I guess it has been more than 2 years since it last happened, but I still feel like this stuff (car break ins, house break ins) happens to me more than it does to other people and I don't know why. Last night I got back to the car park at the train station my car had been broken into.
They had tried to steal the car too, but in the end they gave up but not before they damaged the casing underneath where the key goes.
One of the reasons that they didn't steal the car is that it is a bit temperamental to start at the moment. I was just waiting for my mechanic to get back from holidays before I got him to have a look at why the key won't even turn in the ignition some times.
So now I have to figure out what to do today. If I take it to get the window fixed today the tradesman probably won't be able to get it started, but if I wait to get the problem fixed before I get the window fixed, that will mean that I won't have a car for a few days at least.
Either way, it's going to cost lots of dollars for me in the very near future.
