When I was a kid I had a bicycle stolen (which I actually found later on).
In recent years I've had a pair of headphones stolen from work of all places. I've also had a few miscellaneous packages stolen from my front
doorstep which of course bothered me but NOTHING like how pissed off I am right now.
This Sunday is Easter and although it is primarily a time to reflect on the resurrection and celebrate life (we're Catholics) we also enjoy the more
secular parts of the holiday. You know, the baskets, egg hunting and I also use it as a time to give our son a present. Something that he has wanted
for a while that is just a little bit pricier than a typical every-day toy.
There is a certain children's educational show that he is very much into for almost a year now. Every now and then we have purchased some items from
this show's toy line. Since Easter is coming up I was looking to surprise him with this one particular toy he has been asking for, for FOREVER.
It's not exactly the most popular toy in the world so none of the local stores have it in stock so I went to Amazon and paid for the two day shipping
I'll cut to the chase.... tracked the package all the way home and got that little bit of joy we all get when we see the "delivered" status. It
always gets delivered to steps on the side of the house (that is still visible from the street). Guess what? SOME P.O.S. CAME BY AND STOLE IT!!!
At first I was in disbelief so I checked with the elderly couple downstairs (that often will take in a package for me because they are ALWAYS home).
Nope. Not with them. I kept telling myself it was there somewhere (other side of the house or in the back yard somehow). When it was nowhere to be
found and I spoke with Amazon and delivery was confirmed, at first I was a bit in shock.... then.... the RAGE
Tomorrow is Black Friday. Tomorrow is that day that, while being nailed to a friggen cross Jesus said, "Forgive them father, they know not what they
do." So yes, I understand that in some light I'm making a mountain out of a mole-hill. Still, I'm only human and right now I... AM... PISSED...
It's not the money. It's the fact that some creep, some filthy f-----g creature was walking by and decided he was going to just go and help himself
to something. Nobody would know whats in the damned box! SO THEY JUST DECIDED THEY WANTED SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE ELSE PAID FOR SO THEY TOOK
It's not the money that they robbed. They robbed my FOUR YEAR OLD kid from the excitement of unwrapping a package and being shockingly surprised to
see the one thing he has been asking for for months! And they robbed my wife and I from enjoying watching him be surprised.
All because some random p.o.s. dirtbag piece of filth that is lower than the dog crap I wipe off my shoe decided that his pathetic life is more
important than everyone elses and he was just going to help himself to a surprise Amazon box.
As I write this I'm glancing over at my son as he is trying to make a structure out of playing cards (which I will join him in doing after I finish
venting).... I look at this innocent kid and then I think about that dirt bag that stole HIS stuff and my blood all but boils.
And before anyone tells me.... YES.... I KNOW that I am very lucky in so many ways. I have a great kid, a great wife, a pretty good job, even my cats
are pretty great...... but THIS IS MESSED UP so please just let me vent!
To the thief: WHO THE F DO YOU THINK YOU ARE AND HOW DARE YOU?!?!?!?
Final thought: The only thing that is calming me down is that I truly believe that someone that does things like this will ultimately get whats coming
to them. Whether it's getting the crap beaten out of them when they are caught in the act or sharing a jail cell with Big Bubba.
Anyway, so there you have it. Some people are just dirt bags.... yet I guess we have to remind ourselves that nobody is injured, nobody is bleeding,
so we should carry on ..... but yeah, I think we are allowed to be EPICALLY pissed sometimes.
