Today I got a call at 8am from my daughter.
A few weeks ago she went out to her VW Beetle and found a hubcap missing. Sure, it could’ve fallen off while she was driving around. It was brand new because the WEEK before she’d purchased a new one because the original one popped off from a pot hole on the freeway.
This morning’s call had someone breaking into her Beetle. They took her Garmin GPS that she got for Christmas 2 yrs ago from my parents. Last week Baby’s sister and 3 other friends pitched in and got her a really nice holder for her birthday…it’s gone. The thieves also took her Student ID, her Mail Key, and her Laundry Card all for her college.
My car has been broken into before and it’s shaken me up. Made me feel vulnerable. But as a mom, I’m pissed! Don’t freakin’ mess with my kids. She’s definitely shaken. She hates going out to her car at 5am anyhow. She’s in the cities, I’d be nervous, too. The fact that she’s shaken makes me want to hunt this idiot down and give them a bit of my own justice.
Get a flippin’ job. My kid goes to school full time. Carries 18 credits or MORE. She volunteers at TWO shelters and Gilette’s Children’s Hospital, leads Sunday school in her church AND works about 10-30+ hours a week. If a 20 year old girl can do it, so can you, ya frickin’ loser! Not only that, but she’s been doing this for 4 years. Yes, since she was 16 she’s been working and volunteering every single day of her life.
I’ve been searching everywhere to find her GPS box to see if we can find the serial number. She’s putting herself through college because I can’t afford to help her out in any way shape or form. Her working all summer didn’t allow her to save any money because she had to pay for all her living expenses. How did you earn your living? Stealing stuff from people who have earned it honestly? By working their butts off to try to get by so some scum bag could come along and take it from her?
I’m a mama on the loose and I’m ready to knock heads.
Alrighty, time to head off to my son’s birthday party. I’m in rare form today people!
Have you ever been robbed? How did you handle it? Did your kids have a hard time with it?
