Thanks for breaking car window to steal cigarettes

To the Editor:

Sometime early this morning, July 8, someone came on to our property, threw a rock through the window of my daughter’s brand new car that she works two jobs to pay for, plus the insurance, and stole a carton of cigarettes.

Did I mention that today is her and her twin’s birthday?

She got up, went out the door at 6 a.m. to her car to work her first job of the day, thinking about her gifts she will get later, the party she will go to and what a beautiful day it is, then wham, she is suddenly knocking on our bedroom door, screaming and crying.

Thanks. You know who you are, and I am furious at how you made my daughter feel. You hurt her pride, ruined a happy day for her and made her lose a little more faith in her fellow citizens.

The carton of cigarettes you stole is trivial and unimportant. I bet you did not spend one minute thinking about how your actions were going to make someone else feel, and how costly it would be to repair the damage to the door and window.

I hope you read this, and although I highly doubt you have a conscience, I hope that you are man enough to come back, apologize and pay the $500 deductible that she now has to pay, on top of keeping up with her payments and insurance.

You ruined her birthday and hurt her heart. Thanks again.
