These Things Happen [Oct. 24th, 2006|08:55 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz's car got broken into  yesterday morning in broad daylight in the middle of town. The thieves smashed  a side window and stole her purse- which had fallen out of her bag and must have been lying on the floor. They were only kids. They took the cash- not very much of it- and left the cards scattered over the pavement, where they were rescued by a friendly neighbourhood dentist. Thank you Dr Hill!

It  was almost certainly the same kids who slouched by when Ailz  returned to the car. For one thing they fitted a witness's descrition of the perps and for another they were sort of smirking among themselves. They asked her if she'd been robbed and one of them turned to his mate in a parody of an elderly wiseacre and commented ,"they're animals these days". Very ironic. Very postmodern.

But we got all the cards back and Ailz's driving license and the biggest inconvenience is having to replace the broken glass.

Very ironic. Very postmodern

Very "A Clockwork Orange." When I lived in Los Angeles, the car I currently drive was busted into THREE times, in three different locations, and the dash ripped apart each time to extract the CD player. Infuriating.

Thank God this didn't involve any physical threat to Ailz.

Duh!

I learned not to have great sound in my car after the first time. You slow or somethin'?

Re: Duh!

Lack of access to my well over 1000 CD collection while commuting 45min to an hour EACH way EVERY day was not an option. That's why you carry auto insurance with a zero deductible.

Three times- that's really annoying!
