Crime Wave

I haven't been a crime victim for a long time. But yesterday, as I got in my car, I noticed the backing of a little note pad on the driver's seat. Funny, I thought, I don't remember leaving that there. And one of my CDs was on the passenger seat. Funny, I didn't remember that either.

Then it hit me. I was right! I hadn't left those things there! I checked my stash of change that I keep for parking meters. Gone! Well, that was only a couple of bucks. But then I checked my glove compartment. No GPS!

I had just bought the GPS device about a month ago. Never had one before. It's great. And now it's gone.

Boy, it's really true what they say. I feel violated. I don't think I'll be able to look at my car the same way again. Not for a while, anyhow.

At least the thief didn't take the car. Or the registration. And there was no damage. A very clean job.

And he didn't take the CDs. I guess there's an advantage to my musical tastes. The one left out was the Mendelssohn.

Under the rape shield law it would be illegal for you to disclose the make and model of your violated vehicle.
