Exercise Caution with Valuables

Brent’s car was broken into tonight at the church while he was playing basketball.  The thief/vandal/scum-of-the-Earth took his wallet, but interestingly enough left the iPod, stereo, and expensive sunglasses untouched.

So now Brent gets to experience the joy of replacing his wallet, driver’s license, credit cards, and passenger window of his car.  Not to mention all of the time spent cleaning up the broken glass (which works its way into every nook, cranny, crack, pocket, crevice, fissure, gap, cleft, and air vent in the vehicle, never to be fully found again).  He also has a fun rattle in the door whenever it is opened or closed.  Not a good thing in any car, much less one that is only 5 months old.

You have to wonder if the thief feels like it was worth the effort and risk of being caught.  There was a total of $10 in cash in the wallet, and Brent immediately called and reported his credit cards stolen, so they wouldn’t be worth much.  Real bright.

HA! I saw on the news the other night about some idiot thief who broke into a house then passed out drunk in there... Real smart.
