Worst. Thieves. Ever.

I hadn't posted this before, but about a week ago, our car was robbed. We are bothered by the theft, but most people probably wouldn't have laughed as much as we have about the theft. The car was left intact, my parents think they might have forgotten to lock the doors, but they did fiddle with our belongings.

As far as we can tell, this is what the thieves got away with:

  • A couple of bluegrass CDs
  • An opera CD
  • A few musical soundtracks
  • A free CD we got from the Michigan Marching Band
  • An empty CD jewel case for a PDQ Bach CD (which was in the CD player and therefore unstolen)
  • A free calculator which doesn't display the final number
Apparently this wasn't the first time that our family has shown itself to be the worst targets for thieves. Dad said that when he was in college he got mugged; the thieves stole his wallet, which contained his school ID and driver's license, but no cash or credit cards. They didn't even get the eighteen cents he had in his pockets.

So basically, what I'm trying to say is:

Hey potential thieves,

You probably shouldn't try to steal from us because we don't really have anything worth stealing. In all likelihood, you'll just get some crap that you won't be able to sell.
