Yesterday I received a phone call from my son. I thought he was saying, "I just got in a wreck, I laid my phone down and it was stolen." But he actually said, "Mom I am at the Rec. had my phone laying down and somebody stole it." As you know Ryan is away at college. The Rec. is the place he works out everyday because he loves to work out. I guess he and his buddy a long with other people always leave there bags and phones on a table. Well this time somebody decided to steal his phone. Ugh. What is it this week with people stealing my kids things. Well I called and called and called even left a few nasty messages for the thief. Finally I called our phone carrier and had his phone suspended. So if they were planning to use the phone on my dime that won't be happening but of course if they just needed a new phone and put their Sim card in it, well I guess Happy Birthday to them. Then Ryan told me on his phone which is all touch he had programed a special swipe so no one could get in his phone. I guess that means unless the thief is lucky and figures out the swipe, the phone is no good to him. Ryans expensive phone that we just bought him at Christmas will probably be in the bottom of a trash some where.
I know, I know with both my kids it was just stuff that was stolen and I am so thankful both of them are ok. GPS stolen ok can live with out, camera I guess she can live without but messing with mommas way of communicating with her son, NOT OK. Ryan went to the phone store to see what a phone would cost to buy out right, way to expensive. So he got on E-Bay last night and found a phone that he wanted and was very affordable. He should have it Friday of Saturday. In the mean time he has given me his room mates phone number if I should have to reach him.
I pray the thieves enjoy the things they stole but with a little bit of a guilty feelings every time they pick them up. Is it ok to pray for that? Probably not, so I pray the thieves enjoy their new toys. Better?
Man is it really only Wednesday?
