You may or may not have seen this already...  
..depending on whether we're friends on facebook or not - but this is what happened to my car, some time on Monday, while parked at the bus station.

Mongrel. I'm not sure if it's worth getting the repairs covered by insurance, or whether I'm better off just paying for it myself. Ah well, I should just feel very grateful that I can cover the cost if need be.

A few people have expressed the hope that karma will bite the offender, hard. I rather think that it already has; what sort of life must you have, to be so full of anger frustration and envy that you would lash out with petty, pointless vandalism like this?

I'm sorry you're having to deal with this crap. *hugs you*

I don't understand senseless destruction of any kind but I'm inclined to agree with you about what sort of life they must have.

Aw, thanks... it's pretty bloody upsetting, I'll tell you that for free.

I do despair of humanity for the most part. Permission to hug you hard?

Awww, the doorhandles and the scratch make it look like a sad face.

I just can't imagine the state of mind that gives people satisfaction to do things like that. UNLESS they work for a car refinishing shop and are making customers...

You're right, it DOES look like a sad face. See, even my car is upset about the damage.

That happened to me once (on my own parking spot, when I was renting an appt.

From the height of the scratches, I presumed it was either a kid, or a bike. Or a kid on a bike...

It's infuriating. Luckily my insurer does not penalize one for vandalism ;-/

Hope yours is as accommodating too!

Very lucky re your insurer. If I claim this, I'll have to pay an excess of $500 and my premiums will go up in future years. I'm looking into the cost of fixing to decide if it's worth claiming or not.

:-(


The pleasure of having insurances : good only if you don't need to make a claim.

And I worked for an insurance company for 35 years...

One positive thing though : they're supporting my retirement :-/

Aww, that's absolutely rotten, and I am very sorry! And cars can be such personal items, too, so that can make it so much worse.

I am very impressed by your response and karma-thoughts though, and I think you are right.

Thank you for your kind thoughts. I guess I've reached the point where I can be philosophical about it; my knee-jerk anger has mostly bled away and I just feel sad that anyone could gain satisfaction from upsetting someone else like that.

Oh no, what a ratbag... a mongrel ratbag...

I second that. With swear words too... although as I mentioned above I've reached a state of calm about it now.
