You would think that I'd have packed away my naivete' long ago.
You would think.
Sunday was supposed to be a good day. A day spent in Temple Texas installing two computers for a couple of kids that need them and then back to Austin where three more would have received the same treat. I packed the Rodeo last night so as not to wake the neighbors by doing it in the pre-dawn hours.
Was there a mention of naivete'?
Some scum decided that they needed the machines worse than the kids.
So, after the obligatory visit by the local gendearme (complete with sympathetic yet impotent response) and a call to our insurance agent, we got the icing on the cake.
"Well Mr. Starks, your coverage on the vehicle is liability only and since the car was parked on the street, I'm afraid your homeowners insurance won't cover it."
That sounds about par for the course.
Time to find another insurance agent.
And I'll see what this mayhem is going to cost us. Again, the computer parts are next to nothing...it's the hackjob they did on my back gate that's going to be breath-taking. This sort of thing just doesn't happen here. Folks, my street is Ozzie and Harriet Blvd, circa 1956. At least it was.
Now I think I will go clean this nasty mess up and try to figure out what we're gonna do. The damage to the vehicle far outweighs the cost of 5 rebuilt computers, three used flatpanels and a box of hard drives.
I'm open to suggestions...
