212: Being Too Nice

Busted windscreen

Busted windscreen

We just discovered that the windscreen on the car has been hit, a really gook lick, with some object that broke it into a bunch of cracked pieces. It’s still there, it’s just not in one piece any more. Next month’s money, which was supposed to go into savings, now won’t be. It will be going into a new windscreen.

We stopped off at the police to report this, the second vandalization of the car in a month. The first time, they broke the taillight into tiny little pieces. While we were there, we also reported the lady who stole over a thousand US dollar’s worth of my jewelry, while she was in our house, working as a housekeeper. Right. Well. The police acted surprised that we had not automatically known that this woman was a criminal when she was hired. Right. It’s not like they wear a sign around their neck, dude. Right. *sigh* That’s what happens when you are too nice, and it is also part of learning, especially in a new country. Right.

Still, I have a clear conscience. I was doing the right thing, and it is between God and her that she did not. God gets even WWWAAAYYYyyyy better than I do, trust me. I have watched Him do it. I trust that it will all work out in the end.
