Some Asshole Stole My Bike

Susie got up this morning to find out that we’d made an involuntary Boxing Day gift to some idiot loser.

The garage door was open, so she went out and looked. Sure enough, my bike was stolen.

My Garage

Then Susie went into the living room and discovered that the roof was leaking. That’s not acceptable. That’s downright unacceptable. We called our landlord and reported the roof, but not the garage break-in yet.

Not tht I’ve been doing a lot of bike riding, but it was a wonderful mountain bike, and I really did enjoy it from time to time. The really crappy thing is, Susie’s bike is still there, and you just know the asshole is going to come back and try to grab it, too. So we’ve moved it into our dining room until we can get a better lock for the door.

The only plus side: this would have been a lot harder to take on Christmas Day.

I tried to report this to the Vancouver PD online, only to discover that they require you to use WIndows IE to file a report online. THERE’S your crime right there, officer.

So now I’m on hold with the Police Department. It’s been about ten minutes. I know this isn’t the 9-1-1 line, but still, hello, police, where are you? Probably out setting up a dragnet to catch my bike thief — oh, wait, they don’t know about it yet. Well, maybe they’ve got other crimes to deal with.

    Exactly what is it about the VPD site needing IE 6 or higher?

    I found this out myself when I was trying to report a break in at our office the first week we moved in, sure I was on a windows box and I had IE available, but I was trying to do it in Firefox instead. Man that pissed me off.

    Anyway, I feel for ya having lost a bike myself to opportunistic bastards who can’t work for a living and buy their own.

    You can hope for Karma to get the guy/gal in the end, but until that happens, get a better lock :(

    Have a great newyear.

    thus, stolen bikes make good for nothing when boxing day arrives
