Well I received my first criminal act last night. Just like Brian's it was not too terrible. It could have been a lot worse.
I came home from work a little after 5:00 and noticed my back door was unlocked. The outer door was still locked so I assumed I just forgot to lock it when I left. I entered and went about my daily routine. Opened up Peanut Butter and went out front to get the mail.
A few minutes later I went into the bathroom to put something away. As I was leaving the latrine I noticed glass all on the floor under the kitchen window.
Now I started to panic, what's going on, why is the window smashed through? I start to think, wait, PB was there, and my TV and stuff. What's going on?
So are almost all my games, including the PS2 ones. Well that's pretty f*cked up. How come they just took the GameCube? I looked around again, still nothing else seemed to be missing. That's bizarre.
I called the cops and relayed the info to them. I called my parents (my mom works for my insurance agency so it was a double whammy.) Thank God I have insurance. And I called my band mates, as I was supposed to go to rehearsal.
So now I have a report and if the thieves try to pawn it I know the GameCube's serial number, etc. What a pain in the ass though.
I also notice they took all the money out of my change jar. I'm not sure how much, but last time I emptied it I got almost $50 after the machine at the grocery store took it's "commission" (yes I'm too lazy to roll it myself.) And they took all my collected coins, nothing significant, just nostalgic things I got from relatives or my own personal travels. They missed the only coin I'm confident is worth anything.
So it really wasn't something like they cleaned me out and now I have to worry about losing work, and re-buying things like crazy. But it's still unsettling to know a couple of losers broke into my living space and made off with stuff. Even if I don't get to play video games as much as I used to. Now I don't even have the memory cards with all the saved data on them. I get to start from scratch on everything.

No pros here
I guess we should be thankful we get attacked by non-Pro thieves. Jake this should prove to you once and for all it's too dangerous in CT, that you should move to a safe city like Boston. They only get you on the streets of Cambridge up here. ;-)
