That's what I get for having nice things...

I just got off work at midnight and found that someone smashed my back window in, looks like with a baseball bat. Its been raining since 7.

I just washed and waxed and detailed my car before I went to work at 3:30. I guess thats what I get for treating a family sedan like a show car.

Thats horrible! People like that make me mad. Luckily I've never had that happen. Your trep is a really nice looking car and there is no shortage of idiots in the world unfortunately. Hope it doesn't cost you too much to fix.

I hate to be an ass but you didn't leave anything in plain sight did you? Anything worth stealing left on the front seat will ask for the stealing? I have learned this lesson the hard way myself. I am sorry to hear this, blue.

You're not an ass. I had nothing of value in the car, and they didn't try to steal anything anyway- it was just a small hole from the initial impact (about the size of the end of the bat) and the rest of the glass just cracked out from that. All I had in view was a cell phone charger, an ice scraper, and an umbrella, and a tape deck adapter for my mp3 player. The mp3 player in my purse with me at my desk. Everything else in my car is worthless anyway- asperin, tire guage, pens, etc. Nothing at all of value. Just some jackass decided it would be fun to smash my window.

I've got a $250 deducitble and will file the claim tomorrow. I already filed a police report but nothing will come of it because I have no witnesses, and the parking lot doesn't have cameras.

All I can think of is that I detailed my car in the parking lot of my apartment and someone may have thought it would be funny to smash my car right after I just detailed it. But I can't think of any specific person, or anything I did that may have pissed anyone off, even at work. :(

Lets hunt them down!

I had someone do that to my car once, then I caught him doing it to someone else's car in the same lot a few days later. He was dropping chunks of patio stone off a roof and onto the cars. After a little sweet revenge, I called the police and they came and got him, he was from the psych hospital ( Highbury Hilton as we called it ).

Sorry to hear that someone is a hater of your car , it happens allot around my place ( bad neighborhood ) but we are lucky no one has dared do anything ..

Only at a car show once , we left the car alone for a few min and came back to find coke splashed all over the side of the car ...

People just don't know how to respect other peoples things .

Sorry to hear about the window.

I had someone smash my drivers side window few months back to steal a cheap MP3 player. I left it lying around because I didnt think people were so petty. 275$ and a 25 mile drive later, I had a new window. Since then, Ive had my windows tinted and I leave nothing in sight. I figure if i leave cellphone chargers, mp3 plugs, or anything of the sort visible then a thief will think those things are in the car. I dont even leave my radar detector in sight, its up above the sun strip on my windshield.

10 days after I bought my Civic, it was keyed. Right after I washed and waxed my '88 Aries, and it glistened in the sunlight, it was keyed. My mom's Toyota Sienna van was keyed when she was at work one day. Figure those out.

Why would you wax an Aries?

I want to see pics of it, I don't believe there is such a thing as a " glistening Aries "
