Spin Cycle--Straight and Narrow



This week's Spin cycle is Crime and Punishment. Not something I have a whole lot of experience with. At heart I'm a good girl and we live in Wyoming. Not the most crime ridden part of the country, as long as you don't count the underage drinking.

I will admit to doing some of that underage drinking back in the day, but I never tried to go out on a fake ID. I didn't look old enough to be my actual age, let alone older. It would have never worked. We just had friends who were old enough to drink and willing to buy for us.

I have been on the receiving end of crimes. Once our car was robbed. I lost a very nice Columbia jacket, but that was most likely a cold drunk walking home from the bar who rifled through the car, which was parked in our driveway. I was out a $300 coat and that was that. I learned after that to leave nothing in the vehicle--and to make sure it was locked. I had thought it was, but evidently not.

The other crime I was the "victim" of was just after Turbo was born. I got my credit card statement and there were charges from Paris on it. From a lingerie shop no less. Since I had just had a baby and was most definitely not lingerie ready and had most definitely not been out of the country, those charges were not mine. They got it straightened out quickly.

Other than that, I have tread the straight and narrow. The police are nice people, but I try, on general principle, to avoid meeting them. My brother does enough of that for the family.

So what are your experiences with crime and punishment? Spin it up and go link with Gretchen, she of the spin cycle magic.

I was such a chicken - I never got a fake ID, and did very little underage drinking (I'm apparently making up for that now, though...yikes).

My iPod was stolen out of my car on New Year's Eve a few years ago. I'm a faithful door-locker, so it figures the one night I don't, I'm the victim of a "crime"!! Thankfully, my friends purses and cameras were also in the car and were not touched...judt the iPod. Random.
