Taking Safety For Granted

I was running errands a few days ago when I realized I'd put my family in danger without realizing it. In my car was everything a person with bad intentions needed to get into my home - house keys, keycard to get into my condo compound and a letter addressed to a former tenant which I was going to drop off at the post box to return to sender. Someone could have broken into my car and drove to my home, calmly opened the door to take whatever they wanted! If the guards see my car driving in, they'll probably think it was PT or me without really looking. Scary thought!

Also, don't write your address in your car servicing booklet. I've also stopped placing my house keys in my car. too risky.

*guilty* thanks for the wakeup tip.its a shame that we have to live in defense at all times in this environment.cant even step outside of a civil building without looking all around for any suspicious activity until ur safely in ur motor vehicle driving away, and even then! u gotta worry about road robbers and freaks! aiya!wonder if walking around while swinging sharp metal objects madly and screaming "satan" will scare the bejesus enough outta them... =P

You just gave ideas to some bad guys out there with this post.

I don't think so. Whatever we can think of is probably thought of by the bad guys already.

I hope more people who read this blog will learn to take precautions.

Hi there Min, this is my first visit to your blog. I came here thru the link in NIAMAH. The first thing that caught my attention was your post 'Taking Things For Granted'.

How, true! Sometimes I do that too. *shudders* When you put it that way, it's really scary, isn't it? Anyone can simply break in to our house and loot all of our things. I'll be more careful in the future.

One more thing, my neighbour's house was broken in a week ago, and these days, I cant seem to sleep well if i'm alone at home.
( yea, I'm one of those people who lets her imagination runs wild, and given chance, my thoughts probably will be able to turn ino a blockbuster horror and thriller flick, LOL)

Anyway, back to my neighbour. Their house was broken in, and i cant even inform them of the incident. Why? Because they dun even wanna say hi to me as neighbour, what more giving phone number to me just in case anything happened to their house. They have this 'buzz of, MYOB' written on their face. And they didn't find out about the break in until 4 days later, cuz they dun stay at the house often. Sad, isn't it? Their house was wiped clean! I think it's good to be abit friendly to neighbour. At least they can inform us if something untoward happens to your house.

I'm new to this blogging stuff, just started on 1st June 2008, so if you don't mind, you can visit mine and exchange ideas with me too.

Thanks for visiting, cleffairy.

It is unfortunate that we people are so wary about each other, even though neighbours. Maybe your neighbour had bad experience with kaypoh neighbours before?
