MEAN PEOPLE SUCK!


Since I arrived at the post on Friday at 4:29 and 30 seconds, the grumpy man at the door wouln't let me in to mail my packages (contest prizes for my blog).  The post office closes at 4:30-Come ON!

So, the prizes were left in my car on the passenger seat.  When I got in my car to go to the post today-THE PRIZES WERE GONE along with my GPS, HALF OF MY CD'S and other things.  Thankfully my purse was in the house.  Some stupid, mean person broke into my car. 

MEAN PEOPLE SUCK!!!

So, I discarded the addresses of the winners when I packaged them and I need for the winners to send them again.  It may take a while for me to get to a bookstore and repurchase the books.  I am looking for:
1. The winner of Evermore
2. Monica a Bibliophillic
3. Mari Mancusi swag winner. 
If you could please resend your addies to my email.  zenfoxflowerATyahooDOTcom

My brain is super stressed right now so if I am forgetting one, please email me.  The winners of Seven, Gate House and Fallen are coming from the publisher (thankfully)

Oh, Mitz, the arc is gone and I can't replace it, sorry. 

Thus ends my rant.  I am going to try to paste on a happy face, even though me and my horrible sense of direction miss my GPS already.  (sniffle)

OMG...that's horrible! I'm really sorry that happened to you Elie!

I agree with you 100%...mean people suck. Nothing like having your car broken into during the holidays to spread the holiday cheer...jerks!

Let's all track him (or her) down and kick him (or her)!

Angela said...

Wow, that really does suck. I just don't understand why people do this to each other.

Justine said...

:O oh my! That is terrible! I'm so sorry! Wow, you lost so many stuff. I can't believe it's almost Christmas and this happened.

Don't worry. I shall put a curse on the mean pplz who stole your thingz. Tsk tsk.

~Jennifer~ said...

That's s awful! Honestly, stealing sucks, but stealing at Christmas-time is unthinkable. I'm so sorry.

Lea said...

I don't get how people can make stealing all right with themselves, that's horrible. I'm so sorry that happened to you,

Elie said...

Thanks guys, I am feeling better now-negativity causes wrinkles-right? I am just going to tell myself that whoever took it needs it more than I do and they are going to sell it to buy their kids Christmas presents.

And if the thief is really just a mean person, well... think a CURSE is a great idea.

Oh I'm so sorry for you... I would be mad if it happened to me (oh wait, it DID !). Stealing is so unfair...

Crazy-for-Books said...

Oh my gosh, that's AWFUL!!! I'm so sorry that happened to you!! Mean people DO suck!!!!!

Bethie said...

That is so horrible! The shame of it is that crooks look for people to prey on during the holiday season. They were probably staked out watching you leave your car. I always like to believe that what goes aroung comes around. Makes me feel a little better when dealing with lousy people.

titania86 said...

That really sucks! I'm so sorry that happened to you. People who steal really suck. :(

Arya said...

That totally sucks! I'm sorry about that. I know what it feels like.

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

OH MY GOD, that's horrible!! Whew, I'm SO glad for you that your purse was at home. But still, I bet some mean guy is abusing those books right now, arrgh. I can only imagine how I'd feel in your situation, so sending luck your way and hope you get something nice during the holidays!

Donna [F.D. Ramblings] said...

That's just horrible! So sorry to see this happen to you. At least most of it could be replaced, sad about the ARC for Mitz though.

The plus side your okay!!

I hope your holiday picks up for the better.

.:SMILE:.

Andrea said...

You are so right that mean people suck. Stealing from others is one of the worst things mean people do.

SciFiGuy said...

We can only hope that the ghosts of Christmas will haunt whoever it is. Their karma will catch up with them eventually.

StephTheBookworm said...

Ugh, I am so sorry to hear that Elie. My house was broken into a couple of years ago and my mom and I had our purses stolen. It sucks. I hope you are able to replace some of your stolen things. :(

Misty said...

Oh my god, people DO suck!!! My best friend and I had an idea for Karma Elephants that crush people's heads when they deserve it -- we're still working out the details, but when we do, I'll send one you're way...

I'm about all of that. I hate mean people too. However, karma is a bitch and I believe that what goes around, comes around....Stacy

Donna said...

Ick. What a shitty day. What is wrong with people? But I hope I can make you feel better! You have an award waiting! Come get!

hcmurdoch said...

I agree. What a totally sucky day for you! I hope you don't let it get you too down for the holidays!

Martha Lawson said...

Well, bless your heart! the same thing happened to us several months ago. Our car and truck got broken into, thankfully our dogs scared them away before they got anything. They did tear up the door locks on both vehicles. Expensive to fix!!
Hopefully, you can have a merry Christmas anyway..

heatherzilla said...

OMG! That is terrible.

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

Ugh! I've had stuff stolen before, but never that much! You poor thing! That's so awful! I think I would have locked myself in my room and cried with a half pint of Ben & Jerry's! I hope your holidays are better! You definitely deserve a super nice gift for Christmas!

P.S. Karma elephants? I like that idea...

Bunny B said...

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear that! I've had my purse stolen before and that sucked :(

Becky said...

Oh man, that's awful. I'm so sorry. Nice people rock, mean people totally suck!!!

booklover0226 said...

That really stinks; people are just rotten all around.

Like you said, it's good your purse was in the house and thank goodness you weren't hurt.

Take care,
Tracey D

brizmus said...

Ohmygoodness, that's just the most HORRIBLE thing ever! I can't believe someone stole all of your stuff! :-( You poor thing. I hope you're managing to stay positive.
Merry Christmas!!!!

Shalonda said...

I am so sorry to hear this! I'm so glad that you are safe and able to remain positive. Don't let the mean people ruin your day. You're awesome and deserve to have a very relaxing holiday.

Alyssa said...

Oh my. I'm so sorry! I had this happen to me last year. Such a horrible thing, and even more when it's so close to the holidays. Here's sending your lots of warm holiday wishes to make up for the bad feelings!

Alyssa Kirk @ Teens Read and Write said...

I'm so sorry that happened! People can be so incredibly horrible. Try to keep the holiday spirit! My dad always reminds me that what goes around comes around. Rest assured that creep will get what's coming to him/her.

And in the meantime you get all the warm thoughts, love and well wishes from us!

J. Kaye said...

I am so sorry - the Christmas spirit doesn't seem to be around as much any more.
