It seemed pretty obvious to me but that did not stop my husband from asking a few ridiculous questions.
You see my car had been relegated to the driveway overnight. I was still leisurely enjoying my morning coffee when my husband decided to to run an errand using my car.
Within minutes he was back in the house and without pausing sternly asked:
“Why did you leave your car unlocked? Why did you empty everything out of the glove compartment onto the car seat? Why isn’t the garage door opener remote or the car registrations in your car anymore?”
(that was so unlike him. Maybe he was ‘hangry’ and needed a Snickers bar)
I know that my car is never as pristine as his but I’m never that messy. Doesn’t it seem a little suspicious?
To me it was an open and shut case.
And I think within seconds of his questions he realized the same thing.
Someone had broken into my car and now had possible access into our home!
On a side note, the thief could not have broken into the the garage/house as we always turn the power off to the door when we leave a car on the driveway. But if this had been in a store parking lot, we might not have been so lucky. And thank goodness it was a messy thief or we might not have noticed immediately and promptly changed the security codes.
But I made it easy for would be thieves.
I hid the remote in plain sight and our registration information was in a typical spot.
I should have know better. I’m usually pretty good at hiding things.
Take my ironing board for example. It is well hidden.
And it too could be considered an open and shut case.
If you don’t want people to find things easily, hide them somewhere unexpected.
