This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Audacious Audi theft!
At the gym where I worked, an Audi-driving member was followed into the changing rooms from the car park.

He'd parked and locked up as usual and only vaguely noticed the large van that rolled up right behind him.

As he flashed his card at the gym entrance, the bloke following him was seen by staff to vault the barrier and walk, strangely unchallenged, into the locker room. Apparently people thought he was a member who'd popped outside for a fag or something.

He then apparently noted which locker the Audi driver used, waited in the bogs until the coast was clear, cut the padlock off and stole the car keys.

A few minutes later he was back outside, unlocking and driving away his prize, followed by his accomplice in the van.

The driver didn't know he'd been robbed until after his workout, by which time the thieves were miles away.

I had to deal with the driver when he found his locker open and just his keys gone, with his wallet, phone and other goodies left untouched. It was obvious that the car was the target but he still had to get his house locks changed just in case.

He was very upset indeed, especially as the gym's only CCTV camera was trained on the till to deter staff from pilfering!

He was lucky
They were professionals and just stole his car. Most blokes keep priceless photos in the wallet and other irreplaceable items. At least his car would have been covered on his insurance.

Even better, as it was a company car
presumably the company insurance would cover everything.

So yup, he was really lucky to keep his personal clobber too.
