Ripped Off

Someone stole my license plate right of of my car last night or the night before. I discovered this nuisance last night as I approached my car in my workplace parking lot. It either happened while I was at work or the night before at my apartment complex. I filed the police report over the phone and the nice lady told me that she didn't think I'd have to pay for a new plate but she wasn't sure. I just purchased the new sticker this month so if I have to pay a pro-rated amount, it's unlikely that it'll be more than a few dollars.

I can't get to the renewal place until later this afternoon, but I'm already the proud owner of one of those unsightly stickers that the apartment management places on cars without proper tags. I'm both victim and offender at the same time. Ugh.

Ain't life nice? ;)

What a pain!

This happened to us last May--the day after we got a new tag sticker. I think it's a trend out in Hermitage.

It cost us $11 to replace the tag. The bummer is you get a whole new tag # to memorise.

Well, that and the fact that we were out $11.

Ugh. Well, I'm off to pay $11 then. ;)

That stinks!
You could get creative with it though and imagine that the person that stole your plate needed it to swap out plates on a stolen car that they were using as the getaway car in a high stakes bank heist.... or maybe they have a body in the trunk and they are setting you up and... I could go on and on...

Middle Child: I already thought of those way wild scenarios. I could use a bit of excitement in my life anyway.

But since I filed the police report and paid the $11 for a new tag, I guess I'm safely boring again. ;)

Damn them! Are you paranoid every time you see a police car behind you?

One more theft that falls not under "people who steal stuff they need" but "people who steal stuff just to be assholes."
