Dallas is not my favorite city this week

So, as I said in my last post, we were burglarized. The person in the next unit to our storage unit cut a hole in the wall and took over $40k worth of stuff. Most of it was my sister and her family's  clothes and furniture. It 's a long sad story made worse by the absolute inept way the Dallas police have handled the entire affair.

I have been trying to get a copy of the police report for over a week. The least amount of time I was on the phone, on hold was 25 minutes. Today it was over 35.  I called the detective three times with no call back and I called his sergeant with no help. Finally, finally I got in touch with the detective. He didn't have a clue. I told him I needed to make sure the report was in my name for the insurance. It  is in my sisters name so I asked him if he could correct it. He told me to go downtown to the main police station records and get a copy and see if they could help me. I asked if he could just do an addendum or some kind of update. He told me "if they can't help you downtown, call me back" Trying not to scream at him,  I politely asked him again if he could fix it. His response, "if they can't help you downtown, come to our office and we will re-do the report".

I can't even....

This is going to involve time off of work and my patience being shredded. Wish me luck, I am going in!  If you me on the news please start a Crowd funding account for my bail.
