Last year at Walzwerk‘s anniversary party, my car was totaled by a hit-and-run. Last night was their 8th anniversary party.

I was against driving to the evening. Superstitious, I guess. I even fought about it with C. As he pointed out, we’ve driven to the restaurant many times since then. But I finally decided to drive, as we picked up a friend. We didn’t park on the same street, and, this time, we were in the middle of a block.

This year, the rear passenger-side winder was smashed. What makes it more ironic, is that where we parked, C said, “It might get broken into here,” but we still left it there. Once in the restaurant, the owner Christiane asked if we rode our bikes. C told her we drove because lightening doesn’t strike the same place twice.

It did.

Only thing stolen: a bag of blue plastic New York Times newspaper bags, aka poopy bags for Janie Sparkles. I only wish they were full of poo.

    Huh? Break into a car to steal poopie bags??? I don’t get it. I am so sorry you have to go through replacing your window again. Why can’t people just learn to get their own poopie bags? I’m sure people would give it to them for free…

    One of the reasons I favor my little bike. I wonder why they took the poop bags?

    Nooooo! Oh man, it makes me so angry when stupid stuff like this happens. My very first car, a 1979 VW Rabbit, was broken into. Thanks to a design flaw, the thief was able to easily open the hatchback (because the trunk lock probably stopped locking in 1980, and no key was necessary to get in), crawl into my car over a garment bag, 2 rolls of quarters, a $200 dress, and steal a plastic bag full of 8-tracks (I’d found an under-dash 8-track player at the thrift store for $1.50). All the stuff was left behind. They JUST TOOK THE 8-TRACKS. They even left the player and the speakers. I never did find another 8-track copy of the broadway version of Jesus Christ Superstar.

    I’ve had 3 OTHER cars broken into, as well. That one is just my favorite because I didn’t have to replace any glass.

    I sure they must have had a desperate need to clean up after their dog. Or, you know, they were delivering the NYT in the neighborhood and ran out of bags.

    When I lived in NC, I once had my car broken into in broad daylight, when it was parked at work and readily in view. My apartment was also broken into in the middle of the afternoon once, and my ex had his car window smashed and glucometer stolen while we were at a dance. Which is why I love living somewhere I can leave everything unlocked.

    I’m sorry, son. What luck ??? I remember years ago one winter there was a garbage strike in NYC, so people wrapped their trash in Xmas paper and left their cars unlocked. Yup, stole the trash !!!!!

    Finally mastered the channel cable cast on !!!

    Oh, that’s lame! I feel your pain as two windows have been randomly smashed on my car recently. Nothing was stolen, which kind of pissed me off even more (in a why, oh why kind of way). It was only about 160$ to get the roll up door window replaced, if that makes you feel any better.

    That sucks….but let’s look at it this way:

    Take your car there again for next year’s anniversary celebration….you know what they say: “Third time’s a charm’.

    I would send you a bag of my and Wiggley’s poop for that inconsiderate, mean, evil, amoeba type thing that did that to your car!

    How dare they!

    If it makes you feel better, am sure the guinea pigs on this planet who read this, will want to scout that irresponsible one-cell thing who did this.

    Sorry 🙁
