Thanks for the Support!
I just want to say Thank You to all you sweet women who have sent me comments about T's truck. T's mother and father went to the get the truck after it was impounded because they bought it for him when he was 15 therefore their name was on the title. When they got to the impound lot to get the truck, it was so much worse than they thought. The truck was on two tires and two cinder blocks, however the tires were not the ones that T had on the truck. The inside of the truck was demolished and when they looked under the hood, there was nothing there. They popped the hood and it was empty, no engine, no radiator, no transmission, nada! T's mother told me that her heart just sank. The police report said nothing about this much damage. Then the something strange happened. A unnamed person called the place where it was impounded looking for that exact truck body and offered to pay $200 for it, but they wanted the title to it. That seemed very suspicious to everyone and the fact that they left no name and no number and just said they would call back about it. Did someone do this after the police found it? The only people who have had it since the police was the towing company and the impound lot, are they suspicious? Did the officer just do a bad report? Who knows what is going on at this point, but the police did find the truck in a run down area in Savannah where it was parked in an alley. Apparently the police have found approx. 20 stolen and stripped cars here over the past 2-3 years. Why has no one looked into this? Maybe they have, but this stolen car story is getting more bizarre by the day. All of T's history notes, school bag, and Cd's are gone. Now this is the scary part, so it his work jacket. He works for a security company as a security guard and wears a jacket with the logo all over it. Now some dishonest thief has a security jacket. It's not like they can get into T's work because you have a ton of security checkpoints, but this person could be wearing it around Savannah and could easily put a person at ease because they think they are a security guard and then get robbed or worse. I am so ready for all of us to wash our hands of it, go to a dealership, and buy a new truck. Our friends are getting a security system at their home where it was stolen and T has told me that one day when we get married we will not be living right in Savannah and we will have a security system and guns. He is scared to drive into Savannah and even leave a car at the mall while we go shopping. This entire thing has turned our lives upside-down and I am getting sick of it. I completely understand his worry and I am a little worried also, but let's move on with our lives. Thanks for reading my venting and for all your support. When you get something stolen, you feel so vulnerable.
