Why Vandalise My Car?

10 06 2012

This morning I woke up to find that both my wing mirrors had been damaged. The driver’s side just had the glass removed and the passenger side mirror was damaged beyond repair. If it was the first instance of this happening, it would be annoying but this is the second time someone has damaged the wing mirrors on my car in the last nine months or so. It begs the questions why are these people vandalising my car and what are they getting out of it?

My car is now no longer roadworthy since I only have one mirror. I think the law will allow me to drive the car to somewhere to get the mirrors fixed but I have found that I won’t need to do that (all I can say is, thank God for eBay!). I’m now just waiting for the replacements and should have a roadworthy car in two or three days, which makes me happier.

Now usually, my car being classed as unroadworthy wouldn’t bother me too much; I hardly use my car. However, I’m 38 weeks pregnant and I could end up going into labour at any time but transport has become an issue. I just have to hope that I don’t go into labour over the next couple of days until the car is back to being roadworthy.

Since this is the second time that this has happened, we’ve decided to think about moving. We have two months left on our lease but if we do move, it means we’ve moved six times in the space of three years; it’s starting to get a little excessive! We’ll be moving with a newborn and the last thing I want to do is end up moving too far. I’ve been on the hunt for places close by (within 15 miles or so) and within budget. There are some nice places but it will stretch our budget – possibly a little too much. All I can do is wait for my partner to get back home from work to go through what I’ve found to see if he agrees that the budget can be stretched. Granted, stretching the budget means an extra bedroom, closer to the train station for my partner (some with a change of station and a shorter commute to work) and some with a garage for the car. I think they’re worth the extra money…

Anyway, enough of the rant. I just had to get that off my chest before I exploded. While I say thank God for eBay, I should also say thank God for my blog! A place I can get my thoughts out so I can get on with the rest of things on my to-do list.
