    Low down dirty ******* kids

    On Friday night, I went out after work with a few friends for some low-key drinks, a good way to unwind after a week of work (and tbh, a fairly crappy day I'd had).

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, the next morning I discovered that while I'd been out enjoying myself, some lowlife scumbag kids had taken the liberty of jumping up and down on the roof of my $10000 car, which had been parked at the train station, and caused several thousand dollars worth of damage. From looking at the shoe prints, at least three different people had a go.

    I tried to report this to the local police the next morning, only to be told they were too busy. So I went to the next town and reported there, where they were much nicer. Unfortunately, the cop told me that although they could get prints from the handprint on the rear windscreen, the offender would just claim that he had been leaning on the car.

    So I'm feeling rightly hacked off over this. Make me feel better. Anyone out there been shafted by petty criminals?

    Had my car broken into sitting on my own driveway about 18 months ago.

    Cracked the plastic on my steering column trying to (unsuccessfully) hot-wire it & buggered up the ignition key slot but luckily I had been arsed to take out my stereo that night.

    Scary thing is my girlfriend & I were both in that night & neither of us heard anything!

    I can't believe that meeting James could bring someone down so much.

    I had a car stolen once.

    The thieves left their previous vehicle - a milk float.

    Long story - might bore a few of you with it one day.

    It was worth much more - there was a gallon of milk in the back and it pulled better up hills

    This year have only had two - 1) Some idiot drove into the side of my car (which was parked on the side of the road) leaving a scratch all down one side, smashing the rear view mirror and leaving a dent. They didn't stop...

    2) Bike stolen from inside garage by someone walking past.

    One of my mates had his tyres slashed and then his bonnet tagged within a week of each other.

    Once it was after a game of cricket, after packing up his gear and going to head home, found the tyres slashed.

    The other time was at 3:30am when he left his car out the front of my place, and we could hear a "ruckus" outside, and in the morning it'd been tagged.

    Hmm, my cars an old pile of poo (N Reg Corsa), so tends to get targeted, as it doesnt have an alarm

    First time, around the corner from my house (cant park out the front due to yellow lines) bent the doors back to get in, smashed the glove box open and stole all the CD's, though the stereo wasnt in there (my building society book was though, which has my signature in, luckily they didnt see it). It was just before christmas, so there were a couple of cards in there i'd forgot to take out. They opened them and apparently the one from my grandma was supposed to have 20 in......
    Glove box is to this day still held closed by super strong sellotape

    Since then they've smashed my wingmirror, keyed the doors (not that i'd notice as the car is rusting anyway, and theres welding marks from when it needed strengthening to pass the MOT), windowipers smeared with paint so that when i used them the screen would be covered! Also had the windowipers stolen (not just the blades, the whole arms!)

    Also got done a few times outside my student house, bent the other door to get in (so inconsiderate, could've at least used the one already broke!), but i'd learnt not to leave anything in, so they gave up after a few times. They did have one go at nicking it, bent the steering column to break the steering lock and put a screwdriver in the ignition. So now the wheels at a bit of an angle and the key might stick from time to time.

    THe one that REALLY annoyed me though was about 15 months ago. Was going to see Man Utd play Arsenal. Parked the car outside my uncles in Old Trafford (a police officer no less!), as i was walking getting out i thought i'd leave my stereo hidden, as its too big for my pocket and would fall out in the stadium. I hid it under the A-Z's in the drivers door.

    Came back, door bent. A-Z on chair, stereo gone. They'd clearly watched me put it there, as it was well hidden, and NOTHING else in the car was moved (the CD's were still on the other side, and a pair of Burberry sunglasses that were within an inch of the stereo hadnt been seen in the dark)
    The match was a boring draw and i caught a cold sat there in the rain. Last time i treat me cousin to the footie.
