My house was fucking broken into today.

My kitties are fine. The only thing stolen (so far as I can tell) was my husband's beautiful new iBook. Sorry, picoland. Too, they ruined a window: cut the screen and screwed up the track.

But they rifled through my things - they touched them, and they were in my house. MY house. MY space. MY little supposed safe haven.

I hate hate hate that I thought I had it together, then almost burst into tears when the operator asked me my address, etc.

This. Blows.
I feel: angrybloody furious

*hugs* That is completely awful. I wish there was something I could do, up to and including finding this person and trying out your stage weapons on them.

Why use stage weapons when real ones would hurt so much more?

*huge hugs*

I know how you feel! I was 13 when my house was broken into. I was in one part and he came in the other part of the house on the other side. Thank the Gods I had my dog Tony. He was part German Shepard, part doberman (I think). Scared him away with our VCR and $13 out of my wallet that was zipped in my purse in that part of the house. I didn't realize it even happened until later that night. But all day I kept wondering how the dog kept getting outside. Some people just really suck!

Oh! That is awful, how violating. *hugs* I have had an entire house worth of stuff stolen... it is terrible. Even if you are insured, it is the idea that someone can just rifle through your stuff and take things randomly that is most upsetting.

Thank goodness you and the kitties are OK, though!

Oh gosh. *hugshard* That's terrible.

I'm glad you didn't walk in on him/them... Glad to hear that you and Don weren't there and the kitties are ok..

awww man......

and you're up in the sticks too..... damn that just sucks real bad.

Jobs, baby, Jobs!picoland on July 29th, 2005 10:22 am (UTC)
Ill put an apb out on the iBook - if I can flag it,I will. Don't know what'll happen- but get a police report- your homeowners should cover it but unfortunately it won't give Don back all the work he had on it.l
that's the craptacular part.
Goddessavhi on July 29th, 2005 02:59 am (UTC)

Holy shit i'm so sorry hon! Thank goodness they didn't get much, but.....bastards!

Is there anything that any of us could do to help?
Kel: starmanladyjoust on July 29th, 2005 09:52 pm (UTC)
Thanks, sweetie, but I think we're fine.

Well, you can give me a huge hug tomorrow. That would be nice! :)

You know... I don't know if I remembered to tell you at the time (Mostly cause I was embarrassed cause in playing out it felt mighty lame) but those were 'Sorry You Were Burgled' Cookies. I couldn't think of anything better to do. Just in case I didn't say anything... and the occasion of random cookies struck you as weird.
Kel: Robin wildladyjoust on July 31st, 2005 02:03 am (UTC)
I knew exactly what those cookies were. I do the selfsame thing with books: "I didn't know what to do, so I bought you 'Because of Winn-Dixie.'"

And they were YUMMY!!!!!!
melkorspawn on July 31st, 2005 04:39 am (UTC)
Well, at least that worked out. I accidentally messed up the recipe... they got nutmeg and mace from the ginger cookie recipe on the next page. :)

Just remember, eventually they'll get what's coming to them.

I have a friend whose purse was stolen a while back. They found the bastard dead of a cocaine overdose a couple weeks later with her purse, credit cards, and the wallets and purses of everbody else he'd robbed for his habit...

*sending much huggage and good thoughts*

How awful...I know how safe and happy you were in your house. It's awful, even if they had stolen nothing, but just gone through your things. I've been there and you just feel violated...I feel terrible for you.

Oh my God!
There will be lots of hugging going on this weekend. I'm sure the things lost/damaged will be covered under your home owner's insurance. I'm so glad you didn't come home while they were in the middle of it! I share your feelings of indignation, violation, wrath, etc.!!!!!!!!
ckbhckbh on July 29th, 2005 01:19 pm (UTC)
There's nothing worse than one's personal sanctuary being tampered.
All I can say is that the Karma Gods will get the bastard.
Mayatheatre4me on July 29th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Oh man, that just sucks! I am just very glad that you, Don and the kitties are ok.
Ilena Ayalanetsearcher on July 29th, 2005 07:54 pm (UTC)
That sucks. :(

The unfortunate reality is that a lot of stolen stuff like that just never gets recovered; police have limited time to investigate crimes where people weren't hurt or killed.

The whole issue with having your personal space intruded on like that *really* sucks. It's your home; a person *should* be able to feel safe there, and feel their things are safe.

A lot of break ins happen during the day, when people are at work. You might want to leave a tv/radio on when you are gone. And follow up with the PD to see if there are any other break ins in the area.
Kelladyjoust on July 29th, 2005 09:53 pm (UTC)
Actually, there was at least one other break in not too far away, and the officer seemed to think that there had been a rash of them that day.

Sorry to hear that even in the sticks there are freaks who feel they can go and take whatever they want -- it sucks. Hugs coming your way this weekend.
