How to deal with your car broken into.
Today my car was broken into when hiking Ka’Iwi Park. After coming back around 3 hrs later I went to open my door and looked across and there lay my passenger door window shattered all over my seats and floor. My glove department was open and my black backpack was taken. Luckily the thief did not take my phone or wallent somewhat hidden in between my soda holders. The thief did get away with an awesome Canon Powershot with full professional waterproof camera case valued over $600 dollars. I didn’t really get upset about it at the scene how most people would react flipping out. To me it’s just another materialistic thing. I can replace it. I earn plenty enough through my home-based business that even if my car was stolen I’d say fuck the bastards.
At this very moment my roommates have come home eruptly drunk again. Noisy and undelightful to be around.
One thing I’m good at is moving forward. If I let myself become miserable over something I can not change and get back then I can not move forward. Yes, my full coverage insurance isn’t going to pay for my smashed window which will be another $250 bucks out of my pocket and yes I have no digital camera anymore I received for graduating boot camp, but it can be replaced.
So I forgive the thief and drive home with this smashed passenger door window with confidence that I can buy another window and get through it. Although I know its going to set me back some money I work really hard to get I also know that hey maybe that thief needed the money from that camera more then I do.
I think it was more stressful waiting for the police to fill out a police report, calling my insurance company finding out they don’t pay for it, and lastly that the window for my car model is out of stock and will have to be back ordered from the “main land”.
I feel I’ve coped with my small loss today pretty well. I haven’t even told anyone. I really don’t find it all that fascinating. Well, now the music is on and the drinking continues with the roommates who joked me for doing home-based business stuff. I guess the jokes on them now since I’ve been able over the past few months been able to save up quite a sum from doing One24 Online. I suppose instead of falling asleep her I will just go back to boat and sleep in my chill rack. I have softball games tomorrow (what fun!) and probably will play tennis inbetween. I got a really red sunburn today so I will be putting on lots of lotion.
If your car has been broken into please express your thoughts postive or negative. -P I have to admit when my sweet Nikon D40 SLR was stolen off a Philly AMTRACK train it was much worse due to the pictures on it were of my baby niece I took earlier that week. So remember if digital BACKUP BACKUP like on Flickr before it’s too late!
