One of my biggest unfounded fears is someone breaking into my place and stealing my gaming crap. I know I would never get half of the merchandise I've collected back. On that point, I think it takes a for real scum-bag to steal someones personal goods. There are a great many moral lows man can reach, but stealing another mans personal belongings is something I REALLY detest and can't understand. There are a number of other immoral, illegal ways to go out and make money that does not directly hurt and violate another innocent human being. People can really suck alright.
I have nightmares about someone breaking in quite often, especially after the incident with crazy neighbour :/
I've told this story here before, but my sister actually had something stolen from her right from her room. She had invited some friends over. Atleast, she thought all of them were friends. One of them stole her mobile phone, mistaking it for a model that was actually worth something. (Note: they were all around 14 years old) In her case it all worked out. The guy was an idiot, so it wasn't hard to figure out he was the culprit. He had already caused some minor trouble in town and showed all the signs of going further down hill, so the police took the case quite seriously. Two months later my sis had her phone back. (And now, many years later, that guy takes it up the butt for cash at shady parties.)
Whem I was in Junior High, I had a friend steal $50 cash from me and spent the entire amount on Pokemon cards. >.<
Got my revenge though, as my step dad confronted the store owner where he bought the cards and my "friend" was no longer allowed in that store.
