My wife called me from work this morning to let me know that someone had broken into her car last night. She stopped at a gas station and looked for her wallet – then she noticed papers from the glovebox on the floor, the rear window of her SUV was messed up, bike rack hanging off, cell phones gone… So we’ve deactivated the credit cards and cell phones, filed a police report and reported it on Nation of Neighbors so our neighbors know to be alert.
The irony of our July newsletter focusing on avoiding vehicle break-ins is not lost on me. If there’s a silver lining here, it’s that they really didn’t get anything of value except some useless plastic, a couple of now useless cell phones and some photos of our kids we very much wish we still had. That, and I have a very good reminder of why I’ve worked so hard to build Nation of Neighbors over the past few years.
We’re coming for you, punks.
