Why would you bother to key a 1990 Volvo? My car is old enough to vote, now. What did it do to you anyway?

Sorry to hear that Jen. I can't stand pointless s#!+ like that. Grr... Now to figure out how to electrify the exterior of my car...

Sad. Over the years, we have had many non-intended uses of our car by others as well.

"Why" you ask? WHY is the city chopping down a dozen good size trees in the median on South Tacoma Way between S 54th & S 56th??? These trees are relatively new, and added a lot to the area, and now chopped and chipped in no time flat. Started this morning, almost done. Sad.

AP: That is too bad. I don't frequent the area but it's always nice to have greenery scattered about the urban landscape. Though, in the case of Jen's keying, perhaps trees merely present a place for keyers to hide.

Or why would someone steal a hubcap from a 1990 Volvo? (Happened to me last week)

Hah! Well it's not for mine, mine rolled off the car whilst driving more than a year ago. I'm assuming somebody made good use of it, it wasn't in a place where I could go retrieve it.

We do have very nice trees, maybe that's why our cars are messed with so frequently.

On the tree front, I really don't know! But I did get a press release recently from the Metro Parks, about tree removal along Ruston Way. Turns out the existing trees weren't growing at the right rate for that kind of tree and just hadn't really taken as they should, they're being replaced with more appropriate foliage for that location.

Maybe the South Tacoma way thing is a similar deal?

Why would anyone egg my brand new car just days after I got it?

While my car pain was much less permanent, it was just as stupid.

While I was visiting my friend in Chicago we saw a car with the word "BITCH" spray painted on the driver's side door in hot pink. I suppose it could be worse.

Hey ensie, sorry to hear about omelet a la subaru. That totally sucks. You did, however, manage to turn this experience into quite an entertaining read! Anyone who didn't follow the above link should rethink.
