Low Rider



This is what I saw when I walked out to my car this morning. Our Miata's tires had been completely lifted.

I walked out. I saw the car. "Balls. Really? Really??" I walked back inside to notify my husband. The conversation went something like this...

Me: Dude... your car has no tires.
Him: What?
Me: Your wheels have been lifted, dude. (for some reason calling him "dude" felt like it broke the news easier.)
Him: Ah man, really?

There we were, me in my work clothes,  him in his underpants. Standing outside staring at our poor poor car.

I think we need to find a new place to live...

  1. Gah! Oh my gosh, Hannah, I'm so sorry! What a way to start your Friday :-/

    Here's hoping the rest of the day gets (significantly) better from here on out. ...Thinking of you!

  2. Ah, that SUCKS! I live in a pretty small and safe community and, just recently, friends woke up in the middle of the night and spotted a man taking the tires off their car in their driveway. Maybe a bright side is that they didn't cut the soft top as well? Maybe?

  9. This is horrible! I can't believe the nerve of people sometimes. We had 4 bags stolen from our car earlier this summer, and it makes you feel so violated! Hope you're able to get everything straightened out. Xo, Katie

  13. I visited your blog when I saw a link from Amy's--what a terrible first post to see! So sorry! Although, I have to admit, I laughed out loud at the "dude" comment. I think you're right, though... "Sweetheart, you have no tires" just doesn't have the same ring to it...

  35. That's so rubbish, sorry to hear. I so hate people like that who think they have the right to take whatever they want, things other have worked hard for... Monsieur told me to tell you "credit to you for driving stick shift"...I'm sure you know what he means ;-)

    I hope your week will be ok now, Love from London xo
