My Driver’s Side Window was Smashed by a Vandal Friday Night

My Driver’s Side Window was Smashed by a Vandal Friday Night.

He stole some change, my insurance and registration papers, and my door pass for getting into where I work. On the bright side, it took me less than 24 hours and cost only $25 to get the glass replaced. I did all the labor myself. On the weekend. Using Craigslist.

So far, no one has offered me this condolence:

“It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Everybody must live, and what would become of the glaziers if panes of glass were never broken?”

You think maybe they have been reading Bastiat?

  1. My wife’s car was broke into about 6 years ago. In a snow storm! They took everything; stereo, CD’s even my son’s baby booties off the mirror. They left her driver door open so the car could conveniently fill half way up with snow and drain the battery.

    • Very discourteous of them. Like in my case, the least they could have done was leave my ointment for my dry skin. They took that too. What are they going to do? Use it? Sell it? My guess is that they were inebriated and didn’t really know what they were doing. If they had just been smart enough to bust into the trunk they would have made out like bandits. That’s where all the real valuables were. As it was their window smashing wasn’t even worth their time in comparison. They could have had $50 worth of tools, $30 worth of wine, and a $90 jacket, among other things.

    • Oh! And they left something of theirs as well! A screwdriver and a ratchet! Probably what they tried to use to break in before resorting to barbarism and using a giant rock. Pathetic! Maybe I can get fingerprints or something.

Any thoughts?
