Though the weather was nice, Thursday turned out to be a not so great day. First thing in the morning, I got a call from Corey who had found out from a neighbor that overnight our car had been broken into. Thank God for the neighbor because neither of us pass by the car on our way to the EL to take to work. The car would've sat there all day with its bashed in window and busted dash completely exposed for more vandalism or the weather which eventually turned cold and rainy.
Anyways, turns out some jerkpod, jagoff, dick tug decided to smash in the passenger window and rip out our stereo, completely effing up the dash. They didn't take any of our CD cases or what looked like a Visa card, complete with Corey's signature, which was really a gift card with less than $4 on it. These A-holes just wanted that stereo. As furious as we were, we had to stop and think... we've lived in Chicago for 2 years (2 years to the day... happy anniversary Corey) and we just now had our first break in. Not bad when you really think about it.
Of course we have insurance, though the deductible is $500, so that sucks. Turns out the damage is estimated at way over $500, so at least that parts worth it. Now we just have to live without a car for a few days. Not that it's impossible to do. A lot of people in Chicago don't have cars (the beauty of public transportation). It just makes doing some things, like grocery shopping a huge hassle. Thanks Jerkpod!
