I live in a very safe quiet neighborhood. And yet ...
A few days ago I was heading out the door to spend quality time with my knitting group. The day was sunny and comfortable ... and I was "free" to be with my friends. All was right with the world.
Except ... someone decided to "take a tour of the inside of my car" over night. When I opened to door, the inside of my car looked like this ...
I stood there for a few minutes trying to process what I saw. Could I have left the car like this? Did my husband enter the car looking for something?
Stupid thoughts, of course, but an effort to put some kind of logic to what eyes were seeing.
Thankfully the car wasn't damaged. We must of left if unlocked over night - something we never do. And we never keep anything in the car - just papers and stuff. I did have some music in the car, and my husband commented: "Guess they didn't like your taste in music 'cause everything is here." :-)
Apparently there has been a rash of this kind of "crime of convenience" ... all occured when the car was unlocked. Some people have lost GPS equipment, cell phones, iPods and stuff. We escaped that consequence because we don't keep anything of value in the car.
We were lucky. No damage, nothing missing, and the car was still parked in the lot.
But it is an invasion of a type. It is also a disappointment that our lovely neighborhood is not exempt from this kind of thing, and a lesson - never leave the car door or front door of your house unlocked.
