The Honeymoon is Officially Over

Friday, June 20, 2008

Just so you know, I likely won't be updating for a few days even though we're back on the mainland for good.

On the last day of our honeymoon, someone stole both Slappy's and my laptop bags out of our locked rental car. The bags contained not only laptops, but ipods, gameboys, checkbooks, prescription glasses (my 400 dollar bifocals, and Slappy's 200 dollar glasses), prescription medication (it would be AWESOME to be able to take my Xanax right now...) and a shitload of games, dvds and just our stuff. Other noteworthy items included NOLANotes' husbands Mignon Faget Tux Studs, Slappy's Mignon Faget Cuff Links, his yarmulke from the wedding and all our gift cards from the wedding (worth somewhere around 700 bucks).

Because our computers contained our credit and debit card information (and our checkbooks were taken) we've had to cancel all our debit and credit cards, so even though I have enough credit to get a new computer to replace mine, I don't have a freaking card to pay for it with. Or any money to get gas to drive to my mom's from my sister's. Or any way to pay for lunch.

Oh, and most importantly, they pretty much stole my faith in humanity because who does that kind of shit? What kind of person does that? I just don't understand.

Fucking fuckers.

How awful! I can't believe this happened. I'm so sorry that you have to go through all the hassle and the financial loss.

Can't think of a single thing to say that will make this better.

Just know that I'm sending evil thoughts to whomever took your stuff.

Wow. And even if it was recovered, it's still going to be in Hawaii while you're...not. That really sucks. Sorry to hear that the honeymoon ended this way. :(

Wow, Katie ... That really does f___ing suck.

Joining the wonderful world of weiners in sending some really, really evil thoughts to those f___ers. Lets hope their ____ drops off, or some dude shoots them in the foot.

Oh Katie! I'm so sorry! Grab a voodoo doll when you get back to NOLA and do some real damage!

Man, that just sucks.

nola said...

Fuck fuckity fuck. For reals. Sorry, boo. Serious bummer abt every item. Really, which is the worst? Laptop would seriously suck and worry me re: inof on it. But wedding gift cards? Ouch. And all your toys, too? Yeah, serious bummer. Is there any travel insurance or car insurance you can claim it under? /crossing fingers there is...

Daisy Duke said...

I am so, so sorry. If you booked the trip on a credit card you might have a back up travelers insurance through your card company.

~~Silk said...

You have my sympathy. (I'd be screaming "Not fair! Not fair!") Don't let it get you down. It's just another challenge, and you're getting very very good at those.

Ashley said...

that really blows.... can't really say anything that will help here, but if you know who gave you the gift cards, and they have the receipt, you can call the company and have the gift card # cancelled so that whenever they try to use it, it comes up void... will your home insurance cover this kind of stuff? I know when we travel, our insurance covers our belongings... but i'm in canada so i'm not sure its the same in the US...

hope otherwise than the crappy ending, that the honeymoon went alright (they don't have security cameras where the car was parked do they?)

That really sucks, but maybe that is a lesson for people about consumerism and responsibility.
Who actually needs all of that crap for a vacation? Laptops, gameboys, ipods, dvds on your honeymoon? (good luck with married life) Have you ever heard of conversation and a good book? And why would you bring $700 worth of gift cards with you? Have you heard of travelers checks? Also, you should know better than to leave anything of value inside a car, locked or not, within the view of passers by. Hmmm.....maybe next time you'll use the trunk.

jojo said...

WOW, I think that last commentor is the one who has your stuff! So sorry to hear this, as if the whole boob thing wasn't enough. Just how much is one person supposed to deal with anyway...probably bad question to ask...I might just get the answer back at me.
Sorry I don't have anything spectacular to say that will make it all better...thinking of you.
Have a safe trip home.

Don't be such a fucking arsehole! Have you got no compassion, no sympathy? Have you even got a goddamn heart?

And if you're going to make a malicious comment like that, at least have the balls to sign your name, you figgin COWARD.

Katie ... That dickwad does not even deserve your attention, so I hope you dont get upset.

Mr Anonymous, you toughie - Blow it out you ass, you fuckwit.

Dude, I can swear.

Sorry about that, by the way ... To anyone who might be offended ...

Forgive me? :-)

the queen said...

Okay.

First off, contact your homeowner's insurance - as I found out when my car was broken into, that's what covers stuff in your car - I don't know the logic, but there it is.

Second, let us know where those gift cards came from and what amounts. Som e of humanity is nice.

(Except for this shitsucker anonymous.)

Moondance said...

Man, does that suck!

.....

Yah, that's all I got.

That just sucks so much.

(by the way, my word verification code ends in "MF." I think the blogger bot sympathizes with you, too.)

Fucking assholes. Hope they OD on your Xanax.

Monkling said...

That blows big time. I sometimes wish I really did have a Guido to send around to break people's legs.

Flea said...

Oh Katie! I'm so sorry! How horrible. I hope your life resumes some level of normalcy soon.

I know it's not a great replacement, but I order glasses through zennioptical.com Ordered five pair this week (me and two children) and only spent 86 bucks. You know, till things are back to normal.

I am so sorry to hear of this! I don't know exactly where you were or where my cousin's family was but they were robbed in Hawaii also just this past winter. Their condo was broken into while they slept and all the stuff was stolen from the living area while they slept in the bedroom area. Scary. What a way to ruin a vacation and a honeymoon and a sense of trust and faith in mankind.

Yo said...

UGH!! LAME!! glad to hear the majority of it got taken care of, though. AND, no one was hurt. what if you came up on the dickweed (ew, what is a dickweed?) that was robbing you?

gross, he'd totally put his dickweed cooties all over you.
