Yeah! We were vandalized last night!



All THREE of our vehicles have this symbol spray painted on it. The cop who came to make the report said he had 3 or 4 other people who had called with the same complaint.


We have a 70lb part Rott, who normally sleeps in the living room and would have never let them get away with this quietly, but last night she slept with me. The bedroom is the opposite side of the house as the driveway. Hubby doesn't like her in bed with us, but I've been having really bad back pain for a week and a half and I have been keeping him up with my painful moans when I toss and turn. He slept in the guest bed, so I let our baby girl sleep with me last night. Grrrr... what luck, eh?

That sucks! Man, I hate this kind of crap! I hope they catch the little bastard who did it and give you a chance to use his spray can on his face!

At least they could have been creative with their graffiti. That thing sucks.

Sorry to hear that skeet.

this is the kind of shit that pisses me off. I hope they catch the bastard(s) and make them pay. They are probably punk kids, but I'd sue him anyway; might as well piss the parents off and have them administer their own punishments to the kid(s).

When I read this part: "We have a 70lb part Rott, who normally sleeps in the living room", I thought you were going to say the same symbol was sprayed on the dog as well.

What a painful lesson to learn about letting your dog sleep with you.



But hey-it could be worse.

I just found out a woman I know was killed last night after complaining to her landlord about loud music. The dummy told the neighbor who complained, they knocked on her door and shot her dead.

Oh it could definitely be worse. At least they didn't spray the house (which is brick)!

My husband wants to buy a security system now.

Fucking punks ruining other people's stuff for fun.

Maybe if the parents were held financially responsible, they'd be able to control these pricks.

What would a security system do for painted cars outside? A motion light may scare them away, or it may help them see better when painting.

I have a street-light at the end of the driveway, and my car has been broken into. My dog didn't hear that either.

ANARCHY: Popular among school aged children today, this symbol for anarchy fits the message that pervades the most popular video games, role-playing games, movies and television. The lines of the "A" often extend outside the circle. To many satanists and other fast-growing occult groups it represents their slogan, "do what thou wilt." A former occultist explained that it represents the ASMODEAS: a demonic force driving teenagers toward sexual perversion and suicide.

That has to be the worst Anarchy symbol I've ever seen. Artistically speaking those little rat-bastards should be hung by their balls.....

That'll teach you to kick the hubby out for the dog.

Seriously, sorry to hear that skeet, I just don't understand why some kids have to destroy or take other people's property.

how can you be sure it was kids? maybe your husband did it to convince you to get a security system.

Uh, you must be thinking this is the snobby elitist photo critique thread, it is not.

I think they were trying to paint this:

I can only hope that you have full coverage instead of just liability. If not, just paint another one on the opposite side to make your cars look matched.

I know nothing of spray paint & car paint.. Can this just be scrubbed off or do you have to get the whole part of the car repainted?

Actually, I think brick might be easier to clean. Still a pain in the ass.

I'm pretty sure they are financially responsible for the actions of their minor children. The trick is catching them.

If you caught it early enough, you may have been able to get at it with some bug&tar remover or goof-off. When it dries it will be much harder to deal with.
