Damn Good Technician

I'm a technician at a big ol' pharmaceutical company. A damn good technician, if I do say so myself.

Is it just me or is that trophy getting grainier with each week?   Next week there should be a summary of the overall leader board. With only one point keeping me from the top . . .Read More

Awesome Stuff
Sunday, August 22, 2010

Thanks, everybody, for the well-wishes. Happily we have insurance, so we'll be able to get replacement stuff. I'm upset about the pictures that were lost on the camera & computers that I can't replace, and my grandmother's jewelry that isn't worth a lot but means a lot to me. All together, they didn't ruin our home so we were pretty lucky.

The detectives were here yesterday and fingerprinted all over our house, finding pretty much nothing. They told us that there were four break-ins on Friday in our neighborhood around the same time, and two already on Saturday, so this isn't what you'd call an "isolated incident".

We asked about alarm systems, and their opinion was that it will take at least five to ten minutes between the time the alarm goes off, the alarm company tries to call you (to make sure it's not a false alarm), calls the police, and the police arrive. These guys were in and out in less than that time, and odds are good the same thing would happen even if we had an alarm system.

When we left the house to get some breakfast on Saturday, we noticed there were a mess of "Lost Cat" posters up all over the neighborhood. I'm guessing these are probably other people who were broken into, and their cats escaped out the open windows. I'm pretty surprised ours stayed in the house the whole time, and feel really bad for those folks. It's bad enough that your house was busted into, and your shit stolen, but then your pet runs away on top of it all? Suck, suck, sucky suck.

yeah.. that is sad. losing pets and stuff and memories.

I guess that is one of those things that pissed me off when stuff got stolen from me. It wasn't worth anything, as monetary value goes, bu it was MEMORIES for me. Especially the "jewlery" I inherited from my grand mothers and relatives, it's nice - I love it - but for someone to try and sell it today, they might get $50-100 in total which you know, I'd gladly give them for it back :(
