Kicking me while I'm down!!!

“Ooooooooooooooooooh look...Mikey's getting out of the hole that we dug for him...WHACK!! (With a shovel on the noggin) WHACK! WHACKITY WHACK! …..WHACK (one last one for the ‘make sure you kick him while he’s down’ group)!”

“There! Take that!!”

“Climb out of that hole now...beeeeeoootch!”

Such is my thoughts as I wake up after finding out my truck got stolen (again) last night. I was kinda looking forward to working today too. Well…that got shot right out of the water. Sitting at the computer right now, waiting to hear back from the insurance company.

Bad jujus, karma, luck, call it what you want. That’s all it is. Mix one 2003 Dodge Ram pickup with nice and shiny 20 inch rims that sell for 400-800 dollars apiece on the black market with an easy-access-to-the-freeway neighborhood and you have the makings of a truck thief’s dream!

If I can get on the freeway from my parent’s house in less than a minute without even trying, imagine how long it takes for someone who is driving like they stole it.

I think I should just chalk this up as just one more subtle reminder that the Ulrich Family and vehicles do not get along with each other. However, that’s an entirely different post that I could make in the future. I could actually write an essay on why members of the Ulrich Family should not own vehicles…hmmmm…maybe I will.


Ok…I feel a little better…a little.


  1. Yup, looks like the natives are getting restless.

    That sucks! It's the darn economy we all are dealing with and it's going to get much worse before it gets better.

    Keep your chin up, Mikey, there's a lot of good people that care about you and want to see you happy.

    Take good care of yourself.


  2. Thanks Sheryl!

    I am humbled each day by the amount of love and caring I receive from my friends. There are some days (most days actually) where I wonder what I ever did to deserve it.

    As far as the truck is concerned...tis frustrating is all. Two steps forward...three steps back.

  3. That's odd. You seem to send out good karma, yet look what you're getting back. Have you read The Secret?

    I feel bad for you Mikey. I would have driven you to work. Let me know if you need anything.

    BTW... drive a beater next time.

  4. You did nothing Mikey, it's the "law of attraction" at work. Just as "The Nut House" suggested, it's all in "The Secret."

    I actually have the audio version in my car right now that I've listened to twice and need to return to the library (I think today).

    Here is the trailer to the movie version
    Although, the book and audio are more detailed than the movie.

  5. Ask St. Anthony of Padua to bring your "lost" truck back - and then let us know what happens...

  6. Dude... did they steal your computer too? lol
