Home not robbed

Just as a nice contrast to the common stories of theft in our neighborhood:
We left town for the coast this past weekend, departed Friday afternoon and returned Sunday night.
Upon returning home, we noticed that the sliding glass door on our deck was open. Not just ajar, but all the way open. Had thieves gutted our house and left the door open? Nope, it was me, my stupid mistake, forgetting to close and lock the door after my last trip to the car.
Nothing was taken.
This is particularly notable since the back of our house faces a somewhat public location (I won’t say where, in case I make this mistake again).
So the weekend passed and the only uninvited guests in our defenseless home were a couple of houseflies. Not all is bad in the Central District!
And yes, I will triple check the doors next time.

  1. I’ve left my garage door open for several hours a couple of times while I was gone, each time nothing has been touched. I’ve been very pleasantly surprised.

  2. Great news, glad to hear everything was ok. No visiting racoons even, wow, that’s very fortunate.
    I’d say those who only see doom and gloom or freakin here only read the CD News when they hear sirens.
    Tons of good and helpful news, reviews and information here daily.

  3. You’re a dumbass. Why would you even post this? You’re creating an unecessary air of discontent. If you don’t like The District, MOVE.
