tales from the ghetto, part two



last night i went to work for a few hours, grossing forty five dollars. fabulous, right? no, but i do it mostly for the sanity. for an excuse to get out of the house, away from the kids, and still feel like i'm contributing. well, last night's "going to work" excuse failed me. because when i came out to my car this is what i found. my forty-five bones is not going to cover this and my sanity is slowly slipping away. some passerby just threw his elbow into the window on the off-chance there was something good to steal. which there wasn't-he got away with a super old 15 GB Ipod that, although has a stellar collection of music, doesn't work unless it's plugged in. he's going to be sorely disappointed. he would have been better off stealing stevie's U parking permit.

i'm not trying scare off all you guys who dream of living in salt lake city, but i'm pretty sure that "this is [not] the place." not anymore.

That stinks...I am so sorry! Do you want to put a vinyl comment on it til you get it fixed?!...on the house of course!

happy jo-
yes, that would be great. i'm only kidding, but it actually would be really funny. i'm thinking:

"save yourself the time, the good stuff's already taken."

or

"no ipod in here (anymore)."

or

"to thief: i hope this hurt."

Lets start a design company with those signs. Maybe it would have deterred my stupid man stealing suitcases out of my car. Are you kidding me? Why didn't you take the stereo? Stupid.

Yikes! That totally sucks big time! Maybe the vinyl lettering thing will take off though!

Oh, Liz. Are you serious? I'm sorry. After all of this drama you've had the pleasure experiencing recently, something really, really good is bound to happen.
