1. I figured out what is missing from my car, and thus why my window was broken.
I have an old canvas bag that I take to work. I keep my stethoscope (11 years old and warped), various pens, notes from education meetings etc in it. I usually just leave it in the car. It is somewhat germy since it sits around at work, and I don't like the kids taking things out of it. Anyway, it is gone. The derelict is probably sitting somewhere learning about continuous renal replacement therapy. Or else he is employing my stethoscope as a window breaking device.
I am actually kind of mad now. Those are the stages right? I am through denial, now on to anger.
2. There is a metal mail box that hangs on the wall by the elevators at work. It claims to be an official post office box for outgoing mail. But it seems sketchy to me. Everytime I am tempted to put something into it, I remember that movie where the guy puts all those letters into the mail box that never gets emptied. What is the name of that movie? Oh yeah, "A Beautiful Mind". Anyway, this morning I actually visualized the box being emptied. I now feel free to use it without concern. The only probably is, the guy emptying it appeared to be a security guard and I didn't see an offical postmaster name badge... hmmm...if you don't get a thankyou note, please know that it was written...a hospital security guard just stole it...
