A Rant and A Promise
This is my car. Yes, you read correctly: my car. The other night, my car was broken into and property was stolen. I am shocked, hurt, livid, and I feel totally violated. I found out about this when a police officer rang my bell yesterday morning and informed me that my car window had been smashed.
I answered the door, wearing my PJs. The husband and I had just finished our morning coffee and I had just began cleaning the house. I was asked if the car in question was mine and if so, I needed come outside and check if anything was taken. As soon as I heard the word, "taken," I felt an instant sense of dread. I brought home an item from work on Friday afternoon. Due to the activity over the weekend (Father's Day), I forgot this item was in my car and lo and behold, now it is gone. I feel like such an idiot. I am also mad someone thinks they can vandalize others' property and steal. How does trash like this sleep at night?!
I try very hard in my daily life to be kind, considerate, polite, and a lady. Sure, I have my faults, but I feel confident in saying that I am a nice, good person. I also try to honor the good in people but situations like this really let down my hopes for a kind, thoughtful humanity.
Despite my disappointment, I have to be strong and need to be positive. Thankfully, no one was hurt, my car is covered my insurance, and my work also has insurance on the stolen item. I have filed a police report and made all the necessary calls to repair my car window. Moreover, I will use this experience to be more diligent when it comes to leaving valuables in the car.
I am still upset but I know in the end, all will be okay. However, I hope the person or persons who did this will get caught and get what they deserve. Although I have been victimized, I will hold my head high and continue to be courteous, intelligent, and classy.
