Just got a knock on the door (I live in Curtin btw) advising me that a light was burning in the boot of my car (which I keep on the driveway). The cause was found to be a not completely shut driver’s door. Silly old me, I thought.
Fearing that the battery might have burned out as a result I set out on a 20 minute drive just to charge it up. As one does, I reached into the glove compartment to get the fascia for my (stunningly cheap and nasty) stereo only to find out that it was gone.
So, I believe that I did indeed leave the car unlocked after shopping yesterday morning and that some piece of scum must have sauntered up the driveway during daylight today to relieve me of the fascia, showing a master larcenist’s cunning by softly shutting the driver’s door afterwards rather than making any more noise. I am full of admiration and, naturally, hope that he or she dies soon.
It passed over a CD on the car floor to get to the stolen item, and also missed a more valuable item in the boot (which won’t be kept there again).
My question, though, is – anyone know what use one of these is by itself? the fascia, I mean, not the scumbag. Not the first time I’ve heard of these being nicked so no doubt one of our more streetwise posters can enlighten me?
