Mean People Really Suck

You may recall that I was quite upset recently about the thief who stole my two peonies. Well, another jackhole broke into our house tonight and stole Thom's laptop and our digital camera. That's right, blog fans - no more digital photos for a while of the kitchen. Both things were not new nor expensive but it's just the idea that some stranger was in our house. Yuck. The weird thing was that these were the only things taken - only 10 feet away was Thom's Wii and his games, two checks on our mantle, and a bunch of power tools they walked by on the back porch. Probably stupid kids. I'm going to check out some pawn shops tomorrow and look for the stuff. Jerks. I'm thinking about putting another passive-aggressive note in the window. Any suggestions? I thought about saying something like "Cash reward for information on our stolen computer and camera" and then not actually giving out any reward when they tell us who did it. They'd probably steal more stuff then though. A-holes.

This is AWFUL news! I am really sorry to hear it! Big hugs to you and Thom.

Sorry to hear it. When you get the next laptop, consider registering it with a service like LocateMyLaptop.com. It's sorta like LoJack. When the laptop is stolen you notify the company and it activates a tracker in the laptop. Whenever the laptop logs into the internet it sends its location to the company, which then notifies you. You can meet the creep down at the Starbucks and beat him over the head with it.

Dude - that SUCKS! There was a kid last year who was breaking in & stealing purses & laptops in our neighborhood - the cops caught him red-handed the day AFTER they showed the story on the news - the dummy didn't have the sense to quit after everyone was out looking for him. Sorry that happened--at least he can't steal your awesome cabinet refacing job.

Boo, mean people do suck! We got robbed a few years ago and had the same 2 items taken as you guys did. I like the "gun cleaning" advice:)
