So last night someone broke into (okay it is quite possible that I just left the door unlocked and they actually just entered vs broke into...but I digress) my car!!!!
The car was parked right outside my kid's open bedroom window......(thought makes me wanna kill someone...hmm maybe I should buy a gun except my son would probably find it and shoot himself.)
Anyway they stole the stereo, ripped it out of the dashboard and smashed the dashboard all up in the process.
Apparently the "detachable stereo face" only thwarts thieves when you actually detach it.
On the plus side they didn't steal the whole car, on the minus side the car is worth less than the stereo.
Interestingly they also stole my picture cell phone. Which, even more interesting, they ANSWERED when I called.
ME IRATE "YOUR ACTUALLY ANSWERING THE PHONE?!"
Criminal quickly hangs up.
This behavior leads me to believe that I'm probably dealing with a crack addict.
Anyway the worst part is the police don't give a crap and they can't be bothered to pretend they do either. I'm not sure which of these facts is more maddening.
They took the information over the phone. I was like hey....don't you wanna come see my car it's all trashed up! Officer was like...nope no need. Apparently he sees this all the time, he sounded kinda bored actually.
I had gone to all my neighbors to let them know what happened and amazingly a guy down the block had actually seen (WITNESS -AM I RIGHT) a big fat white guy with a back pack and spikey hair walking slowly around the neighborhood around 1:30 AM.
Also my verizon phone company let me know if the police contact them they will be happy to give out any phone numbers that were called on my phone late last night or early this morning.
So I'm thinking wow the cops are gonna catch this doomaas. But hold on wait a second..... officer doesn't feel the phone numbers are needed. Not, unless of course I need them included in the police report so I don't have to pay for the calls.
Gee thanks but verizon isn't planning on charging me for those calls anyway. I thought they might be helpful for the investigation.
At this point I can't be sure but I think I heard a guffaw!
So, undeterred I ask the officer ......"So what's the next step?" "Hit the local pawn shop and let them know about the perp who may be coming in to sell my stuff ?"
Officer actually tells me that's a good idea and I can go ahead and do that.
I CAN DO THAT!!!!! Isn't that their job? Men in blue, crime fighters, and all that jazz. Apparently not....They are very busy (my town is very small) ...go figure.
Funny they weren't too busy to give me a speeding ticket when I was going 32 mph in a 25.
No wonder people get mad at the coppers.....LOL
The officer actually did laugh at loud when I suggested finger printing my car. He also made the hilarious comment that this has been happening in my neighborhood alot as of late.......
Gee I wonder why? If they never even try to catch the guy......it's probably a pretty lucrative business breaking into cars.
