When you usually meet police men its not under the best circumstances!
Tonight while teaching my little kiddies at TKD my cell phone started ringing, now not a lot of people have my number and well it rings so infrequently it took me a couple of minutes to realize it was mine! It turned out to be my other half calling. I was a little surprised he called because he knows I teach on Wednesday nights and I told him that. He was like I know I'd only call you if it was an emergency. So of course my first response is okay what's wrong.
It turns out that my best friend Christin's place had been broken into and that I needed to call her. After a short conversation, I made arrangements for my assistant instructor to take over the rest of my classes and off I went to Christin's... picking up some dinner for her along the way even though I know dinner was the last thing on her mind.
I kept her company and we started a list of what needed to be done while we waited for the police to show. She was lucky in the fact that, she wasn't home but her laptop and laundry money had been taken. As computer savvy stitchers I'm sure we'll all understand how much an impact the loss of a computer can have on us! Also being burgled in not a nice feeling.
I have to commend the local police force they sent a good looking cop with a great personality to check out her place. He was very sympathetic and quite through. He even took the laundry container for fingerprinting!
It turns out that attempts to force the locks on several apartments on different floors had been reported and so far Christin's apartment was the only one they were successful with.
So I've brought Christin home with me for the night. I know I wouldn't of wanted to stay home by myself after I've been robbed.
