Nothing like a shock in the morning to wake you

It was only a matter of time and now it's happened. As I got into the car this morning I noticed the doors were unlocked and the Sat Nav was missing. It is not the first time that my beloved husband accidently left the doors unlocked.

Stupid central lock with stupid remote. From far away you have no idea whether you have locked the door now when you are in a hurry as my husband always is. It was also not the first time that he left the doors unlocked and it would not have been the first time that the Sat Nav was gone as a result of it. An open door may tempt a saint or opportunity makes the thief.
Needless to say I was really upset. Not mad at my husband. After all he didn't do it on purpose, I was just mad that someone would be such a petty thief in our little village and mad that we would have to get a new one. I was also not looking forward to tell my hubby.
When I finally did ring him, I asked first whether he had taken it out of the car (which he never does). But this one time, he did and he told me he lent it to a friend and he forgot to tell me. What are the odds? Here I was sitting in work, worried how to break the news to him that it had happend a second time when really he just lent it to a friend. I was so relieved. Now my day seems so much brighter.

Too bad you have to worry.I would've felt the same way too. Glad it wasn't stolen
