Smash and Grab!

Have you heard of the new trend in Christmas gift getting?


All you need is a crow bar, a little knowledge, and quick fingers.  Before anyone knows what's happening, you can have yourself a stereo, sub woofer or anything else that would merit money from the local pawn shop! 


Leave the scene as quickly as you can.  You don't want to see the owner of the vehicle take the time to clean out the broken glass, call the police, (knowing it will do no good) then begin his cold, dark, hour long commute back home, with no window...or music!  


From now on, we're leaving the doors unlocked! Instead of "smash and grab", it will be just grab!  It's less messy and less expensive!

Sorry to hear what happened to your car and to you. Happy Holidays, huh? Hope insurance covered it... More than that, its just the inconvenience of it all. It's gotta get better from here, right? Here's a nice warm {{HUG}} from me. Wish we could sit and talk over a nice warm cup of hot chocolate! With whipped cream. My treat.

Natalie said...

I'm so sorry Connie. I think that is just so terrible. I just can't believe people would do something like that.

Our friends while serving a mission in Brussels had a similar situation. They were stopped at a traffic light when a guy stepped in front of their car. His partner smashed the door on the passenger side with a something and then stole her purse right off her lap.

We are back in town. Let's get together so I can give you a big hug.

That is HORRIBLE! That happened to us 4 TIMES in SLC in the 2 years we lived there. We haven't had anything like that happen since we have lived for 2 1/2 years in Texas. You should make the move...I'm tellin ya.

Connie! That is so awful. I am so sorry. Too bad the police won't help. Way to turn it into something funny on your blog though : )

Valerie said...

Well that just stinks! We've had a few experiences with this as well. That broken glass is a mess to clean up!!! On the plus side...I bet you know someone who needs a new car stereo for Chrismtas, just in case you were running low on ideas! :)

If you lived in Arizona this would not happen. Dad, For Christmas I will find that guy in Jeanettte's ward, tie his arms behind is back, put a big Red Bow on him, and Kick him in the Butt up to your doorstep. That way you can tell him what a lying, stealing,brainless, heartless,......... Sack of ....... you get the idea! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Mikki said...

OH my gosh. That just sucks. I'm so sorry. I hope they find the skunk responsible.

THE BADGERS said...

Dave,
I think I could get you a nice RV to travel in style to get that guy. Just don't go falling in love with it...

Rebecca said...

Oh man, I'm so sorry. The whole thing is awful, but then to add a drive home with no window in December...pure torture. I hope the thief drops the stereo on his/her foot and breaks all toes.

Valerie said...

Ugh. I'm sure you can give the police the decription of the person who did this: He is a grumpy guy with a green face, walks around with a dog that has an antler tied to its head and mumbles a lot. If you x-ray his chest you'll see that his heart is 3 sizes too small.

So sorry that such a terrible thing happened!

Doran & Jody said...

Grr...that irritates me!

Cortney had her car broke in last week to and they stole her wallet and other things. They also got her roommates car. In Provo!!

Why do people have to be so mean?

M-Cat said...

This just plain BITES!

Some dumbbutt at my house left the garage open all night and someone got into my car and my husbands but luckily they were unlocked so no smashing and nothing to grab so no grabbing.

Still......VIOLATED!
