there's a thief in the house!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Ugh! I'm so mad! Some is stealing from lulu and me!!! We are the nicest people and would lend you money if you needed it and we had it, so why steal???? Let me explain.....we had 5 cans sitting on a dresser marked: school loan, vacation money, bills, christmas, and one with just our names on it. At the end of everyday, we put all our change into a plastic cup next to the cans, and one the weekends I would evenly divide the change between the cans. When a can gets full, we roll the change, deposit itinto our bank account, and pay what ever it was for. Vacation went into savings and the one with our names on it we decided we we're gonna use it for our wedding. It was the biggest can. Each weekI would peek into the can to check its fullness. But I haven't checked it since christmas. At that time, the wedding can was about a quarter of the way full. Today I checked it for the hell of it and noticed it looked a bit empty. So I emptied it out to find 2 dimes, 1 nickel, and $2 in pennies!!!! The change just barely covers the bottom of the can! Someone stole our wedding money!!! The only people that live in the house is me, lulu, and her son jimmy. Every other weekend, my son, joey, lulu's brother, stephen, and his son, cam, stay at our house, but both joey and stephen have "sticky fingers" so we keep our bedroom door locked unless we are sleeping. Joey doesn't bring a bag with him and there is no way he could fit that much change in his pockets. Cam is too little to reach the cans. If stephen took the change, we would have heard it in his pants, but like I said, our door is locked when he is there...with a padlock.....so we don't really think it was him either. That leaves jimmy. Usually if we go someplace, and he is home alone, we leave our door open cuz we figured we could trust him. He's almost 22! Works full time, makes damn good money. Why would he steal? I'm so upset i cant sleep! :(

    I'm so sorry this happened! We had change stolen also, but it was not a family member that we trusted. That must be so difficult.

    Take care of yourself and I hope you will get this straightened out soon!!

    Lulu wont see jimmy until Thursday evening. She asked if I could go to my sisters for a few while she talks to him about it. She's trying to get me to relax until then.

    You need to do everything in your power to protect yourself - NOW! ESPECIALLY since this is negatively impacting your SLEEP! :(

    What does Lulu have to say about this?

    (Please bear with my strong tone here as I do *not* wish to offend you in any way........but your story resonated with me for a number of reasons (don't ask) - let's just say that financial misdeeds of *any* kind are HUGE "hot buttons" for me, and this is a doozy!)

    I will keep you and Lulu in my best thoughts and wish for a quick resolution in your favor!
