My Life as a San Francisco Realtor: Black 2001 Mercedes SLK 320 Hardtop Convertible - Stolen in San Francisco

Black 2001 Mercedes SLK 320 Hardtop Convertible - Stolen in San Francisco

I seem to have writer's block. Ever since my last blog entry BLIND ALLEGIANCE, I can't seem to concentrate on a new entry. You see I mentioned about the stolen car in that last entry and I can't get beyond it without writing another entry about it. My outside blog is titled "My Life as a San Francisco Realtor", so many of my entries continue 'the story'.

2001 SLK 320I've had that car since 2003, and I always loved driving it. It made for difficult times when I needed to chauffeur clients from place to place. Usually they wanted to drive their own cars, but once in awhile I had to borrow a friend's car. So now it's time to grow up. We just got a Steel Grey 2009 C300. Life goes on and I'll be much more respectable now.

Time for the last RANT, and then I'll be done. I am angry. If the Notes from the Universe have any bearing in truth, the as***le who stole my car will get his someday. The license plate 'TJS88' was lucky for us for 8 years. The car has a small dent in back, a cracked headlight and a number of Buddhist decals on the windows, one in front and one in back. If I ever see it again, believe me, I'll know it.

I'm surprised that your car hasn't been found abandoned somewhere. I'm thinking that it made it to one of those chop shops. I can't imagine how you feel, how frustrating to have part of your identity stolen like that.

Yeah Eric, very frustrating.... I can't imagine why it would make it to a chop shop. There aren't hundreds of SLKs running around. And it was TEN years old for christ's sake!
