Damn Thieves!

Yesterday my car was broken into and my purse stolen. Damn thieves! For those of you who don’t know or happened to miss my angry Facebook post or Twitter rant, my car was broken into while I was at the gym. I was inside punishing myself for two hours with a grueling Cardio Kickboxing class and Pilates class to come outside to a smashed in window and my purse stolen.

Now … I know, who keeps their purse in the car in a parking lot? Well, not usually me! The one day that I leave my purse in the car, I get robbed! I didn’t want to take it into the gym because the gym had recently undergone a mass theft of things being stolen out of the lockers. So what was I supposed to do? I had the purse buried or so I thought. That damn purse! Never do I carry around big purses but it was red and I won it right before Christmas. The 49ers had just made their way into the Superbowl and dammit I was sporting the color proudly!

Well, there goes that. My wallet was in the purse with about $100 cash, my business credit and debit cards, my personal credit and debit cards along with my driver’s license, insurance cards and other random things. By the time I had gotten home I had been called (yes, thankfully I had taken my phone into the gym with me!) by two of my four banks regarding recent transactions on the account.

These sons of bitches, fuckers, rat bastards thieves had made their way to five different Targets, three different Safeways and two Chevrons in a matter of two hours! They attempted to charge between $200 and $300 at each location. Thankfully only two small transactions slipped through. The banks (hey, they are doing something right!) shut the cards down immediately and refunded the money that was taken out. I filed my police report online, am still patiently impatiently waiting for them to call and waiting for all my new cards to be mailed.

My window was replaced today but my sanity was not! I am raging pissed off. My $300 glasses were in my purse, two brand new lip glosses I had JUST bought from Mac along with some nice gloves, business receipts, business cards, my identity, pictures of my daughter!¬†Granted, it’s all replaceable but it’s the fact that I HAVE to now replace it all

As I sit here livid on my couch with my sleeping daughter upstairs I have a few things to say…

Who the hell do you people think you are? How desperate do you have to be to cause so much damage? For what? A bottle of Jack Daniels and some cigarettes. I hope you choke on them! Just know that even though you may now know where I live, I DARE you to come back for more. Because while I may have been unable to stop you yesterday, I WILL stop you the next time.

Hmm..which would you prefer? My 9mm or my .45?

You choose…

  2. I am SOOOO sorry!!!! What disgusting people to think that they can get away with this. How did no one see this happening in the parking lot?? :(

    • I know!! It's a crowded parking lot too…at least the gym has surveillance and they were able to get some video from the thieves so here is hoping.

    ugh, that sucks. I'm sorry! our car was broken into once when we were in israel. they stole a gps that we had been borrowing and my knitting bag which had yarn I was knitting for someone else. it was so upsetting. luckily not too much value, like cash or credit cards, but still annoying. plus it was a rental car so we had to get a different one before we could do anything else!

  4. ack!! so sorry to hear about your experience, hon. Our gym has had thefts too…and cars get broken into all the time. One day I walked into the locker room to find a gal with those giant clippers cutting my padlock off my locker!! wtf! About 5.5 yrs ago I had a problem of a different sort…dropped a spare tampon on the gym floor and got embarrassed. It had sat there for ~10 min before I noticed…and I was the only female there at the time. whoops! so what's the point? well…as a result I designed & patented a little accessory that can help you avoid these kinds of problems in the future..theft, loss, inconvenience. Won't fit everything, but for your more important things…YES! perfect to hands-free carry credit cards, ID, cash, keys, cell phones, etc… see more if you like at http://www.portapocket.com Hope this helps. Hang in there!

    • It's unbelievable what people will do! Thank you for the link. Very cool product and as soon as I get a working credit card … DONE! Thank you for the info!! :) That was an easy sale! Haha

  5. Wow, that really sucks. I have had my wallet stolen before and it is the worst feeling in the world. I hope it wasn't your new car that had the broken window, not that it really matters since it is horrible either way.

    Seriously, this world is just full of assholes (sorry for my language), but it is what it is. I am so mad for you just reading all the damage they tried to do in such a short time. Totally ridiculous and so unnecessary. I knew from your posts that your car had been broken into, but had no idea that it was to this extent. I am truly so sorry for you and like I said angry for you, too. And either of the options you listed at the end would totally work!!

    I hope you feel a little better after that rant! I secretly {or not so secretly} loved your angry girl showing through lol! Writing something horrible and unjustifiable like this down helps. I'm SO glad to hear that your banks at least refunded any money that was stolen and those idiots couldn't get any satisfaction out of what they did. And that's so good that at least you had your phone with you. I think I would be most upset about that. Love those options at the end too! Wanna go to the shooting range sometime to practice? ;-) I might need to come to CA because there are literally NONE around here in NY! Damn state!
    My recent post my last co-hosted hop for a while…live it up.

    • Haha ~ I know NY just shuts it down doesn't it? Yes, I want to go shooting. I feel like unloading a couple clips at this moment… Angry girl ~HELLO! I do feel better but I'll feel even more better (haha, couldn't resist) when I dance my ass off in Zumba tonight!

  8. Ahh!! I totally know that feeling! And it's awful!! I would totally be furious right about now! Sorry that happened to you!!

  9. :( I'm sorry, that so sux in a million ways, and the sense of invasion is equally as bad as the theft itself, I know. :(

    Big hugs, even though they won't help w/anything, they're sincere.

  12. Oh my gosh, that SUCKS! I'm so sorry! I am glad that the banks shut it down quickly though. Surprising!

    • It was surprising considering it happened on a holiday which I had completely forgotten about. I drove to the banks and realized they were closed. But … not too much damage was done to the bank account … Still!

  13. I am so sorry :(

  14. That sucks! What freakin' a-holes! Yes, it is a pain in the arse to have replace all those things lost, but at least you and Reagan are ok. Think about it this way: You could have caught the thieves in the act and something could have gone horrible wrong. So glad you are both safe, but sorry you have to go through all this mess!!

    You go girl with your 9mm and .45! I have a 9mm and hubs has a .45 too! :) Stay safe and I hope for those mongrels' sake, they don't try to come back for more!!

    that is soo scary- hope you are okay and i hope they get caught..

    • Thank you Stephanie. I hope they get caught too … that is if the police decide to ever respond to my police report! 48 hours and still nothing!

  16. carla bonesteel says:

    OMG! I feel your pain! And I LOVE the brutal honesty of the post…This happened to me, not too long ago, and I'm still struggling to recover…It's very scary and painful. sorry.

    • Thank you for appreciating my brutal honesty. Sometimes you get nervous about putting it out there like that and letting your true colors show … but then again it's all about being real! I am sorry it happened to you as well. The feeling of being violated like that is horrible.

  17. That's terrible!! This is one of the reasons why I generally hate people!

  18. UGH!! So sorry girl! That's awful!! Any luck with maybe catching who did it on a camera outside of the gym??
    My recent post Lasagna Pastry Pockets

    • They did catch them on surveillance camera but the damn police STILL have not called me back about my police report. What good are they if they do nothing until two or three days after the fact? Why weren't they around catching them using all my cards at Target or Safeway? The banks had the addresses of where the cards were being used. There is surveillance there! Why is it taking them so long to do anything? The system is broken!

  19. That SUCKS. I know it can't fix it this time, but I'd definitely suggest the trunk for next time. Although, I think you might not be letting your purse out of your sight for a while! I hope they can get it back for you.

    • Thank you … Unfortunately I have a SUV so there isn't really a trunk but absolutely I know what you mean. I think I am going to have to call it a loss which sucks … I really want my glasses back! Ugh…

    I get SO ANGRY when I hear about theft! On any scale, taking something that doesn't belong to you is just WRONG! Unfortunately when the economy gets bad, the cases of theft goes way up. I'm sorry that you had to go through that horrible experience….

  21. @VioletImperfect says:

    I am still so angry for you! Grrrr.

  22. So sorry to hear about this. Takes some really lowlife to do such an act. SOmeone broke into our backyard utility buildinga few years ago and got off with outdoor equipment. Never to be recovered.

    OMG! I'm so sorry to hear that, and I agree even though you can replace the stuff the problem is they would never be the same as what you had. :/

  1. […] One of my overall goals for this program was to get back into my routine of getting to the gym five days a week and making it to my classes. I am proud to say that I did accomplish that last week. Even though Monday started off rough with my car getting broken into at the gym! {Ugh…you can read about that HERE.} […]
