People suck.

My parents' house got broken into today. They took all the TVs (four in all), the DVD player, my mother's mink jacket and her Coach purse. My neighbor saw a man in camoflauge running around back there the other day, so that's probably who did it.

The sad part is that my mother is the type of person that would probably have given them something if they needed it. She's the no-kid-should-ride-the-bus-take-all-my-friends-home-even-if-its-out-of-the-way type. Or the get-out-of-bed-to-help-someone type.

:(

It's not always about need so much as greed and opportunity. And what could she do about that? Nothing, really. Be glad that your parents weren't there when it happened and that they're safe.

Thanks...

I, too, am happy that they weren't there when it happened.
I don't even want to think about that.
Oh My God.

That's horrible. Please let me know if there is something I can do... seriously.

Thanks...

My parents have insurance, so it is all covered.

Thanks for the offer, though. :)
i'm so sorry to hear about this, brandi:-( will homeowners' insurance cover that type of thing?

Yeah...

Their homeowner's insurance is covering everything.

They are immediately sending $1000 for the mink jacket (furs are treated differently than other things) and the rest will have to be negotiated.

They are going to take the excess money (the mink was a gift, etc) and buy security doors. I tried to talk them into a security system, but to no avail.

Re: Yeah...

What about the windows? Do they know how whoever broke in got in?

Re: Yeah...

Yeah,

The got in through the back door. They broke the window there. Since they are going to use some of the insurance money to buy security doors, the door is of little or no consequence.

On a side note, my mom said that she was going to call my dad's cell phone (they took that, too) to see who answered and cuss them out.

She tried it, but my dad had a pay as you go plan and no minutes. Oh well.
