So, anyhoo. Yesterday my ex husband came into town and picked up DD. He's staying for a few days and booked a room at the Comfort Suites. He drove DD by last night, I saw her come downstairs with a change of clothes and her laptop. She had homework to do on it. This morning, my ex put the laptop in the bottom of his suitcase and covered it with clothes. ( I know, how stupid ) He then drove DD to sLast month I made a big purchase for a 14 year old. I bought her a Macbook from Apple. It was $999 plus tax. We're an Apple family, I was tired of DD taking mine. I also wanted her to have a good computer for homework as our only non Apple computer is our desk top which is a piece of crap. chool and he went and walked on the beach. He came back at 12:30 in the afternoon and went to change clothes. The MacBook was gone. STUPID ex then goes downstairs and reports it to the manager. The manager says, "Sorry, there's nothing we can do about it and we're not responsible for loses." Ex leaves it at that. 3 hours LATER, my oldest DD calls to tell me the news. Ex called her and asked her to call me. I called DH ( who's in law enforcement ) and called the police. We all showed up at Comfort Suites. Filed a police report, DH and the other cop watched the video surveillance tape. Which of course didn't show the door to the room. Per the manager, the only person who should have had access to the room was the maid. And she "had her bag searched before she left". Of course I have no idea if this really happened as the manager never bothered to check the tapes until the police came. Tomorrow, DH and the cop will be meeting the maintenance man ( who had already gone home for the day ) to "pull the record" on the room lock. I guess they can check who opened the door for the day. Maybe. I've called my CC company ( haven't even gotten the bill for the computer yet ) and have no insurance coverage. I called my homeowners. It is covered. But, here in coastal SC, hurricane alley, my deductible is $3500. So I get nothing. Except to pay a bill next week on a computer that's already gone. Ex is now saying he's going to call his insurance company. He lives in Upstate NY and his deductible is far less. If he calls and says he was traveling with his child and her computer was stolen, will his insurance cover the laptop? I've got receipts ( in my name ) and will have a full police report. Is there anything else you would do. I'm just sick over this.
