Fortunately I don't keep anything valuable in it, all they got were jumper cables. But still, quite a way to make you feel less safe in your own house.

We got robbed the day we moved into our new house. Talk about not feeling safe in your own house. We weren't home, and a door was unlocked.

I remember that. Classic post.

No one likes a brag.

Someone broke into our house a couple of weeks ago. They stole a pair of my sunglasses, spare keys to the wifes car, and.... a pan of rice krispie treats. They even passed over various ipads/laptops.

What makes this relevant to the thread? The wifes car has been at the dealer now for 5 weeks because they cant figure out how to rekey and reprogram it. They even flew in a guy from corporate to try and help. Still no go. Unbelievable. I wonder if we are going to get a new car over this.

Someone broke into my car while I was at the beach and moved an slr camera and a bottle of tequila to steal an old pair of patched up jeans

Your reputation precedes you, obviously.

I'm actually a bit jealous. I hate locking doors and keeping track of (read: losing) keys. It's a largely pointless hassle, in my view. If someone really wants to get in, they're going to get in.

I'd rarely if ever lock my doors if it were just me. But my 14-year old daughter learned irrational hyper-vigilance and fear from her mom, and it freaks her out if the house isn't locked.

In my entire life the only people who have ever entered my home without my permission was the police. Shotguns at high port and flack vests will cure a hangover like right now

When we used to live in Korea, all the apartments had electronic lock devices so you never had to carry keys. You just had to punch in a simple passcode or insert a key fob if you so desired.

This was close to a decade ago. Now I have a keychain with all these stupid fucking keys.

America lags a lot in tech in some regards.

 “You’re talking about 140-mile-an-hour winds, seas upwards of 50 feet, basically zero visibility. Those are challenging conditions to survive in.”

 

Challenging? Try impossible. Shitty way to go.

My wife is crazy vigilant about this stuff, like "wake up in the middle of the night and want me to check on the locks" kind of paranoid. Her parents have the alarm system, guns in the nightstands, all that. Pretty obvious how she learned it.

That said, locks aren't going to stop a determined thief, but it will stop it from being a crime of opportunity. My car wasn't locked because I'm an idiot. Our other car was locked and they ignored it.

You can buy that stuff, just most people don't for whatever reason. You can even get some with webcams, some that unlock from your phone, all sorts of stuff.
