Well, no, if you can’t understand why my original post made sense, then that isn’t my fault.
We’re just going to have to agree to disagree.
No, that suggests that there is something subjective about the debate. There isn’t. Any reasonable person would have interpreted this:
“Leaving your phone in the car is just asking to have your car burgled.”
“Leaving your phone in the car will increase the chances of your car being burgled.”
If you DIDN’T mean that, you most certainly should not have used such a misleading turn of phrase. If you DID mean it, the only way this makes sense is if a thief knows that the phone has been left in the car. Unless you leave the phone in plain view, this clearly isn’t going to be the case.
Okay, let’s put it this way since it seems to be a difficult concept for you.
If you have no valuables in your car, can anything of value be taken? No?
So if you leave your phone in your car, is that exposing yourself to the possibility that it can be taken? Yes?
So you should not leave stuff of value in your car? Yes?
TL;DR: We will agree to disagree.
