Yes, my Sunday morning started out with Jim standing next to the bed telling me that the van had been stolen. I wish I had been with him when he opened the garage and was met with half an empty drive way. He said he just stared for several minutes until it sunk in.
I called the police. They came. While waiting for them I realized that my purse was gone off the kitchen table. Yes, the brand new replacement Miche base that they were kind enough to send as a replacement for the original that tore. I only got it last week! And my favorite faux reptile lime green shell was on it too!
Wait, I got side tracked. My mini van was stolen. Who the hell steals a mini van? Seriously?! I mean, it was totally cool and all. There were some cool CDs inside. My Barry Manilow is lost forever. But a mini van. I read somewhere that the current economy means car thieves will be stealing more mundane vehicles. Proof right here!
The worst part is the purse though. This is the second time I’ve had a purse stolen. I cancelled all my credit cards. I got a copy of my credit report and started calling. Some places were easier than others. Some places had incorrect telephone numbers listed on the credit report. But with the help of the internet, everything was cancelled within an hour.
Here is my advice for you: pull out your wallet right now, throw your credit cards on the scanner and scan them. Flip them all over and scan them again. Put aside somewhere will you remember. This way if your wallet is lost or stolen, it’s easy to get the ones you carry regularly cancelled.
Whatever you do, do not fill out the ID card supplied by Target in my new wallet. They ask for name, address, social security number, checking account number, and other very personal information. You know, the stuff we are warned not to share. That’s my public service announcement.
I have no idea what will happen. Store cards are lost. I’m most sad over the loss of my Lou Malnati’s card…we were close to a pizza, dammit!
I’m waffling between freaking out and remaining zen. Mostly I want to punch the person who did this…
