The Thief

I knew something was wrong as soon as I opened my door and the hint of stale smoke invaded my nostrils. Next was the open glove box and scattered CD covers.

Someone had broken into my car.

Toy planes, bouncy balls and a pair of novelty heart-shaped sunnies were strewn across the front passenger seat. The CDs were still in their covers. Clearly they weren’t impressed with my musical taste….their loss.

I don’t keep money or any other valuables in my car. I’m sure the thief was terribly disappointed. After all, they only walked away with an old pair of beaten up Oakleys (my back up pair of sunnies).

I’m actually more annoyed by the fact that I have to replace said back up pair then the fact that my car was violated.

Next time I’ll remember to lock my doors.

The Testing Of Fate

The street was packed and I was running late.

So I decided to test Fate.

I must admit, I’d done it twice before and was yet to suffer the consequences.

I knew it was a risk but as I said, I was running late.

Just 3 hours. 3 hours and I could move to safer surroundings.

3 hours till I would discover how Fate felt about my law breaking.

3 hours pass.

I walk to my car. I look at the windscreen. I see the slip of white paper.

Fate clearly felt that I needed to pay the price for testing her. Fair call.

Damn parking fine.
