    About a month ago my wife leaves her car unlocked. The next day the car looks like someone has sorted through it all, and her camera is missing from the glove box.

    Just now she discovers the camera is back in the glove box.


    ???

    My guess - criminal was a kid, his mommie found the camera, and told him he'd better bring it back before she whopped his ass.


    And on another note I need to do something about my wife leaving her car unlocked.

    What if the camera was in the glove box all along, only went out of scope, temporarily. Lots of things disappear and we think we lost them, only to find them again at a random moment in the future.

    Interesting question: if the only reason you got the camera out is the parent opened up a can of whoop-ass on the kid to get em to tell them where they got the camera from, do you still want it back?

    Reminds me of that guy Steven Wright:

    "I came home from work one day to find that everything in my house was stolen... and replaced with exact duplicates!"

    Maybe they felt bad.

    I stole underwear in junior high, and I never wore it because I always felt guilty about it.

    So what did you do with it? Did you put it on ebay?

    When I was in junior high I don't think they had eBay yet. For one, my parents didn't get the Internet until I was 16.
