Some folks pm me to ask how my MacBook got stolen from me in my own house. Well, you should get a cup of tea because the story is rather long, or you can always skip this.
Thursday morning at around 10 o’clock, I was home alone at started to prepare for classes, packed my books and headed to the shower. In the middle of shampooing my hair, the bell began to rang continuously, I hurried to open, it was the friendly neighbor from across the street, she started to tell me in an alarming tone that she and her son saw a man reaching for something inside my living room by my window and ran away. I wasn’t sure what she was talking about, ran to the living room at the right of the entrance door and saw that my MacBook’s no longer sitting on my sofa. I stood petrified and tears started to flow, then I saw my neighbor’s son coming back on bike, he ran after the thief but could not catch the man because a car (an Accent, gold) came to fetch him 2 blocks farther. I broke into tears, it meant I’m losing my Mac for good.
The lady said the man was in his fifties, shabbily dressed and kept wandering on the street before coming close to my house. The window of my living room is tall from the ceiling to about counter height, it has glass doors that you can slide wide enough for someone to reach half of his body in but not climb in completely. And my couch is placed against the wall with the mentioned window.
30 minutes later, a police report was filled, the cops didn’t offer much help.. I even felt that these kind of cases are too trivial for them to bother. But that laptop means the world to me. I feel so incredibly stupid, if only I’d brought my mac back to my room instead of leaving it on the couch. If only I had backup my films, iTunes library and photos. If only I listened to my mom, who always said to be careful when I’m alone…
I had many more of these if-only-I-hads, it’s been 2 days that I couldn’t get more than 3 hours of sleep. I spent most of the nights feeling so guilty and thinking I should’ve known better. So guys, be careful when you stay home alone, and place your laptops far away from your windows and doors. I’ve always been rather careless, but losing 2000$ has taught me a big lesson.
My MacBook Pro got stolen from me at home yesterday. I’m so fucking angry because I can’t do much to track it, I’ve filed a police report and stuff.. The only things I could do atm is to wait for the thief to connect on Wifi so I could locate it with iCloud, and scour pawn shops in the neighborhood. This is a permanent hiatus post, I won’t be posting anymore.
