Grand Theft Mobile9:26 AM
You read the title right my dears. My blackberry got stolen yesterday just shortly after a lovely lunch and now I am actually boiling at the fact that someone stupid would just pick up something that is not his to begin with and just throw away the SIM card so they could use it. It is said that Karma is a female dog and I do pray to God for no good to come out of a stealer. Anyhoo, the thing that got my head into scratching vigorously was the following:
I figure out that my phone isn't where it's supposed to be, search for it and turn my desk and everything around me upside down to not find it. I give it a ring through someone else's phone and it RINGS and I still keep hoping that it's just misplaced somewhere. It gets cut after a few short rings. I then call again to find it switched off. Now Rummy turns red and pissed at the fact that the phone is actually stolen. Luckily the IMEI number, which is the serial number is saved in my files. So I head down to the police station reporting it and since I have my IMEI number then it's supposed to be a piece of cake no? Well, guess what? I was completely wrong at my assumptions.
The police after hearing out the incident say 'hatha ma she'3elna, hatha i5ti9a9 el idi3a2 el 3am'. You should have seen the look on my face when I heard that, it was a very very amusing expression to say the least :p . Apparently that's where the IMEI is of use and they can figure out who stole it and its location. Of course it was late to go to el idi3a2 yesterday so I had to wait till today morning. All fresh and cheerfully, I head towards the Seeb branch (I don't understand why I had to go there given that the phone got stolen in another wilayah). Heading over to the place, I got the response 'hatha ma sare8a, hatha ihmal'. If it was ihmal to begin with why would I come knocking on your door? WTF?! I mean seriously? So again I explained the story to them, well to another dude and they told me the thing I feared 'hatha ma she'3elna hatha i5ti9a9 el shur6a'
So now again I am heading back to the police station to file a friggin' report and I hope it's not going to be the whole 'hatha ma she'3elna' yet again.
