Sure, we were just going to run into Lowes for just a minute. I had a bad feeling about leaving my brand new pretty white laptop (still in the box) computer in the back seat of the car. But it will be fine, he said. We'll not be long and we're right in front of the door, under the brightest lights. After all, this is a Lowe's parking lot. Should have listened to me, we both should have. So this is how my car looks on Friday the 13th. Evidently we were followed from Best Buy to Lowes. The surveillance tape shows someone pulling up right next to us as we walked into the store. The license plate was covered and they knew exactly what they wanted and how to get it quickly. As the police officers wrote the report, they got another call from Cracker Barrel. Another lady had been to Best Buy, bought a computer, left it in her trunk and went to Cracker Barrel. Friday the 13th for her too.
Looking on the bright side. 1) There was no data on the computer. 2) They could have followed us all the way home 3)This laptop is still working even if it is temperamental and slow 4)They didn't take the new printer 5)We have insurance.
I guess some people are using the downturn in the economy as an excuse to stimulate corrupt behavior. Too bad they had to pick my pretty little white laptop and my pretty white car to victimize. Happy Friday the 13th:(
