    Default People that break into cars

    OK. That's it. I've had it. I have to rant a little bit.

    My cars have been broken into 3 times in 2 years since moving to Miami. Last night someone broke the lock on my Tahoe, Broke the steering column and ignition switch, ripped my DVD player out, stole my radio control car, DVD's, CD's, gouged my dash, and took my briefcase containing nothing more than documents important to no one else but my clients and I.

    Here's my message to anyone out there even thinking about breaking into a car: I can't wait for the day that I actually catch you. I don't care how many times you scream, I will not stop beating you. I am 6'4" and 250 pounds of former heavyweight boxing champion just waiting for the day, and I will take all the frustrations out for the previous 3 offendors on YOU. If you don't have the wherewithall or ability to make enough money for yourself to own nice things like the things I have, LIVE WITH IT. Working, normal people are getting fed up with working their asses off to buy nice things only to have them swiped by some moraless chump to the point where vigalantism is beginning to sound like a great option.

    Now, my message to insurance companies. I pay a premium every month for your services. When I require your services, I have to pay another premium. After I receive your services, you charge me a higher premium every month regardless of whether anything was my fault. I was told that I cannot file another claim this year (this would make a whopping 3rd time this year) or I will be dropped. WHAT ARE YOU THERE FOR? I figured I have paid over $50,000 in 15 years of driving. Thanks for the $1,000 check to cover the damages for my only accident that wasn't my fault. Sure am glad to know you have my back. And thanks for nothing when Hurricane Dennis threw a tree into my house and ripped the plumbing up in my yard and it wasn't covered under my very expensive wind policy.

    There. I feel better. I'm going to go break something now.

    DANG! Sorry to hear about that. That sucks.

    I've had my car broken into only once. That sucked. The best offense of a good defense, so I keep my Chevies parked in the garage or on the driveway with two 70 watt bulbs covering either side of the garage all night long.

    I've had vehicles broken into before. Even in my own driveway about 10 years ago I suppose. Not good times at all.

    This would be a funny poll to get a lot of responses to...

    Default Things are much better for now...

    So far, so good. I didn't bother filing a police report (I had a couple of beers at the restaurant it was parked at). I also did not bother filing a claim (why pay the insurance company when I can just put it into replacing the stuff I lost?). I beefed up the alarm that I had installed, replaced all the goodies I had, remove my faceplate whenever I leave the truck, and park only in well-lit, well populated places. One of my friends had a great idea- park in a not- so well lit area and hide inside for the night. See what happens. Sure would feel good to catch somebody making the attempt.

    Now starting to get motivated to get the '07 Tahoe. What a beauty. Got to get to makin' some money...

    Sorry about getting your Tahoe smacked around. Your briefcase probably ended up in the dumpster at the Wendy's parking lot across town or something like that.
