After much reading around this forum, I've found out that plenty of horror stories happened to lot of you. You than shared them here, warning us what not to do. That is really great, but usually those are negative stories with a bad ending. I want to create a thread where people share there positive stories. Whether you have been lucky, gifted or any great story with a happy ending. Hope you like my idea, I'll start with mine.
It happened about a month ago. I was going to sleep at my girlfriend's house. She lives in a calm city where there's almost never any action. She lives 1 minute of walk away to a police station. I always leave everything into my car, parked in front of her house. That day, I had all my camera gear + my iPad in my car, in a big sport bag, with my clothing. I usually have my clothes in her room but that day I had no more boxers. I went to my car and instead of searching in my bag for a pair of boxers, I simply took it inside. Didn't want to search outside, it was raining and dark. Her parent's weren't there, they were coming back from a trip to New York late this night. We went in bed and felled asleep. Suddenly, her father wakes me up in a hurry. ''David, David, David!!! Wake up, wake up!! We're just back from New York and when we parked, we notice someone was inside your car, like if he was looking for things to steal. I ran to your car and as soon as he saw me, he ran away.'' I than went outside, in my car to see if he stole me anything and found out, horrified, that my sport bag wasn't there anymore. All my camera gear + iPad I paid with hard earned money was gone. I am not insured for theft in car's policy as it was too high for me, poor student that I was. Neither any of my gear was insured. I had a panic moment before I remembered that I picked it up earlier because I was needing a pair of boxer. The guy stole nothing, there was nothing else to take.
I was very, very lucky that day.
So, let's here your great stories below, that was mine
