Dude, that's MY car!!!

So I've always heard that Honda Accords are consistently one of the most popular cars to steal. I don't know if that is true or not, but after last weekend I am inclined to say that it is.

Last Saturday morning I was returning some rental camera equipment to Glazers Camera in Seattle. It was 11:20, so there was no line--I was in and out in about 3 minutes. When I got back to my car, I found a guy trying to break into my car (where I had ALL of my camera gear)! I politely asked him what he was doing (OK, I'll admit that I wasn't very polite--but he started it!) He said "Oh you got here just in time, I was going to steal the whole thing!" Craziness! He took off pretty quickly once I started flexing my biceps though. ;)

The moral of the story? If you have something in your car that is worth more than your car, it better be insured! Normally I would suggest keeping your valuables with you at all times, but if you're built like I am (I've got a pretty cool, hyper-active metabolism look going on)--then that may not be much of a theft deterrent. In any case, insurance is a good idea no matter what kind of business you are running. You may never have to use it, but you certainly don't want to get caught without it!

Thankfully, I have insurance...and I was lucky this time. All it would have taken was a line inside Glazers Camera, and I would have been riding the bus home!
