I woke up this morning and headed out to my car. Noticed there was something sharp that I was sitting on. Turned out to be broken glass. Someone lobbed a large rock through my rear window. Due to the fact that it bent the frame holding the window in place, punctured the leather on the back seat, and scratched the paint, repairs come out to just under $3000. Luckily, insurance will cover most of that, but I can't get it replaced until next week and it will take a few days. Until then I have it covered with plastic and duct tape, and I just have to hope it doesn't rain too hard until then. I also had to call off work to spend most of my morning cleaning 20 pounds or so of glass out of my back seat.

Needless to say, I wasn't exactly in the best mental state to give a 2 hour concert tonight, but you can't back out of that kind of thing the day of. *sigh*

At least you don't live in Uzbekistan, which is a plus. I am sorry about that, it must really suck.

AT got screwed. As a musician this crap plays with your mental state and makes an evening's performance difficult.
I hope your night went well AT and you worked through it.

What did you do to piss sombody off? Or can't you remember?
AndrewT
Honestly there's not a person in the world I consider to be an enemy. I'm at least cordial with people I dislike, and nobody has shown any signs of contempt or hatred to my face. I can only assume it was some fuck-off who wanted to ruin something pretty.

Didn't your mama teach you not to flaunt the affluence? At least not without living in a gated community.

Probably drunk on beer.
AndrewT
Nah, my mom's got a nicer Mercedes than I do. Of course, my parents live in the DC area, where Mercedes are a pretty middle-class car.

I'd say it's because you button the top button of your polo-shirts... snob. abs-cheers.gif
AndrewT
I don't have any sexy chest hair to flaunt, so why bother? And buttoned-up polo shirts are a field day compared to tux shirts.
grey boy
Don't let strange looking guys borrow your car again.
Grim
Especially if they're going to have a hobo take photos of 'em pissin' on the inside of your car door... that's just wrong.
AndrewT
Nothing wrong with marking the ol' territory every once in a while...

Oh fudge. Not again.

I'm thinking it goes beyond that. The love of a man and his machine... harhar.gif
AndrewT
Nah, there aren't any good places to put it ther--- I mean, I would never do something like that. My girlfriend would be horrified, next time I inflate her.
Grim
Does she have an inlet for pursing your dericious™ lips against? Tube-shaped? Wrinkly and battlescarred like CGs?
jacal01
Why would you want to even tell her?? Do you have like a confrontation every time you go parking?

The sad thing is that most of the shit like this is random. Regular and severe beatings of insolent children must again resume. It is the only cure.

The silly thing is that the car cost less than most of the Toyotas and comparable cars that we were looking at. The Mercedes is obviously a few years older than they were ('97), but it has under 90k miles and is a manufacturer I'd trust more (as does my dad, who's big on auto mechanics).

At least they could've had some taste and vandalized some of the uglier cars in the lot. There's a shiny brown H2 at our building with the ugliest chrome rims I've seen. Probably cost twice as much as my Mercedes too.

That is the sagest thing I've heard in weeks.

Beating insolent children with sage...

Sounds like a right proper O-Bomb.gif! LARS!.gif

Kids these days....

Yes, corporal punishment must resume....

When I was a punk kid, we had respect for people's hard earned personal property..

We only vandalized public property! (and paid dearly for it!)
AndrewT
The official insurance inspector estimated the damage at $3200, but on the plus side I get a free rental car for up to 30 days while the car's in the shop.

They sure picked a crappy time to screw with my life, I had another concert tonight, and another one on sunday, a recital next sunday, and concert on wednesday. ranting.gif
Lord Stanley
That was your car? Sorry about that.

By the way, can I have my rock back?

that really sucks. I hope things get better. Right now would probably be the worst time to destroy a car, that's just evil

While next week would be way better?
AndrewT
Actually, 2 weeks from now would be ideal. My last concert's on the 5th, and from then on the rest of the school year's rather relaxing. I was close to the breaking point of dealing with stuff right before this happened, and I've kinda turned into some sort of crazed antisocial hermit (not that far of a stretch for me).

Need to call the police to get a copy of the police report, schedule a time with the dealership to get it repaired, call insurance company and fax them the police report, then set up the rental car to be delivered while repairs are taking place. Then I also have orchestra rehearsal, a poster to make for a concert on the 1st, and a test to make for my students tomorrow. Arrrgggh.

And it took every bit of, what, 10 seconds between having a brain fart, finding a suitable projectile, and inflicting themselves on your life.
