So I'm recuperating at home from nose surgery. Taking it easy, surfing DC and trying not to go bored out of my mind. I decided it was way too hot for jeans since its about 70 degrees and sunny here today. So I go upstairs to change into some shorts. I am in my closet wearing briefs and my 5.11 holster shirt when I hear my wife yelling about someone breaking into my suburban. Instinct (of course not fashion sense) takes over and I'm down the stairs to make sure my wife is alright. Sure enough there is some kid leaving our driveway and strolling up to our next door neighbor's car. I watch him as he pulls on all the doors. My wife was already on with 911 telling them about the situation. I open the door and yell at the kid (i know, i know - stupid stupid stupid-especially in my briefs). He sees me and bolts down the street toward an awaiting get-away vehicle.
Okay with all that said -- I'm just pissed. The audacity of people in this day and age. Not just that this kid would walk up and down the street looking for a score (in broad daylight) but that there is more than enough empirical evidence that no one would do anything. He probably felt safe walking up and down the street pulling on people's door handles. For what? Loose change, sunglasses and CD's?
And on top of that my freaking nose started bleeding again
