My Car

I bought a 1993 Ford Escort in 1998 after an accident which made me lose my beloved 1983 red Izuzu Impulse. Jan and I wanted to to have more of a family car, so we got the Escort. No more than 6 months later, I was in an accident which damaged the complete passenger side. The doors or windows would never be able to open. I got a check from the insurance agency to fix it, but bills were piling up so much when I was married, I had to pay them off and never got the car fixed. When Jan left me in 1999, I wound up with the car. Up until I both the computers, it was the only real possession I owned.

This morning as I was walking out of the house to go to dialysis, I saw that the small back window on the driver's side had been broken into. I didn't really have anything in the car to take. just a black felt cowboy hat and a little change in a little cup. Nothing major, but it was the principle of the thing. My car... MY CAR. My car was broken into. It had never happened to me before. I've never been robbed physically. This was wrong.

I called the police and five minutes later, someone came out and took the report. They told me that I would have to go out to one of the police stations to have the car fingerprinted, which I did. I was very late for dialysis, but I didn't really care.

It was around 2:30 when I finally showed up at the clinic, but I had to replace the broken glass were the window was. So, I got some cardboard and some thick tape and sealed it the best way that I could. It won't really stop anyone else from breaking in, but at least I know there's nothing there for them to take. I hope.

I feel violated. The fact that someone would go into my private property and take what is mine is wrong. How dare the thief do that to me. I'm angry, upset, and tired all at the same time. It's not pimped out. All it does is take me to dialysis and back, for the most part. I hope the God the police find out who did it. Please, God. Don't let this man walk free from this.

Back in '95 I was the victim of a home burglary. The feeling of violation and confusion--it's hard. It got to where I eventually had to move in order to get peace of mind. I hope it goes better for you.

Damn, damn, damn. I hope they catch the jackass, Sam, and you get some closure on this.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward to your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
