Yesterday, I went out to my car to go to my institute class, and the first thing I noticed when I got in was that my glove box was open and the contents were strewn all over the floor of my car. Well, at first I just assumed that my glove box had just fallen open (my car's old enough that that wouldn't surprise me). But as I started to put everything away, I noticed that the ash tray was also open. That's when I realized I'd been robbed.
Well, I still didn't think much of it. Okay, they took my Maverik card and whatever loose change was in the ash tray, but there was nothing in my car worth stealing. Or so I thought...until I remembered my CD case. I checked the location where I normally hide it. Sure enough, my CD case, containing every CD I own but one, was gone. Granted, I have all the music on my computer, so I haven't technically lost anything in that regard, and I can burn all the music onto CDs again, but there's just something about having the actual original CD that I really love, and now because of some jerk who has no morals and couldn't think of anything better to do with his life than steal something from someone who never did anything to bring this upon herself (*breath*) has taken that away from me!
The only CD I have left to my name is my Steven Sharp Nelson Tender Mercies CD, because that's what happens to be in my CD player at the moment. It also just so happens to be my favorite CD, so I guess I'll count that as a small silver lining to the whole situation. Additionally, I have to just remember to count my blessings. My loss is not nearly as bad as what some people experience in this regard. And there are plenty of other things that I could have had stolen from me that would have been a lot more traumatic. Of all the things that could have been stolen from me, the CDs are probably going to have the fewest repercussions. But it doesn't mean I have to like this whole blasted situation.
So basically, I think that anyone who steals should die. Because they really have a way of ruining someone's day.
