When your car is stolen...along with your stuff

When your car is stolen…

What’s it like when your car is stolen? I found out 3 weeks ago.  Right out of our gated garage, at 2am.  At 8am, I watched a tape from our security camera, which showed a young man breaking into our garage, and in a matter of minutes, roll out the gate in my car.

My car was found 4 days later, not too far from home.  However, everything inside it was gone, including my new RX sunglasses.  Well, not everything was gone…he left his hamburger and coke debris ,which I assume he bought with the quarters I kept for parking meters, as well as a general mess.  He even left some things that were not mine.

What they left behind...

What he left behind…

But everything I carry in the trunk of my car for work was gone.  I am not sure why they wanted all my moving supplies…packing tapes, garbage bags, stuff that is only used by us for  our very specific work.  And really, can’t possibly be worth much to anyone on the streets…so it’s a mystery.

As a professional organizer, I spend my life assisting people to declutter their lives.  Encouraging them to be detached from their stuff and let things go.  Sometimes even shaking my head and wondering why on earth people are so attached to stuff.

However, having things disappear from you, without your consent or input…that’s another story.  It feels bad.  You feel violated.  I often get calls from frustrated family members who are threatening to throw everything out while their partner is off to the movies or sent to visit friends.  Fortunately, I am usually able to talk them out of this plan.

Over the years, I’ve worked with many families who were putting their homes back together after some kind of disaster…a lot of clients lost their homes in the horrible Oakland Hills fire of 1991.  One minute you have house and stuff and next minute you don’t.  I always admire those people and their ability to start over again.

Insurance covered some of my loss.  I now have a new car with an alarm system.  I’ve rebuilt my work supplies.  Life goes on.  I hope to take this lesson and apply it to my work.  Offering more compassion, more understanding.
