You're the guy who wandered into our apartment complex, smashed the rear window of my wife's car and stole her Rickenbacker bass at 5 a.m. We know what time it was from the surveillance camera! Soon, your face is going to be all over OC and the Internet. Your impersonal act has a very personal consequence: That bass has traveled around the world with us, and it's her only one. You could return it. Dickhead.
