    This morning as I'm making my coffee, I look out the window and notice that my car is gone.
    Some bastard stole my car last night. Fuckers.
    What a damn hassle, called the police, called the insurance company.

    So, I go outside to see if my truck will start (I haven't driven it for a couple months). Dead battery. I've got jumper cables behind the seat, so I'll get one of my neighbors to give a jump start. I grab the cables,

    HOLY SHIT! THAT HURT.

    Wasps, everywhere. Seems the wasps made a home in my truck, and they weren't to happy about me disturbing them. I got stung 3 times in the hand before I escaped into the safety of the house.

    What a crappy way to start the day.

    ...that will give away my only shirt to someone in need of it...but if you steal as much as a penny from me, I will haunt you forever.

    Sorry about your loss of a car. Was it a clunker or a keeper? Did it have any sentimental value? Was there anything embarrassing hidden in it? Did you have adequate coverage? Could your friends have hidden it as a joke?

    they will probably find it up on blocks somewhere with nothing in it.
    That really sucks for you, sounds like Karma owes you one and I hope they catch the guys who did it.

    It's 10 years old, but in pretty good shape. I don't get sentimental about my cars. I do have adequate coverage. Nothing embarrassing in it, but I did have all my camping gear in it. I don't have friends that would play a joke like that.

    Oh, what a terrible feeling.

    I live in the Peoples' Republic, where the urban equivalent of crickets, i.e. auto alarms is oft heard.

    I've had the experience twice.

    One was a car whose value depended on the amount of gas I had in it, and the other was a beautiful new VW.

    Guess which one the police got back.

    you didn't forget it somewhere? I had someone drive me home the other night because I was too drunk to drive and I forgot about this in the morning when my car wasn't there.
