I got robbed on Christmas eve

I saw them running away with most of our Christmas presents. Police were unable to do any thing since I was unable to get to a lic plate #. They came in quiet and left loud as I chased them to there car. I'm in a real bad mood even though I should be happy. no on got hurt. . Hope everyone else is having a happy Christmas. My son looks so sad because im in a bad mood and he has little presents. 2007 has really sucked and was just finished off with a BANG.....

Thanks all , My son got alot in his stocking and presents from family the day before. He is 11 and just has a funny look on his face today. We don't need anything, family had already helped. Thanks for the offers. No one was hurt. it was like a reverse Santa. No they did not get all the presents, I heard them and they ran as soon as they saw me. It just does not feel like a normal christmas today. I just wanted to share with my RC friends because you guys are my online buddys.

Wow, I wonder what horrible fate they will meet from that bad karma...I'd love to see the look on their face when the universe dishes that out!

Thank goodness that everyone is healthy & safe; sounds like an opportunity to talk to your family about what is really important today.

I am sorry to hear that. For the life of me I just can't imagine HOW could anyone steal Christmas presents(????) That is just ruthless and cold. Same thing with people destroying other people's Christmas ornaments outside their house. I just don't get it.

2007 is a bad year for me as well. Just got back from Vegas last night and on our way back, we got rear-ended on Flamingo road. That was my FOURTH accident this year.

sorry to hear about yours. It's a crazy world we live in.

I feel ya buddy, my GF at the time got her car stolen on X-mas Eve last year. I got my car stolen on X-mas day (my keys were in her car so they came back). Even though she got her car back and the insurance paid me for mine we were still out over $1000.

it was probably some stupid kid to go for the presents.

i just went to see alien vs. predator and some wise guys (2 of them) used laser pointers to play with the screen throughout the entire movie. just goes to show the lack of respect certain people have.

Yes I did , and my neighbor was not ready with the shot gun.

Thank you to all. I have to car shop today. My Dad who gave me a car months ago had to take it back because my brother is worse off than me he says. Now I have to use whats left of my savings to buy a new car today. I'm thinking Mustang GT or Mini Cooper. See 2007 still sucking. I also had 3 car accidents this year to. 1 was my fault. This is the car I had to sell that was recked months ago.


Life has been sucking . hope 2008 will be better

UGH! You wrecked THAT car?

Maybe go a little more under the radar this time. Sounds like you are becoming a target in your neighborhood.

I am happy to hear nobody got hurt physically.
