After six years in this supposedly dangerous city, I am finally a victim of street crime.

This morning I went to retrieve something from my car. I noticed right away that my license plate was missing.

Oh crap, I thought, I'm gonna have to spend the rest of the day at the license bureau.

Then I noticed the plate sitting nearby. The tags were even still attached.

Huh, I thought, they wanted my cheap plastic plate holder thing?

But then I spotted it sitting nearby as well.

So what did they take? The screws that held the plate and the plate holder.

"You got screwed!" Allie says.

Should I call the cops?

I wonder if you are the first person in KC to ever have something stolen off a license plate that wasn't a tag. I am completely amazed they didn't steal your tags! Too funny.

that's so weird.

i wish i could say that i was just out there playing some kind of "i wonder how long it would take me to take off this license plate" joke. but no, i have other ambitions, namely against a certain overambitious nightlight.

hope you didn't drive over the screws.
