Around noon yesterday, someone kicked the door in to the neighbour’s house across the street from where we live. Then they ransacked the place. Upstairs, the newly-wed couple lost all their new stuff – loot from their wedding day. A DVD player, waffle iron, stereo. But they left the jewelry that was sitting on a table in their living room.
The student in the basement got her apartment trashed. But she was philosophical about it, “Better me with nothing then someone with kids.”
What a great attitude.
But now we’re replacing the lock to our garage and my wife is musing about installing a security system. I’d rather get a dog. A big, mean looking beast that drools on my kids, but makes everyone else fill their pants.
Maybe one of these guys. What do you think?
