Do Not Want!

First, let me apologize to all whom I read -- I'm still not recovered from FKO and sundry busy-ness last weekend, so I'm at skip=400 or so -- and I'll be gone much of this weekend, so I'm going to get further behind, and might not comment on things I would otherwise.

My car is now 2 months and one day old. When she was just over 1 month old, I found a dent in the front. As near as I can figure, while parking, I pulled up too far and found a wooden stake obscured by a snow-drift that I misjudged the location of.

Today I left for some lunchtime appointments, and coming back from the last of them at about 1pm saw nothing wrong. But when I left work today at about 7pm I saw the white stripe across most of my front door and some of my back.

I think someone keyed my car today.

Oh wow! I am so sorry to hear that!

Thanks. Even though I know better I'm still trying to fill in the "why".

I know, right? You kind of want to know if it was just some idiot who thought it would be funny or has some sick amusement over messing up other people's new cars.

Yeah -- or someone who just did it absent-mindedly and won't even remember today, or someone who's poor and has a mad on for anyone driving new.

Given the local economy and which manufacturer produced the car, I can guess. Tiny, tiny, angry, stupid minds at work.

Well.... there is that. (Not even going to dig deeply into the fact that the Toy I test drove in '93 was made in California, when any number of the "domestic" vehicles were assembled in Mexico.)

Or maybe it was a bored, unsupervised kid.

Oh man. I feel so sorry for you and for the new broom.

Thanks. I guess I got spoled -- nobody took much notice of the last one.

Oh, honey, that sucks! I'm so bummed for you! Geez, don't you wish the car had a built-in defensive mechanism, like a skunk's, so that when provoked it would spray a nasty -- and long-lasting -- odor on the perpetrator?

You've got my condolences, Margaret.

Ok, the thought of that gave me my first good laugh since I noticed.

I like the way you think!

It's sad that 99.999% of humanity can be decent human beings and the remaining 0.001% can still ruin ones day. To say I'm sorry this happed doesn't begin to cover how annoyed I am at that miniscule, puerile minority.

Thanks. There's so much not-fun going on in the world, and this is so small and petty in comparison... but it was still not what I was hoping (or expecting) to see when I finally left work.

Sorry to hear about the keying. :( *hugs*
18th-Apr-2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks. See you at P-Con?

Well damn. Sorry to hear that.

Is it worth turning in to the insurance company?

Don't know. Car'll be at the dealer for "stuff" in the next couple of weeks -- I'll see what they say.
