    I miss Chicago

    So I was in Ft. Meyers, Florida the other day and saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read:

    "I Miss Chicago"

    So, I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires and left a note that read, "I hope this helps!"

    No dead body in the trunk? That would have giving it a homey feel.

    Ah, the detritus of home....

    Love it.

    It ads a certain ambiance, a je ne sai quoi...

    Used to have to travel to Chicago once a month on business. Hated that trip, lol. Couldn't wait to get back to the Free Republic of Texas! Felt the same way about my monthly trips to LA and SF!

    Not bad, but on Lower Wacker Drive bums would break into cars and use it as a toilet. talk about time for a trade in.

    Maybe they meant they missed "Chicago" the Broadway play? Either way, your actions were appropriate.
