ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " V "


Today's letter is " V ".
" V " is for vulnerable and feeling violated.
Yesterday we discovered that some things were stolen from our garage sometime during the night.
For some reason our garage door didn't get closed and it remained open all night. I didn't discover it until I went out to pick up our newspaper. There were things taken which we had planned to sell on Ebay and had some personal attachment to them. Even though it was our fault for leaving the door open to have someone take our personal property makes us feel very violated and vulnerble. We called the police and filed a report. We hope no one else in our neighborhood will experience this problem.
For others participating in ABC Wednesday go to Mrs. Nesbitt's link on my sidebar.
I will be back to blogging on Thursday when our kids return to Oregon.

This is disgusting. I really despise the lowlife that do this sort of thing and I applaud you for blogging about such a personal incident. Such a sad sigh of our times. V is for vile creatures that do this.

Oh that is a terrible feeling. Our home was broken into years ago, and I remember that violated feeling!!

Hope you get your things back.

Quand quelqu'un s'introduit chez soit, et vole quelque chose, en effet on se sent violé. J'espere que tu vas bien. Je pars pour NYC, alors je te souhaite de bonnes fêtes de fin d'année.
When someone enters either in and steal something, in fact you feel violated. I hope you are okay. I go to NYC, then I wish you good holiday season.

Oh, I am so very sorry! What a horrible thing to happen!

Kansas Bob said...

Wow.. I'm sad about this. Our home was burglarized years ago around the holidays.. I remember those feelings that you describe.. violated is what I remember.. and a bit scared as well.

Hoping that the holidays will be great even still!

Susie,

I'm so sorry, I know how awful you must feel. It's not so much the loss of the items as it is the idea that scummy people were so close.

But take heart, you are rich beyond words with all your friends and family,

We miss you all, especially this time of year.

A sad V, but unfortunately very appropriate. I hope you get your things back.

Reader Wil said...

Burglary is awful! We had it once when we were away for a weekend. It was not only terrible for us but also for the neighbours who looked after the house.

CG said...

am so sorry to hear this. We had bikes stolen from our garage once. it made us feel just as you do - vulnerable.

Our home was broken into once, and everything wss gone thorugh in our bedroom. I remember my husband saying that very thing. He said he felt like what he imagined a woman must feel like who had been violated.

I'm sorry that you had such a sad occasion for the letter v.

oh how horrible, I can understand just how you feel. I try to make sure that everything is locked up tight every night... in fact I'm going out to the garage right now to make sure!!

Jay said...

I understand those feelings. We had a car stolen from our front drive once, just feet from our sons' bedroom. Very scary to think that strangers with ill intent were that close.

I hope you can put this behind you.

joan said...

Oh, I am so sorry. I've have hearing about this kind of thing alot this Christmas. I just don't understand thieves but am glad you were not hurt. Have a good time with your family.

antigoni said...

I'm sorry for the bad experience you had. I hope you leave all these behind you soon.

Laurie said...

HOw terrible. I never will understand people sometimes.

I just found out that photos I had of kids on my site were stolen and turned into something perverse on this other site.

I found referrals to my site from a url that contained some rather suspicious text so I reported it to my local authorities who turned it over to the feds. I did not click on the site for fear of what I might find. But it seems my suspicions were warranted. This site steals innocent photos of kids and perverts them. In my case they linked back to the original photo on my site.

I have decided to pull all photos of kids from my site and never post another one again. I am sick to my stomach that there are creatures out there that do such things. I knew they existed but I never really thought it would happen to me.

I am sorry to hear about your recent incident. My house was broken into years ago too so I understand how you feel. I'm glad you are safe.

Meredith Teagarden said...

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this! UGH!

I am sorry for you Sue. Our home was burgled once too. It seems like many of us have experienced this sort of thing. Please don't let these 'lowlifes' spoil you Christmas. - Dave

Hilary said...

So sorry to hear that.. it's also vile.

Pequete said...

I'm sorry...

AphotoAday said...

That is horrible -- what's wrong with people anyway?

The Riverbum said...

Isn't it just a sickening feeling, knowing that someone has your stuff and has been inside your place without permission? Someone stole a boat motor from me several years ago, and it just made me ill feeling!

tsduff said...

Sorry to hear about the violation of your things. I know how badly that feels - and I hope the thieves don't return.
