Yesterday evening, I left the office and walked downstairs to get in my car to leave. That's when things got interesting...
I walked up to my car and hit the button on my keychain to open the (locked) trunk. I open the trunk and am about to put all my stuff in the trunk when I notice something very odd. Inside my trunk I always have three things. The first thing is a large, fairly expensive amplifier bolted to the back seat. Connected to this amplifier is a 12" subwoofer inside a box connected by speaker cable. The third thing is a bag containing various car-related tools (small air pump, jumper cables etc.) However, today, there were some additional items in my trunk - items that I did NOT put there. And these were items in a closed, locked trunk! What did I discover?
On top of the speaker box was two items. An empty, styrofoam cup with a lid on it. (Clearly a piece of garbage.) This cup was intentionally placed on top of the speaker box. Next to the cup on top of the speaker box was a large rock. (probably around a 5-10 pound rock. This rock looked to be a piece of one of those parking space 'bumpers'. (We have a bunch of broken ones in our parking lot). The third thing, was yet another one of those big broken parking lot bumper rocks placed next to the speaker box. Nothing was missing from the trunk. Just several items added to it.
My best guess as to how these items appeared in my trunk is that when I got back from my lunch break, I must have bumped the button on my keychain that opens the trunk without realizing it. The reason I think it must have happened after lunch is because had it happened before lunch, that empty styrofoam cup would have fallen off the speaker box the first time the car moved. Clearly someone noticed my open trunk and put those items in there as a message to me that I had left the trunk open. Then, once they'd left their 'message', they closed the trunk (which locks it). I would guess this was one of my coworkers who did this. I don't know who it was though.
Whomever you are thanks for closing that trunk! I wouldn't want to get my car broken into. Our office isn't in the best neighborhood.
