Desperate times desperate measures
desperate people in my drive way stealing things ! I don't usually write to much on here about our troubles because I like to write about my inspired moments but I cant get this off my mind and I think it is stifling my pocket making this morning.
Yesterday around 2:00 (past nap time) Burger and I were trying to wind down for a nap in front of Donald duck You tube. Big dog was barking(from the bedroom this dog knows ) and through my Disney haze I wondered is Dada home already? I looked through the shade to see a silver sedan parked in the drive "who is here?" I wondered annoyed as I stepped out the front door( with burger on my hip) to see a 200lb 40 year old man with his arms full of valuables (Dada's work stuff) jumping into the back of this car. I WAS NOT THINKING STRAIGHT.....
I grabbed the other side back door and proceeded to try and stop them. pulling out some of the goods and bruising my leg. (I KNOW THIS WAS STUPID)
Luckily the driver was a women also about 40 that was very concerned that I was holding a baby...she did not run us over
Anyway I have to assume they were desperate ...I am not excusing them I feel completely violated
The Daddy's girl from the Georgia woods said"oh HELL no you ain't taking my sh*t "
You see we feel pretty desperate right now too "Do we buy groceries this week or pay the utility bill that just sent notice" so I can empathize
I have nothing remarkable to say or insightful or an idea of how to make it better... I just see the storms coming the cost of living is increased so much in the last 6 months we can't keep up!
The cops came I got the plate # ... But even if they stop them what about the rest of us .
