags that had it couldn’t use it.
Then I called the local police department and they told me to go home and wait for an officer to come to my house.
I went home. I waited. I made a list of all the items took. I checked my bank account….FUCK – they used my debit card. I called the bank. Blah blah blah
The cops show up I had him a list of what time I got home, what time I noticed everything missing and exactly what was took with estimated values. I pulled up my account and showed him the charges. He calls another office who takes my statement and he dusted my car for prints. Long story short – wait to hear from a detective. But if they do catch who took my stuff they can be prosecuted for fraud and grand larceny. Would I be willing to press charges? DAMN RIGHT I WOULD!
Then I start freaking out because I have no drivers license. And my license is issued from Alaska. I can’t exactly get back there to get a new one issued! Then it hits me…my social security card is in the wallet. At this point I want to punch someone in the face.
Hubby is out of town. I’m here by my self and I feel violated. Hubby called the base and they sent his supervisor over to check on me which helped. He calmed me down and told me the same thing had happen to him a while back; they got was his CD player and an amp.
I gather everything up to take to the social security office so they can issue me a new card and put an alert on mine. As I head out to my car my neighbor comes running up my drive way…she found my wallet in her recycle bin! Oh I hugged her I was soooo happy. Everything was there except for my debit and credit cards (which have all been reported stolen) I am so grateful that she returned my stuff and I told her everything that happened and to watch out. I plan to go around and talk to the rest of my neighbors when people start getting home from work today.
So they got my $200+ GPS and car adaptor, my $400 Blackberry and whatever they spent out of my checking account (the pending charges haven’t cleared so I don’t have the exact number). The purse they dumped was a Coach purse so I am shocked they didn’t take that! Please don’t leave me a comment about how it’s my own fault for leaving my purse in my car unlocked – I get it. I was stupid. BUT that doesn’t give anyone to right to come on to my property and steal things that don’t belong to them.
I really hope the cops find who did this and they go to jail. Chances are they won’t but what goes around comes around.
