With my hubby been out of work for a couple of months, I’ll say things have been pretty rough. But I was lucky enough to get offered an extra shift on Sunday rates.. Super excited… 10 1/2 hours on penalty rates.. That shift would solve my rego – due in 2 weeks AND 1/2 of our water bill! What a relief…

I finished my shift at 5am Monday morning & discovered my car had been broken into.. Two smashed windows, glass everywhere, my glove box completely missing as the centre console.. My heart sank.. In doing what I thought was ‘helping’ the family turned out to be the opposite..

$800 insurance excess. If I had $800 I would’ve already paid my rego & water & rates… My daughters carseat was broken as well completely snapped the top off, and no, insurance doesn’t cover that either.. It’s not a fixed feature.. Also I realised they had stolen my toll pass, of course I rang to cancel it & was then stung with a $50 bill, for the loss of their equipment.

I’ve had many tears & feel so guilty for picking that shift up. I’ve since been paid so my car is drivable (for the next few weeks anyway), I’ve borrowed a spare carseat thankfully from a good friend. But we’re now back in the same position…

I know to many it may seem like a minor inconvenience, these low life’s have no clue how this has affected my family. Seriously, it’s not worth having nice things or in my case working..

  • They certainly are low life’s with no thought of how their actions impact on others, good hard working citizens. Makes my blood boil


  • So sorry to hear such a horrible thing happened. Thieves really do only care about themselves and don’t consider who they’re affecting. Whoever it was would’ve known they were hurting someone with a child as they wrecked the seat. I hope karma works out in your favour and things swing right around.


  • So sorry :( xx


  • You poor thing. People have no respect for others these days.


  • I am so sorry, I really hope things have improved now. My husband’s car was broken into while he was visiting his dying father in the hospital. What is going on with people today? It is so upsetting.


  • the nerve of some people just to destroy thing makes me mad. :( sorry hun about your car
