Happy Friday the Thirteenth!

This is the sight that greeted me this morning. Well, what actually woke me up was my neighbor stopping by let me know that our car had been broken into- then I saw the car.

Who ever did this should be totally ashamed of themselves: not only because they are a thieving vandal, but because this is totally an amateur job. I'm sick of people not taking the time to a job right. Whatever you do, take some pride in it. Seriously, breaking a window to get into a 1992 Honda? Totally overkill. These cars are known for their ease of stealing the whole car, let alone the swiftness with which you can unlock the manual locks with a coat hanger. Come on! Try a little. Why not take the entire car? If you settle for this level of amateur smash-and-grab you're never going to get anywhere.

Also, they totally need to learn how to target a better radio if that's what they are after. We had a cheap after-market radio in the car. The brand was Kenwood, I think. Ever heard of Kenwood? Didn't think so. Next time, steal a Sony. Did a 1992 Honda strike you as likely to have a particularly nice sound system? Actually, the cheap Kenwood radio didn't work properly. Once you turned it off, you probably can't get it back on again, which means you stole a box of useless wires, so I guess the joke's on you. The front speakers in the car don't work either, but you courteously left them in place.

If you were going to be truly courteous, you would have broken the windshield. It costs much less to replace and is easier to install too.

Oh, no! That's horrible! I'm so sorry this happened to you. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. *hugs*

Grrr... doesn't that make you want to sock em'? The floor mats were probably worth more than the stereo.

If we could only refer your perpetrator to some sort of vandal/destruction/smashing/ theiving mentor - like the who smashed up our car 1 1/2 years ago! Too bad he's in prison. That would have been a good match.

I'm so sorry dear. If I ever run into the vandal/thief, I will beat him several about the head and shoulders--which is always what I want to do to vandals. Love, Toots

That stinks. But if I know anyone who can turn misfortune into a HILARIOUS blog post, it's you Kara.

You have a gift.

You could probably use said gift to write hilarious things to sell and earn the money to replace the costly windows...?

Or, do you have insurance?

that radio was a real pos, you couldnt really scroll to listen to other radio stations, the only station i could listen to was ksl!!! I am glad whoever stole it got a big piece of crap, they may have done you a favor in removing it if they had not broken the window. Good thing the tint is dark on the 500, no one can see what you have inside.

As the third Sara(h) to post a comment on your blog, my initial thought when I saw the picture was "What a shame they didn't break the windshield instead."
