So Many Reasons

There are so many reasons why I love living in Mexico. Here is reason #732:









This is what happens when you leave your car in the guarded municipal lot downtown. When I left the car there, I had nice, bright silver letters that spelled POINTER. I returned an hour later to discover that somebody had pried them off.



It's such a great feeling knowing that you paid to have your car guarded and kept safe while you were away.

You'll have to keep your eyes open for someone wearing some "bling" that spells out Pointer. I can't think of any other use for it! ha ha ha

I shouldn't laugh at other's misery, but that's too funny! :):(
And I'm wondering where POINTER landed!

OK so the person that stole the lettering will sell them for how much money? FIRE THE GUARD! or maybe he is the thief?

They didn't have time to finish! You could have been gone longer and been gifted with a red car body without that crass brand recognition stuff. Who makes Pointers anyway? :)

Count your blessings! Had it been in Los Angeles, the car would be gone.

Sorry, it really is irritating when these things happen.

I guess the upside is you still have a hood.

And -- who steals letters? Did you happen to see three beautiful women named Anita, June, and Ruth?

Ugh, serious UGH. What was the "point" in stealing that? Is there a big market for those letters?

Freaking kids, bah, what's the matter with kids today??

I never knew there was a guarded municipal lot downtown...not that I've ever had a car to worry about on Isla! Sorry about the car.
