My car has been "broken into" 5 times in the last 2 months. i have "broken" in quotes because my door lock is broken and i can't afford to get it fixed. Technically all they gotta do is open the door. -And before some other jackass chimes in (because they always do) MY CAR ONLY HAS ONE LOCK! i have virtually no income, i'm disabled and i wouldn't know the first step to repairing the lock mechanism myself anyway. Every other week i've gone out to find my car in shambles. Glove box and center console open, back seats torn through, papers everywhere, backpack dug through... Don't worry though, they haven't taken anything of actual value; just random shit with value only to me. My work uniform, my badge, my "employee of the month" pins, my work shoes and my cane. Yeah, my cane. That real important thing i need to get around; they took that! i've got literally $10 worth of quarters in the damn cup holder! Take that! Take my stereo, my jumper battery, my phone adapter, my DS, my MP3 player, my bugout bag, my work walkie, adapters, chargers, etc. Just leave the shit i need for my employment and livelihood! Some of my items were found by my roomie strewn down the sidewalk adjacent to our building so some items were recovered but i'm finally ready to return to work (or try) next week but now i need to go buy a whole new uniform. The jerks at my apartment complex basically told me i deserved to have my things stolen because i don't lock my car. Rather than just taking my statement or show much empathy, they just told me, "Don't be an idiot and lock your car! Hurr durr durr!". We're supposed to have security patrols around nightly but i haven't seen them in the last few months. Even as a night owl who takes regular late night/early morning walks, i haven't seen a single security guard in quite some time. As if they could do anything about it, after all, i park directly in front my apartment windows, i'm awake and active most nights and i'm still getting broken into. While i know i haven't lost anything worth crying over, it's still fucking with my head. Even if nothing was stolen, just knowing that somebody out there is tearing through my shit just makes me feel...gross. Worse yet, there's nothing i can do about it and they probably know that. Has your car ever been broken into? Do you have any advice on how to boobie-trap my car on the cheap? As much as i'd love to leave a surprise for the prowler like a bait wallet rigged with razor blades, i really don't want to piss anybody off. if the thief is having fun just making a mess and leaving, i'd rather not give them a reason to vandalize my car any further.
