I've had the absolute worst luck!

The past month has been horrid. 4 weeks ago my passenger side front panel was keyed. Lost my car for 2 days as it was in the body shop, also lost $250 to get that done. Last week, at the movie theater, some dumb ass hit my driver side door while he opened up his/her door. Took off the paint (about a inch wide) and left some scratches on my car. I again had the car in the body shop for 2 more days and lost another $250. I got my car back this past Monday and on Wednesday night someone broke into my car and stole $1200 in cash and my Ipod touch while my car was on my driveway. And no, I don't live in a bad neighborhood.

If you're wondering why I had money in my car, I had taken the money out of my bank account so i could purchase rims the next morning. Since I got home at 1 am and parked all the way up my driveway closest to my house I figured it wouldn't be a big deal to leave the money in the center console where I have left my Ipod since I bought the car back in October.

Now i'm convinced Becky is giving me some bad luck and am thinking about selling her. Freaking sucks I have to even think about something like that.

Sorry for long write up, I'm just venting.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck but I don't think you need to sell your car!

Someone hit mine tonight, no license, no insurance and that was the first thing I thought - I hope it doesn't become a target now :(

That sucks man, I have paranoid neighbors and 3 boxer dogs, if anyone comes by my house, people are watching, and if they come in. Remington 870 12 gauge will help them out.

I'm not sure if he was telling me there was something wrong with his brakes or he was braking but didn't stop in time. He didn't even understand when I was asking for a phone number. I think he apologized 100 times and I felt kinda bad when the cop showed up cause I know what's gonna happen to him, but he wrecked my baby so .

All the way home I kept telling myself it could have been worse but it didn't cheer me up none.

Wow, "justifiable homicide" seems to be the only phrase that comes to mind right now. I know the $1200 lost sucks, however, what kind of damage was done when they broke in?

CRAAAAP, so sorry!! I'd be a nervous wreck if anything every happened to my baby... Sucks for him but tough cookies, he should've stopped. Any idea what the damage is going to run you?

Not a clue. I don't even know where to take it.

I'm going to swing by the GM dealer tomorrow before work and talk to their body man.

(actually, it aint gonna cost me nothing, my insurance company said they'd cover it)

Did anyone know you had those $1,200 in your car besides you? Maybe you told someone you were going to the bank.... Just sounds too...coincidental to me.

I lost $300 bucks once and never used cash again...

You should get a debit card.

You left $1,200.00 in your console? What were you thinking? I won't even leave a magazine with my address on it in my car. In 1978 I had a mint 1970 Mercury Montego and it was stolen from my driveway in the middle of the night. The registration and title were in the glove box. I couldn't get paid from my insurance company until I got a duplicate title. That takes a long time in Massachusetts. They probably saw your Ipod and went for it. They got a bonus in the form of your $1,200.00. Keep your car and learn from this experience. I am sorry about your trouble.

Sorry to say this but I have to agree this this guy, cash is cash and EVEN if I could have my car parked in my garage I STILL wouldn't leave cash in it or ANYTHING valuable for that matter. Crooks are crooks and they will take anything, I learned early in life that I really dont need to carry much cash at all on me.
I live out in the sticks so I never really had a problem of someone just coming into my yard and messing with my stuff. I have a Boxer that a can hear a gnat fart from a mile away and he will alert me to ANYTHING that is going on outside and if that happens then out comes good 'ol Ruger with 2-15 round clips and one already in the chamber for the assist.
also if I had an iphone or something like it you can for be for sure to always find it on my person, I NEVER leave that stuff lying around where some punk can find it like in the center console, Thats the FIRST place they are going to look!
I mean nothing against you, you are already paying for your mistake, but maybe that is just the lesson that you needed to get vigilant when it comes to your valuables, I know it is a tough lesson to learn but to be blunt and honest with you I wouldn't chalk it up to "bad luck" because there are obvious variables there that WERE under your control, you chose to put those items in a not so secure location and they got stolen, don't blame it on bad luck.
You obviously are bummed out about it now and i will not harp on you anymore because I think you learn a tough lesson, but hey.....you might want to think about getting a dog/alarm/vid camera/etc... maybe even a gun!
Just keep your chin up and just chalk it up as "Lesson Learned"
Just my two cents

Wow, Sorry to hear about the multiple damages and break in. I know Iím paranoid where ever I park my car. Good luck with your repairs buddy! If anything, I always like to think that through someones misfortunes others can learn from it. So thanks for the post.


I never park anywhere near anyone else, not to be different or make my car stand out but because I don't wanna pay $250 for dent and paint repairs. (I saw a nice Z06 corvette the other day parked in between a minivan and a old pick-up... i couldnt help but think ). I hide my GPS and Radar always. I got my windows tinted as well. Just some ideas... anyone else feel free to add to the list of ways to protect your car???

Well said, I am so surprised during these economical tough times just what folk will steal. If it looks like they can make a quick buck off of it then they will take it.....period.
