i was falling asleep in my bed last thursday, early, maybe 11ish. I heard a car horn that sounded uncannily similar to my own. After turning over and trying to fall back asleep i sat bolt upright and decided that it WAS my horn. Half in dream and half in reality i stumbled outside. Not seeing anything, I went back to bed, not thinking anything of it until the next day when my roomy went to grab his skateboard and said 'bro, where are our boards'
i was like
dude, ****in a'
he was like 'bro, did someone steal them' i was like 'dude i think so' he was like 'dude.' and i was like 'bro, i know. damn it, bro. damn bro. DAMN. bro, if i wouldn't have had half a chub waking out of my dream i woulda ran outside faster' he was like 'wtf dude' i was like 'that was totes my horn bro'
all in all i'm missing 2 sector 9's (his, mine), both on the shorter end, one with all sorts of stickers on the bottom including a *gasp* obama sticker (stupid liberal skateboard, i've been trying to talk sense into him), the other, well, the other just a maybe 36" deck. Also missing: 1x beach patrol beanie, 2 pairs of polarized shades (1 pair of smiths with blue temples and black frames, the other von zipper's in tortoise kickstand), and to top it off they took my wide receiver gloves for football >.< . The lil punks prolly scattered when they were reaching across the dash to dig in the glove compartment and knocked the horn by accident. If only i had been awake they'd be getting chased after with my rifle...
There goes the neighborhood!
So if anyone has any knowledge of the whereabouts of said items, or see them for sale, or have buddies who think it was really sweet to steal stuff from some grown ass men, lemme know. We might reimburse you for a good lead, if it leads somewhere. And, well, if you are the one who stole our stuff, no worries. We aren't mad at you for doing it, just pissed that it happened. No one enjoys having their **** stolen, but we aren't gonna harbor ill will and resentment/stress out over it anymore. We'd prolly be down with forgiving you to your face if you end up returning it, because really, we aren't ****s, and we don't much care about being ****s. so, ya.
1. That sucks. I had the same happen to me when I was living out in CA. Believe me, insurance will find a way to value your boards at about 50 bucks each, and that's BEFORE they slap the deductible off the top. So, filing a claim ain't getting ya too far. However, I can speak from my own experience when I say it's one mistake you probably won't make again...leaving so much stuff in the vehicle, I mean.
2. I'm a pacifist like you wouldn't believe, and even I would say BEAT THE LIVING F@#% out of those chumps if you see them. Giving the stink-eye or even talking trash is one thing, but stealing your stuff??? Whoever did it, in my opinion, forfeited their own right to personal safety and deserves a serious beat-down.
