I know some of you out there enjoy "exciting" library stories, and it's been fairly calm recently. No news is good news and all that. Well I now have 2 stories today for the price of 1.
I love my Honda Civic. It's reliable, it gets good gas mileage, and it's small. I love small cars. Anywho, a couple of weeks ago the boyfriend noticed I was H-less. Some punk-ass idiot stole the H symbol off my trunk! "That's how people know it's a Honda!"
(Bonus points to anyone who knows where that quote is from)
At least they didn't scratch up my paint job. But seriously - what kind of pathetic loser steals an H? It's not like I drive a Mercedes or BMW (with my salary I'd have to live in one of those cars as well). I told my father my tale of woe - and he told me that back in the 1970s when he worked for Volkswagen people were stealing the VW symbol. Go figure.
Then last night, someone set the alarm off at the library. Luckily when the cops showed up there was no damage - so I wasn't greeted with a busted in door or broken out window this morning.
What kind of pathetic loser tries to break into a library?
(Noticing the theme of today's blog yet?)
Let me give you budding criminals a lesson on choosing locations to burglarize. My library is a really bad choice. Our copy machine is older than I am, the computers are hopelessly outdated (I suspect some of them have been banging around the county since 1990), and we keep very little money here. Very little. Trust me, you could get more out of a convenience store cash register.
You'd have much better luck holding up the McDonald's down the street.
