While we were sleeping peacefully, in the early hours of this morning, someone broke into our house, and stole our notebook computer and my purse! We know it was early hours, because our 13-year-old daughter didn’t go to bed until about 4AM, and we were up by 8AM. The first thing we noticed wrong was that the notebook computer that was sitting on our dining room table last night wasn’t on the table this morning. Our first thought was that our daughter had taken it to her room for some reason, but we woke her up, and she said not. Then I started looking around, and dammit, my purse is gone, too! We called the theft-notification number for my Visa/debit card, and the guy at the call-center said that someone tried to use it at an ATM this morning, and entered the wrong PIN three times.
We reported it to the cops. I’d heard that this kind of burglary was way up in this area, due to the big increase in heroin usage in the past year.
Those motherfuckers took our stuff, and it pisses me off! I mean, I know it’s only stuff, and it can be replaced, but it still pisses me off.
