Why do bad things always happen to me?

Sunday, July 01, 2012

This is the only place where I feel like I can vent about this.
This blog has nothing to do with weight loss or eating healthy.

Last night I had to work my night job. I let my daughter
have two girlfriends stay the night. They are all 17 years old.
Apparently, one of my daughter's friends talked my daughter
into having 3 guys come over. My daughter knew one of the
guys, but not the other two. And apparently,
one of those other 2 guys stole my laptop.

This laptop is my work laptop and has everything I need for my
job on it. It also has a lot of personal stuff on it too.

The problem is that my daughter doesnt have any information onthese
two guys. She only knows the one guy but doesn't know
where he lives and he doesn't have a phone. He uses his sisters phone.
When we called his sister, she refused to give us her brothers address or phone
number. She claimed she didn't know them. Who doesn't know their own
brothers address and home phone? Then the woman hung up on me.

I filed a police report, but they basically told me that if they manage
to track down the kid that stole it, they don't have enough info to get a
search warrant. So basically, if the kid doesn't admit to taking it, then there's
nothing they can do.

I'm so screwed. That laptop was close to $3000 and now
I have to figure out how to tell my boss on Monday. And
what's even worse is that I have my annual review with my
boss on Tuesday. I may end up losing my job because of this.

I have had so much bad luck over the past few years, that this
is just icing on the cake. I don't know what I've done to
deserve all of this. I think bad things just always happen
to good people.

So now it's 1 am and I'm a mess. I didn't even eat my dinner
because I'm sick to my stomach. And I'm fearing for my
job come Monday. My entire weekend is ruined.

I guess I'm just looking for some Spark support out
there and lots of hugs.

    Oh, I'm so sorry this happened! I know things have been tough for you lately. All I can do is send you a huge hug through cyberspace. I hope everything went okay with your boss today and good luck with your review on Tuesday.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. That's a really upsetting situation... Today is Monday and I hope the situation resolved itself better than you feared. Whatever happens, remember that you are a powerful and beautiful woman and that you'll get through it. This wasn't your fault (or you daughter's) and you will get through it. We're here for you. emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry you are going through this! You have all my love and support as you meet with your boss. I went through a similar situation where I had to confess to my principal that there was a situation on the day that I was getting my end of the year eval. I was positive I was going to lose my job. Turns out, my eval was already written and the situation had no bearing on anything. I'm hoping it will work out the same for you. Sending hugs and prayers!

    So sorry this is happening to you. I pray that your boss is understanding and that you do not lose your job over this. I also pray that the guy who took the laptop has a change of heart & returns it to you.
    You are in my thoughts & prayers. I pray to hear a good report soon.
    I don't know why life's trials & tribulations seems to come in waves. One problem crashing down before you've recovered fully from the last one.
    I can't offer solutions but I can offer prayers & cyber hugs.

    I'm so sorry! I can't imagine how you are feeling right now. I will be saying prayers for you that things go well at work when you tell your boss. Please take care of yourself! (((HUGS)))

    Ohhh darling.. I am so sorry to hear about this! =[=[ What a MISTAKE on your daughters part!

    I'm hoping that your boss will be at least a little understanding! I would definitely let them know ASAP and make sure you sound frantic over it, so they know you're passionate about it.. Maybe you could even get your daughter on the bandwagon of paying for it HERSELF (or at least paying you BACK for it =]) Might be a good lesson to not play with boys she DOESN'T KNOW! (ugh..)

    And note: At least it was just a laptop stolen while your daughter was flirting with danger! Much much worse could have happened if you think about it like that....

    Big big hugs my dear =[ So sorry you're going through this right now!!! Lots of positive thoughts on getting that comp back!!!!

    You poor dear. I am so sorry to hear about what happened. I would let my boss know as soon as I could. Regardless of what happens, you want to protect yourself and work product. Remember to take care of yourself this weekend. You need to eat to keep up your strength and think clearly. Unfortunately the police are right and who would admit they stole it? Plus I'm sure the sister knows and just doesn't want to deal with it. He's probably done it many times before. You know they always say God gives you only what you can handle, but some days I wonder why I'm so blessed to get so much. Take a deep breath. You will get through this. Prayers and hugs that everything will be ok for you when you meet with your boss. Let us know what happens.

    I am so sorry to read this. emoticon
    Do you have your boss's phone number? It seems like it might be better to let him/her know as soon as you can since the laptop has work information on it. I hope your job is not affected. It doesn't seem fair that it would be, but sometimes I can be naive about the way the world works.
