Don't stress it, sweetie! But do try to not to react when a member "goes for your throat!"
They don't know you.
They've never met you.
So it can't be personal.
And in all likelihood, they have a classifiable personality disorder!
So sorry to hear that, Jim. At least the insurance paid out.
Makes me even more happy to live here, in rural Japan, where (no joke!) every summer you can see cars outside convenience stores, doors unlocked, keys in the ignition, engine running (to keep the aircon working!), personal possessions on any/all the seats...and NOBODY steals a thing.
Thank you. It was already a bad day so it probably made things a little worse to start with - it made me cry, which is absolutely silly. I just have so much hope for this.. you know all about the back story.
Hey - in rural Missouri we leave our keys in our cars engines running winter and summer - heat in the winter, a/c in the summer. No one steals our cars either. It isn't as good as one of the Colorado resort towns though (not sure if it is Aspen or Breckenridge or some such). There was a news story years back about the habit of "borrowing" - people left their cars with the keys in and as long as you returned it to where you got it, no one bothered with reporting theft. Well, someone began to take advantage and leave the cars other places, and the inconvenience of having to hunt down their cars (still with the keys in them) was pressuring the city council to pass an ordinance defining the problem as illegal and giving the police power to deal with the person without making it a felony and something terrible, just annoying enough to hopefully make the "borrowers" behave more considerately again...
Very off topic. Umm... sometimes I use my vehicle to go buy things for my camera! True story!
