Chasing The American Dream

February 13, 2005


I drove back home on Friday night. Dog-tired. Long week. I drive into the apartment complex and there's not a parking spot to be had. Figures. I park seemingly miles away and have to drag my three bags to my apartment. I get to my door and discover something so totally unbelievable, mindboggling, and downright selfish.

Someone had actually stolen my friggin' doormat! It was sentimental to me. A hand-painted picture of a family of mini-daschounds. I used to have two. "Zeke" still lives with the ex. Now who the hell would have the nerve to actually steal something like that? I'm at a loss for words and disappointed in my fellow mankind.


  • Ouch.

    I'm sure there's a lesson like "Don't be attached to material things..." or some other cliche.

    But ouch. Sorry!

  • Maybe you should take a walk around your complex and see if you can find it. Then take it back.

  • Sorry to rain on your parade, but it's what I've come to expect in South Florida.

    No doormats in apartments or condos. I think the same happened to me in my very first apartment in Florida (which was in an enclosed building BTW). Kinda sucks, don't it.

  • You kids and your crazy internets.
    By the way, I tried loading these goddamned comments 5 times to-day. Finally got through.

    AnywaySSSSSSS (don't you hate when people put that "S" on the end?)...maybe it was a couple of schmucks from FAU out on a scavenger hunt.


    It'd be even better if they actually layed the doormat in front of their door, for you to find--the edjits.

  • OMG! That is really horrible. That kind of crap really upsets me for some reason, I don't know why. It's just a basic human understanding that we should not steal from each other. Oh wait... no one else thinks that? I just don't understand people.

    You can have my new cute flowery doormat from Target. I know H would be soooo happy if you took it. heehee! :)

  • Thanks Robyn, I had a good Valentines, I hope you did as well! XOXOX to PT and ROBYN.

  • Sorry about the doormat. People who steal suck. My friend's bike got stolen. There was a sticker on it that said "stealing bikes is bad karma." Some people are just asking for karma to bite them in the ass...
