Mindless actions

Howdie all
 
Just a rant
Last night some thoughtless person saw fit to run over my car
 
Scuffed paintwork and my roof is all dented.
 
Im lost for words but so angry
 
Its a 10 year old car, but its my 10 year old car!
 
I am becoming disillusioned with my town and the UK in general
 
People just don't care any more
 
Nite All

    F**king scum who have no doubt never worked for anything so appreciate nothing.

    Sorry to hear that. People doing things like this has happened for decades. Sometimes it happens to us or people we know more regularly and it seems like things are getting worse.

    Yep, as wife pointed out it wasnt an attack at me, just some nob, prop drunk and showing off to his mates. Still galling though. In my youff I would never have done that to anybodys car or treated somebody elses property with such a lack of respect, even when drunk. Big fat hairy YAARRRRRRRG!

    tis indeed a sad state of affairs I find it nigh on impossible now to get a please and thankyou out of most people, and I'm talking about when I hand over money in a shop lol, think general thoughtlessness right up to violence etc is endemic and almost the norm now.

    I have a friend (known him since school) who has just suffered this way 
            He subscribes to the "British dream"  (i.e. him and his wife work long hours to barely make ends meet)  and he has had a variety of knackered old cars. 
           After years of saving , he finally went out and bought a decent car just before xmas -  not talking about anything flash , just a nice mondeo. 
           He woke last week to find the side of the car kicked in , complete with footprints  
           You could see he was gutted , and I felt terrible for him , I do know plenty of guys that can flit from one nice car to another without batting an eyelid.
           OK so it is just a few dents (well , actually quite a few £££ worth of damage IMHO)  but the symbolic aspect is what made me sad  - 5 years or so of saving what he can after working stupid hours to pay the mortgage etc.  and some faceless little twat comes along and stomps on it  
     
      ......Makes you wonder why you bother ? 

    No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

    Too true my next motor will be a saab about 1-1.5k higher miler 5 star saftey and they are good for 250/300k

    The worry is not worth the hassle,parking,bad roads,ding & knocks in the car park.

    Funny as you say some have loads of nice things with no hassle then someone else well...

    I only see it getting worse as the two things which teach people are vanashing working hard for things and getting punished for doing wrong.

    Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    Only of course in Gt Britain that will get you in a LOT more trouble than the slap on the wrist that the guy who kicked the car in would get if he were caught...
     
    Mate of mine has been very succesful in the motor trade (worked his way up from literally nothing), drives a Nissan Primera. I asked him why he didnt get a decent car once - he's got loads of cash and good contacts in the industry, and he said he's had them in the past - Porsche, Lambo, etc but in east London (where he does most of his business) you cant park them anywhere without them getting kicked in or keyed and he just got tired of it.
     
    So he's worked hard and made all that money, and he literally cant spend it on what he wants because of how other people will react/behave

    funnily enough was talking about this yest when out on bike ride.
     
    one of the lads got his new bemmer scratched and keyed.  he says it feels tainted now, hes gonna blow it up and get insurance.
     
    im pretty sure in my ****1sh youth i never trshed someones car.  i prob did other bad things but for some reason someones pride and joy no matter how sh1t should never be touched in my book.
     
    hence why i have bangers and everyone else does by me

    Completely agree with this, some people have no manners, customers even but i was always bought up to say please and thankyou, and no matter how bad the cashier is i will always say thanks very much or words to that affect.
    Is a shame people feel the need to vandalise other peoples belongings, even when drunk ive never done it, just a sad state of affairs sometimes

    Exactly.
    I did some regrettable stuff when I was young and stupid including damaging people's property.
    I feel ashamed of the things I did now, and probably would have done then if someone had confronted me and told me to think about what I had done.
    Nowadays I have huge respect for other people's property, so I think it's a bit pessimistic to say these people are lost to society forever.

    Nothing to do with 'the youth of today'. It's something I did as a teen (run over a car) and it's something that will happen when my kids are teens and when their kids are teens.
    Alcohol + a group of lads on their home = mindless vandalism.

    Thankfully most grow out of it. I imagine the people doing it are probably thoughtful and considerate when sober but just turn into nobs after a few pints.
