A Night Impounded
Well, I was pulled over by the police on December 12th. Apparently my insurance bills were not paid as I had thought they were by my loving girlfriend.
Just before I was left on the sidewalk to watch my car go away, I thought about bringing my Leatherman. I had a 40 mile walk back to Portsmouth, NH and thought I might need a survival tool. Instead, I placed the tool in my center console, which has no lock. It’s a Hyundai – what do you expect?
No one was at the location which was in the middle of the city in a secluded run down area when I picked up the car the following day at 5PM. There was a gate that was locked, but everything around the gate was wide open. To top it off my car had been left unlocked.
The Leatherman was gone. I did not realize this until I was home. I got a bucket and unloaded everything form the car. Everything. It wasn't there. I even stripped the house looking for it. No where. It was a Super Tool 200 with a leather case, gift from my father who has since passed on. Maybe the person, who thought they needed it more than I, will cut himself…badly.
An upgrade to our classic Super Tool, this time we were trying something new with handle-side locks.
