nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

My blood is boiling! I picked my other half up from the pub last night, and parked the buggy up at 11:30pm. Got in, had a few beers and went to bed, as you do on a saturday night
Got up today, and went to leave for work, when
Some muppet, with an IQ of a bloody tadpole, has smashed my window, this is a definite no no
I tried to remain and calm, but all I wanted to do was
What really bugs me, is that they never stole anything, stereo, and £200 pool cue were still in the car! What was the point?
Thats my story, rant over

Sorry to hear that. Look on the bright side, at least a window is easier to fix than a dent or a keying.

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

drivers door window! bought a window from a 146 after extensive measuring, then went to fit it and had a gap of 2/3 mm when window in the full up position!! gutted! had to fone autoglass today, £50 notes for a perspex temp replacement, gonna be £287 for a window, unless my insurance pays! only 3rd party fire and theft, so doubtful. but the bloke said not to call insurance til he speaks to me tomorrow, he'll tell me what to say to get insurance to pay! My policy says theft, attempted theft, blah blah. not covered for mindless *******s who smash windows on a fri night

Sometimes it seems worse if they didn't try to steal anything. Just makes it all the more pointless. Hope you get it fixed soon.

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

Seems odd that there was nothing stolen,any sign of a squashed airgun pellet inside the car anywhere?

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

explosive alfa, I'm in livingston. I do believe I now need to proceed with the autoglass job though, they were ordering a window on sunday. Haven't got back in touch yet though. I did have a breakers in England offer to post one, at a cost of £25 for window, £10 for postage, but would it arrive in one piece?? As for stereo comment, it was reported to police, unless i phone back up and say that the old stereo lying in the passenger footwell was taken! LOL

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

That seems bloody expensive for a replacement window!

I wonder if the ***** that did it even considered the cost. How would he feel if someone stole £280 from his wallet. That's effectively what he's done.

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

Wee man fae autoglass feels sorry for me cos i started the job myself with a window from a 146 that was out by about a degree on the angle of the slope, so he's knocked a whopping £107 off the price!! WHOOP WHOOP!! £50 paid, upon completion another £130. Not as bad as the original £287 quote. Insurance up for renewal in 3 weeks, going fully comp, gonna hit the buggers for a new windscreen!! lmao

Re: nasty vindictive mindless ned vandalism!!!!!

Another update! 3 weeks after the incident, I still have no glass window! It's apparently on back order fae alfa, and the wee man fae autoglass doesn't know the last time anyone waiting 3 weeks for a window! Geez, you'd think I was driving a ferarri or something, I bet ferarri drivers got their windows quicker!
