I'm posting this here as well.

--------

My vehicle is down right now. I have to get it fix. I thank God for my good eyesight. I had a doctor's appointment today and I had to ride the bus to work. Well, the bus pass a block from my house. I was on the bus on my way to work, when I've noticed that my license plate was gone from my car. I was a block away from my house. Yes, I can see that good.

I ride with someone to work. When she dropped me off, sure enough my license plate wasn't on my car.

The Lord made it to where, the woman that had my license plate showed up as I was outside. It was my upstair neighbor's sister or cousin that had my license plate on her car.

I found it strange that this woman was backing up her car, instead of parking it straight like she use to. I was lead to go check behind her car and sure enough my license plate was on her car. This wasn't the first time that her car was backed up. I've noticed that the car was back up Friday as well.

The lady has been at her cousin or sister's house for about two weeks now. No telling how long she has been using my license plate. I should have known that something wasn't right with my license plate, when I've noticed that it wasn't straight on my car last week.

Her car didn't have a license plate on it, the first time that I have seen her car. I don't even recall seeing a temporary license plate in the back window, maybe because her window is a little dark and her car was full of clothes.

Let me say that I wasn't hot sauce, but I wasn't happy either. I was calm and firm.

The lady that rode with the car owner came down stairs. I've told her that I wanted my license plate off that car. She said that she didn't own the car. I told her to tell whomever own the car that they need to take my license plate off their car and that I was calling the cops.

The owner was told what I have said and she came downstairs and removed my license plate. She told me that she didn't know it was my license plate and that she gotten it from a guy. That a guy told her that he could get her a license plate. She should have known that something was wrong with that picture. Because the only place you can get legal license plate is from the motor vehicle department. If you get it from anywhere else, it's stolen.

She kept telling me that she has two children and that she went to the store to get her baby some milk.

I've asked her how come she didn't have a license plate for her car. She told me that she bought it from a guy.

I've told her that she will have to tell the cop, who gave her my license plate.

She pretended to be dumb again. Claiming that she didn't know that the license plate was mine and that the guy didn't live in the apartments that I live in and that all she knows he's a tall guy.

I had to school her about how things are done, in regards to getting a legal license plate.

The cop came and I had to school the woman again in the front of the man about how to get a legal license plate. I have told her that she should have known that my license plate wasn't hers.

In the front of the cop, the lady said that she had a tag on her car. I've asked her why didn't she go get her own license plate. She then told me that she had a license plate on her car and that the guy told her that he put her license plate back on her car.

The cop probably thought that I was about to wax the ground with that young woman.

In the front of him, she kept claiming that she didn't know and that she was from Alabama. As if Alabama doesn't follow the motor vehicle laws. I've gone to Alabama in 99 to spend a few days with a buddy of mine and I've gone with her and her family to get her papers and license plate for a car that she bought.

Come to find out, after the cop starting asking her questions. She's from Alabama, but has been living in a city that's 10 miles from my city, for three years.

I asked the cop if he can run my plate to make sure no tickets was on it. My plate came out clean. I have told the cop by his car that I wasn't going to press charges against her, because I didn't want to see her go to jail.

After I had the cop check my license plate to make sure no tickets were registered to my car, we've both walked back to my apartment. She was still sitting in the chair that she was in, when the cop arrived.

I've told her in the front of the cop that I wasn't going to press charges against her. I have already told the cop that by his car. I didn't want her to go to jail. She had two children. A two year old and a 9 month.

The cop told her that she's lucky that I didn't press charges against her, because she would have served some time.

She kept telling me that she was sorry. Even way before the cop came. I guess she thought that I was going to beat her up.

The cop asked her if her children had anywhere to stay. For a while, I thought he was going to take her children away from her. The woman looked at me. I didn't want that to happen. The cop went on to talk to her about the law and her vehicle. I left the cop with her outside and gone in my house.

But, I did hear him ask her who gave her the plate and then she said a guy she use to stay with.

I'm sorry my post in long, but I just want to warn you all about your vehicle and license plate.

Make sure you know your license plate. Take a picture of it. I live in an apartment, but just because someone lives in their own home, it doesn't mean that people will not steal your license plate or even switch license plate with you.

They can have tickets on their license plate or their tag could have expired and they see that you have a good license plate, they will take yours and if you don't know your license plate, you can be driving around with a license plate that's not even yours.

Also, examine your car at least twice a month. Take pictures of your car. Sometimes, you can have a crack in your window that wasn't there or even a broken light. I've noticed on a car of mine that one of my lights are broken and it wasn't broken for the 4 years that I had it. Well, April would make 4 years. It was recently broken and I don't know who did it, but my guess it's one of my neighbor's son. I've caught him standing on my car one day and his mother was sitting down outside not telling him anything, but when I've told him something she wanted to get offended.

I respect people and their property and I expect people to do the same thing.

Okay, I'm ending this long post.

Cindi (ourtrumpcard) | 381 comments So sorry you had to go thru all that! OMG, it sounds like the basis for a new story. I can just imagine ... late one evening, a detective comes to your door and tells you that someone saw your license plate at the scene of a murder. You explain what had previously happened to you and refer him to the cop that took your license plate theft report. Upon checking with his precinct, he finds that there never was a policeman who took your report . . . . .

Arch, I'm sorry you had to go through that, and don't think its funny at all, and it was very, very kind of you to consider her children and not press charges. But Cindi's post has me LMAO :o)

Cindi's post was funny.

But, if I would have pressed charges against the woman, she would have been leaving in the cop's car.

But did she learn a lesson? or will she be out there again taking someone else license plates?
hard to know when to be sympathetic or hard :)

I hope she learned her lesson. She was so inconsiderate. What if something awful happened, and the police came to take Arch to jail? Would the neighbor have spoken up, and said, "no officer, I did it." This is the stuff of court tv. I have great neighbors now, but those inconsiderate ones can be something else.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish What a nightmare!!! If you had reported the plates stolen and she had been out driving with her kid in the car? OMG... there ya go... some people are too stupid to be allowed to have cars. Or kids. Or use the drive thru at a fast food place... I was behind this woman the other day and she... ummm.... sorry, off topic.

Her car is parked right now in the front of my vehicle. If I don't see that vehicle again, when I get off work Monday, then she stole someone else's license plate. or her boyfriend let her use his license plate again.

She's only asking for trouble. The cop already know what kind of car she drives, if another person reports their license plate stolen and the cop catches her with that license plate, she's going to jail.

If you really want to know... I was at Panda Express, a drive thru Chinese food place here in SoCal. Great food, by the way.. so anyway, it's one of those places that has the order menu and a preview menu, right? So she sits forever at the preview menu, then pulls up to the order menu and sits there looking and looking... then she throws her car into reverse, almost hits me, so she can go back and look at the first menu!!! I honked my horn and she stopped really fast, then gets out of her car smiling. She apologizes and says that she needs to see this menu again in case she changes her mind! HELLO??? It's the same menu!!!!! Yeah, so anyway. I'm convinced there needs to be a special place on the drivers test for using drive thru ordering.

If she would have done something while I was at work. I would have evidence that it wasn't me, because not only would my timesheet shows that I was at work, my co-workers would have said that same thing.

Also, when they would run that license plate, it would show that it belongs to a different car. A car that's not drivable right now.

I wouldn't be going to jail for someone else. I would fight that in court and for sure, I would press charges against her and wouldn't care if her children are taken away from her. It would be clear that she doesn't care, because she keep doing stupid stuff to go to jail.


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish Arch, in all seriousness, I'm glad you weren't hurt! My gosh, if someone will do something like that and then realize you're calling the police, you could have been beaten or shot.

Thank GOD. He was watching over you, my friend.

--That's what I was thinking about. That lady could have been a serious criminal and pulled a gun or something. It's a scary world nowaways.

People are very stupid when it comes to driving a car. And people are getting ruder and ruder.

I saw the lady leave. She came back and left again. The woman is driving her car without a license plate on. She really wants to go to jail.

I've seen the lady on the road after church, driving her car. I don't understand how the cops haven't stopped her yet.

I pray for her sake that she doesn't hit anybody.


message 23: by Cindi (new)

Cindi (ourtrumpcard) | 381 comments So, she knows she's doing the wrong thing and probably has been getting away with it because no one wants to get those poor kids taken away from her . . . but think what they are learning from mom asa they grow up. Talk about a bad example!

Eventually, she will be caught.

Yes. She truly gave herself away, when she backed her car up, so my license plate wouldn't show.

SheLove2Read (sherrih95) I'm a 911 Dispatcher and I can tell you that unfortunately this kind of theft happens EVERY DAY. If you can get a screw on cover plate it makes it harder for thieves to steal the plate.

I see where people have license plate covers. Whenever I put my license plate back on my car, I will have to get one of those.

The woman shouldn't be stealing people's plate in the first place.

A license plate isn't worth going to jail over.
