Blood, Glass and Thieves
As I pulled into work this morning, I noticed a swarm of cop cars leaving the business park. I didn't think much of it until I pulled into my usual spot and there was an undercover detective standing in front of the office. He's like "do you work here miss?" I'm like hmmmm, should I lie? Wait a minute, I didn't do anything wrong. "Yes, I work here". Well, we just wanted to let you know there was a break-in, but the security guard won.
Apparently someone tried to break into our office for the third time in two years. The first time this happened I wasn't working here yet. There was a ring of thieves that worked for an alarm company. We were just moving into this building and when we called to have these guys come out and give us an estimate on the alarm, these guys broke in that very night (since they knew there was no alarm) and cleaned out the place. They were caught eventually. The second time I guess a new set of thieves got in and stole the plasma T.V. out of our conference room. We have a state of the art alarm system now with motion sensors all over the place. Last night someone tried to break in and the roaming security patrol caught him. He hit the guard with a bat or something over the head and the security guy shot him. YES - SHOT HIM! There is blood and glass all over the sidewalk right outside of my door. LOVELY! Shouldn't this be cause for a day off or something? I don't think I should have to work under these stressful conditions. hehe
Anyway, I'm really surprised because this is a nice neighborhood, there is rarely any violence over here, but for some reason, we have a lot of break ins. I guess because it's a business park and most of the companies have a lot of high tech gadgets.
UPDATE!! I just went to the bathroom and there was a bullet hole that came through the wall and ricocheted off of the stall and we found the bullet on the floor. UMMMMM - obviously the CSI guys weren't here to investigate because they wouldn't have missed this evidence.
I didn't have a chance to watch Dancing with the Stars last night, I'll sit down and watch it tonight and give a summary later in the evening.
