How do you just stop looking for your car with $50k worth of tools in it?

Insurance company probably paid the claim. (Or that part was bullshiat because I have trouble imagining $50,000 worth of power tools fitting in the trunk of a car.)

There are car locator apps for your phone. It has saved me a few times when I was in unfamiliar cities with streets that weren't clearly marked.

Well walk through a home depot one day and get back to me. Those ford ecnonoline vans you see every day? Some of those are worth more than you would think.

I rent cars a lot for Navy travel in many different cities/countries and I've lost count of how many times I've walked out to the parking lot and forgotten just what the hell I rented.

I just walk around the lot, pushing the Panic button on the remote until something beeps....

In America, the car would have 200 parking tickets on it and still not be towed.

German is a funny language.

But not nearly as funny as Dutch.

The article said tools in the trunk. Where did it say van? I have thousands of dollars worth of tools. They would not fit in a trunk.

Alcohol aside, I can relate.

Four years ago, I got a panic call from my ex. Her hubby had dropped our granddaughter off at school at her downtown school (it was in a previously office building in Des Moines) and could not remember where he had parked the car. It was January and about -2°F. He had been wandering about, trying to find it for half an hour before he called my ex. I wasn't working that day, so I drove downtown and found him and we both went looking.

After an hour out in the cold and no luck, we went back to the school, pulled my granddaughter out of class and asked her what she remembered. Eight years old, but she knew enough to key us into the right parking ramp, three blocks away, for us to find it. That was the first solid clue we had that my ex's hubby was in the first stages of early onset dementia. It only got worse from there.

I used to make jokes about "parking lot Altzheimers," but no more.

Mike is a great guy. He's always been good with my kids and grandkids, but he's slowing fading away. He doesn't drive any more. He had to take early retirement at 54 from his job of 30+ years. It's heartbreaking to watch, both for him and my ex, so I tend to cut guys like the one in this article a bit more slack than most people.

Probably was mechanics tools. You should check out the prices of and and pneumatic power tools and Snapon tools. While I think 50 grand is pushing it it is possible.

In America police use license plate readers to check up on parked cars. They're checking for revenue violations, though, not lost and stolen property. If your car owes parking tickets they'll call for a tow truck or a boot.

I wonder if there are $50,000 worth of parking tickets on the windshield?

All Home Depot tools combined aren't worth $50k.
