Tales From The Night Shift: The Car Park Thieves

The human nervous system is a funny thing. Last night (4 AM-ish), as occasionally happens, some guys turned up in my hotel car park to break into vehicles and steal their contents.
My instant reaction is always one of sheer excitement, that 'the games afoot, Watson!' kick. I opened the door loudly and stepped out with my best 'tennis balls under the armpits' tough guy pose and stared at them. As always they froze (one of them ducking and hiding) and then returned to their van. 
The best bit is when they have no option but to drive right by me and I smile and look into their window and they try to hide their faces. Then I take down their number and they know it.

But after, once they've scarpered... I jump at every small sound outside, nervous as heck. 
Go figure.


  1. THat's the reason why i prefer Gatwick Parking in this regard!

  4. robbery and stealing cases have become quite common now a days. as mentioned above the way thieves entered into the hotel car parking area and stealing of the contents is quite sad. UK Airport Parking deals

  5. That is something a note of mere sarcasm . Theft at car parking is widely common now a days . This tragedy gives me gives the sanity to choose for meet and greet parking Gatwick
