they just did.

my cars been broken into, they've f**ked both locks, the drivers door, had my headunit, all my CD's, broken part of the dash too.

Im so gutted, I didnt think my week off could get any worse and now its hit rock bottom. had it keyed, got the cops accumsing me f dangerous driving, had problems with a bird, all in 4 days.

had a really good days yesterday, went to STT's (simon) where we sorted the sump gasket, track rod ends, decided to put a manual steering rack in, rebuilt the rear hubs with new discs, pads, shoes bearing - the works. The car felt so much better after that.

Then tonight, I went ot AstraSteve23's, and left the car there and went to out new car - a £20 fiesta which we've bought and are using as a farm car for pssing around in. We've had problems with the tie bar so we went to fix that. we were gone half and hour and when we came back - it had been broken into. On a busy road in broad day light. Ive got feeleres out all over already, all my mates are looking out for the bits so you never know. Think its the gipos in rookesbridge so Steves just been down and got all the plates and had a look to see if he can see it anywhere. Also his neighbour has a security camera so that might turn up something.

Hopefully fixing it shouldnt be to hard but about 10 CD's have gone and the headunit was worth about £100. the doors a total loos, its messed up around the lock and also Ive kicked it in rage.

Im not sure where I satnd on audio insurnace, or if i will claim. But should I take some pictures? before its fixed (hopefully tomorrow if I can get hold of simon - hes got a right colour door at his place and a complete lock set)

gutted. one day I keep telling myself a spot of good luck will come my way, but its hard to keep smiling when i cant actually rember the last really good thing that happened to me. Maybe I'll get this new job on friday.

p.s. woe betide that copper when he comes to mine tomorrow what about the real f**king crimnals? chase me over some bulls**t claims by some busybosy when Ive had my car go from mint to what may as well be wrecked in under a week.....

Nightmare. Hopefully things work out. These things happen to us all at times but then things start to pick up again.
Ive found that every couple of months something really bad happens and then it gets better and gets good again and then something else happens and so on.

nah havent upset anyone, I dont make enemys and im not a particually offensive/in your face person, I get on with most people in the area.

TBH the car wasnt at home it was at a mates 7 miles away, I cant see how they would have know it was there, or why they wouldnt have done it when it was keyed.

who knows, maybe all this bad luck means a whole dollop of it will happen friday morning! goodbye carp wages/job here comes some real good money and a job I really want and will take me all over devon, cornwall and somerset:D:D:D:D:D

Hard luck. now how you feel mate.

Same happened to me last year exactly the same except I chased them down the road in my slippers and pants at 3am in the ****in rain!

The police won't do much because its not worth the police time.

If it is the gippo's - leave it! Not worth the agro mate. be careful tho. You've all seen Snatch - that **** really happens!!

Simps.

P.S. Comments about gypos, very true. If you do something, dont let them know its you, as they will find where u live and make ur life hell mate. So use a balaclava! ;)

That's f**king lame matey, hope you catch the scum responsible.

Don't let it get you down too much though, that's a nice GTE you've got there, and I'm sure the effort it may take to get it back to A1 nick is more than worth it in the long run. :beer:

Best of luck with the job btw :D
