Today some idiot broke into Amy’s car while she was at work. He took her purse, which had her wallet in it. Luckily, the genius left the iPod that was sitting right next to it.
Amy spent most of her day canceling credit cards and getting her window replaced while I got to spend an hour at the bank closing our accounts and reopening new ones. Amy still needs to get a new driver’s license, but she can’t do that until she has cash, and she can’t get cash until the new accounts process through the bank’s system (my debit card has been transferred to the new account, but it won’t take effect for 24 hours).
It’s amazing all the little things that you carry around all the time that have to be replaced. Luckily there was nothing irreplaceable in there; it was mostly paperwork. It just takes a lot of time and effort (and a little bit of money) to get everything back in order. I’m sure we’ll still be thinking of things that were in there weeks from now.
Hopefully the police will be able to find the creep and bring him to justice. He came into Amy’s work and asked for an application just before he decided to check the cars for valuables, so they have his picture on the security cameras. He also threw Amy’s Sam’s Club and Costco membership cards out the window as he was pulling away, so they’ve pulled some fingerprints from those.
