Again we all got killed at work this week, leaving in the sunrise and working until the wee hours for some endless pitches, but also interesting deal driven stuff, valuation and some board meetings. This weekend was supposed to be a sweet one given the Queens Jubilee and the resulting “holiday” following, a great way of shortening a week on both ends.
In addition I had some friends over from Switzerland (crazy bunch of energy traders) so it was time to hit the town hard and go wild to blow off some steem. Come Thursday however I realized that I might have to work the whole weekend given a fairness opinion, lovin it! In addition I cant seem to get to finish some other urgent piece of work so I am not in the best mood as Friday approaches.
Its super early and I am actually arriving at my apartment at around 8pm. As soon as I enter my living room I realize that something is off as one of the paintings is laying on the floor (gladly no Picassos in the place)..I look on the table and my laptop isn’t there either…as I look into my room the Ipad is gone as well. And then I realize that I got robbed…. A lot of other things are gone too, watches, pens, cash, jewelry etc. The TV is still there and so are some more things that you would suspect to be stolen.
Please realize that my apartment is on the fourth floor, and even though the windows are wide open it’s a bit of a stretch to come in through there…While my roommate almost starts crying the police and forensics arrive (yes the whole thing must have cost more than the stuff that was stolen) and suggest somebody climbed through the window, but they can’t find any fingerprints etc. Needless to say I do not have any insurance so there is not much I can do at the moment (technically I now have an excuse why I cannot work from home)..The police dropped by twice more to further question us but needless to say nothing will ever come out of this.
I now realize that all my photos from the past 5 years, a script for a book I was writing on, music etc is gone and I will never see it again, a bit of a bummer I must say.
Do any of you insurance for these kind of things and what should I do the next time around and what should I have done to prevent this?
