What? Did I forget to mention...

...that my car got broken into the other weekend? Oh, it did. But nothing was stolen. No, apparently some teenagers broke the window just for the hell of breaking a window. Two other cars were vandalised in the same way on the same night. A neighbour witnessed it and phoned the police - who didn't show up until much, much later. And as far as we're aware, are not doing anything about the matter. Lucky us.

Sadly, this is just the latest in the misfortunes of my poor little car. It was bought brand-new in 2002. Then I decided to learn how to drive in the thing, and put a huge dent in the front bumper trying to reverse out of our garage. Then N decides to leave it outside the house one night (the only night EVER) and the other bumper is dented. Then it's left undriven for awhile, the battery goes dead. We fixed it. Then the battery goes dead. And again... and then finally replace the alternator. Oh dear. I feel a little sorry for it really, it's been so badly mistreated.


  1. My goodness that car has been through a lot!! That stinks it was broken into. That happened to us recently; someone got into the car and mangled the ignition and steering column trying to steal it but didn't take anything out of it. Of course the cops can't do much so all it does is leave you feeling violated. Hrmph.

  2. Wow that sucks...I'm so sorry!
