Leaving your car unlocked

Some people are so bloody lucky. I’m a little remiss sometimes with locking my car on an evening. I’ve done it no end of times – I go to unlock it to drive somewhere and it’s already unlocked. I did this again recently but discovered that some thieving bastard had been through my glovebox etc and stolen my chequebook (I know, it shouldn’t have been in there but I’d used it for the first time in ages a few days before and forgotten about it) and a set of keys for a building elsewhere in the city. There wasn’t really anything else worth stealing to be honest – the radio is built into the dash (Fiat Bravo) and I tend not to keep much of any worth in there anyway. I suppose I should be thankful that they didn’t steal my alloys, old as they are.

Some people, though, do the same as me and get left $15,000 gifts!

The three diamond white gold ring enclosed in a box with a white bow was placed in the car which was parked at the train station in Westborough, Massachusetts.

The anonymous message read: “Merry Christmas. Thank you for leaving your car door unlocked. Instead of stealing your car I gave you a present.

“Hopefully this will land in the hands of someone you love, for my love is gone now. Merry Christmas to you.”

I’m so moving to Masschusetts – you obviously get a better class of pikies over there.
