Bah humbug to the idiot car thief

With the million things I have to do to get ready for the holidays, I never thought sitting down to write this letter was one of them. I’m writing because I am really upset, and I need to vent. This week some low-life stole my car as it was warming up behind the Steak and Rib in Breckenridge.I had just gotten off work and was away from my car for less than 10 minutes. I take some responsibility because I did not lock the car. I realize that was a dumb move, but when you live in a place for 23 years, you kind of trust people. This is not to mention that Christmas is just days away. I understand that this person may have been really cold and probably had one too many at the bars. Hey, I would have given you a ride if you had just asked. What I don’t understand is that my car was found at Val D’Isere which isn’t even a block away.It was farther for you to drive than to walk. I do feel somewhat lucky because this idiot didn’t do any damage to my car. I am, however, really mad that he or she took the keys and stole all my CDs. I really hope you enjoy my 6- and 8-year-old daughters’ CD’s. You and your friends (if you have any) must really be enjoying this music.Just want you to know I am glad you got home safe and warm, and that your little joy ride only cost me about $500.I have to have the locks redone because you couldn’t just leave the keys. If the Christmas spirit moves you, I would love it if you just tossed the keys back behind Steak and Rib where the car was and save me a lot of time and money. Keep the CD’s as an early Christmas present. Let this be a warning to all who are as naive as me, and do have a Merry Christmas. I would also like to send a special thank you to Officer Bryan Ridge for all his help that night, I really appreciate it.
