Well, lets see...
I had a cd discman and some cds stolen from my car, so I stopped putting anything of any value in my car. Then, from time to time I would find my car door ajar, and the loose change would be gone. That only made me smile, because I would imagine some crackhead was speeding towards his demise because of my "contribution". F--k him.
I was robbed at gunpoint while walking to the subway. That sucked, but the dirtbag only got $11...and my old cellphone. I followed him down into the trainstation, since there's been cops down there all the time since Sept 11, and I thought maybe I could corner him with a cop (I was pissed off), but he got out another entrance.
About a month after that, I went outside and my car was gone. That sucked. The cops recovered it in Brooklyn (a few miles away from my apartment), and of course then there were all sorts of fees to pay.
I've moved to a better part of town since then.
