My phone was stolen yesterday. I am annoyed that it is expensive to replace, but I literally wanted to cry over losing the pictures I had saved on my phone. In addition to amazing doggy pictures, I had a folder of wedding inspiration. I totally know this is my own fault for not backing up my phone often enough, but that knowledge obviously doesn’t help me now. Whoever has it, I will give you the money it’s worth to get my pictures back 😛
Has anything ever been stolen from you?

I’m sorry, loosing your phone super sucks. Yeah, I’ve been ripped off. Once my cat and all my stuff from a roommate while I was out of town and another time my rent in cash from my purse. Absolutely my cat was the worst. Still miss her.

@tksjewelry: OMG, someone stole your cat! That is so evil!
@MrsPanda99: I’m so sorry to hear about your pictures and wedding inspirations. 🙁
Once a long time ago when I was absolutely BROKE, I bought myself a new boombox, complete with TWO tape decks and a CD player. The very next day while I was at work, someone kicked in the door to my flat and stole it. That was literally the only thing worth stealing in that flat. Aside from the normal feeling of violation at having my flat invaded… the idea that they must have seen me on my way home and followed me. ICK.

@tksjewelry: Someone stole my cat too! Assholes!
@MrsPanda99: One time my car was broken into RIGHT in front of our driveway’s security camera. They took my GPS, ipod, loose change, and my car registration. The paper boy saw them breaking into cars and called the cops. 2 of the 4 kids got caught and one just so happened to be my own cousin! He apparently had “no idea it was my car.” I never got my shit back either. It makes Christmas super awkward. I felt *so* violated afterwards.

@tksjewelry: @FutureDrAtkins: I cannot imagine someone stealing my pet! OMG. Who does that? What a bunch of assholes!
@prahajess: Thank god you weren’t home when they broke into your place! How terrifying.

When I was still in school, someone broke into my car and got literally everything that was important to me- phone, wallet (ID, credit cards, drivers license), passport, makeup bag, school books and even clothes from an overnight bag. I had hidden my laptop under my seat and thankfully, the thief missed it. I had all my final papers due the next week and I literally would have failed the semester if they had taken the computer- I was so grateful to see it that it kind of softened the blow about everything else. Ironically, I had left everything in my car since the electronic lockers at my gym weren’t working and I wanted it to be safe.

Having something taken from you is one of the worst feelings. Why do people think they can just take something that belongs to someone else???
In college, my roommate stole my wallet and graphing calculator (and a few other things). It’s a long story, but it was very upsetting having a so-called “friend” sit there and watch all the inconveniences that put me through canceling my credit card, having to get a new license, etc.
2 years ago, just 6 weeks after we moved in, our house was broken into. The burglars stole a bunch of electronics (our laptops, projector, ipad-I also could not stop thinking about all the pictures I lost off my computer), alcohol (teenagers), but worst of all, my wedding band. DH (then FI) put it in a small safe, which they stole. It was very upsetting-for DH most of all.

Yep! I’ve had my purse stolen. That sucked–Especially since it happened when I was REALLY dirt broke, and losing that $10 meant I didn’t have grocery money for two weeks.

Someone broke into my car and stole DDs iPad. Luckily it was easily replaceable. I hope that person felt good about themselves when they opened it and saw hundreds of toddler games on there.. My iPhone was stolen a few years back which was quite traumatic as it had naked pics and such that I had sent to then bf and never deleted.

A friend of mine technically had her cat stolen too! But she got him back after he’d been missing for two weeks. Turned out a group of local young children had “catknapped” him and were keeping him in a garage as their pet. Finally a parent found him and called her ASAP.
I can’t think of anything tangible of mine that was stolen and never returned. “Friends” of mine used to often take things without asking and eventually I’d get them back by the item mysteriously returning or me seeing that person with the item and confronting them. I had to share a locker in high school with a girl who constantly took my stuff or loaned it out to her friends (like my CD player). My friends and I eventually evicted her from my locker. A friend of mine with her own locker agreed to move into mine and share so we took all the other girls stuff out put it in a new locker, changed the locks and slapped our own made up eviction notice on my locker with the location of her new locker. Sure it was immature, it was freshman year, but it still makes me laugh.
Online someone stole my credit card number and signed me up for some mysterious service based in Utah. No idea what it was but the bank took care of it all for me.

I had a pair of Tanzanite earrings stolen from me by a step-family member… Either that or one of their friends? Can’t prove it, but… its the only thing that could have happened to them 🙁 My grandmother got them for me! But thats really it, I have been lucky thus far.

My car was broken into one Friday afternoon while I was at the dog park… they stole my purse. I didn’t have any money, no debit card to get money, and no driver’s license to go to the bank and personally withdraw money :/ I had to file a police report and go through the entire weekend relying on my very wonderful friends to buy me dinner.
Luckily, someone found my day planner (with my license and a very precious photo of my dog) in a dumpster and called a number I had written down in there for a coworker. Poor coworker thought I had been abducted and murdered! I came to work on Monday and everyone was SO relieved I was alive! Haha, it’s funny now I guess. Anyway, I did get back my ID and a few other things, but my money was gone and my cards had been used fraudulently (but thanks to my police report I was not responsible for those charges).

I’ve had a lot of things stolen – purse, car (got it back), money, things from my garage, even toys from me when I was a kid. It’s the worst feeling, regardless of what it is that’s stolen.
@MrsPanda99: I hope against hope you somehow get your phone back, that really sucks! I’m so sorry that happened to you.
