so I found out last night I didn’t have to go into work today b/c classes are cancelled at the university, so I didn’t find out until I left my house around 2pm. When I got to my car, the door was unlocked, my center console items and items in my glove box were on my passenger seat and had been clearly rifled through.
1) My Fiance and I bought our house in a decent area, so any activity recently is a new development. Makes me nervous.
2) I have manual locks, so part of it is my fault for not double checking the passenger side before I got out.
3) luckily, there was nothing in there but the mess of discarded bottles, some papers, some shoes, and other random crap. So nothing was broken and nothing was taken. I’m lucky, and I realize it could have been worse.
4) it was obvious they were looking for things they could easily grab in plain sight and weren’t more violent/trying to strip my car or anything (thank God!)
But I’m still nervous. The fact that someone was ON our property, and furthermore, in my car, freaks me out.
Good news: WE GOT OUR MARRIAGE LICENSE TODAY AND FINALIZED ALL THE DETAILS WITH THE RECEPTION SITE AND MENU!!

So sorry. I had my car broken into around this time last year. Such a horrible feeling of being violated.

This has been happening a lot in my area. Apparently some teenage kids go around at night and take anything they can from unlocked cars. They’re not breaking any windows or anything, but if it’s open, they think it’s fair game.
I’m really sorry this happened to you 🙁 Just try to keep an eye out and remember to lock your car!! It’s a shame that people do things like that.
But congrats on your marriage license!!

I had my car window busted out over christmas a few years ago when I had my convertible and lived in a sketchy part of town, but I think the car alarm scared them off. I finally became so paranoid driving a tiny car, that I traded it in a typical sedan that I have now. Oh, but it took like 2 weeks to get the window fixed, and since it was during christmas, I had to drive around without a window in the freezing cold. Talk about miserable!
Glad it wasn’t as bad this time!

about a year ago we had our jeep “broken into.” they didn’t really break into as the doors were unlocked. We are usually so good about locking doors, im not quite sure how we forgot, usually i hit the locks when we get out, then he hits it with the remote again to make sure. ALL my cd’s got stolen, and i mean dozens and dozens of cd’s that i was taking home with me from my house. And, what was worse, we were taking my friend to the airport and someone stole part of his luggage, what contained his ipod, his camera, nice clothing. thank god his tickets weren’t in the bag!

Oh no i’m sorry, it feels yucky to know someone has been going through your things.
A few years ago Fiance forgot to lock his car (he is usually really good about it), he lived in an apartment in the central city and the parking lot was down an alleyway. When we got to the car in the morning there was beer bottles in the back seat and one back door was left open- we are assuming that some drunks found it unlocked, sat in the back and drunk their beer. The funny thing is nothing else was touched – there was even spare change in the front that wasn’t touched! FI got very lucky that day!
