Normally when I journey to St. Albans I have no fear about leaving my car outside my parents house. After all, I’ve driven all round the country and of all the places I’ve been I’ve always considered St. Albans to be one of the safest places to leave a car.
How shocked was I then to find that in the early evening on Saturday before I left for the cinema with Hannah but after it got dark, that some cretin had stolen the aerial from the roof of my car! I know it wasn’t vandalism as they had actually got a little spanner and purposefully unscrewed it, leaving the base intact.
Thankfully a replacement was easy to come by on eBay for a tenner or so (it’s being delivered later this week) but the fact that the item is available for such a price beggars belief as to why anyone would bother to steal one. I guess it’s the annoyance rather than anything else – I’ve gotten so used to driving with some radio station or other on in the background that doing so with just the traffic noise for company was a little strange to say the least.
