I typically drive about once a week. Lately, that once a week has been on Sundays, driving to work because I've been incredibly busy. This doesn't generally make me happy, really.
Well, today I need to drive to work again. I go down to the underground parking garage--the underground parking garage that I pay extra for the convenience and safety of it in my "luxury apartment complex"--and about 2 parking spots away, I press the button on my keyfob to unlock it. It does. I hop in and stick my key in the ignition.
Then, I discover that there are things where they shouldn't be. There are some stamps on the console just in front of my shifter. There's a broken air freshener on the passenger side floor. My phone charger is not in the center console but on the floor.
I remember that our apartment complex sent out an email a couple of days earlier saying that some people had their cars broken into and some stuff stolen. Well, Saturday on the way out, my boyfriend and I drove by slowly to take a close gander at my car. No broken windows, and I always lock my car. I also never leave anything of value in it.
This morning, though, I'm suddenly not certain that I'd locked my car. I had stopped by Wednesday morning to pull some marketing materials out of it from my trip to SD in order to bring them back to my office. Everything was fine, then.
I hop out of my car and open my trunk. Stuff that was normally at the very front of the trunk, nearest the back seat was pulled to the back of the trunk and rifled around. OH, I was pissed.
I pull my car out and drive to the front of the building to give the office staff some whatfor. Except they don't get there till noon on Sundays. I. Have. To. Get. To. Work.
So, I take a quick trot back up to my apartment (after locking the car, of course), and ask my boyfriend when the last time he drove his "good" car. About a week. Did you check to make sure it hasn't been broken into? Why....? Mine was.
He comes out to check my car out and notices something that I hadn't...they'd punched my lock in and pulled my door handle partially out.
Now, I'm furious.
|Yes, it's that dirty. It gets driven maybe 1 time a week.|
So, I get off to work almost an hour after I intended to, and I'm grumpy. Really grumpy. And I worked for 10 straight hours. I could have come home an hour earlier. But no.
Some people definitely need to be beaten.
