Horrible Vandalism

Let me start by saying thank god this is NOT my car...

I was walking to the gym tonight and passed by a local body shop. I noticed this Bimmer in the parking lot. It looks like somebody slashed all four tires and dumped paint all over it. There was also a fair amount of paint in the interior. My only guess is vandalism or a pissed off ex.

Ugh, that's just pathetic. People seriously have too much time and too few neurons.
The night my brother got his 328, and I got mine, both were parked outside. I had been reading the manuals like the bible and went to return them to the car, I come back inside bitching how birds pooped on my car, my dad laughs and comes outside with me and says "...your car got egged." (both BMWs did, mom's car untouched)
A few weeks later my brothers 3 and dad's AMG both got keyed by the trunk (some $1500-2000 paint job total for both)...mom's car untouched again.

If it was an angry ex, that guy probably must've been sleeping with the girls mother or something to do that kind of damage...

Maybe someone egged your car because you're a kid who's daddy bought him a super nice BMW?

I'm not saying that's an excuse, but it could be the reason.

Oh, BTW, there is a black celica with HK[hello kitty] mod in my apt parking lot. I will shoot a photo soon.. lol

I fail to see your distinction... The car was vandalized by some said perpetrator known as a vandal. The detailed social history and association of who that vandal is does not change the fact that he or she acted out through vandalism of someone else's property.

What if this woman was jailed and tatooed on her forehead "hope it was worth it".

In Singapore, they whip you for spraying cars. President Clinton pleaded with them to not whip an American teenager. They compromised and cut down the number of whips to 4.

Speaking of President Clinton, he should be glad that nobody sprayed the presidential limo like this woman did. Impeachment is nothing compared to the BMW sprayed.

You guys may also be familiar with this...



Vandalism for revenge - however wrong - had purpose for the person exacting that revenge. But how often people do it simply... because. That's what I don't get. Kids mostly, I would have to assume... And if not kids, then certainly infantile behaviour!

Well, in this case the person was doing the owner a favor, not vandalism but an act of benevolence, since he/she was driving an Audi.

Now he can get a BMW

Could be. People seem to hate anyone who's financially more fortunate. Even your first line has an undertone of derision.

I think the woman in pink actually was a previous "date" of former president Clinton. There were plenty of those in his closet.

Oh... wait... No. That woman in pink actually has a figure....

Leased, not bought, and it's gone now.
At the risk of sounding like a tremendously spoiled brat (like my post about Audrey from MTV), it's still a pretty piss-poor reason. Friend of mine back in highschool had a 330i loaded to the teeth... and that was in '06 - I was more in admiration (hell it's a nice car) than jealousy.

Anyway, point is, it's really disheartening to see people vandalize something you work[ed] hard for. (Yes, I work, daddy doesn't pay for everything )
(Not pickin' a fight.)
