How unlucky do you have to be to have your car broken into twice in three weeks? I mean, seriously. Well, last night, the scum of the society struck again, and stole every single gadget from my car, breaking my glove compartment lock in the process. One of the worst things about driving an old car is that it is TOO easy to get in them. I realized this after I discovered that the bastards had been able to get in without breaking a thing. They broke the glove compartment latch as it was locked.
The last time I had such an experience was when I went to Raleigh for my graduation ceremony. I had rented a Toyota Corolla, and was celebrating graduation with my friends in downtown Raleigh, when I come back to the car and see the passenger side front window shattered to small pieces. The robbers had been unable to steal anything, though, because I had nothing in the car besides my graduation robe. They were too dumb to realize its value, apparently.
This has been driving me mad for the last 7-8 hours. I really miss my navigation system. I miss my satellite radio. And, I miss my Dell music player. Yes, it was dumb of me to leave all that equipment out in plain view, but how the hell was I supposed to feel insecure when the car was parked a small distance away from my apartment in a VERY illuminated lot with lots of cars and houses surrounding it? I am just very mad right now, and hope that the culprits rot in the worst possible situation imaginable.
I know I am never going to see my stuff again. The cop somewhat assured me of that. It’s impossible for them to track transactions at every pawn shop in the city much less the state. Nevertheless, I am going to try to find out the serial numbers of the gadgets and pass them on. He refused to take finger prints, and I am not sure what the usual procedure is on that, because when my rental car was broken into in Raleigh, the cop there told me that they usually take fingerprints if something is stolen from inside the car. I was lucky then, but I was very unlucky now.
I just wish the scum of the society got cleansed out forever.
