Must've been really harrowing to experience that. Disgusting how some people act. I'd be doing some serious thinking too if I experienced something like that.

Thank you. It’s pretty hard for us normal folk to rationalise I suppose.

Thanks. Think a few more days have put some perspective on the whole situation.

Sorry to hear about your ordeal. Hope you wake up every morning feeling a bit better. reading this thread im starting to appreciate how lucky I am living in the south of Ireland in the countryside. I have never even locked my car at night when parked at home, keys usually stay in the car.
Hope they can bring that scumbag to justice though. Good luck

Can't believe the bare face cheek that he just wandered into your garage  >:( >:(  Really makes my blood boil

Shame you didn't run the fookers over ! Absolute scum bags. All of us work hard for the nice things we have in life and these low life pond scum think they can get want they want by just stealing it. Not that I'm an advocate for owning firearms in the UK, but makes we wonder if that happened in the US, that their brains would probably be all over the floor !

As you have said you can't let the c*nts win and beat you. Just get a big dog and tie an elastic band round it's willy to make it even more aggressive  ;D ;D


Glad you are OK though.

Thanks Sootchucker. My overriding feeling is just one of total confusion now because of the way it happened. They never made any demands at all apart from asking me to lower my window but as you say, it’s the bare faced cheek of it. That’s why I’m so confused.

It may have been a distraction technique so as you try to work out what the guy wants someone else gets in the car. Strange to try that in a garage though.

Absolutely. Ideally they don’t want to come into your property as it’s a whole different ball game for sentencing I believe.
