I honestly think you’re the very first person I’ve met on the internet that is completely unfamiliar with the concept of Murphy’s Law. I don’t know what to think about that.
TL;DR: We’ll agree to disagree.
Yes. Murphy’s Law. You’re asking to get burglarized if you open yourself up to the possibility.
Really sir, I understand. You’re unfamiliar with the concept and that’s perfectly okay. It’s even okay to get upset when someone points out you gave bad advice. It happens. :)
TL;DR: Don’t leave your valuables in the car. We will agree to disagree.
If it were true that anything that could go wrong, would go wrong, you would have your car broken into regardless of what is inside it. You could use identical logic to justify not leaving a nickel in the glove box of your car, and admonish earnestly anybody who did so. This would be very stupid reasoning indeed, and mark you out as a jabbering, mungo-headed simpleton.
I admire your spirit, Claire, and your ego, but your analytical skills are not strong.
