Today was an odd day. Not bad exactly, but definitely odd.
I went to work for a scheduled systems upgrade. Lily and the kids went to Central Park and after work we met in Chinatown. When we returned to Long Island we found my front passenger window was broken and my GPS unit stolen.
Now I didn’t exactly leave the unit out, it was in the center console. But the window mount was sealed to the window so I left it there. The round rubber from the suction cup is still there, just not the rest of it.
According to the police there has been a rash of break-ins with people looking for GPS units. They smash the window and look into the console for the unit. If you don’t have a GPS then you’re just pissed. If you do have one put away then you’re also out a GPS unit.
I’m not really angry about it since these things happen. I’ll take the car to the dealer and hope that my insurance covers most of it. Other than this, today was pretty good.
Wow. That really bites. How did the kids react?

They were scared. My son was afraid that the person who broke the window was still around.
He’s good now and made some funny comments about the whole thing.
