As many of you know, I’m a part owner in a beauty and barber college.
Last night, someone broke in. I think. I’m not sure the details yet as I’m being denied information. From who? Why, my family, the in-laws, who are the other owners. Why? Because that’s how they operate. Don’t even get me started.
I was scheduled to do some database work and some other work on the computerized testing system. I’ll then be able to see the damage for myself. The only thing they are really telling me now is that the doors are messed up, which is telling me someone probably hopped the curb and plowed through the doors with their car. I’m hoping that’s the case and it wasn’t an intentional thing. If it was this, then the funny part is that it has happened before, like 8 years ago. Due to the type of damage I don’t feel this it your typical run of the mill “crime of opportunity” done by a low-income person. As there is a laundromat and a Little Ceasars next door, and an AutoZone around the corner, I’m actually leaning towards some idiot for Little Ceasars forgetting to put their car in park and then running into Little Ceasars to get a pizza real fast. What is somewhat comforting is that it appears nearly do other damage was done. The shopping center this shop is located in is patrolled by armed security. While I don’t know or trust that security, I would hope that they never have need to draw their sidearm. At the same time, because this is in a crappy area. there is crime all over the place, which is most likely why the security is armed.
Anyhow, once I am allowed to see the damages, I have to find $1000 to pay the insurance deductible. I think it’s now time to see if we can afford an alarm system with cameras, although that’s doubtful since we can’t even come up with the $1000 deductible.
Please, I’m not asking for any help financially, nor do I want anything from you guys and girls. That is, UNLESS you want low price hair cuts performed by our students so they have people to practice on. I’m mostly giving notice here to let you guys know that I may be going away for a bit. I really won’t know more for a while.
If I drop out for a while, no need to worry. If anyone NEEDS to contact me, my phone number is in my signature and if you can’t find it there, you can hit my website and get it from there as it is on every single page. Even if I drop out, I’ll still be getting PM notices via email, to which I will try to respond quickly.
