I was at work one day and came home at about 4pm.
When I rolled up my driveway I saw that the front door of my house was open., which was rather odd.
I knew it was bad even before I got out the car :-)
So I walked up the path and looked inside ,,and EVERYTHING was gone. !
Yup ,in the middle of the day while I was at work I had moved out , but I didnt know about it.
Theives took everything , inlcuding clocks off thew wall , my shoes and even my electric razor.
The only thing left was an old sofa , one bed and my kitchen table and my dirty dishes from the morning.
But I thought , ?well ,ime glad that I locked my garrage.?
(after ending my race car prep business i kept most of my real expensive tools and gear in there)
So I wander out the back and lift up the rolling door , and , EMPTY..
At this point I just started to laugh ,,, and the best part was yet to come.
The insurance company wouldnt pay up because there was no sign of forced entry., so it was all a loss.
All of what we own is just temporary anyway , its all just stuff.
Stuff can be replaced ,,its not worth getting too hung up over these things.
Its a shame the cops and ins. company wouldn't do there job's.
Speaking as a American citizen the country is going in the crapper. We have lost our back bone and seem to put up with anything concerning law enforcement and big business.
Something was lost when we stopped hanging horse thief's. Fact is in my county you will get in more trouble for stealing a horse than you will a car. Well that is if the worthless cops get out and do there job. And the lawyer type judge does theres.
And then there are the Insurance Company's. The only thing more corrupt is a Indian Casino. I went straight to the top when I purchased my Honda's. Allstate was doubling my premiums. After being with them 15 years and thinking there going to **** slap me. I got the Ins. Commissioner involved. Drug my agent thru the muck myer. And basically discredited the industry as a hole. ( hole = not a typo ) The more I dug the more I found out why people in my family that had been in the insurance business quit it. They are a flat out calculated den of thieves.
Sorry for the rant.

roughly $300 in towing storage and camden city police fees for me to pick the car up, or i can sell the 'car' and give them $35 for processing fees. thats not counting the towing fees i would need, should i want to keep my car. they also said that if i were to sign over the deed to my car for $35 i could only take out personal posessions. THE CAR IS MY PERSONAL POSESSION! PRICKS! AND SO IS EVERY SINGLE PART!
Jared: I'm really sorry to hear you got ripped off, coming and going. It doubly stink's when the city police double team with the towing company to stick it to you, when they can. I don't blame you for being really pissed off.
I had an 89 Toyota Pick Up sitting in front of the house, with the registration paid, but the tag's not "current". They appropriated my truck and charged me $350 just to get rid of it, between the city and the tow company. They didn't give me a notice or anything, they just pulled it, because the "registration was more than six months expired", bull****!!!
Anyway, it's gone and hopefully they can't stiff me for anything more, on it.
Is your thinking on Honda, that the only reason it had any value was because it had some value as part's? In any case, it does give you considerable cause to be frustrated and angry, which is unfortunate.
I'd like to say that their is some fairness and that it will catch up to the thieves and the system, but I don't know if that's true. I know I am very bitter towards the various police organizations I have had to deal with, in my life, they have all been willing and happy to stick it to you, irrespecitive of any real reasonable cause. It can make you pretty bitter. However, the downside is that the more bitter you become, the more it takes away from the quality of your own life, so try not to let it get to you to much.
