Had to call 911 45 mins ago. I live in a large apartment complex and every set of buildings has a separate USPS cluster mail box.

Well anyway, at 11:45pm I hear metal rattling noises and at first don't think much of it, sometimes people get their mail late. But then I kept hearing it so I peaked out my window. Yep, two dudes somehow fully opened the entire box (can normally only do it with a master key) and one of them keeps checking if people are around.

So I called 911, got connected to the sheriff (I guess this city I live in now doesn't have a PD). Literally within two mins of talking to the dispatcher there's a helicopter circling overhead and then a minute after that, the responding deputy calls my cell phone asking if I have any additional info.

Then a minute later they're already at the mailbox outside my window checking it out. I ended up going out there to talk to them and at first they thought it was just a parcel box that had been broken into, but I said no it was the whole thing, and so the second guy checked and of course the entire door swung wide open (the entire door connecting all the boxes). "Oh wow, this is crazy!" (Side note, how do these guys not know how USPS-owned cluster boxes work?)

So I tell them I'm not usually used to a quick response like this because when I used to live in downtown San Jose I'd call to report a crime I was witnessing and the police literally never came at all. So one of them responded "uhhh yeah we do things differently here."

Lol.

Good bye to my BRZ… current used car market is too good not to take up on the offer. Made it somewhat stock (within what I can do & reinstalled stock parts) & traded in.


Traded in & got ‘22 Toyota Highlander XSE. I needed back seats to put the baby to help drop off baby to parents to baby sit, instead of making her do it all the time. Plus family hauler for the weekend. Of course, I didn’t need to trade in my BRZ & bought HL. That was the plan for a while, but having extra debt & extra bills will put us into financially tight plus not able to save for emergency isn’t smart idea.


My wife told me, I look so sad trading my BRZ. But gotta do what I gotta do for my family. I’ll def buy 86/BRZ again when used car market calms down (2~5yrs?).

Don’t worry, I’ll still be a Mod here clean up classified section, other spam thread & temp ban Tcoat once a while lol

I hope you or your loved one heal up quickly.

Is there anything we can do?

Well now, that is a right handsome machine you traded for -

Welp, after you get the kid(s) raised, you can always pick up on another small, fun machine.

I remember back in the day when I had to turn lose of my 1970 MGB-GT. The second kid just wouldn't fit along with the first one on that small jump seat in the back.

So, after going through several 4 door sedans, station wagons, mini-vans and full sized vans and the kids were all out of college, I got my 2006 Miata - back to fun driving - . After that, I calmed down a bit and got my 2013 FR-S - still a fun car.

So, you got lots of time to "catch up" -

Found out an old family friend passed away last night. Still very young late 40's ish. Apparently he was on a jog where he lives on Oahu yesterday and someone on a motorcycle hit him.
