Well after a few threads about cars being broken into, and me being very thankfull that mine had never had this happen to it... That all changed Saturday night. I was staying at my girlfriends house that night because we went to a little house party get together thing... got home about 1:30 in the morning, partied a little more after we got home and went to sleep. MrBlk was with me that night and he was crashing there too, so in the morning he went out to my car to get his cellphone, and low and behold my drivers side rear quarter-window had a chunk of concrete about the size of a football thrown though it. My laptop case was what they were after. Although my laptop was not in it (it doesnt work right now, so it was at home), however I was using the case as a backpack for college. They stole the case and it had some of my books and binders / misc. school things in it, but thats it. They didn't even open the door to get inside, just grabbed the bag though the window and took off. I don't really understand how I didn't hear it, I was probably sleeping 15 feet from where it happened right next to a window, and she lives in a private neighborhood, so i figure it was one of the neighbors (all college students). End Cost: $150 for new books, $70 for a new laptop case if i get one, $200 for the window. Not enough to bother to tell the insurance about (wouldnt have even been more than the deductable.) Part 2: Last night I went over to my moms house and was talking to her about some things, including what happened to my car. She had her early 90's accord stolen about 3 years ago. When they caught the guy (after a few months) he was still driving it around. The Insurance company totaled her car because it had been stolen for so long, the guy served LESS THAN A WEEK in jail and had to pay my mom $700 for the loss of her personal belongings in the car. Anyhow. She had her new Civic broken into last night after I talked to her. It seems like they jimmyed the window down enough to unlock the door (somehow without breaking it.) They tore apart the steering column and tried to get it started, but were unsuccessfull. She called the cops (it was 5am, when she goes to work) and they told her to call back in a bit after the morning dew went away and they would send out fingerprint people.. so they did. They think they got a couple good prints from it. She had to have her car towed to the Honda dealer to get her window and steering column replaced. hexen makes mad face . Fuck thieves.
