DEAR BURGLAR

Yeah, you got me! Despite the fact that you broke into our garage and stole stuff out of our cars; stuff we found strewn throughout the neighborhood, I have just two things, well, three things to say to you today.
1. I forgive you
2. You better be glad we don't own a gun or a big hungry dog
3. I really don't like you. You have earned the title Rat Bastard which I only give to someone really, really horrible and deserving

Just a friendly message to anyone out there who wants to avoid the horrible invasion of having someone ransack your stuff and take what they want...be aware. Lock everything. Walk around the neighborhood with angry scowls, talk about how you know jujitsu and how you can't keep your big dog from chewing up your car tires. Watch your neighbors homes like they were yours. If you see a strange car parked in front of your house...follow your gut and get a better look. And, above all, leave mean notes on your blog so if the burglar happens to be a fan he {yup, we know it was a man burglar} will know he is the official Rat Bastard you are talking about.

OH NOOOOOOO!!!! Being stolen from is the worst feeling in the world. While you've forgiven the Rat Bastard, I'll stay mad at him for you. That way you don't have it on your conscience and all.

About a year ago I found a note my dad had written to my mom. He's something of a romantic and is always leaving love notes around for her. So I decided to take one for a keepsake because it was so sweet.
It seems so strange, but this note, which I keep in a little compartment in my car, was gone. RAT BASTARD

Holy crap! That really sucks! Why would someone take that note though??? I hate him for doing that to you.

Nate and I are going to the taser store tonight. You hear that burgler. TASER store!

I'm sorry. Maybe there's some sort of alarm system that is on a motion detector that sounds like a vicious chihuahua. So when they come near your house, they are afraid of having theirs ankles bitten. That keeps my neighbors away.

oh my! i am so grossed out by this (does that make sense even)...it just creeps me out. there are lots of robberies where we live and i am always paranoid about it. i'm so so sorry this happened!

My warning to everyone is just lock your doors. The sad part is, if someone really needed something I'd try to help them get it...no need to steal from me!!

Holly said...

Wow, I can't believe that happened! The last time we were at your house you had just gotten your alarm system!!! How did they know there was no alarm in the garage? Hmm... Suspicious indeed. He'll get what's coming to him. Somehow, in some way, he WILL!
I hope you can get over this and feel safe in your sweet home again soon!
