Default Damn Thieves!

I just finished working and went to my desk to shutdown my computer, grab my phone, bag, travel mug, etc. and head out. A few cords were pulled from my computer and at first I couldn't figure out what happened. Then I see my phone and other stuff is missing. Video evidence showed the SOBs sneak onto our floor and make off with my bag and various other stuff!

The good news - my phone couldn't hold a charge while using it (only around 5 minutes at best which is why it was plugged in at my desk instead of my pocket), so I was planning on getting a new phone anyway.

The bad news - amongst other sentimental things, every one of my favorite HBT recipes was saved on that stupid little device! Now I can't even remember all of the delicious recipes that I no longer have saved.....

Argh!

If you have no security I wouldn't leave anything unattended for a minute.

10:1 the cleaning crew mapped out who has what for the raiders.

Man, that sucks. I am sorry.

Moral of the story: always have at least two copies of everything, preferably, in different physical locations. Not that such advice helps you now.

Any chance your computer has that radar thingy? Or they could track it down somehow?

Sometimes the phone company can GPS your phone location IF it's on AND the GPS is enabled...

I work at a large university, and laptops disappear at an alarming rate. I lock my door if I'm going to be out of sight for 5 seconds. I've caught anonymous strangers checking door knobs after 5pm.

Where there's opportunity, there will be criminals. Or, locks are to keep honest people out.

OP, I'm sorry for your loss!
