Wow, that pinpoint level of accuracy???

And I used to resent my iPhone as "husband tracking device".


Good thing I don’t have a wandering eye. Her last career involved wearing combat boots and a rifle. I’ll leave it there. [emoticon].

If you are, we would have read already about you already in the headline being hit by Exocet missile launched using her Tesla tracking apps.[emoticon]

My brother died stealing cooper from high tension lines to pay for his drug habit. He started taking the folks beer at around age 9-10, then coke, and then crack. He joined AA beat alcoholism and coke, but could not over come crack.

My family fought a war that lasted about 20 years supporting him, sending him to schools, doctors, visiting him in jails, and giving him places to live.

He served in the Navy, was a journey man plumber, owned a drain cleaning business, was an incredibly hard worker, but also had a gene or propensity to alter his mind. I can assure you he, and my family especially my father and the world would have be better off if he could have cured his addiction. Many people have similar stories and it hurts just a little that some feel they were not worth saving. He inherited the alcoholism gene (runs in the family) through no fault of his own.

Sorry for your loss. I’m going back to amend my less than sensitive comment. You are right. Many in those positions suffer from addiction.

Sorry to welcome you to the converter-stolen party. My repair was $2k for the mechanic-recommended Ford OEM replacement. Due to the theft rate, took about three weeks to receive the replacement part. Best of luck with your repair!

Have you contacted your insurance company and if so, what did they say?
