rant

Last night some little sh!t broke the rear window of the bronc and stole my camera and a 1/2 craftsman ratchet and socket set. The thing that makes me crazy is that I just finished the tailgate a month or so ago. New shell, new window, new guts, and I sprayed a pretty smooth paint job with the help of one of my friends who owns a body shop. They did have to put a dent in the tailgate and not just take out the window. ! [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] I feel better now.

Re: rant

I'm sorry to hear that. That type of crap makes me so pissed. Just seems people just can't leave other people's stuff alone.

that's what sucks about the soft top, can't really take the truck and leave it anywhere for fear of everything being stolen out of it. Was the camera in plain sight? That is usually the problem. If people don't know if there is anything good to steal in a vehicle, especially one locked and shut, they usually won't bother, unless they are really only looking to vandalize anyway.

Re: rant

That's discouraging !

Someone needs to make us an upholstered parcel tray that hangs, snaps in or rolls out, like modern SUVs and hatchbacks and wagons have.

Out of sight, out of mind. Maybe Excursions or Expeditions have one we could cut down to fit ?

Re: rant

That's the kind of stuff that makes me wish we could install 100,000 Volt Car protection systems. Do the lil Fu [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] a favor and get it over now since he is obviously prison bound. Hopefully he is a small drug dependent punk with no gang ties. If he is then He'll have a new name once incarcerated: SALLY! [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: rant

The camera was in a rubbermaid tub in back, I was planning to take a little day trip today so I had packed it in the night before. Dumb mistake. One good thing is that I used to be a jailer and am very good friends with both the sheriffs office and the police dept. They are short handed right now and asked if I would come back part time. So If they do catch the little sh!t I'll be there to book him in and make sure his stay is oh so pleasant. (He says in his best Dr. Evil voice)

Now Moby, we both know that you will do nothing less than use the lease amount of force necessary to gain compliance. lol [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
