    Default the cheek of thiefs these days!

    I just come home to find that my BF's mothers car, which is parked out on the shared car park with one less wheel as someone theifed it during the night left the hub cap and just left the car with 3 wheels!

    my car was sat right next to hers, might keep the blind open tonight and snoop!

    Sounds like someone that felt they needed a tire. They only took what they "needed"

    Call me a Pollyanna if you wish. Wanting to see positive motives in people when bad things happen.

    Ugh. Looks as though she'll be scrambling to find a tire this week. Have you talked to her (BF's mother)? How upset was she?

    Oh no, that is terrible. I hate thieves. I am not nearly as nice as the Villagers that thought that they desperately needed the tire so they stole it, I hope that karma catches up with the thieves and the tire goes flat and leaves them stranded somewhere that they will have a long hard walk to civilization .

    Oh man that stinks. I hope they catch those who stole the 1 tire. And I wonder why only 1 tire.

    got some wheel locking bolts for the car and i bough tsome for my car too incase they come back for more, ill only stop worring about my car until i have them put on then it stops anyone nicking the tyres, im trying to keep watch so i dont want to go sleep will have to check on it during the night.

    its not the first time someone has messed with her car, a few years back someone nicked the plates while they were on holiday and put them on another car and stole petrol from a petrol station.

    i just hope my car is alright in the morning

    i forgot to mention, they tried to get the other side but we think that they got disturbed as they had the hubcap off.

    they left all the bolts tho, which was good so the spare could go on

    That's a bummer! I hope it doesn't cost her too much to buy a new tire.
