Visited my parents last night and gathered some stuff to take up to my apartment. Started loading up my car in the driveway early this morning, taking a few trips from the house out through the garage to my car in the driveway.
Went in for one more bag and as I came out of the house into the garage a few minutes later, I was startled to see a guy standing a few feet away closing the door of my mother's car. I screamed bloody murder, dropped what I had in my hands and yelled get out of here at the top of my lungs while I chased him out of the garage. I screamed drop everything, and he actually dropped my mom's wallet on the way down the block.
Called the police immediately (figured it made more sense to get them on the way instead of continuing to give chase) and was transferred 3 times (had to describe the event 3 times as well) before actually getting the right police department. Finally arrived about 10 minutes later.
As far as we can tell, he got away with very little, ignored all the tools and other items in the garage, ignored the stuff in my car (the back was opened and full of stuff). Just wanted cash.
Needless to say, it will be a while before I sleep again. A Liam Neeson movie night followed by some random fist fights might help quell this rage.

Check one off the list! Too bad it isn't smaller... I'm sure someone small would have dug this. Now I may have to keep it. Though as Macklemore said, smells like R. Kelly's sheets.
OMG! Where in So Cal do you live? It goes to show you, opportunists are everywhere! You doing ok after the random fist fights with strangers?

LOL, what size are you? Maybe we can do a trade. Those pants are wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too flashy for me. Don't worry, I've only wore those pants for 2 hours when I went to class dressed like that. No one said anything but I could just tell they were like WTF?!

Thrifters can be good/fair dinkum too - yesterday I went into a Smith Family store and found an orphan 3 button Ralph Lauren Made in Italy suit jacket that was a couple of sizes too big for me. Went into the pants section, found the matching trouser and gave them to the storelady to pair up and reprice.
OMG, you are way of a nicer guy than I am. I would of totally koped those and offer a trade on here.
