One of them decided to ride a bike away, I think the thief first tried my road bike but slipped and abandoned it in the alley (I recovered it), then decided to take my mountain bike instead.
Obviously nice to only lose 1 bike instead of 2, but it's really fuckin' irritating to think that I fixed this bike all nice for winter riding so some asshole could ride off into the sunset
The neighbors have some very fuzzy, blurry video that won't help to identify anyone but does show exactly what happened.
7:15 AM on Sunday, two people park a car outside our detached garage and kick in the door from the other side. In 7 minutes they stole a set of car wheels/tires, a bunch of my tools, rifled through Jessie's car, then drove off
Trying to remind myself of the various ways I'm am still quite fortunate
We can replace everything without major hardship
I've got insurance, serial numbers, documentation, etc.
I have good people to call to help me do the repairs
The theft could have been much, much worse
So many people deal with much worse trauma on a regular basis.
But damn, I'm really shook up right now
I'm swallowing a lot of hard pills after yesterday.
I thought that I had a pretty laid-back attitude toward material possessions. Y'know, it's only stuff, no reason to obsess over it, what am I gonna do about it anyway?
Turns out that, money aside, it's really fucking traumatic to have some assholes kick in your door and take your fucking bike.

My brain has been haunted by this @alex toot, so I recorded it in an attempt to rid myself of the curse.
