Attention Rich Idiots: You Are not Immune from Crime

According to the Star Tribune, “A motorist parks a vehicle in a parking lot and returns to find the window smashed and valuables missing. That’s the scenario that’s played out at least 10 times in the past two weeks in Wayzata.”

This is something I’m having a hard time feeling unsafe about, because these people were leaving purses and wallets in their cars in plain view. How much effort does it take to A) take your purse or wallet with you or B) tuck it under the seat? Seriously. Some people live in such isolation that it makes me *almost* glad this sort of thing happens. But not actually.

    So I’m supposed to stop coating my vehicle’s interior with cash money?

    It’s so soft . . .

    Reminds me of my parents (who don’t live in the area in case someone was looking for inspiration to rob them.) They feel that if they LOCK THEIR HOUSE it’s like saying something bad could happen in their little town, which they don’t believe.

    I dunno, what’s so hard about not breaking into people’s cars and stealing their stuff? Somehow, I manage to avoid doing that daily…
