Car Robbed
« on: March 19, 2015, 01:44:26 pm »


Just a warning chaps & ladies.

Decided to get my car washed yesterday, yep, it is that time of year!
Pulled in to local 'hand wash' to get car cleaned.
Jumped out to let them get to work. Guys asks for key to move car to next station.
He moves that car but stays in car while drying off car.
They finish of car cleaning, they've done a great job.

Wake up this morning to find my car thoroughly  'turned over'!
Every pocket and cubby hole emptied out and searched.

Nothing valuable taken, just time consuming and very annoying!

Coincidence?   Probably but you've been Warned!

Hi, if you can point the finger tell the Police they may have had a lot of complaints already.

Hi about 10 years back my car was robbed of the radio.  I had cleaned it the day before and I reported the theft that evening.  Next morning I noticed there was a big palm print (not mine!) and called the Police.  I was very impressed they came round dusted and copied off the print.  I made a further enquiry and it turned out they had some sort of inspection going on and were accompanied by an "observer".  So I was just a "demonstration" to show what they could do!
Never heard another word.
The upside was that my car radio got up graded from tape to CD.
Having said that I have had very recent contact with the Police on another matter and that was very good.
regards Roy

We have an excellent "hand" car wash just down the road from where we live. It is staffed almost entirely by "Eastern Europeans" and by 'eck don't they work hard - no matter what the weather. Everybody who uses it just stays in their car during the wash and the staff just direct them to wherever they need it put. 4 quid for a standard wash and 6 quid for wash and chamois dry - great value so not worth doing it yourself.  :-))

We have one of those near us, they swarm over the car like ants.... takes about 15 mins and the job they do is superb, especially for a fiver!
I have a black car so any missed bits stick out like a sore thumb

I hate to be pedantic, but you cannot rob a car! Only people can be robbed.

United should have won the match, but they were robbed.


The shop wanted 2 quid for a loaf of bread. Daylight robbery.

Because we learn from other countries it is not theft, but "illegal use of a motor vehicle" otherwise how else can they protect their sons from going to Gaol. XXXX AKA expletive
