A little over a week ago my car was broke into. Maybe "broke into" isn't the correct term as I am fairly certain I left my car unlocked, which is something I never do. I assume that since my husband's car, parked right next to mine and with far fewer dents and scrapes and a couple years newer, was not entered. It was a Friday morning and when I went out to put my crying child (refusal to sleep the night before makes a very, very difficult morning) in the car that morning before dawn to head to school, I noticed there were CDs strewn about my front seat. For half a second I thought they had fallen there. Then I noticed the glove box that was open and I instantly knew someone had been in my car.
I ran inside to get my husband. I looked around the car and saw no damage and even had the wherewithall to check the trunk, obviously the thief did not have such common sense or got scared because nothing in the trunk was touched. I initially didn't think anything was taken from my car. All the CDs in my car were of the type, "Veggie Tales sing the 70s" or "The Wheels on the Bus," neither of which get much money on the black market, I assume. It wasn't until I was driving my kiddo to school a few minutes later that I tought to check the compartment in the console between the front seats. That is when I noticed a zippered black CD case was gone.my
