for the fifth time in a year.
I HATE PEOPLE.
our house has been robbed twice this year. It sucks.
They have just bent the door... there was nothing of value in the car and it has a steering wheel lock on. It is just needless damage!
so the quiet town of Lancaster is the place of such a crime. Although 2 of 5 times I was in Liverpool including when they stole my first car properly :(
about once a year, i didn't think anything of mine had been stolen yet but i can't find my camera now :(
we have the most random burglars ever. the 1st time they stole a phone charger and a sky remote.
The 2nd time a football and midtown madness on the xbox (when there were 12 other games and an xbox sitting next to it).
the first time they seemed to have gone through a pile of games and dvds and only taken some of them, my ipod was in the same room and it wasn't stolen.
is it guilty conscience? or too many drugs affecting judgement of value?
There was someone in the house both times too. It's weird, it makes you very scared.
we've never had anyone in the house at the time, that would make me quite scared. I'd imagine it's more likely to be drugs than a conscience, you'd think if you were going to do it all you'd do it probably and take everything, i'm glad they don't though.
did they think 'oh, a spare is always handy'?
I'm loathed to say 'these robbers are scum' until i know that they're not so completely desperate (for whatever reason) that they have to enter someones house with people in it and steal worthless objects.
I mean you wouldn't do that unless you had to. It's just sad.
they're doing it for shits and giggles, just cos they're bad at judging worth doesn't mean they're completely desperate. I've changed my mind from earlier in the thread, some people are just bastards.
there is still something wrong with you that needs help.
bring back the cane/the draft/hanging.
They do it for the kick of doing it, and as such make very poor judgement because they get caught up in it.
Drugs play a big part in a fair few too.
some kids snapped my rear wiper off my Golf and keyed "I AM A CUNT" onto the plastic lip above the boot lidin massive lettering.
My anger couldn't be directed towards any particular individual which was infuriating.
(their comment was quite accurate though, so they clearly knew me well)
The police lady who came round this morning won't write a crime report until I go to the Fiat garage to make sure it is malicious damage. They wrenched the door open so there is an inch gap at the top. What does she expect the garage to say "Oh yeah that's a common problem with puntos the metal doors sometimes bend quite a lot overnight." FOOLS! The nearest fiat garage is 40 miles away. ARGH!
can you not forge a Fiat report?
To say that someone had obviously done damage to the car and she will file a report :D She was really nice and I feel bad complaining but the police do just seem stupid. Your car crime would annoy me so much, at least with mine I think they were trying to steal something.
