to the person who stole the cd's from my car

dear sir/madam/crazy,

i realise i probably shouldn't have left the windows down but you know it's hot as fuck here and just because the windows are down doesn't mean you can take people's stuff. and here's what i dont get. there were two boxes. why did you steal only one? is red your favourite colour?

look i get that maybe you were curious. maybe you figured we might have similar taste in music. but once you discovered that most of the cds were in languages completely alien to you why did you still hold on to them? and if you happened to enjoy the music why didnt you leave me a note saying "thank you, because of you i have now discovered this new wonderful genre of music and i'd now like to return the box of cds i STOLE from your car in exchange for other ones you might possibly have" i wouldve been delighted to share them with you. but no you kept them or even worse you threw them away!

they're irreplaceable those cds. okay they're not irreplacable but it would be very VERY inconvenient for me to find them all over again. there were some i had ordered online that took months to arrive. there were some i had to beg the guy at my local indian store to find and ship for me. there were some that my daddy mailed to me. there were some i had bought on my last trip home. the kind man on commercial street had to call all his friends/dealers to locate certain cds for me.

look, you can still return them. my car's always parked in the same spot. please, give it back. my music means a lot to me. plus it's the holiday season. the time of giving. maybe this can be your present to me.

p.s would it help if i left my windows down again? ever since you stole my cds i have been forced to roll up my windows and lock my door but i can leave it open for you if you want. okay? okay.

@noella: they stole only one case. i have the other case of cds so i'll survive. i think.
and what makes u think it was a he?

@tgfi: awwwwww. okay then. who wants to send me the first abhijeet pohankar cd? i even have a story that goes with it. we were at planet m on brigade road, we as in all my friends from college. anyway the store had just opened and we had bunked class to go attend the ribbon cutting ceremony or something. we did that a lot. we were very fascinated with the celebrity hand prints on the wall and i remember hearing the most beautiful song and miki and i were like omg who is that so i made her go ask the guy and thats how i discovered abhijeet pohankar. sob.

@la vida loca: illa ree. they didnt leave a note. im saying that they should have.

sympathies and all. touched by your story. sorry i neva heard of the guy tho.

ashish said...

Bad, very bad. but how can you say for sure that the language was total alien to that thief?

Bombay Addict said...

oh this is so so frustrating. I can sympathise. I had a thief steal just the panel of my car deck. Can you beat that? He leaves the deck behind for me, which instantly become useless because, well how am I gonna replace just the panel?. And guess how he stole the panel? By smashing my window. Yep, I have a smashed window to replace, an deck to replace and one useless deck to sell to the raddi-wala who gave me some Rs250 for it.

And LOCK Your car fool. Which self respecting Indian doesn't? Especially after seeing 945 movies where burglars open car, turn on ignition and drive away!

You should have plenty on those CDs~~ do you even have a list or something of all the songs on those now-in-the-dustbin-cds!?

Maybe I can help getting you a few of them if not all;
